Exciting News!
Zosimos Botanicals is thrilled to announce that we've been approved for inclusion in the Leaping Bunny Program!

This program, designed by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics, helps producers eliminate animal testing from their supply chain and final products.

Of course, we've never conducted testing or asked anyone else to.  Thankfully, we were able to get our raw material suppliers to sign compliance forms stating that they will not conduct animal testing after a designated fixed cut-off date that we chose.  Many suppliers already did not test on animals, so they happily obliged.  Others who refused have been removed from our supply chain.
 
We want our customers to be sure they're making the right choice when they choose Zosimos Botanicals' cosmetics.  We hope you're proud of our decision, because we sure are!

Product Line Updates 

It's always a tough choice to eliminate products from our line.  When we looked at sales trends over the past year, we made the hard decision to discontinue the following:

  • Brazilian Rainforest & Bug Away Spray in Minimist sizes
  • Color Correctors in shades Mint, Petal, and Violet
  • Lip Balm Minipots
  • Lotion Stick 
  • Manuka Moisture Mask
  • Shimmer Dust
  • Solid Perfume in scents Sweet Clarity & Oriental Garden

You may also notice prices have increased for some products.  These increases were necessary to keep pace with the cost of our high quality raw ingredients and rising supply shipping costs.

Customer    Feedback  

  

Congratulations to  Joan R. of Gig Harbor, WA - winner of this month's Customer Feedback

Token of Appreciation.

 

 She won $10 by telling us this:

 

"Both your products and service are excellent.

Also, I wanted to let you know that I found an additinal reason to buy the Bud & Blossoms Setting Mist.

I use it as a very effective deodorant. Just one spritz under each arm does the job.

 

Thank You."
