If you’re looking for a way to lather, scrub and generally pamper your skin all over, you’ll definitely want to check out the Suga’ on Topline of body products. With sugary names like Mango Mint (in our October COCOTIQUE Box!), Sweet Amber, and Vanilla Dream, the products hint at a sweet surprise just inside the packaging. Keep reading to learn more about how the brand got its start from one of the co-founders, Kelly Briggs, and to find out how you can incorporate their body products into your every day pampering routine.
What inspired you to start Suga’ on Top?
Initially Iris had a small catering business; being in the kitchen comes naturally to her. During the time she had the catering business her daughter started developing small dark, dry patches on her skin; which turned out to be eczema. Iris and I then began to research natural ways to soothe her irritated skin. We used that research and began mixing ingredients from her pantry and combining them with various essential and natural oils and through trial and error, she was finally able to produce products that worked well with her daughter’s skin. We now call (those products) our Thirsty Skin line. From there Iris began making various products with various scents for friends and family on special occasions. If it were up to her she would have continued giving the items as gifts. It was my entrepreneurial mindset that led us into business.
What were the first 5 steps you took when you decided to start your company?
What advice would you give to customers about taking care of their skin and how do Suga’ on Top products help?
We educate our customers on the importance of exfoliation. Removing dead skin cells from atop the skin leaves it smooth and radiant. This process not only leaves your skin glowing but it allows your moisturizer to penetrate properly. Suga’ on Top has a great line of sugar scrubs made with fine ingredients that will quench the thirst of even the driest skin. The Suga’ Body Glaze is just one of our products that moisturizes and hydrates the skin. We have six different scents, Mango Mint, Pink Suga, Warm Honey, Vanilla Dream, Him, Storm, and our fragrance free line called Thirsty Skin.
How can a woman fit pampering with Suga’ on Top into her every day beauty routine?
Our skin is something that we just cannot ignore no matter how busy we are. It’s our largest organ. Suga’ On Top products cleanse, moisturize and protect the skin from the environment. We all have to shower and moisturize our bodies, so do it the Suga’ way; ”Lather and Layer with Suga’™.
What should our subscribers know about the Body Glaze they are receiving in their October boxes?
Mango Mint Glaze happens to be one of our top sellers! Infused with mango and mint essential oils, this four-oil blend is a lightweight, non-greasy oil that easily absorbs into the skin. You don’t need to use much of the product. A little goes a long way!
