img_20161202_131653_996000

Orders received by this date will be mailed December 14 (USA), December 15 (Canada/International), or may be picked up at the lab on December 17 between 12 – 4 pm during a lil ‘open house with vegan treats prepared by Organic Planet Worker Co-Op 😊

Orders placed December 10 – January 2 will be handmade as quickly as possible upon my return 😊 Thank you!! ❄♥

Changes — a post for clients in Winnipeg

Hello Winnipeg! This post is for you!

img_20160925_003236_510000

In the past 24 hours, some things have changed. Some is bad news, and I’m sorry about that, but it has led to what I hope will be good news 😊

I am grateful for your online orders — it helps me make Just the Goods my full time occupation! However, in order to continue offering public wholesale prices, I need to allocate my energy as carefully as possible because overextending myself is not sustainable. As it turns out, the bicycle courier with whom I’ve been working since Natural Cycle Courier closed feels the same way.

😿 The bad news: I have had to cancel my participation at WEST Fall Market on November 5 *and* Ghost Rider Messenger informed me a few hours ago that it is no longer able to work with Just the Goods at current rates.

😺 The goods news: I will be offering free monthly pick ups at the lab on a trial basis until the end of the year 🙂

🌼Orders placed by Saturday, October 15 can be picked up at the lab on Saturday, October 22 from 12:00 – 4:00 pm

🌼 Orders placed October 16 – November 19 can be picked up at the lab on Saturday, November 26 from 12:00 – 4:00 pm

🌼Orders placed November 20 – December 10 can be picked up at the lab on Saturday, December 17.

🌟 Bonus: December 17 will be an open house event set up like a mini market with cider and vegan treats available for those in attendance 😊 More news about that is forthcoming!

🌟 + I will be attending Vegan Handmade Market on December 3 as a shopper, and I can absolutely bring orders with me for those who will also be there and want to meet up between 10:00 – 11:00 am. I’ll post news about that in November 😊

As Just the Goods, I’m committed to handmaking the healthiest possible skin, body, and hair care products, while also pricing them as affordably as possible. For details about I price, please visit: http://bit.do/JTGpricing. I can make quality products and I can make them affordable, but — at such intentionally low prices — I can not make them faster, nor can I maintain retail space / pay someone a living wage to answer the door for pick ups. And, since I’m reminded again and again why my original goal of offering affordable pricing for healtheir self care products is essential, my decisions always seek to align. With all that said, don’t forget: if you ever need Just the Goods products faster, you can always go to Generation Green at the Forks, which is open 7 days a week and carries the largest selection of JTG body basis apart from my website 😊 They’re wonderful and you’ll surely find other wonderful things you didn’t know you needed 😉

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding — I’m excited about continuing to handmake JTG for you! 💕

Just The Goods Event Schedule

img_20160917_164503

With my first of three events coming up next weekend, it occurred to me that an “at a glance” schedule might be a good thing to share 😉 So, here it is!

✔ September 24: Etsy Made in Canada, 181 Higgins
✔ October 13 – 16: Etsy Boutique at Scattered Seeds, Red River Ex
✔ November 5: Winnipeg Etsy Street Team Fall Market, 290 Dubuc

To pre-order for pick up on September 24, please use coupon code “madeincanada2016” at http://www.justthegoods.net by September 18 😊

To pre-order for pick up on November 5 please use coupon code “fall2016” at http://www.justthegoods.net by October 30 😊

If there is enough demand, I might be able to offer a day of local ups at the lab on a Saturday in December … If this appeals to you, please let me know!

See you at Etsy Made in Canada Manitoba Edition on Saturday, September 24!

I’m delighted to announce that Just The Goods will be participating in this year’s Etsy Made in Canada – Manitoba Edition 2016 on Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at Neeginan Centre Inc. (181 Higgins Avenue, Winnipeg). Whoo!

MIC DEADLINE IMAGE
I’m planning to be at only two sales this year — and this is one of them — so it’ll be a great opportunity for us to meet in person!

I’ll attempt to bring as much as I can of my 150+ product catalogue, but since that’s awfully difficult to do, I readily welcome you to pre-order at http://www.justthegoods.net by September 18 using the coupon code

>> MadeinCanada2016 <<

Doing so will waive your shipping/local courier fee, and indicate to me that I should bring your order with me so you can pick it up at any time you wish during the official hours of the event. Super easy, and you’ll always get exactly what you want without having to worry about arriving in time. A great option, especially if you’re like me and prefer a late, leisurely breakfast 😉 *lol*

I’m looking forward to seeing you at this event! If it’s anything like last year’s inaugural event, this is going to be fantastic!!

ps. The graphic reads 11 – 4, but it’s definitely 10 – 4 🙂

Just the Goods Newsletter – Summer/Fall 2016

Exciting changes to US shipping, upcoming end-of-summer closure notice,
new limited edition product, and more!

Hello everyone,

Happy Summer! I hope you’re finding time to play in the sun, rest under trees, and watch plants and animals grow =-)

Summer/Fall 2016… Meep! No one wants to think about autumn quite yet, and it surely seems too soon for another newsletter, but I have *so* much to share and ultimately decided sending one extra communiqué this year will be worthwhile, especially for clients based in the US. Please read on for details…

Deepest thanks and best wishes always!
Milena

Shipping news for clients in the US

I am thrilled to announce that Just the Goods now ships to the US – from the US – via USPS, which means lower shipping rates for all US clients including access to flat rate shipping boxes (great for orders over 1 kg / 35 oz), and tracking + insurance automatically added to all parcels without additional cost or effort.

The first three weeks operating under this new procedure have been successful and, going forward, parcels will be driven from Winnipeg to Pembina (ND) every Thursday, excluding weeks when Just the Goods is closed, of course. Tracking numbers will be forwarded directly via USPS and shipping will now take an average of 1 – 4 days after mailing, instead of 10. Rush shipping from Canada (via Canada Post or UPS) is still available. Please enquire before making very time sensitive purchases.

This change has been a long time in the making – thank you for your patience while I assessed viability and found someone fully committed to driving three hours each week and clear customs at the border on my behalf 😉

Shipping news for local, national and other international clients

Those within Winnipeg who receive parcels via local courier will also experience a shipping-related change. Natural Cycle Courier closed operations after serving Winnipeg for 17 years, so I’ve worked out special rates with Ghost Rider Messenger, who is similarly able to deliver to all accessible locations within the Perimeter; however, delivery will now take place within 1 business day (most often on the same Thursday the parcel is picked up). The cost of local courier is now now $6.75 for any parcel under 1 kg to any address within the Perimeter with an accessible mailbox, safe drop location, or where someone is available during regular business hours to receive the parcel in person. Thank you!

Finally, shipping news for all other clients: Those in Canada may know that Canada Post has agreed to a 30 day extension on current labour negotiations, which means employees who work hard to maintain a well functioning, public network over such an expansive landmass will not fear being locked out of their jobs, nor will they need to take strike action at this time. As such, I am continuing to ship as usual to locations across Canada and around the world, with pleasure! Still, I have retained shipping by UPS as an available option on the website, for those who prefer it. Please be confident that I will not made arbitrary switches between carriers: if you choose Canada Post, I will ship with that method; likewise if you choose UPS. Thanks!

Upcoming Temporary Closure

My recent travels were fantastic – I came back invigorated and inspired, and I was blown away by the sheer volume of orders that arrived during my absence – thank you! In contrast, things quiet down a little in the summer, which I hope means that everyone is spending time outdoors having fun! And, knowing that things once again become wonderfully busy in September (and continue straight through until the end of May), I’ve learned that it’s a good idea to schedule rest and relaxation at the end of each summer.

As such, Just the Goods will be closed August 26 – September 3. Orders placed by Friday, August 19 will be mailed by August 25. Orders placed August 20 – September 3 will be handmade and shipped as quickly as possible thereafter. Orders involving in-stock items will be shipped on September 8 and all other orders will be shipped on September 15. I have decided to limit my access to email from August 27 to September 3 and will therefore reply to all messages when I return. Thanks!

New Product

It has been a while since I released a new product, and this one is unique in that I can only offer it as a very small batch, limited edition item.

Celebrating the height of summer, this facial mask features two of my favourite things: vibrant matcha and aromatic, home grown lavender!

Kaolin is a mild yet effective clay suitable for all skin types selected for its ability to absorb accumulated oil and dirt from pores without over-drying. Organic AOI matcha is prized as a high quality beverage — applied to skin, it promotes cellular regeneration and decreases sebum production making it beneficial to all skin types, particularly when weathehttps://justthegoods.net/products/limited-edition-vegan-matcha-lavender-jasmine-facial-mask-for-most-skin-typesr is hot and humid. Lavender also stimulates cellular regeneration while offering mild antibacterial support that leaves skin feeling fresh and clean. Jasmine is softening, mildly exfoliating, and promotes radiance, which is useful for all skin types, but especially great any time skin feels dull or dry and needs a boost.

This product is suitable for most skin types. It contains no essential oils, but does include a large quantity of recently dried and freshly ground lavender, so it is fragrant and thus potentially not suitable for those allergic to botanical ingredients.

There are only 6 tins available, and when they’re gone, they’re gone… until maybe next summer 😉

Find it here: https://justthegoods.net/products/limited-edition-vegan-matcha-lavender-jasmine-facial-mask-for-most-skin-types.

Product Packing Changes

When developing Just the Goods products, I carefully consider how packaging will promote both safety and affordability. Safety is reflected in my choice of heavy glass and/or BPA-free plastics; affordability comes into play by maintaining uniform bottle sizes and caps, thus limiting the range of things I need to order/ship so I can take advantage of volume-based discounts.

I recently learned the perfume bottles I’ve been using for the past few years have started to leak during shipping, especially in winter when the perfume freezes and expands while the packaging contracts and ultimately prevents effective sealing. I’ve chosen another type of perfume bottle – a more traditional vial without a roller-ball and I feel confident it will perform much better. I am in the process of switching over to those soon – please stay tuned!

I’ve also decided that it’s time to offer resealable pouches for body scrubs, which means less weight and a smaller carbon footprint for shipping, which also means lower shipping costs. The same packaging will now be used for bath salts, bath melts, and facial scrubs. I hope this decision will increase access to the body scrubs in particular, many of which have recently become EWG VERIFIED.

Upcoming Local Event

Those in Winnipeg may be interested to know that Just the Goods has been accepted to participate in Etsy Made in Canada 2016 on Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at the same location, Neeginan Centre (181 Higgins Ave). As always, I welcome pre-orders from http://www.justthegoods.net for pick up at this event – please use the coupon code MadeinCanada2016 by September 18, and I’ll meet you there with everything you choose!

Other events for the fall/winter season will be announced as they are confirmed – follow me on social media for the news as soon as it becomes available (*Hint: One of them includes Scattered Seeds!*)

Cooking + Home Spa Stress Management Retreat

The stress relieving cooking + home spa retreat co-hosted with integrative nutrition health coach Katie Schmidt of Whole Nourishment (http://www.wholenourishment.net) in St Gallen, Switzerland at the end of May was a fantastic success! We are thrilled so many people were able to join us for a packed day of discussion, making, and eating on a holiday long weekend, and we deeply appreciate all the wonderful feedback we received. At this time I would once again like to thank Mara from Urban Earth Teas (http://www.urbanearth.ca) and Angela of Ground Soap (http://www.groundsoap.com) for their kind contributions to the participant gift bags, which were greatly enjoyed!

Katie and are I definitely interested in co-hosting another event in the future that once again combines easy to prepare foods that help our bodies thrive with home spa self-care practices that promote comfort and rest, and we’re already mulling over possible dates and/or locations. Our principal criteria involves us being on the same continent at the same time, which will be North America next July (2017).

We established this time of year is not good for an event in Winnipeg due to all of the festivals taking place… but we’re wondering, what about other cities? Katie and I are both willing to travel within Canada and/or the US … Are you interested in helping us find the perfect event space + promote the event within the area? If so, please get in touch – we’d love to chat!

Yes, it’s true, the lab *was* closed for production at the end of December, but since that time was largely consumed with materials inventory and other paperwork, I am excited about taking a real no-work vacation later this month 😊 I will be traveling January 22 – Feb 8, so that makes the last shipping day before I leave January 19. In order to complete all requests before then, the last day to place orders will be 🌺 January 16 🌺 Of course, any orders placed after that will be safely stored and taken care of as soon as I return 👍 Thanks so much!! 💕

Stress management retreat in Barcelona, upcoming temporary closure, new product, shipping news, and more!
Hello everyone,

Happy New Year! I hope you had a relaxing holiday season, and that 2016 is already revealing fantastic moments, with many more ahead!

As for me, I’m still glowing from the past few months because I’m so grateful to you for motivating me with kind messages and Instagram pics, and for keeping me busy with enthusiastic orders. Wow… THANK YOU! I took a few days off during the holiday to rest and be social, and I leisurely caught up on year-end matters such as paperwork, materials inventory, and planning, as well. I’d like to say another thank you to those of you who submitted orders during this temporary closure – I’ve already started working on them, and I look forward to mailing the first batch of parcels for the year on Tuesday, January 12, which resumes a once-weekly shipping schedule. And, as if that all wasn’t enough to be excited about, I can tell you that I’m feeling even more bubbly about the things still in store… read on to find out what I mean 😉

With all best to you,
Milena

Upcoming Temporary Closure

Just the Goods will be closed January 20 – February 8, 2015 for a winter vacation. Orders placed by Saturday, January 16 will be handmade and shipped by January 19. Orders placed January 17 – February 8 will be handmade beginning February 9 and shipped as quickly as possible thereafter. I don’t anticipate that I’ll have regular internet access during this absence, but I will try my best to respond to urgent messages. Thank you!
 

New Product

Toothpaste was among the first formulas I created for Just the Goods. More accurately, it was the second thing I ever made, shortly after shaving cream. It has become incredibly popular over the past 6.5 years, but what you might not know is that since I always strive to create new possibilities, I’ve long been considering alternatives to support a wider range of interests and preferences. One of the things I was looking at quite closely was a clay-based tooth powder, but I was unable to lock down a consistent source for the clay I had in mind. However, something else peaked my interest in the meantime: tooth oil!


Combining the popular Ayurvedic principle of oil pulling with the helpful practice of conventional tooth brushing to lift and remove plaque, this product (like Just the Goods’ alcohol-free vegan mouthwash) includes further benefit in the form of three essential oils: peppermint, which controls bacteria while also providing a pleasant taste and delivering fresh breath; clove, which is commonly used in dental care around the world to disinfect the mouth, control harmful bacteria, and relieve pain; and myrrh, which encourages healthy tissue in that it can help to heal gums and some mouth ulcers. Coconut oil is the perfect base for this tooth oil, an ingredient which itself contains lauric acid known to help reduce the presence of some bacteria, viruses, and/or fungi.

Two to four drops is all you need for your toothbrush to glide with far less abrasivity than toothpaste that contains baking soda, calcium carbonate, clay, silica and/or mica. Those seeking to avoid vegetable glycerine for any reason can also enjoy this item made without. I hope it goes without saying, this item is free from artificial preservatives, artificial flavours, sweeteners and/or colourants.

Just the Goods’ new tooth oil is available in two formats: a refillable 1 oz / 30 ml glass bottle with a dropper, and a 1 oz / 30 ml HDPE refill. Find them here: http://justthegoods.net/products/vegan-tooth-oil.

 

Good Shipping News for a Change… Whooo!

After 4.5 months without a properly functioning shipping calculator, I’m happy to confirm that everything is working again with deepest thanks to an amazing e-commerce technician at Canada Post who helped me pick through Shopify’s shipping app weirdness. Without his assistance, I’m pretty sure I’d still be in a pickle, which would in turn be furthering inconvenience for all of you. So, whew… what a relief!

And, I have some great news for local clients in Winnipeg, too! The base rate of $4.00 for delivery by Natural Cycle Courier now covers parcels up to 2 kg, which means you can get more for less than before! Yippee!! I’ve also increased the allowable maximum for this shipping method, which means you can use it for parcels up to 4 kg! W00t!

Just the Goods Partners with Waterfront Massage Therapy

Also in fantastic local news, I’m so happy to share that Just the Goods has partnered with Waterfront Massage Therapy to become their central provider for massage oil, lotion, body butter, and other products used for therapeutic massage that facilitates the body’s optimal healing and capacity for renewal. Visit their beautiful clinic located at 270 Waterfront Drive, Winnipeg MB, to care for your aching muscles and to reduce stress affecting both the body and mind.


 

Shout Outs and Reviews… Thank you!!

 
In case you missed it…

I am honoured to be affiliated with US-based environmental NGO, Women’s Voices for the Earth, in the context of their No Secrets Business Partners program. Upon joining, they kindly invited me to write a piece for their blog, which was published last fall. The piece summarizes my personal journey from being wrapped up in the promises of the beauty industry to learning to see right through them, and from being frustrated with the fact that I couldn’t afford healthier skin care options, to leaving my career in the arts and make those skin care options. As mentioned when I shared this link in my last newsletter, if you’ve ever been curious to know more about what I do and why, this piece tells all! I hope you find it interesting and, of course, if you have any questions or comments, please do feel welcome to post them at the blog, or write to me in person – it would be my pleasure to chat!

Year end production schedule

Hi everyone! The past few months have zoomed by, I can hardly believe 2015 is already drawing to a close! As the end of the year approaches, it is time for me to mention #justthegoods year-end order #deadline 😊. My last day in the lab will be December 22, so please be sure to place your orders by ❄December 16❄ to ensure your selections can be handmade, packed, and shipped with the last batch of the season. Orders placed between December 17 – January 2 will be handmade beginning January 3 and shipped as quickly as possible thereafter. I will be in town taking a few days off (and tackling year end paperwork and materials inventory), so I will be online checking messages from time to time, but my response time will be slowed. ✨✨✨ Please note, I will only be back in the lab for approx 2 weeks because I have a no-work vacation scheduled for late January/early February, but I'll post order/shipping dates for that in the new year 🌴😊 Thank you!! 😘 #vegan #crueltyfree #BeCrueltyFree #safecosmetics #nontoxic #naturalskincare #veganskincare #veganshare #homespa #winter #holidays
