In a decision that took a year to come to fruition, Tomboy Soap Company has just relaunched itself as Smart By Nature, with an upgraded look and feel to bring the handcrafted soap and body products business more visibility in the larger skincare marketplace. Locals can get a firsthand peek at Tomboy’s new brand and new packaging at the upcoming Telluride Holiday Arts Bazaar – the very sale where Tomboy founder Jessica Newens first introduced her soap in the late 1990s.

“After 10-plus years as a locals’ brand, we wanted to upgrade the look and messaging to support the new-age consumer desire to know more about their skin care choices,” says Tomboy Soap owner Denise Weaver, who purchased the company from Newens in 2008. “Furthering Jessica’s desire to ‘do the right thing’ with ingredients, we are taking things to a new level by using creative ways to help our customers understand why we need to let nature make us smarter.” Hence the new name, Smart By Nature. It features a new look, as well, with nature illustrations and vibrant colors printed on labels made from tree-free Fiberstone paper. Look for Tomboy’s great existing product line of cold-processed soaps, lip balms, bath salts, lotions and more, with slight name variations (Moonflower soap, Cool Mint lip balm, Calm bath salts).  

Smart By Nature hosts a booth at the Holiday Arts Bazaar, Dec. 7-9 at the Telluride High School cafeteria. Hours are Friday, 5-8 p.m., Saturday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. For more information on Smart By Nature, go to http://www.facebook.com/SmartByNature. A new website is in the works.
