A Little About Chic & Unique

Thanks for visiting us! Chic & Unique is a home based business.  I create beautifully hand crafted, natural skin care products scented without the use of any fragrance or perfume. I make chemical free beauty products because they are healthier for you and safer for the environment.


Just before my daughter was born, I started exploring healthy alternatives to basically everything!
Like every Mom, I wanted the best for my baby. So, I decided to use cloth diapers because they 
were less likely to cause allergies, environmentally friendly and more economical than disposable diapers. This was just the start to my healthier lifestyle change.


I was both curious and inspired by a close friend who believed in an organic lifestyle. She took organic to a whole new level. Every grocery food item was organic. Not only did she have the common organic fruits, veggies, breads, milk and meat, but I was surprised that she even had organic spices and oils! Intrigued, I decided to conduct a little research of my own. I learned a lot about what makes organic foods and products, organic (I’m not going to give a lesson on this. You can research and make your own conclusion). I gained a better understanding of what is good and what is harmful to the environment as well as our bodies. That prompted me to make some changes in my home.

When my daughter was about 1 year old, she developed a rash and was having some difficulty breathing at night. She was prescribed a puffer and some cream. I switched to a brand name laundry detergent without dye or scent, to see if that would help. Without much change, I wasn’t entirely convinced that dye free and scent free was the answer. I wanted to know if there was a natural alternative that would help. After a little more research, I learned how to make my own laundry soap, so that I knew exactly what the ingredients were. No chemicals! And…It worked! I even bought wool dryer balls, so that I didn’t have to use fabric softener anymore.

Later, I got to thinking, what about soap for our body? I didn’t stop there. I thought I would try my hand at body butters, dish soap and floor cleaner. Since then, I’ve decided to add bath bombs, lip balm, and soy candles to my list. This is one of my favourite things to do!
