  • Riley Oh, Those Dog Days of Summer!

    A dog can’t think that much about what she’s doing, she just does what feels right. ~ Barbara Kingsolver

    You ready for the heat to back off a bit? As you can see, Riley, our Director of Snacks & Naps, is too! While the phrase “dog days of summer” implies that it’s time to lie around and slurp popsicles, we really don’t have that luxury, right? We’re too occupied “working like a dog,” gulping Starbucks Lattes (Venti, please!) and getting organized for all things FALL. New clothes for the kids. New activities and schedules to juggle. Pinning what we’re pining for. And so on…

    Ever wish you could just stop time (and the ding on your devices) for just a few days, so you can catch your breath and tackle those “to-do” items that never manage to get checked off? Yeah, this hot, steamy summer has been like that—for us, too. In fact, we’ve got so many things shakin’ at Rutz (all good things) that we’ve kind skipped over the “blog days of summer.” Yup, we’ve been AWAL here in blog land since the launch of our new site,, in July. But that’s about to change.

    Here’s what’s coming up:

    • We’ve got a new blog writer, Deb Warren. Deb is not new to Rutz, she’s been one of my behind-the-scenes gal pals since Day 1. She’s not new to skincare either. She has a blogging background as a former writer for a Pittsburgh medical spa ( Deb will be informing you about all things SKIN. Look for her new Rutz blogs soon!
    • How to Videos! Not sure how to apply some of your products? Want to see beauty tips in action? Want to view how sun damage really happens? Look for Rutz videos in coming months!
    • There are exciting new products under development, like an antioxidant tea scrub, a lip exfoliator, a body serum that leaves you all aglow, holiday gift bundles—and more.
    • Want to be a Rutz product tester? We could use your feedback on the new products we’d like to ad to the Rutz line-up. Just message us when you place your next order and we’ll throw in a couple of new goodies to try!
    • We’re on TV—AGAIN at EvineLive, a home shopping network.

    FOR A GREAT DEAL, WATCH EVINE LIVE—Friday, September 2nd at 7 pm (EST)

    Yep, yours truly will be conducting a product demonstration on EVINE’s home shopping show.

    Two of Rutz’ best sellers, Glow Ahead an anti-wrinkle serum containing 1% Retinol, and Freeze Frame, an intensive night-time skin resurfacer containing 10% Glycolic Acid, will be showcased in my live presentation. These mindfully made products contain natural, botanical—yet effective—ingredients and are paraben-free and cruelty-free.

    The show can be streamed via mobile device here:

    That’s all for now! Stay cool!

    Best! XOXO


  • Welcome to our new website!

    Change is good, right?

    Every blue moon, I like to get a mini makeover. You know, to change things up a bit. Truth be known, I’m a bit of a minimalist, so even a fresh lop of the locks or a killer pair of new strappy sandals (complete with pedicure, of course) has a way of perking me right up.

    Well, our original website needed a lift, too. But not just to pretty it up. We needed a pretty big overhaul. And for good reason…

    We’ve grown!

    What began in 2013 with just three skincare products, has grown into a complete nature-based skincare line for women. And we remembered our male counterparts—especially those who’ve been purchasing our skincare line for their ladies. We listened to their needs and created a men’s skincare trio for our lovely gents.

    And just as the Rutz skincare line was conceived based on a need (my own desire for both natural ingredients AND effective results) I had another need. I wanted an everyday household cleaner I could use on my counters and then make grab n’ go sandwiches for my kids—without a plate. Yep, sometimes, life is just that rushed!

    Ever think about all the food and body parts that touch those kitchen and bath surfaces? Well, I sure did. (And I sure as heck don’t want bleach or petroleum-based residue anywhere near my kids’ bottoms OR their sandwiches!) So I created a simple and effective, 100% natural, multi-surface cleaner and started experimenting with essential oils for scents. Long story short, Herbaceous Scentz Multi-Tasking Surface Cleaner was born—with several (consumer-tested) herbal scents designed to bring aromatherapy to your living spaces! I swear, you’ll be looking for things to clean—like the microwave and floors—just because! Our cleaner is just the first to come in our new Home Collection.

    With the addition of our Home Collection, we’ve broadened our scope of plant-based products. Our team of awesome designers and developers have worked hard to make it easy for you to learn, shop and enjoy more and more Mama Nature-based products for your skin, your home and your life!

    So, welcome to the new!

    We have more ideas under development. But really, this site is about YOU—and what you want. So drop us a line! Tell us what needle you’ve been looking for in the mainstream haystack of household products. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Wishing you goodness in life, always!
