…I’M NOT A CHEMIST, I’M MORE LIKE A COOK EXPERIMENTING WITH FLAVORS AND MIXTURES…AND IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES, WHAT TRACE DOES A WOMAN LEAVE? A SCENT, A TASTE…
— PAUL GUERLAIN, MASTER PERFUMER.

A Word from the Mother of All C.A.O.S

This quote by one of the world's artisan master perfumers sums up precisely how I view myself when I’m creating product.  I am the "cook", so to speak, the formula developer and the scent creator for all things Water Oak Farms, Inc.   What is a formula?  It's a recipe in which capable hands artfully select the finest ingredients and transform them into something nourishing, comforting, pleasing to the body and the soul. I derive such pleasure in taking raw materials and blending them into products that not only feel luxurious on the skin but leave a trace of a scent that lingers after a woman, or a man, has left the room. There’s something so complimentary about being asked “what’s that beautiful scent you’re wearing?"  From our cleansing body bars to our hydrating skin treatments, you'll find 100% pure plant ingredients that envelop you in soul-stirring aromas.

Since 1998, I've been "cooking" up bath and body products that cleanse, soothe and nourish your body and your soul. I take great pride in the proprietary formulas, the exclusive scent blends, the pure, natural ingredients that make up the products that bear the name “Water Oak Farms, Inc.”  I take even greater pleasure that you have chosen to use my products to cleanse, soothe and scent your body & your soul.

Sincerely,
Pam Gautreau

Artisan Created

The very word “artisan” is associated with a person that produces something in limited quantities often using traditional methods. Have you ever happened onto a cheese maker’s tiny fromagerie or a boulangerie calling you in with the aromas of freshly baked bread? Perhaps a quaint bath & body boutique?

Often tucked into side alleys, off the beaten path, these little shops are the “art galleries” of the artisan crafters.  Great pride is taken in the freshness of ingredients, as well as, the oftentimes lengthy process undertaken to achieve that perfect crust of bread, wedge of cheese or a body product that just makes you say, “aahh”

Products created at WOF, Inc are done by using similar processes, in a way that honors the centuries of knowledge, experience and dedication of those artisan men and women who elevated their craft to a fine art. While some of the tools may be more modern, the tradition of hand-blending, working in small batches & selecting premium ingredients allows for a higher degree of quality. Nothing created at WOF, Inc. is mass produced, outsourced or attended to by computer run machinery. A true artisan puts her hands, heart & soul into her creations.  That’s the dedication put in to every product I produce at WOF, Inc.
