Amy Francoeur was a little girl when she first toured a big factory in England and became fascinated with how body shop products were produced.

Today, Francoeur produces her own line of fine bath and body products in small batches from hand creams to facial masks embracing rare ingredients such as African Baobab and kukui nut oil.

“I like to do a lot of exotic things that you don’t find in other product lines,” Francoeur said. “Everything is made here, it’s all my own recipes.”

Since September, Francoeur has offered her line of products from her storefront at 107 3rd Street Unit C in Long Beach.

“My specialty is lotions and creams,” she said while stocking shelves with the latest seasonal fragrances.

“Right now I have all my heavy moisturizers out,” Francoeur said. “I have bath bombs in all different flavors.”
