Benefits of Handcrafted
Today, more people are discovering the value of buying handcrafted products from small, independent artisans. Thousands of HSCG members around the world across the US, Canada and around the world are crafting high-quality soap, cosmetic and candles candle products that benefit the not only the individual, but their community and planet.
Quality, Health & Safety: Handmade products use natural, food-grade ingredients. These are typically gentler – especially for those with allergies or skin sensitivity. Because they are handcrafted in small batches, the maker is directly involved in the quality and safety of each item.
Environmental Impact: Handcrafted products are more sustainable from start to finish. Makers typically source raw materials that are more natural and are often organic and local. Small batch, handmade production generates a smaller carbon footprint, while final packaging reduces plastic and paper waste.
Economic Power: While online sales offer access to makers around the world, most handcrafters are small businesses. Your purchase puts money directly back into a community, supporting jobs and local economic development.
