Local entrepreneur Caitlin Brotz’s award-winning hand-crafted skin care products will be included in gift bags collated by The Artisan Group®, at the GBK's pre-Primetime Emmys Celebrity Gift Lounge
Sheboygan, Wisconsin, US, July 18, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -Sheboygan, WI -- It may be long way from Sheboygan, Wisconsin to Hollywood, but a bit of the “spirit on the lake” will find its way into the hand of some entertainment’s biggest names when they receive samples of local entrepreneur Caitlin Brotz’s award-winning hand-crafted skin care products. Brotz, the founder of Olivü 426, has announced that her Anti-Aging/Moisturizing Face Serum and her Lip Balm will be included in gift bags collated by The Artisan Group®, at the GBK Pre-Primetime Celebrity Gift Lounge in Honor of the Emmy Awards in Beverly Hills on August 22-23.
Brotz’s shop, Olivü 426, is a favorite stop among tourists and locals alike, where visitors can customize natural personal care products on the spot by choosing fragrances, colors, essences and herbs to create soaps, lotions, lip balms and other products to suit their tastes. The unique hands-on business model and commitment to high-quality has won Olivü 426 two business awards and an invitation to the The Artisan Group®, an exclusive, juried arts promotion organization considered a favorite gifting participant at many celebrity events.
The anti-aging/moisturizing face serum that celebrities will be receiving contains Brotz’s proprietary blend of natural oils, including pomegranate, blackberry seed, rosehip and carrot seed oils that nourish and detoxify the skin, and lightly scented with a touch of lavender oil. The all-natural hydrating lip balm has a kiss of pomegranate flavor—the company’s favorite among its customers.
“I’m excited to have Olivü 426 participate in in the GBK Gift lounge as a part of The Artisan Group, and I can’t wait to see which celebrities receive the Anti-Aging Serum and Lip Balm packs,” says Brotz. She added that the serum is by far her most popular product, accounting for 30% of Olivü 426 sales. "We make everything fresh daily and use nothing but all-natural products,” she adds.
While Brotz does not yet know which celebrities will be lucky enough to get her prized serum, past attendees to the GBK Gift Lounge in Honor of the Emmys have included Neil Patrick Harris, Joe Mantegna, Mayim Bialik, Kate Flannery, Joanne Froggatt, RJ Mitte, Yvette Nicole Brown, Dennis Quaid, Harry Hamlin, Elizabeth McGovern, Penny Marshall, Raphael Sbarge, Jason Isaacs, Dot-Marie Jones, Brian McKnight, T.J. Thyne, Tempestt Bledsoe, Chris Noth, Willie Garson, Lesley Nicol, Dania Ramirez, Barry Bostwick, and a host of other well-known screen personalities.
The road to Brotz’s success was not an easy one, as it was a personal tragedy that jump-started her business in 2003, when an accident severely burned her then-boyfriend Adam, a semi-pro snowmobile racer, as he built a wood chip track for practice, and a therapist encouraged Brotz to make a lip balm specifically blended to promote Adam’s healing. Brotz not only shared the product with friends, but eagerly researched further to formulate a healing whipped lotion to minimize Adam’s scarring, and he recovered wonderfully. The company name, Olivü 426, a homophone for “I love you,” hints at the olive oil that many of Brotz’s products contain; 426 was the number of the snowmobile so beloved by Adam, who tragically died in a car accident in 2005.
In 2006, Olivü 426 formally opened its brick-and-mortar doors, and a year later, starting selling online to reach a wider audience. The lip balm and whipped lotion are still among the popular items on the product list, along with an array of other all-natural products that heal, protect and enhance face, body, lips, and hair, as well as collections specifically formulated for men and children. Shop staff assiduously hand-pour products daily to ensure freshness of the all-natural ingredients.
Perhaps most unique about Olivü 426’s now flourishing skin care business model is the create-your-own option, offering a mind-boggling choice of fragrances that range from floral, woodsy and fruity, to evocative, sensual and the downright unusual, such as tomato leaf, earl grey tea and tobacco flower. Customers may also choose from additional natural ingredients that soothe, rejuvenate, or scrub, like oatmeal, dead sea salts, berry seeds, clays and rose petals.
“While I don't think our serum will shut down any Beverly Hills plastic surgery clinics any time soon," laughs Cailtlin, referring to the Hollywood stereotype of a preoccupation with youthfulness, “I do hope that our gift bag recipients will love our age-defying duo.”
