Grand Rapids, Michigan based Serene Body Essentials (http://www.serene-body-essentials.com) will be gifting its Filthy Scoundrel Beer Soap Bar to members of the press at GBK’s 2016 Primetime Emmys Celebrity Gift Lounge, in association with The Artisan Group®. The Gift Lounge takes place September 16-17, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California.

A full size, four ounce bar of the popular artisan soap (retail $6.00), will be included in The Artisan Group’s signature black swag bags, which will be presented to select press and media attending the event.

Recipients will find their Filthy Scoundrel Beer Soap Bar wrapped in a Serene Body Essentials branded paper soap sleeve, tucked inside a black organza bag.

“Our natural skin care, bath and body products are handcrafted right here in Grand Rapids, Michigan using healthful ingredients,” remarked Jennifer Knapp, the founder of Serene Body Essentials. “We use natural ingredients that you can pronounce because we know our customers want to know what they’re putting on their skin.”

Jennifer relates that since Grand Rapids is known as Beer City U.S.A., she wanted to create a beer-based soap that would represent the local scene. She decided upon Founders Brewing Co.’s popular scotch ale, Dirty Bastard. “With lots of suds, and plenty of moisturizing, it’s the perfect gift choice for skin care and beer enthusiasts, male or female,” she said.

Jennifer’s passion for creating bath and spa products began as a response to aluminum allergies she was experiencing. In-depth research lead her to create an aluminum-free deodorant. Hooked on what she was learning, she developed a range of products that began replacing the chemical-laden ones lining her family’s bathroom shelves.

Word of mouth about how great the products were led to requests from family and friends. “That was in 2012 and now here I am, a successful business owner.”

The company’s most popular products include its handmade artisan soaps, which leave the skin feeling clean and residue free and the all natural tinted lip balm, which contains no petroleum jelly.

Currently, the company’s focus is on preparing for autumn and holiday shoppers. “Hard as it is to believe, fall is right around the corner,” notes Jennifer. “We love working with pumpkin, cinnamon, clove and other spices during this time of year. As winter comes on, we’ll incorporate lots of mint – it echoes the feeling of fresh, crisp snow.”

Serene Body Essentials natural and organic skincare products can be purchased online at http://www.serene-body-essentials.com, at the Fulton Street Artisan Market in Grand Rapids and through numerous Michigan brick and mortar locations, including: Lux Salon for Men in Grand Rapids; Stokes Homestead Farm Market in Grand Junction; Skin by Carolyn; MILocal Market in Grand Haven; Flowers by Anna in Buchanan and Craft Handmade in Adrian. Out-of-state retailers include Black River Traditions in Annapolis, Missouri and The Vintage Locket in West Jefferson, North Carolina.

The company is part of Local First in Grand Rapids, a community that supports local business, and has appeared on The Morning Show with Shelley Irwin.
