Erin Shriver, owner and designer of Biotropica LLC, produces a premier line of naturally based and tropically inspired body care products. From moisturizing shampoos to deliciously scented “Island Whip Body Butter” to our now famous “Bug Stuff”, Biotropica has been receiving rave reviews everywhere it is introduced.
Erin Shriver started her company while pregnant with her daughter Bianca. This was what in fact inspired her to begin creating her own luscious body creams, lotions and oils. The company has since grown and is now working with resorts and stores around the globe. Biotropica is currently the exclusive product line for Kamalame Cay Resort and Spa located on a private island in the Bahamas. Other locations include Alphonse Island Resort in the Seychelles Islands as well as The Panoi River Lodge in Russia.
Biotropica currently carries an array of tropically inspired goodies and Biotropica is planning a launch of 10 new products by July 2006.
Inspired by warm tropical sun, rich nourishing seawater, deeply scented salt air and the relaxed attitude that comes with island life, Biotropica promises to invigorate yet soothe your body and soul. Biotropica has embraced the natural elements of the tropics by using sea salt, exotic oils and select plant extracts in their carefully formulated products. Biotropica adds a touch of island spice to everything they make and hope that while pampering your skin with Biotropica you will experience a rejuvenation of mind, body and spirit.
