I needed a broom. You know the sort… the one with the sturdy, wooden handle, tightly woven natural straw bristles, the hard-working, old-fashioned kind that last and last, the ones that are dependable.
My husband volunteered to pick one up while he was running other errands. I told him what I needed; I showed him my other one, the straw worn down next to nothing, although still somewhat useable and intact. He came home, so proud of himself for choosing a more modern broom–lightweight plastic handle, plastic bristles, pretty color, and he added, “Less expensive!”
It was time to put the broom to work; yes it was pretty… it wasn’t what I asked for, wasn’t what I wanted or expected, but we’ll see what she can do… what she’s made of. On the second sweep, the handle broke at the base of the broom. I had barely used any pressure, and it just snapped in two! Oh sure, it was a ‘light-weight’ alright, and definitely cheap! I returned the broom to the store, and the saleslady asked, “Do you want to go get another one?” I said, “No! I want something made in America!”
‘Made in America’ has always stood for quality. Sturdy construction. Sound design. Quality parts. Well-thought out ideas– a ‘Zen’ of thinking from beginning to end. It’s tough to find American made products these days… we have to search them out, make a concentrated effort, but it is soooototally worth it.
Take note: J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar and products are totally, and lovingly hand-made in America… J.R. has literally poured his heart and soul into each shampoo bar from the mixing of each formulation specific bar, to the heating, drying, hand cutting, and wrapping. He uses the best oils; skin softening Jojoba, anti-oxidant Rosemary, anti-septic and anti-fungal Lavender, Tea Tree to battle skin infections, moisturizing Almond oil, invigorating peppermint oil, Aloe Vera for minor skin irritations, and the list goes on. The bar contains no SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulfate, a very harsh, stripping detergent), is not tested on animals, nor contains animal products. Just 100% AWESOME!
Each Shampoo Bar is so natural, so healthy, so pure (made with fresh, sparkling clean, New Hampshire spring water), so completely bio-degradable from the beginning to the end, that something as good as this–as good for us as this, is fortunately for you and me, Made in America! Frankly, I feel like shouting that out! We are proud of that!
Lucian Tielens realized the importance of quality when he spoke of using just about anything within arm’s reach that produced suds to wash his hair… “I’ve run the gamut and used pretty much anything you can think of to wash my hair at one time or another, so I came to appreciate a good quality hair product.”
Shrunken clothing, ripped seams, broken tools, brooms snapped in two… useless, cheap, throw-away items that don’t work, don’t do the job promised, and don’t perform are a waste of my time and money. J.R.LIGGETT’S Made in America shampoo bar is quality personified. It’s what I reach for while by-passing the 3 for $4 ‘deal’ on the store shelf, because I know this shampoo bar delivers from every angle. No broken promises, satisfaction guaranteed, and it will definitely sweep you off your feet!
Have a happy and safe July 4th!
