AP: What made you decide to open a business?
GSL: Wanting safer and natural products to heal my children's and loved ones skin issues we started making different products about 21 years ago. We were a home base business and joined our local farmer's market (we opened our first store at the end of the FM season) and within 3 years of opening our first store, we are now in 4 locations, our Lansdale location has moved twice for larger space, and we also offer organic services with the products made on location in Lansdale.
AP: What’s your most popular item?
GSL: "After Shower Moisturizing Cream" it is the cream that I made for my son's eczema and helps all dry skin issues including psoriasis too! We make 4-8 batches a week of this cream. It truly is amazing!
AP: What make’s your community special?
GSL: I love that Ambler is a walkable town, the residents love their town and always stop in to say hi, I love that! The visitors love that Ambler has a lot to offer, I hear it everyday that Ambler needs more retail, small shops etc. I would love to see more retail to accommodate everyone who walks up and down our streets. It would be the icing on the cake!
AP: Where can customers find your specials?
