Meet a Local Business

Compostable Artifacts LLC

What makes your products or services unique? What will people get from your business that they won’t get elsewhere?

I personally handmake natural and sustainable cosmetic products such as body soap, deodorant, lip balm, toothpaste, and lotion. They are available in six different natural oils scents and everything comes in a compostable container with all ingredients listed on each product. 

What’s the best way that interested customers can connect with you or find more information?

The best way to get in contact with me is through my website, Facebook, and Instagram.

What inspires your work?

During my undergrad the only option I had was to shop at a Walmart super center to get cosmetic products, when I realized that they costed so much I quickly became innovative and looked into natural products online. I realized that they were still very expensive. Then I thought, well maybe I can make these. So I tried my first batch of lip balm and then took steps for other products.

How can people best support you or your community as we recover from the pandemic?

Obviously purchasing my products is at the top of that list. But in a more community sense I would love for people to be honest with me about how much they do/do not enjoy the products, to follow & interact with me on social media, and to keep inviting me to events for visibility.

Please provide any other information you want to share that these questions did not cover!

I would just like to add that I am following my passion for sustainability and natural products while working full time at UPMC. I am currently a Supply Specialist for Presbyterian hospital.
