The Story of My Serenity Bath and Body
I first started making lotion for my own personal use. I was tired of half-used bottles under the sink that seemed too expensive to throw away but frankly didn't work. I didn't like applying it in the morning, and in the middle of the day, left wondering did I apply lotion this morning...
I set about like a mad scientist trying different formulas with what were good ingredients. After a LOT of trial and error, I started with a basic lotion base I found for the texture and whipped in coconut oil, shea butter, apricot oil, aloe, vitamin e. Part of the mad scientist was discovering that the order of adding the ingredients made a BIG difference in the final product. THIS works, this I LOVE.
I quickly came to realize there were lots of other women like me, who wanted something that WORKED. With my husband's encouragement, “My Serenity Body Lotion” was born. Over time I added other products for personal needs or by request from friends and customers. I became an LLC company when I started selling beyond friends and family. The lotion name didn't really fit anymore, but it wasn't until 2021 that I started to switch things to the name My Serenity Bath and Body.
A few years before my husband passed from cancer, we did one of those Facebook couple quizzes. One question on the quiz that I asked him... If I am ever famous, what would I be famous for... His reply, your lotion.
I may not become famous, and that is fine by me. I will keep making My Serenity Bath and Body products for myself and everyone else that wants products that work and are good for your skin without breaking the bank.
