Dear Camamu friends,
It’s been tooooo long, but we’re back, and we have lots to catch up on!
We’ve been crazy-busy creating a delightful assortment of goodies for you & your four-legged friends. Had a blast making twenty (!!!) - yeah 20, NEW organic body care delights, full of love, merriment, and giggles, and we've gathered a few other treats for you as well ;-)
This cornucopia has butters for your heels, safflower and citrus sugar scrubs, bath salts studded with magical herbs, flowers and spices, rose clay foot soaks for tired tootsies, bees’n raspberries lip balms, cardamom/cinnamon chap sticks (yumm!), Zen kits to keep you grounded and nourished, exquisite oil fragrances, organic vinegar rinses infused with roses, lavender, nettles and lemon verbena to keep your tresses shiny and healthy, and a spirited tonic and aftershave.
Now for the soaps: Prairie Rain was inspired by our trip to Georgia O’ Keefe’s ranch this summer -- it is the prettiest creamy soap with wisps of green clay, teensy dots of poppy seeds and sprinkles of periwinkle corn flower petals; Minty Passion has a tingly refreshing scent you won’t be able to get enough of; Flowers Whisper will transport you to a fragrant garden no matter what the season, and Dreamy Sky is well, that gorgeous Pacific Northwest grey-blue sky color with amber sunset swirls to soothe your body and soul.
And, last but not least, we’ve gathered a beautiful array of genuine Pestemal Turkish Towels and blankets woven on the loom. Oh, and we almost forgot to mention: we now have soft immaculate white organic cotton robes woven in a pretty waffle pattern.
P.S. We are jazzed to participate in Little Boxes for the first time - the most fun Black Friday & Saturday Portland indie business shopping. Stop by and get 10% off on ALL products, old and new.

Your Camamu Soap Team
Camamu Soap is excited to announce its new owners, Stuart Bailey and Anca Bailey.
We’re a husband and wife team committed to green living, and continuing the ethos and mission of creating natural 100% organic skin care products through artisanal techniques.
In case you wondered, we will continue to produce and carry ALL of the original soaps designed by the creator of Camamu, Lori Basson, as well as keep raising the bar and expanding our 100% natural, gluten-free and vegan products for skin and haircare.
a little about Stu . . .
One of the few “natives” left in PDX, super creative and a futurist, somewhat of a renaissance man being a mixed media artist, and corporate creative who loves to cook, play guitar, jump off deep snow cornices in 19 degree weather, and invent things. When he’s in the garden, where their two zany dogs, Frankie and Mika play and talk for hours about squirrels and frisbee, his wicked sense of humor and general goof-ball ways unleash.
& a little about Anca…
Romanian by descent, her path took her through Germany, Washington D.C, the Bay Area and finally, yup finally to Portland. She’s a former psychotherapist, whose creative interests are boundless: painting, drawing, collage, encaustic, print-making, textile design, creating whimsical lamps and then... she loves to sew, felt, weave, and make magical organic potions from herbs and essential oils. When she’s done with that, it comes as no surprise she’s wildly creative in the kitchen too. Oh, one last item Anca invented —the 48 hour clock — why? Well, she’s is currently pursuing her certification in Organic Skin and Hair Care formulation.
If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by the studio and shop.
We hope that you all have had a wonderful holiday season and a love-filled start to the New Year. We are finally settled down here in Portland after an unusual snow-turn-to-ice storm that shut the city down for the better part of a week.
The soap wheel kept turning and now here we are, close to the end of January with Valentine's Day just around the corner. Heart soaps anyone? We have pocketfuls so don't hesitate to order and show yourself or someone else some good, clean loving!
Owning a small, artisan business is a lot of work. There are endless things to do and sometimes it feels like a never-ending slog. But, there is a reason for what we do, a joy and satisfaction that comes from keeping old traditions alive, from making a product that satisfies its users on many levels and, most importantly, from helping people, in small ways, have a better life. We recently received this message from a customer and wanted to share it with you.
"I continue to be amazed by your shampoos! I have struggled with an itchy, dry scalp and dandruff since I was 8 years old. It was a huge source of frustration and embarrassment for me growing up. Even in my adult years, I would itch my scalp to the point of blood. I have tried every over-the-counter and medicated shampoo and cream there is and had minimal success and/or relief. This all changed about six months ago when my neurologist was giving me an occipital nerve block and commented how dry and red my scalp was. He then told me about your shampoos that he had just discovered himself. I now cannot live without your shampoos.
Thank you for being an answer to years of prayer and a soothing relief to the dryness, itchiness, and self-consciousness. Thank you!!"
This is what makes it all worthwhile. Thank you for being a part of Camamu. We wish you all a magical holiday season, filled with love, blessings and best wishes for the new year ahead.
Your friends at Camamu.
