Organic Personal Care Products for a Natural Lifestyle
After Kris Demattia and Kate Rice, creators of Kris and Kate Organics, met online in a Facebook group, they decided to meet in person. The result was instant friendship. Not only did the women have motherhood and children aged 4 and 5 in common, in their lively discussions they discovered that they both lived a natural lifestyle. “It was inevitable that the conversation eventually led to the fact that we couldn’t find organic personal care products that lived up to our standards for ourselves and our daughters,” says Demattia, who moved from New York to Naples in 2021.
“Enthusiastic about making our own organic products, we both embraced the idea of making organic soap using our own formulated recipe. We did our research and determined what ingredients we wanted in our soap,” says Rice, a native Floridian. Excited about how their joint soap project turned out, Demattia and Rice knew that they wanted to fill the gap in organic soaps for others that might be looking for a healthier alternative with only organic essential oils such as lemongrass, pine and cypress oils, eucalyptus and mint, and rosemary, as well as other essential oils. They blend them in a variety of recipes with organic virgin coconut oil, organic castor oil, organic raw shea butter and distilled water.
Kris and Kate Organics has an expanded menu of products that includes scrubs, serums, lip balms, a yoga mat cleaner and whipped body butter. “We use our products on ourselves and our daughters, who have also become best friends,” say Demattia and Rice.
