Hello I am Holly Port owner of Lotion Bar Cafe and Lotion Bar Cafe Studio. I need more than a village to run Lotion Bar Cafe I have my very own squad! I would love for you to meet my amazing team. But first a little about Lotion Bar Cafe:
Lotion Bar Cafe is located in southern Colorado Springs, Colorado. Started in 2007 after a fun-filled yule log hunt. We stopped off to pick up a prize my son had won from finding the yule log. We went into this store that was very cute in Woodland Park. There were these bars that were poured into a candy type mold and they were very oily. On our way down the mountain we talked about making them for my family gifts. With some painted, old, terra-cotta dishes, nearly 30 espressos and 15 batches later… we had the perfect lotion bar. Not too oily or greasy. Only using the best ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, and great oils like grape seed, castor, sweet almond. The family loved them and I would bring the left overs to work and use the bars at the restaurant I worked at. I always had my hands in water and after using the lotion bars my hands never felt so good! Voila’! That's how it was started! Seems like only yesterday that we would be up til all hours of the night! I now make all natural body treats which include handcrafted soaps,lotions, lotion bars, fizzies, lip balms, scrubs, and now mineral eye shadow. I have an amazing husband, the F-Bomber (fizzy bomber) he makes all the bath bombs in house. I have two amazing boys that have helped for 10 years.
