Online PR News – 21-April-2014 – Tampa, Florida – Popular Tampa-based soap company Sweet Harvest Farms (www.sweetharvestfarms.com) will have its all natural, handmade Amore soap bar and Amore Belle Parfume included in an exclusive The Artisan Group® Earth Day 2014 Gift Bag, to be delivered in time for the holiday to 25 of Hollywood’s most eco-conscious celebrities.
The Artisan Group® Earth Day Gift Bag, which is comprised entirely of eco-friendly handcrafted items from members, will go to Jessica Alba, Emma Watson, Edward Norton, Adrian Grenier, Will.i.am, Robert Redford, Leonardo DiCaprio, Drew Barrymore, Woody Harrelson, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Ted Danson, Meryl Streep, Cameron Diaz, John Mayer, Geena Davis, Barbra Streisand, Alicia Silverstone, Ian Somerhalder, Lisa Kudrow, Mark Ruffalo, Natalie Portman, Rachel McAdams, and Neil Patrick Harris.
Sweet Harvest Farms' proprietor, Cynthia Young-Jennings, chose to gift celebrities the Amore soap bar and Parfume because it is considered one of the company’s most popular scents by both men and women. The Amore soap bars are handmade with organic shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil and sustainable palm oil; rosemary extract; orris root; vitamin E, molasses and other oils and herbs that are good for your skin. The bar has colloidal oatmeal within and sprinkled on top. Colloidal oatmeal helps calm and soften itchy skin, molasses is said to provide healing qualities and brown sugar is then added for a light exfoliation. The scent is reminiscent of all things alluring and sensual yet has a subtle, refreshing quality that works for both sexes. The soap doubles as a beard-softening, rich-lathering shaving bar. A 7 oz. bar retails for $6.98 and lasts 6 to 8 weeks in the shower.
Amore Belle Parfume is a roll-on for scent lovers who want a more natural choice of what they apply to their skin. Organic coconut oil, jojoba oil and vitamin E form the base of the perfume; and there are no Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, Phosphates, Harsh Chemicals, Mineral Oils, Petroleum products, or scent extenders in any of Sweet Harvest Farms products- just pure unadulterated oil. The generously sized 1.25 ounce glass vial is perfect for purse, drawer, and car and makes on-the-go touch-ups easy. Belle Parfumes start at $25.00.
Recipients of The Artisan Group's® gift bag will find their Sweet Harvest Farms Amore Soap Bar and Parfume wrapped in a soft burlap bag with 100% cotton muslin and natural twine. The bag is the perfect size for creative re-purposing. Both the soap (http://www.sweetharvestfarms.com/handmadesoap.html) and the parfume (http://www.sweetharvestfarms.com/belleparfume.html) can be purchased on the company’s website and at boutiques and spas worldwide.
Cynthia is an award winning photographer, folk-artist and writer, who has enjoyed creative endeavors since her youth. Her interest in handmade soap blossomed when she realized the handmade soaps she was familiar with were not as handmade, nurturing, hydrating or pure as she thought they should be.
Sweet Harvest Farms was founded in 1994 which carried Cynthia’s own line of dresses, hand-painted Folk-Art and antiques, but the business quickly turned into a serious “bath and body pursuit” after Cynthia’s No More Eczema Bar and Raze Acne Bar became a must have by customers who wouldn’t use anything else. Today, Sweet Harvest Farms caters to bath, body and home with a full line of luxurious, natural handmade soaps, body lotions, Shea Butter bars, aroma beads, all natural dog products and spa essentials.
Every Sweet Harvest Farms product is handcrafted in small batches from Cynthia’s own recipes, which are the culmination of on-going research and meticulous testing. Standards like African Black Soap and Pine Tar Soap share the stage with lighthearted choices like Girls Grigio and MaMa’s Merlot. Sweet Harvest Farms’ Dog Soap and steroid free H-Spot Allergy Ointment are lifesavers for those whose pups have sensitive skin, allergy hot spots or who simply want to treat their dogs to an all-natural, organic grooming regimen.
Sweet Harvest Farms has been profiled on Tampa Channel 10, KTLA in Los Angeles, Keep America.org, in FOLK Magazine and the Tampa Daily News. The company’s products have been endorsed by Mariel Hemingway, on www.ShopOpenSky.com, who describes the Shea Butter Bar as her “cure all for areas that need a little extra TLC”. Blog founder Gina Harney said the Goat’s Milk Soaps “leave your skin feeling like ‘buttah’…”
Cynthia emphasizes that this is a family business and would not be able to continue to follow her dream without the support of her husband Duane Jennings. Retiring after 24 years in the US Air Force, Duane now works for the US Government on MacDill, A.FB. in Florida.
"Duane has a stressful position but still finds time to measure and pour the oils needed for my soap once he gets home, helps at the markets and various shows and is an integral part of my success."
Other celebrities who have enjoyed Sweet Harvest Farms products include Tom Cruise, Jim Carey and Robe Lowe.
