Our Customers Say...
The new look of your web site is a plus to the already fantastic products, prices, and customer service. Your expertise, service and integrity keep me a a loyal customer. Thank you Jen!
Melanie, (Herbal Natures)

These guys work in timely manner for sure. After I placed my order on Internet they called me in about 15 min because they had some questing about my address. They also made sure that the method of shipment would meet my needs. The little dish that I got was chipped - they sent me the replacement in no time. I haven't yet made any lotions from the ingredients I've got. I will and I'll tell you my opinion soon! Olga

This company is absolutely amazing. Time of order vs. time of delivery is one of my number one determiners for using different companies. Lotioncrafter is insanely fast with completing orders. The staff is also extremely friendly and knowledgeable when you call. I give them 5 stars and highly recommend them. High quality products, fast turn time, excellent customer service!
Eliza Russell, (Vintage Body Care)

I've been swinging my hair all day thanks to the silk amino acid product! This isn't the first time I've had amazing results using it, but I don't always get super shiny and flexible hair immediately after a henna treatment. My hair is shoulder length and relaxed. but I'll be able to postpone my next chemical treatment thanks to the SAA. I'll be ordering the largest size since the shelf life is a year. I'll probably try the argan oil too thanks to someone's review. :-)
