We're big fans of the family-owned artisanal skin care company, Amalthea Ridge (see our previous blog, "Learn About Raising Kids and Homesteading From Local Mom and Founder of Amalthea Ridge"). Using goat milk from her own herd of goats, biochemist and founder, Sarah Wehri, Ph.D, creates dreamy lotions, face creams, soaps, and more. After being frustrated by the lack of products to relieve her daughter's skin irritation, back in 2011 Sarah began researching natural ingredients and decided to create something herself. Soon family and friends started making product requests, so selling them on a small scale seemed like the next logical next step. Sarah uses her knowledge of protein and lipid biochemistry to formulate unique, skin-supporting products. “From the first formulations, Amalthea Ridge has focused on high-quality, natural ingredients and our homestead fresh goat milk as the foundation of our products. We make a point of sourcing organic and fair trade ingredients with a preference for local ingredients whenever available. ”
Together with her husband, Keyvan Moussavi, the family-run business is now ready for the next step. “We continue to experience increased demand for our unique skin care products from direct consumers and retail stores requesting to resell them. Our current equipment is unable to keep up with demand.” explains Sarah. “A successful Kickstarter campaign would mean the purchase of equipment to meet demand as well as materials to begin creation of the next generation of Amalthea Ridge products.”
Kickstarter project backers can select a variety of rewards composed of Amalthea Ridge products. Amalthea Ridge products made special holiday gifts and gift wrap is included upon request. Sarah and Keyvan are working hard to ensure rewards ship in time for holiday gift giving!
