1977 was the first time I started combining my fragrance with my Shea Butter. I never expected that what I called a lazy formula (combining my fragrance with Shea Butter just to save time in the morning) would become a business, a successful one at that. When I gave my co-workers a sample of what I was using everyday after washing my hands multiple times while working in the Allied Health field, it became a favorite among different units around the hospital. The response was overwhelming to where my co-workers were willing to pay for more and that is how the business started. I realized the product spoke for itself. What really was exciting was the fact that in 2 weeks, I would continue to get repeat business from the same customers and then I knew I had something that people like, desired and wanted more of.
I then relocated to Las Vegas from Texas after hurricane Harvey wiped us out of everything we owned and continued my business at the local swap meet. From there the product took off, people all over the world would come to the swap meet and bring our product back to their state and then the orders would come in from all over the United States. I can't tell you how grateful I am to all of my loyal customers who remind me each and everyday how lucky I am to have a product that is healthy and can be used on every part of your body, each and every day.
I Thank You~Gerard Barnes "The Shea Butter Man"
