Inspired by A Natural Way of Life
Here at Mom's Stuff, we believe that happy skin is a key to a happy life.
Since 1995 we've been helping people get happy skin by making products that are pure, safe, and effective. We believe in real results and we know you will love how our products make your skin look and feel.
All of our natural ingredients are locally and/or ethically sourced and selected for specific properties. We do not use any fillers (water, synthetics, stabilizers, cheap waxes or oils), which means that every ingredient in our products is an 'active' ingredient. The result: highly concentrated, all-natural products that we are confident will out-perform others you have tried.
All of our products are original; the recipes were carefully developed by Lee Bennion (aka Mom) and tested on our family and friends. Today our products are still lovingly handmade in small batches at our workshop in Spring City, Utah.
*CRUELTY FREE (WE TEST PRODUCTS ON OUR FAMILY!)
*NO TOXINS (SULFATES, PARABENS, ETC.)
*CONCENTRATED, EFFECTIVE FORMULAS WITH NO FILLERS
*TRULY ALL-NATURAL, MADE WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS
*MADE BY HAND WITH LOVE
Lee Udall Bennion is a painter who lives in rural Utah with her husband Joe, a potter. As artists they use their hands all the time, and their active country lifestyle includes gardening and landscaping on several acres of land, the upkeep of an orchard, chopping and hauling wood, and feeding and caring for a host of animals (dogs, chickens, horses, cats). In addition, Lee and Joe are passionate about wilderness and spend considerable time hiking, river rafting and horseback riding in all seasons. All this hard work and play takes a toll on their skin, especially hands and feet.
In 1995, frustrated by want of a skincare product that met her family’s needs, Lee began cooking up salves in her kitchen. She was inspired by traditional recipes and the ingredients she found in her local environment. Five years of patient experimenting later, word began to get out that Lee’s homemade salve was better and more protective skin care than anything commercially available. Friends and associates clamored for it, and a business was born. For many years she made and sold a single product: Mom's Stuff Salve (now called All-Purpose Piñon Salve). As the company, product line and customer base grew, we shortened the company name to Mom's Stuff, but we remain a small, family-run company with a commitment to crafting superior natural products.
