Who knew that when my brother Rob finally convinced me to put a basket of my homemade soap in my salon to sell, it would be the beginning of this amazing journey I have been on for the past 10 years? That, coupled with a class my friend Donna signed us up for which I mistakenly thought was advanced soaping. It turned out to be a goat milk lotion class in which I really had no interest. I went anyway. The same instructor announced she taught a liquid soap making class as well. That caught my interest. Hair salon…shampoo…BINGO! Although that is how my line was born, it took me 2 more years to figure out that the castile soap I learned to make was not suitable for shampoo. Since I finish everything I start, I had to learn why! (More on that in a future post.)
Ten years later, here I am, writing my very first blog post. Welcome. I’m honored and humbled that you are reading this. (My gosh, I’m starting to cry.) I never had any intention of “going public” with my line, as there are a lot of crazies out there and I didn’t want to become vulnerable. But as time went on and more and more people were touched by my products, they urged me to spread the good word, that it was too good a product to keep a secret. Anyone who knows me, knows I don’t do anything halfheartedly…it’s all or nothing, baby! So they convinced me to go “all in”. (I swore I would NEVER be on Facebook!!! Never say never. LOL.) That’s how Robilotti Products for Bath, Body and Home was born. And the rest, as they say is history!
