I hate having to talk about these kinds of things, but there's nothing for it: packaging items, shipping supplies, fragrances, colorants, and especially oil prices have gone up so dramatically that I'll be forced to raise the prices of my products in 2017. I fought against doing it all this year hoping that things would drop again, but they are continuing to climb.
It was over three years ago that my price points were calculated, and the changes in costs are putting me just barely in the black. I'm looking at not just the current state of things, but I am also projecting out five years. The new pricing will remain fixed for at least that long if not permanently.
Not EVERYTHING will increase since newer products were priced accurately and some items have been adjusted over the years. Sugar scrubs will be hit the hardest. (In the interest of full disclosure, I wasn't actually paying myself for sugar scrub production! That's just not sustainable!)
New prices will be as follows:
Lip Balm: $5.49, Tinted Lip Balm: $5.99, Soap: $6.99, Body Butter: $15.99, Sugar Scrub: $16.99.
I know no one wants to pay more for things, but I assure you that I really had no other option. I hope you can be understanding! Thank you so much for your overwhelming support!
