Christine Chanter Botanicals in the Media


Really excited!! Indie Beauty Expo is the penultimate trade show for creators and makers of great handmade grooming and beauty products. And to top it off… super thrilled to share a space with a fab company from the UK, Electric Ink! They’re a tattoo skincare line in London. It simply couldn’t be a better fit. We are going to rock this thing. Thanks so much, to IBE for inviting me! And well, New York City… I just love that town.

NYC's NICHE Apothecary Journal reviews Bush Country

A couple of weeks ago, Jana Knauerova, responded to a tweet I put up on Korean women getting pubic hair transplants.  We chatted back and forth a bit.  More impetus to get the oils and I to New York, right?  And then, yesterday, this lovely review from NICHE Apothecary Journal of which Jana is a writer/reviewer along with three other lovely folks.  They LOVE Bush Country.  That pink grapefruit is blushing, now.  Love their journalling, do check them out. You can find them on Instagram and Twitter, too.  Here’s the sweet article:

QVC asks CCBotanicals to pitch the show!

It isn’t what Karl Ove Knausgaard has in his closet that’s memorable – it’s that impressive facial hair. Knausgaard, the serial Norwegian autobiographer, has probably the most famous literary beard since Farley Mowat, the hirsute Canadian writer and environmentalist who died in May. How does the international sensation keep his salt-and-pepper scruff so consistently short and spiky? Only Don Johnson knows for sure.

Toronto Life Magazine: “Small Batch Beauty” pages 89 to 91

It’s very exciting to see so many organic lotion and potion producers in Toronto.  I’m honoured  to be included amongst them.  Such a thrill to have my CCB Parfums chosen as one of the 6 ‘Cream of the Crop’ faves, in the city.  And if that weren’t enough, in the ‘Organic Pharm’ section (love that new farm spelling, might have to use that) the reviewers head up my Muscle roll-on as the go to for ‘Muscle Aches’.  I’m right chuffed 🙂

They got the prices wrong sadly, but’s the shout-out that counts.’s the excerpt from the Toronto Life magazine, October 2014 on page’s 90 and 91. There were 6 top choices.
