[BLACK BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT] Sandy's Signature Creations 4 U! |


This week's Blacktopia Black Business Spotlight is on Sandy's Signature Creations 4 U.

          As the world continues to make progress, people are becoming more knowledgeable when it comes to the importance of self-care, personal hygiene, beauty and holistic health.  In the past, commercial and mainstream products dominated the self-care industry, but now that individuals are becoming acutely aware of the harmful and not so healthy ingredients found in the leading brands, the newer generations are expeditiously shying away from those products and seeking some of the smaller companies that provide self-care products with cleaner, more healthier, and organic contents.  Leading the field in the next generation of healthier, more efficient self-care products is SS Creations 4 U (Sandy's Signature Creations by Sandy Adams).  
          Sandy Adams has been working for many many years as a hairstylist starting out in a corporate salon learning the ins and outs of the business before bouncing around to various salons renting booths until eventually starting her own operation.  Throughout her tenure as a stylist and leading professional in the beauty / self-care industry, Sandy would often listen to the problems and concerns of her clients as well as others about their skin, health conditions and other complications.  These ongoing issues stated by her customers lead to Sandy birthing the solution to these problems by creating her own natural, chemical free products back in 2017 and has been going strong ever since.  
          Two of Sandy's first creations were her original Peppermint Foot Soak and Tea Tree Charcoal Soap.  The natural elements Sandy uses in her signature creations and products contain healing properties that not only help on a surface level, but work from the inside out.  Sandy's Signature Creations work wonders for people with skin conditions, that the "regular" lotions just can't help.  Sandy's products work naturally from the outside and inside to help you mentally, physically and emotionally.  Sandy's Signature Creations offers a vast array of all natural, chemical free, health-conscious products from soaps, oils, body butters, foot soaks, cleansers and more.  Sandy's top selling products are her Turmeric Peppermint Soap, Charcoal Tea Tree Soap, Lavender and Tea Tree Foot Soak, Revitalize Scalp and Hair Oil and Renu Body and Facial Cleanse.
