The time has nearly come where we replace our current body wash with our new and improved hair and body wash. That means we've got to get rid of all the body wash of the old formula, and quick! If...
As you know, we're always trying to improve our products to be more aligned with what you, our rugged Outlaw gang, needs more of. Mostly, we know the more jobs one tool can do, the better, right? It's with great...
Last year, I published a very popular and thorough post about how to make body wash in one million easy steps. Today, I am amused to report that I need to add ONE MORE STEP to that extended saga: heat-sealed...
Fire in the Hole explosively awesome campfire soap: Inspired by friends, whiskey, explosions, and good times
The first attempt at making Fire in the Hole soap came on a weekend in May. I know this very specifically, because I wasn't camping that weekend, and it was our annual May Trip.
We had planned on going camping with friends -- one of those crazy weekends of drinking and shooting and lighting things on fire -- but it was our first year of Outlaw Soaps, and small business ownership being what it is, we couldn't see to drag ourselves away for the day-long drive to meet our friends in an obscure corner of the Mojave.
Blazing Saddles Soap is a handmade soap unlike any other. It smells like the essence of the Wild West, at its core. The people who like it are adventurous, excited about life, and real participants.
It smells like leather, gunpowder, sandalwood, and sagebrush, which is pretty much what we imagine any great Western movie smells like.
The crowdfunding campaigns were so successful that The Gambler Body Wash was 174% funded and Blazing Saddles Body Wash (the sexiest body wash ever) was 182% funded.
That's fantastic news, and we're really excited, because new product development is an absolute bear. And not a teddy bear, either. It's more like we're Jedediah Smith vs a bear on the trail.
I mean, we're winning, but it's not without a fight.
"WE WANT LIQUID SOAP!" the multitudes cry out!
Since we have a democratic product development process (as much as we can, given that we're also running a business), we hear many requests for certain products. But none has been so persistent and consistent as for shower gel / body wash / liquid soap.
So we've decided to try an experiment here at Outlaw Soaps: Crowdfunding product development.
If you want to cut to the chase and pre-purchase a bottle of body wash, make your selection:
One of the fun parts of our jobs is inventing.
But due to the nature of our business (outlined at the bottom of this post), we can't do a whole lot of it.
Spring, though, is time for us to order a whole messa new supplies and start inventing with great fervor, since whatever we invent in the Spring, we're stuck with for the rest of the year. And if we don't invent something in the Spring, we don't get to start inventing it at any other time, since it's too close to Christmas (yes, really).
Here are some exciting products that we're working on this Spring! Look for these in April and May!
