What We Do
We are a multi-generational family of women who create handcrafted artisan beauty products for a variety of skin types. Our mostly vegan products, which range from soaps to lotions to lip scrubs, contain high quality oils, butters, colorants, fragrance oils and essential oils. No harsh chemicals, parabens, phthalates, or animal fats are added. Our recipe creation process is tailored to keep our batches small and products that promote healthier skin. We offer subscription boxes, gift sets and are in the midst of developing facial soaps and scrubs.
How We Started
G&M Creations’ catalyst was a summer project between my daughter, Gwen, and mom, Margi, in 2015. Gwen, then a 10-year-old, needed to fill her “boring” summer days, so she and my mom began researching essential oils and making soap. Little did they know that their simple summer project would blossom into a lasting business. They began experimenting with colors and molds using melt-and-pour bases and attended the Lone Star Soap conference to learn how to make cold-processed soap from scratch. Gwen transformed into a kid on a mission, asking questions and taking notes. They chose lavender and lemongrass as their signature soaps, but have since added a variety of other scents, as well as natural lip balms, bath bombs, body butters, salves, and lotions.
In October 2017, my mom was diagnosed with a rare metastatic breast cancer. I stepped into the business after that to help keep it going. I was ready for a new challenge after spending more than ten years in the investment management industry. We are now a multi-generational family of women producing handcrafted artisan beauty products. In March 2018, we moved into Lone Star Mercantile opening our vendor space in Allen, Texas. In September 2018, we started offering subscription boxes with a choice of soaps or bath bombs. Next, we are focusing on expanding our website offerings.
