Meet the Vendor: Butter & Me
Goodly is a small, woman-owned business, and we love to collaborate with other small businesses that are woman-owned. In the past we’ve introduced you to vendors like Yes Cocktail and Poketo. This month we’d like to tell you all about our dreamy counterpart in lady entrepreneurship, Butter & Me!
Founder Vivian Wong began her self care journey in 2013, when she tried to find effective and natural solutions for her husband, Yik, who has eczema. He had found no relief in over-the-counter products, so Vivian simply started making them on her own, making sure to use only plant-based ingredients. She was thrilled when her concoctions brought him relief and then continued to make all-natural, minimalist skin care products for herself and friends. Positive feedback gave her the confidence to bring her selfcare items to the rest of the world!
We’re so glad Vivian heard that positive feedback. As our own founder and CEO, Brooke English can attest, entrepreneurship isn’t for the faint of heart. “Believing in yourself is the fuel that drives your ability to get up each and every day,” she says. “To keep trying, to keep going, and to keep learning.”
We’re thrilled that Butter & Me kept going! Because we’re 100% behind their philosophy that everyone should be able to enjoy skincare products that are simple in ingredients, yet effective in giving us healthy skin. Of course, that means all natural, plant-based ingredients, but Butter & Me takes it one step further: no plastics. That also includes their packaging! All their products use 100% recyclable or biodegradable packaging and 100% post-consumer recycled shipping materials.
Each of Butter & Me’s plant-based products are derived from no more than five core ingredients and are designed to be multi-purpose. Not only is the Skin Milk, above, a luxurious face and hair mask, it can also be used as a fantastic milk bath and cleanser. Less really is more with Butter & Me!
Best of all, Butter & Me’s skin care products are simply gorgeous. Their tagline is “makers of minimalist, artisan selfcare,” and we think they hit it out of the park on all accounts!
You’ll love displaying these luxe bath items in your bathtub or shower just as much as you’ll love using them! Designed to look like chocolate bars, the decadent Coco Scrub body bars come in delicious scents like matcha vanilla and orange poppy. Polishing away dull skin never looked so good!
Women entrepreneurs are still surprisingly hard to find, and that makes us so happy to have found Butter & Me! You’re sure to love all of their plant-based skincare products. Don’t forget, luxurious bath products make fantastic gifts, even for those who aren’t super stressed out. (Although, we’re not sure we know who any of those people are, but you know what we mean.) We’ve got tons of other bath products to choose from, but make sure you grab yourself some Butter & Me!
