If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 (beauty & wellness) products could you not live without? (You have food and water)
If I was stranded on a desert island and could only choose 3 beauty and wellness products to have with me, I would choose to have the 3 most versatile and multi-purpose products possible. I could not live without cloth wipes from our shop, body food from Urban Oreganics and thieves essential oil from Young Living.
What’s your favorite part about running Marley’s Monsters?
My favorite part of running Marleys Monsters is the creative process of making. I just love making things, especially things that reduce waste, are multi-functional and help the environment. One of my favorite parts about the process is finding ways to utilize every piece of fabric, which is how I came up with the idea to start making facial rounds. They are small enough to utilize all the scraps left from my other products, which gives me the ability to have a large variety of fun prints in each pack and reduce waste.
What’s a trend in the beauty industry you’d like to see grow?
When I am on the hunt for new beauty products, I always ask myself these top 3 questions:
1.) Does it contain all natural ingredients?
2.) Is it cruelty-free?
3.) Is it safe for the environment?
When I find a product that meets these requirements AND works well, I’m hooked! I would love to see more all-natural and eco-friendly products that work well in the beauty industry.
Of the products you make, which is your favorite?
Of the products I make, cloth wipes are my favorite. They are so versatile! Our family of four goes through at least 100 of them every few days. Then we just wash and re-use. From cloth diapering to napkins to tissues, cloth wipes work wonders. They eliminate so many disposable products and save our family money.
What sets Marley’s Monsters apart from other lines on the market today?
The thing that sets Marley’s Monsters apart from other companies in the industry is not only the re-usability of our products, but also the ability to customize. We love to offer the customer the ability to have fun and choose prints for their re-usable products. It makes our customers excited to help the environment! My favorite thing is hearing from customers how happy it makes them or their children to use our products every day, because the specific prints they chose are unique to them.
