Big changes coming for the Simply Stated brand!

It's hard to believe Simply Stated has been around for 6 years now! Man, the changes we have made, obstacles overcome, trials and errors, and overall growth we've seen. 

We started with buying 4 lbs of baking soda to a couple 12 lb bags to now ordering 300 lbs at a time just to keep up with bath bomb and shower steamer production. Let's not talk about the ridiculous amount of glitter we used to use in bath bombs! I am still apologizing to everyone who bought those early bath bombs LOL

We've gone from a small shelf of ingredients and packaging to an entire bedroom and half a basement filled with ingredients, packaging, shelves, molds, gift baskets and more.

In 2015 we were solely selling by word of mouth from coworkers. Now we're a LLC, have the website, email lists, craft shows and virtual events throughout the year, and multiple wholesale accounts. 

We started with no knowledge aside from recipes on Pinterest, simply to have as a hobby for us since we both have a love of crafting. Years later, we've attended numerous conferences and trainings to learn more and ensure we're following FDA guidelines, proper usage rates according to IFRA, and so much more. 

All of this, we owe to YOU, our loyal customers, who keep us inspired to keep making and getting better! 

Before we reveal our new brand, let's take a trip down memory lane!

2014/2015...playing around with recipes in the kitchen. At this time we were only using cheapy essential oils *insert face palm here*

2014 first sugar scrub
2016...our first labels! I can still remember the Coconut Lime scrubs. 
2016 first labels on products
2017...we attended our first ever handmade conference and trainings. We learned proper labeling to meet FDA guidelines, preservatives, and how to make lotion. 
2018 gift basket
2018...after another conference with more trainings, we started to perfect our bath bomb recipes. Little did we know, it would take a lot longer than a couple of months to get the perfect recipe to work with various molds and have the color we love.

2019...a pivotal point in our business! Updated website, more labeling updates, filed for a LLC, and professional pictures were thrown in the mix. More conferences and trainings for us.

2020...Covid hit. Need I say more? We worked our damnedest to overcome the pandemic and stay in business. Funny enough, we came out stronger and ready to hit the ground running full-force.

2021...we slowly started to transform our brand. The graphics and "farmhouse look" dissolved.

And finally...a new name and logo. Don't fret, Simply Stated Creations as a whole is still here. We're just expanding! Our bath and body division is now Simply Stated Bath & Body.

Our overall brand got a glow up as well. Out with the lavender and in with sparkle!

We have BIG goals for SSC as a whole. This is just the beginning and I know the best is yet to come. If you're still reading this to the end, THANK YOU for always being there to support us in any way shape or form. 
The Simply Stated team,
Chrissy & Marcia
