Clean living, its more than a catch phrase, its the entire purpose of Diamond Bird, LLC handcrafted soaps. I recently sat down with Tanisha Bruns, owner and maker of Diamond Bird soaps. We talked about caring for the most important and visible part of your body, your skin. 3 Graces Design Studio is offering Diamond Bird soaps in our Kimono Spa Robe gift bundles and I wanted to learn more about the woman behind these handcrafted soaps
A ‘Rash’ of Discoveries
I asked Tanisha, “Why did you start making your handcrafted soap?” She explained that she had been loyal to a well known brand of commercially made soap but began to notice that her skin was dry, itchy and not healthy. She decided to look at the package to see what was actually in her favorite brand. What she read was a list of ingredients that she couldn’t pronounce, all kinds of chemical additives and preservatives. As a former Army nurse she understood that the soap was not helping her skin and that these products could be harming her. She decided that she needed to learn about soap making and was determined to make high quality soaps from plant-based oils, herbs and free from harmful chemicals and preservatives.
Military Service and Core Values
Tanisha explained that the leadership values of integrity and education that she followed during her military career are core concepts she incorporates into her handcrafted soap business. First and foremost, Tanisha is service oriented. She incorporates customer input on developing new product lines and scents. She is honest about the ingredients in her product. Tanisha prides herself on having 16 or less ingredients in her soaps. She has an Artisan product line that is fragrance soap with micas or lab created coloring, an All Natural line with only essential oil scents and clay or vegetable powder coloring. She also recently added a Vegan line the has no dairy products, honey or Tussah, a type of silk additive. She enjoys educating customers on what ingredients are good for skin and all her ingredients are there to serve a beneficial purpose. Diamond Bird’s products are the highest quality and her customer service values make her product an obvious choice for 3 Graces Design Studio to incorporate into our Spa Bundles.
We are proud to offer Diamond Bird handcrafted soaps in our new Kimono Spa Robe gift bundles. The addition of Diamond Bird to our kimono robes supports another small handcrafted business and provides our customers with a total spa package to make you feel beautiful!
