So we decided it might not be a bad idea to extend La Société Parisienne de Savons line with a quality hand cream with high concentration of natural shea and coco butter, no paraben, no phenoxyethanol...."in order to be in the mood of the eco-cosmetic wave".
Learning that the minimum order quantity for a 30ml tube was 10,000 pieces per design, we realized that 20 designs would require and order of 200,000 tubes, which is ambitious not to say crazy, so we opted for a single house brand.
I made one request, that we use an actual metal tube instead of the ersatz, encased in plastic, "metal-looking" tubes that are so prevalent and so boring today. So what if it gets crinkly and wrinkled as it gets used up. Perhaps we may even revive the lost art of rolling the tube up from the end. Hopefully, there are still a few old-timers left who could teach us.
Stay tuned for the next post to see how this stuff looked at the Paris Gift show last week.
