So as we all know, your skin is the largest organ of our bodies.  So does it make sense that we nourish it with good stuff, just like we nourish the rest of our body with good food, laughter and fresh air?  The following are This Or That Recommendations For Your Skin Cleanser:

Soap Can Also be Super Fun!

Who says soap should come in a bar? What if if came in cupcake form or adorable sheep perhaps? Colorado soap makers are stepping up to make both your soap useful but beautiful, cute and even clever.  Here are some cute ones we have seen. 

Yes, these are actually 100% soap!

Why This or That?

Would you choose this or that? That is the question.  I am setting out on a learning journey to find comparative everyday household products, foods and gifts that can be purchased from with in Colorado.  I am asking you to tune in each week to find out what THIS or THAT will be highlighting. 

Created In Colorado would like to propose a challenge: Try to replace one household item with one that’s made in Colorado each week, or even once per month.  At first you might believe this might be challenging, but I will be providing you with some excellent comparable choices for you to choose from, so watch out, and tune in!

By the way, anything that is in ever in the THAT column is not under fire,  or disliked.  Its just not a favorite when compared to the much better THIS column.  

Just one item per week or even per month could make a difference in your local economy.  Especially if everyone participated.  So...share this, talk about it, what ever it takes, lets make a difference together.

Look in our directories for other awesome local choices!!
