About the author

Susan Barclay Nichols is a family support worker living and working in the Fraser Valley, B.C., Canada.  She stumbled upon a recipe for bath bombs and became obsessed with creating bath and body products. This is when her extreme interest in chemistry began. 

In 2009, she started Point of Interest, a bath and body products blog to share her love of creating products, and it somehow turned into a series of four e-books she wrote to raise money for the youth groups she and her husband run at their local libraries.

Her favorite hobbies – other than creating bath and body products – include sewing, trivia, criticizing and correcting people’s grammar and spelling, and striving to achieve expert status on bass in Rock Band 3. She lives with her wonderful husband, Raymond and their adorable dog, Sasja.

Our Customers Say...
This is only the third time that I've ordered from Lotioncrafter; but each time, I have been absolutely shocked at how quickly my order has been processed and shipped. The quality of the ingredients I have received are unmatched by any other company, the prices are extremely reasonable, and the customer service is quite obviously above and beyond my expectations. Thank you, Jen! I'm so glad to have found Lotioncrafter...
Krissy Macaluso

Items all arrived on time and very well packaged. It looks like Lotioncrafter took the time to wrap and label each item carefully, legibly and to protect from moisture and light. They even returned part of my shipping cost to just cover the actual incurred shipping cost. Nice and honest seller. Will definitely return to shop for some more stuff. Thank you!

I purchase a 5LBS bucket of Shea Nilotica from Lotion Crafter (my first time ever purchasing off this site). The creamy, buttery, light yellow color of it is amazing!!!! It is super soft, light scented, and looks like vanilla ice cream. I am VERY happy with my purchase,and will certainly purchase again. I use by itself on my skin and mix in my whipped body butters. It isn't grainy at all. 5 STARS!!
Charmaine Pitt, (SuriiShae Naturals)

I recently received my latest order from Lotioncrafter, quickly as always, even though it is a very busy time of the year. As usual, the products did not disappoint in any way. I must however comment on this Shea Nilotica I purchased. It is the most amazing shea butter I've ever used and I've tried them all. This shea butter is extremely creamy, softer than any others, with very little scent and has absolutely no graininess. It is truly amazing stuff
Lynne Menard

I have placed a couple of orders so far and have been pleased with the very quick shipping and the products.

Thank you.
