Anyone ever tried these products? I haven't seen a thread on this line on here.

No...but by those ingredients it looks like she used a base and added some oils to it.

I've never tried this line but the other poster is correct. These are just bases that the seller bought and repackaged. Click here to see the Citrus Conditioner http://tiny.cc/ycvrt Looks like that store is basically buying all their products from EW and just re-packaging. Too bad she has to lie in her About Us page regarding "mixing the products" herself. *sigh*

When this company first came out, I think, earlier this year, I recognized those bases off the bat from EW. So, I was never interested in trying them. On top of that, I get the impression that she tries to act like she makes these products herself, which is another turn off. Putting that aside, BeautifulBrwnBabyDol raves about it though. Here is her review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MciASlihgk.

Hello this is Nakeisha owner of Zipporah Beauty,LLC
I do make most of my products myself. Yes I do order the bases from EW (for the shampoo,conditioner,and lotion) also the Leave In Conditioner but I add a few things to the base for the Leave In Conditioner to make it my own but there's nothing wrong with that. A lot of companies order their bases/ingredients wholesale. I also order from other wholesale companies. I personally make all of my butters,my Vanilla Mint Moisturizing Hair Serum and Delight My Hair Moisturizer. I actually get in my kitchen & make these products myself.In the About Us section on my website I stated I began mixing the ingredients for a few of the products you see in my store today. I did not say all. When I read this post yesterday I had to go back and add the products I said I mixed together to clarify even more. I'm a truthful person I did not lie in anyway about my products. I'm not just going to stand for negative talk about my company especially when individuals don't have all the facts.I continue to add my own original products. So I just wanted to clear this up. Please stop the negative talk about my business. May you all have a blessed day

God Bless,
Nakeisha James

I use the combination of Vitamin E, Organic Green Tea extract,and Neem Oil to prolong the shelf life of the Green Tea Hair & Body Butter and for the Cocoa Butter Delight I use Vitamin E,Neem Oil,and Peppermint Essential Oil. Also keeping the butters stored in a dry cool place with the lid on securely helps as well.

There is nothing wrong with buying bases and adding to them. You just can't say that you mix the stuff yourself, because even though you add ingredients, you still do not formulate yourself (which is not a bad thing). All you do is customize. You have to understand that when you say you mix all your products, when you don't, you are misleading people--and people don't take kindly to businesses which mislead them intentionally or unintentionally

I'm glad that you clarified on your site what you make yourself. No one was being negative. People will patronize your business if you have a good product whether you make it from scratch or you buy a base and customize it. Either way it's legitimate business, just don't say that you do something which you don't, because it disappoints customers. No one is knocking you for your hustle. Do you and congrats on your business

I'm not going go back & forth on this but I will say this. I created/formulated/mixed all of my butters & moisturizers. You will not find these products anywhere else but Zipporah Beauty.

No one is going back and forth. I was being very kind in my response. I said that I was glad that you stated which products you actually made (after you saw this thread). I will say again, there is nothing wrong with using bases. No one was saying that you do not mix your butters yourself (you clarified this on your site, remember?). I was just pointing out that you can't say that you mix ALL your products yourself because that is misleading to customers
