Going back to slow and small

The past one and half years since my move from Penang has been challenging. I went back to part-time work a month after I moved in and since then, I have not looked back. Some time in September 2016, I switched to full time. It has been hard trying to juggle a business and the stresses of a demanding job so I have been forced to choose between the two.

As such, come 13 February, I’ll be cutting back considerably on the amount of time I spend on the shop. This means smaller batches of soaps on a sporadic basis and hardly any promotions except for selected events. Even then I have yet to decide on which are the ones I’d want to focus on – Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas are a given for 2017.

There will be instances where I have to reject people because I have no stock.

My apologies. This decision doesn’t come easy.

I still have some fair amount of stock left (butters, oils, essential oils, herbs, powders, clays, etc) and am struggling to find a way to keep them “alive” while slowly reducing my stock. But most of all, this is something that I loved to do but…it has to make way for something that will help contribute significantly to the wellbeing of my family.

This isn’t quite a goodbye – I’ll still be around.

An upside to this would be that I will be able to go back to the early days when I first began soaping. That means more experimentation, going back to basics, and well, less pressure on meeting my sales & profit margins. Hopefully I’ll be able to share those experiments & experiences with you.

I want to thank those of you who have been and are still very supportive of my little business. It has been a wonderful six years and I look forward to more good things in the future.

A big announcement!

I had intended to keep this under the wraps until things were a little more final but that didn’t quite work out as planned!

Anyway…

I will be taking a break (somewhat reluctantly, to be honest) from soaping beginning from either mid-June to July 1st to facilitate a (possible) cross-country move. My husband was posted to Penang on a contract two years ago and come this July, that contract will be expiring so we’re looking to either stay on in Malaysia or move to other pastures. At this time, we are not quite certain of the location (hence why my decision to keep this under wraps at first) – I am hoping for somewhere close to home such as Singapore.

So beginning from May 1st, I am unable to take on any more custom orders (those who have contacted me prior to May 1st are in the “safe zone”). There will still be soaps and other skincare products for sale up till circa end of May to middle of June. I am planning on running a few promotions so if you have any orders, plan it for after 10 May when I kickstart the promos! All orders will definitely be shipped before I move (am planning to have 15 June as the deadline) so don’t worry about that bit!

In the meantime, I am clearing up my stock of carrier oils, butters and essential oils so once some of my regular items are finished, I won’t be making any until after we have settled into our new place. This will be reflected in the “Stock Update” page so do check it out if you can. A number of the old favourites will make its way back – Kopi O is already on the curing rack and Tofu is on the “to-do” list once I get back from my Labour Day break (May 1-10). I will also be launching a new liquid soap for sensitive skin and babies (you can have the option of unscented or scented) then.

To get a full list of what is available or what’s in the pipeline, you can also drop me a note either via email, WA or PM on Facebook.

In the meantime, my heartfelt thanks for your support and kindness since I started Mabel ::: Savonniere in 2011. It has been a good four years and I hope to get back to speed once things are clearer and definite!

Special Notes:
Packed full of vitamins like vitamins A, E, D and potassium, avocado oil helps to protect and nourish hair. Its fatty acid content is higher than olive oil, making it a wonderful oil to use in hair care products. It also helps to stimulate new growth and unclog blocked follicles.

Made of mostly plants native to India, this blend of herbs has its roots in Ayurvedic medicine. These herbs are known for its use in hair treatments, especially with hair loss and promotion of hair growth. Bhringaraj is known as “master of hair” and commonly used to fight against greying hair and baldness, while Shikakai is rich in saponins and help to clean and smooth hair as well as promote hair growth. Amla is rich in Vitamin C and is considered one of the most powerful regenerating herbs in Indian traditional medicine.

Originating from India, chaulmoogra oil has long been used in traditional medicine and in haircare, the oil helps to promote hair growth while soothing the scalp. It is rich in hydnocarpic acid (45.76%), chaulmoogric acid (33.26%), gorlique acid (10.95%), making it suitable for those seeking to find relief from dandruff or those who are dealing with hair loss or irritated scalp problems.
