My Shop

Thank you for checking what I have to offer. While you might be expecting me to sell food items, I am proud to let you know that Manang Kusinera has started a small home business, selling handcrafted soaps (bars and liquid), lotions, creams, lip balms, salves, etc. all FROM SCRATCH.

Please visit my site http://kleopatraskincare.com/shop to check out what I have to offer.

I have graduated from creating recipes for dishes to creating recipes for gentle, nourishing soaps and lotions and other skin care products made using mostly natural ingredients, many of which are homegrown, organically raised, and sustainable. If you have been a reader of my food blog for a while now, you will notice that in some videos or photos, I was wearing gloves. That's because I suffered from eczema for 6 years, as a result of working as a nurse. My eczema resolved when I started using my homemade soaps and lotions, which I did not expect at all to happen. Making soaps and lotions were just another hobby for me that replaced cooking and baking. My co-workers who saw how my eczema resolved were the ones who urged me to sell my homemade skin care creations. They even promote my products to our patients. Some patients-turned-buyers even asked me if my products were available in some local stores...Well, I will get there. In the meantime, they are available online.

If you have enjoyed my site and if my recipes have helped you gain skills in the kitchen, you can return the favor by helping me build my business through recommending my online shop to those whom you think might be interested in more natural skin care products, those who are trying to ditch the junk (not only junk food but also junk in skin care), those who are running out of options to try in solving their problematic and sensitive skin, and those mothers who would rather spend money on quality skin care products for their family.

You can share my facebook page Kleopatra Skin Care to your friends and relatives to introduce my online store and for them to get an idea of the principles I have in creating my products.  Kindly hit like and share away! You will never know who will be helped, like I did not know my eczema would go away after 6 years of suffering from it.

Thank you for taking the time to know about my business.
