for being our wonderful, supportive customers.
It is a very special month for me. Not only is it Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it is also the 10-year anniversary of Hummingbird Farms. In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness AND our 10th Anniversary, we want to celebrate by thanking you for working Hand in Hand with me.
As you may know, I created my aloe-based body care as a direct result of my own personal need for a lotion that would calm my skin after my breast cancer treatments left my skin severely irritated. It took me a while but Lavender Body Lotion No.145 (Yes, you guessed it, it took 145 formulations before I got it just right!) gave my skin the relief that I so desperately needed.
The Lavender Hand Soap No. 307 was developed a year later, in March 2007 (Yes, you guessed right again - March '07, hence 307.) because of my concern of overuse of antibacterial soaps. What was supposed to be good for you was wreaking havoc, for both adults and children, and leaving hands dry and chapped. I began getting many requests to create a hand cleanser, but it was a mother's desperate plea to save her daughter's ravaged, cracked hands from too much hand washing at school that drove my motivation to find the balanced formula of Lavender Hand Soap No. 307.
So you see, the first product I developed was due to my own unmet need, and each one thereafter has been due to your needs.
Although you may not realize it, we have been working together all along.
I hope we will be working Hand in Hand for many years to come!
