Shopify website design for a bath and body shop

Pure Luxe Apothecary

Creating a streamlined purchasing process for a skincare brand.

The Challenge

Leslie sold her line of natural skincare products through Etsy, a few wholesale accounts, and at local farmer’s markets. While this initial approach allowed her to develop a proof of concept and gradually ease into making larger product batches, she knew she needed to grow online sales in order to grow the business. Her original WooCommerce site gave her a lack of control, from the look of her newsletter signup to the difficulty of downloading a simple report. She didn’t enjoy using her website, so she avoided updating it, which wasn’t great for business.

Our Approach

Leslie needed a new website that would help differentiate her line of natural skincare products. We began by honing a brand strategy for Pure Luxe, then writing new product descriptions that included buyer testimonials to help make up for the fact that online customers cannot smell, feel, or try products. To improve site usability, we reconfigured the website’s main navigation, dividing products into more intuitive categories. We also designed a blog so Leslie could continue to communicate her unique value by writing posts about her process and ingredients.

I absolutely recommend Aeolidia to other entrepreneur friends. You have finely tuned your craft and offer a high-quality experience, thoughtful products/projects, and excellent resources. I love that you specialize in working with makers and artisans who are ready to take the next step to grow their business. I also love that your team is made of specialists who are also makers and business owners themselves.

Custom Shopify website for a bath and body brand

Processing orders is so much easier – I appreciate the ease and consistency. Adding products and images is a breeze. I’m glad to have a Stockists page and place to include upcoming market dates. Customers are utilizing the contact page. Wholesale clients are starting to use the online order form. I love all the detail of the site and enjoy using it! The feedback I’ve gotten on the website has been so positive. It’s definitely a more streamlined and clear purchasing process and creates trust with users.
