Blissoma is a holistic, raw, organic and vegan skincare line focused on healing and gorgeous, healthy results for every skin type. www.blissoma.com
What makes Blissoma special? Blissoma formulations faithfully offer the best medicinal compounds from plants that are research-proven to have healing superpowers for the human body. Ingredients are fresh, stored and combined at optimal temperatures, and blended with skill to offer a final product that is uniquely effective, pleasant to use, and a direct experience with plants as nature created them. Generally the ingredients are just 1 step away from the original plant material from which they came. Many are cold-processed and raw so that no damage is done to heat-sensitive vitamins and other valuable compounds. An initial feel of the products demonstrates the difference as the texture, color, and smell all distinctly tell the story of the nutritive ingredients contained therein. By not changing the botanicals Blissoma offers a big change for your skin. Making Problem Skin Pretty Again When founder Julie Longyear set out to design skincare recipes she approached the task from the mindset of a true beginner. No rules or conventions from mass market skincare were used. Every emulsion system, preservative, and herbal ingredient was tested by hand to ensure complete understanding of what each offered to a final formulation. Instead of using tea tree oil for acne like so many natural product lines use Longyear created a recipe based on rose oil, providing an answer for difficult acne combined with mature skin types. Herbs are potent, but extracts commonly available to the cosmetics industry are often watered-down and generate no results. Longyear also devised her own extraction processes and make sure demanding skin types were getting the supplemental herbal nutrition they need to regenerate. Like the rest of our bodies our skin is often deficient in certain nutrients, each of us a little different from another. By providing these vitamins, essential fatty acids, and other nutrients our skin craves it is like fitting a piece in a puzzle. The skin can maintain itself properly again with targeted nutrition.

In just a month we'll be debuting our new deodorant collection and three new facial care products. The facial care products are named Timeless, Flawless, and Glow. Boxes and labels for the new facial care are in house and we're getting materials in for the first batches in as well. Other than that we're going to leave you wondering. :) Stay tuned!!!
Most of the conversations in St. Louis are pretty serious today, and rightly so. But for a change of pace we have some nice news! Our beloved production manager Frank has just purchased his very first car after years of only taking public transit and commuting with family. Thank you for each and every purchase that has allowed us to help him get to this major milestone!!! We couldn't have done it without you.
We like conversations about caring for our bodies. It's what we do all day. :) This issue came up on a parenting group last night and I'm curious what our community would say. What are your thoughts on when young women should start shaving body hair (if at all) and the pressures surrounding this issue? What has been your experience with this cultural norm as you grew up and into your life today? What do you think?
We are finally on Instagram! Follow us at @Blissoma_Skincare...we will be posting a link on our website for it soon too. Check out our day to day life in the studio and as we gain more followers more fun will be had like contests and giveaways!
This year there's a shortage of a few organic fruit seed oils. Two of our key suppliers have been low or out of organic pomegranate seed oil and organic red raspberry seed oil. The word we have is that there is just little seed available for oil pressing due to rising popularity of the organic fruits. Because we LOVE you guys and we LOVE organics we have made some special purchasing arrangements to try and ensure our supply of organic oils. We worked with one supplier to arrange a pressing of organic pomegranate oil that should hopefully set us up for some time to come. It was 1/3 again more expensive than usual even with the bulk purchase and took 2 months to get from inquiry to payment for the order, but we did it. Due to the shortage and very unclear information about the market beyond the next 9 months or so we chose to mark one of our new oil serums that will be coming out soon without the * that designates Certified Organic material as our packaging will last us several years and we don't know how the market will change. Technically according to organic standards we could have marked it organic and still purchased conventional if organic was not available, but we felt better about marking it as non and then getting organic anyway if we could. Underpromise and overdeliver feels better to us. Blackberry seed oil and Chia seed oil are also in short supply in organic form for now. Farming changes take time as new operations can't switch instantly to being organic, so market shortages can take a moment to work out fully. Can't wait to share the new recipe with you, likely sometime in August! Until then just know we're plugging away at finding the best possible ingredients for the products we make to give you the best, cleanest, healthiest results possible.
Just wanted to post a THANK YOU for all the support in the last week. The sale was great and we're so happy that so many of you are going to be enjoying your products soon! We're officially *closed* just for a brief couple days today 7/3 through Sunday 7/6 for the holiday - no staff here and we're busy with friends and family, so if emails take a moment of extra time to answer just know we'll be back on the job on Monday. :) Have a fantabulous holiday!!!
