By starting the Newark Valley Farmers Market we have had an honor of meeting a lot of great people that live in our community that we had no clue about!
One of those such people is Robin from Anura Liquid Soap!
What is Anura?
"Anura is a special formulation of recipes designed by
a nature-loving chemist. The balance of ingredients in each liquid soap
blend was thoughtfully selected to promote healthy hair and skin. Anura
is founded on the philosophy that many of the desirable tactile
characteristics of commercialized liquid soaps may be achieved without
the use of industrial additives and by using natural ingredients alone."
We have had the honor of being able to test and sample some of her products.
she first gave it to us my instant reaction was it was a little watery.
The smell was amazing. Very aromatic. We were using it for a few days
and it definitely grew on me.
It was not as sudsy as soap you buy in the store. But I know suds
don't necessarily mean that it is not cleaning. After using it you
could just feel the cleanliness on your hands.
Another thing that SOLD me on this soap was:
extremely hard water and even with cleaning the sink frequently we get a
lot of calcium build up. Eric Sr was washing his hands and a drop of
the soap got on the faucet. All he did was wipe it off with his hand and
I could not believe my eyes. The faucet shimmered. It was cleaner than
if I had spent time scrubbing it.
Honey Matcha Facial Soap with Peppermint Oil:
I smelled it first because of course that is what you do with everything.
It smelled of honey.
I took a dab and rubbed it between my fingers and you could feel
the stickiness of the honey. Being that it was raw honey you could also
feel some of the wax particles from the come that the honey was squeezed
I had been outside all day long and it was 80 degrees or so. I
was sweating like crazy and my face was absolutely disgusting. No better
time than now to use it.
I wet my face and rubbed it all over. It had this creamy yet
exfoliating feel to it. It was sticky on my face which kind of felt
weird. It felt like I was just rubbing honey on my face. But I continued
to rub it on and let it sit for a little bit.
I then washed it off and it took a little bit more water than normal to get it off because the honey was kind of sticky.
But the feeling after I got it off was absolutely Amazing. It
felt like I had just had a facial at a beauty salon. I could feel my
pores opening up and my face felt so clean.
I don't like the feeling that I get from facial washes in the
store because they make my face feel like it is sandpaper dry after I
was it off. I can't stand that feeling.
This left my face feeling clean, my pores open but it was not dry. It was moist and fresh!
I LOVE this stuff. I will continue to buy it over and over again. It is all natural which comforts me with my children using it. It also comes from a local producer which supports our effort in buying everything local.
Great job Robin. I believe your product is awesome and I can't wait to try more and watch your product line grow!
