My name is Stephanie Thurman. I own an organic bath & body company right here in Tulsa called Theraganics – which stands for therapeutic organics. My husband, sister, and brother in law have recently joined me in helping us expand. We are dedicated to using only all natural ingredients and the finest essential oils for scent.
What do you create?
We create some of the finest handcrafted all natural soap you’ll find using the traditional cold process method which leaves in the retained glycerin. We’ve perfected all of our soap recipes to provide luxurious lather that leaves your skin moisturized without all of the chemicals and detergents typically found in other products. We also have excellent creams, bath bombs, lip balms, lotion sticks, and will be constantly introducing more products!
What do YOU love about the products you make?
I love everything about our products! I’ve struggled with skin issues for the majority of my life – after switching to using chemical free products I’ve experienced a 100% change for the better. We use everything we make on ourselves. I love being able to not only educate people about product ingredients, but I’ve received some very heartwarming feedback from customers who have told us that our products change their life after suffering from various skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.
Where do you find inspiration?
My inspiration not only comes from my own experience with skin issues, but seeing so many other people who have no idea where their problems are coming from when it’s the very products they use daily causing irritation.
The Alliday Show believes that everyday should be celebrated as a holiday! That being said, which holiday do you wish were everyday and why?
I wish everyday was Earth Day – that way people would consciously be doing things in their everyday life to be more green – every day.
If you could create a new holiday, what would it be and how would it be celebrated?
It would be a holiday where everyone uses natural soap for one day! For most people that’s all it takes – one use and they’re hooked!
Any funny holiday memories or stories you’d like to share?
One Christmas when I first started making natural soap I gave everyone in our family soap for Christmas. At first they thought it was a little strange but now it’s become a must have!
Will you be unveiling any new goods at Alliday?
We sure will! We are developing an all natural hand sanitizer and also hair care products!
What are you most excited about for the upcoming Alliday Show?
We are looking forward to meeting everyone. We love to talk to people and show them our excellent products.
