After giving shoe care advice in the “The Official Shoe Care Thread: Tutorials, Photos, etc.” thread for the last couple of years I decided to make my own shoe polish. Not just any shoe polish, but all natural, non-toxic shoe polish. I wanted to make something that would compete in quality with Saphir cream polish, but also be non-toxic and smell pleasant. I actually like the smell of the turpentine solvent that Saphir uses in their products, but my wife hates the smell. So I decided to create GlenKaren Care Products (shoe polish). I use food grade orange oil as the solvent in my polish, so it has a mild citrus smell to it. I also use coconut oil for the conditioner, as well as beeswax and carnauba wax for shine. Non-toxic earth pigment is used for coloring. I also created a high shine paste that is very high in carnauba wax, as well as a very creamy cleaner/conditioner. All products come in a 3oz (100ml actually) tureen jar. The Cream Polish currently comes in 4 colors: Black, Dark Brown, Brown, and Light Brown. The High Shine paste is Neutral in color, and the Cleaner/Conditioner is clear in color. I put up a web site at (www.glenkarencare.com) to explain the products in more detail. Each 3oz Jar of polish (and cleaner/conditioner) sells for $19.95. (did I mention it is all natural, non-toxic, and hand crafted). I wanted to give a discount to the members of this forum for the initial release of the polish, but the cost of shipping would negate any realistic discount I could offer. So, for members in the continental United States, I will ship your order USPS priority mail and I will pick up the shipping for the next couple of weeks (offer ends March 1st 2013). I apologize to all of the members outside the United States, but the shipping for a product of this price is so out of scale that it simply does not make sense to sell and ship small quantities (but I can if you want to incur the shipping costs). I do hope to make this a commercial enterprise at some point so if anyone knows of a reseller in Europe, Canada, Australia, or Asia that would carry this type of product please let me know (I hope to have resellers in the US soon). In any case, please help a fellow member out and buy a jar of my polish. Thanks.
