UPDATE: After a month of "hard" work visiting dozens of the beautiful treasures of San Diego suggested by our participants, we have selected winners for our Hidden Gems of San Diego contest. With so many outstanding leads (like the breathtaking whole-city views of Kate Sessions Park, hidden shopping in caves of La Jolla, and a canyon-crossing walking bridge in the woods downtown!), it was very difficult to pick just one "Gem" as our inspiration for a new product.
In the end, the answer for our product inspiration was staring (and oftentimes licking) us right in the face. San Diego's is filled with PUPPIES!!! Our beaches, parks, and even businesses all seem to boast puppy-friendly accommodations, and a general love for animals unparalleled in any other American city. San Diego is the home of world-class zoos, Aquariums, dog parks and beaches, a sprawling Safari Park, and the Scripps Center for Oceanography, among many other treasures.
San Diego loves its pets and wildlife so much, we decided that our next product should be dedicated to puppies. So, without further ado, we are proud to announce:
Gemtera's New PUP SOAP: With built-in finger-like projections that massage and get right into the fur, our new Pup Soap is unlike any other on the market. The cute dog-bone shape is functional as well, establishing a firm grip in its indentations so the soap won't slip away. This is a thick bar of mild, gentle soap, with lots of unique benefits:
- A non-slip, ergonomic "dog bone" shape, with ample, thick brush zones;
- "Finger-like projections" built right into the shape for a massaging, brushing shampoo experience;
- Vitamin E: Skin-nourishing, and calming, this vitamin is especially good for doggies with sensitive skin, and promotes overall health as an antioxidant;
- Castor Oil: The best essential oil for a shiny coat, this oil also promotes skin health and is soothing;
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil: A rare, natural flea and tick protection option, this oil is also a key part of our formulation;
- Mild glycerine and hypo-allergenic coconut soap base;
- No SLS, No preservatives, No unnatural ingredients!
