The Vermont Simple Beauty Company produces high quality, handcrafted personal and home care products, or “simple luxuries made from simple ingredients.” They believe that less is more and strive to make products with as few ingredients as possible. The results are “products you can feel good about using in your home and on your body.”
Owner Sheri Abild, in the process of leaving her job as a massage therapist and finding something else to do, “decided one day to take a crack at making my own home pedicure products,” she explained. She thought of starting her own line of products and pitched the idea to her husband. “He very sweetly agreed to support my idea, and so after months of a lot of trial and error, Vermont Simple Beauty was born,” which was right around this time three years ago. The beauty product line “began in our home in Brownsville, Vt., and moved to its own location in neighboring Windsor, Vt. in January of 2018.”
Abild has two goals for Vermont Simple Beauty: to make products only from safe and simple ingredients and to “develop these products to be as good as, or in most cases, better performing than the highly chemically concocted competitors.” Her products are made in small batches with formulas she has developed and patented over time.
Vermont Simple Beauty products include body scrubs, essential oils, gift sets, hair and face products, lip balms, moisturizing creams and soaps, soy candles, and more. “My favorite product is our moisturizing cream,” Abild said. “It took us over a year to research and develop it and bring it to market, and the pursuit was well worth the effort. The cream is an argon oil and shea butter based moisturizer, making it very high in vitamin E. It’s a strong moisturizer, but has a surprisingly light and non-greasy feel to it.”
Abild attends local arts and craft fairs throughout New England with her line of products. That schedule for 2019 will be posted on the company’s website when it has been finalized. There are a number of local retailers that carry the Vermont Simple Beauty line, and you can also purchase any of their products online at www.vermontsimplebeauty.com.
Vermont Simple Beauty doesn’t have regular hours, but people are always welcome to stop by. “We request that people visit us by appointment by giving us the heads up that they wish to come by,” Abild says. She can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
