Chef puts natural skin care products on bookstore menu

In his day job, Andrew Braithwaite is a chef with UWindsor Food Services, but his sideline cooking up handmade skin care products is also finding support on campus.

More than a dozen items in his Soap Chef line of soaps, lip balms, moisturizers, and sunscreen are available for purchase at the Campus Bookstore.

Braithwaite uses essential oils and natural ingredients to offer benefits beyond smelling good, promising anti-stress results “For healthy skin and a healthy mind.” And his made-to-order approach makes it possible to create specialty batches to meet client needs.

He expects some of his popular products, like charcoal soap for acne and oily skin, body butter for severe dry skin, and moisturizing lip balms to be “hot sellers in the coming winter weather.”
