The line started by Gretchen Christina Maser is about keeping simple, clean and natural. However, the story of how it happened started long before that. Christina Maser, a bath and body product line from Lancaster, PA is the newest local line we are happy to introduce you to.
"It all started somewhere around 1990 when a friend of mine taught me to make jam! Thinking back to that first batch of strawberry jam…Wow! Who knew?! So, jam making indirectly led to gardening, which somehow led to soap making, which inevitably led to candle making! It wasn’t really that quick or that simple, but however many years later, I'm here with my Christina Maser line."
Gretchen sources her ingredients from the U.S., makes sure that ingredients are sustainably grown, and each product only contains ingredients from nature. Her products and their ingredients are cruelty free and were never tested on animals. They also do everything by hand.
"The most sophisticated pieces of equipment we use are mixers and stick blenders."
By doing everything by hand in small batches, Gretchen believes you get the best results.
The Healthy Grocer is happy to welcome the Christina Maser line. Look for candles, bath salts, and room sprays in our Bath and Body section.
