New LAFCO Products to Try This Summer
Breathe in the scent of summer with new LAFCO candle pairings or sample fresh summer fragrances with a 4-ounce travel candle. Our candle pairings come in 6.5-ounce and 15.5-ounce sizing, consisting of two complementary fragrances like Fresh Cut Gardenia and Water Hyacinth. Each pairing features two of our premium hand-poured candles in art glass vessels made with naturally derived soy wax. Enjoy a clean, non-toxic burn thanks to a 100% cotton wick and a 50- to 90-hour burn time.
In many areas, heat is accompanied by humidity but the recent emphasis on hand-washing may be making your hands drier than usual this summer. Switch to LAFCO liquid soap in summer-friendly scents like Champagne or Chamomile Lavender to cleanse your skin while moisturizing and protecting it. Enriched with wheat proteins for all-day moisture retention and made with cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, LAFCO liquid soap leaves your skin fresh, clean, and luxuriously fragranced. Follow up with a pump of LAFCO hand cream for an added boost of reparative hydration.
