Our Story
Made in wisconsin

Only the Best Ingredients

Our motto at Hippie Crap, is to make high quality handmade hair and skincare that does not cost a fortune. As you can imagine, it is quite the task. However, it is not too large for us! We promise to keep making high quality handmade hair and skincare while being environmentally conscious and giving back to the community.

We are a hippie family business based in Ashland, WI. Myself (Kristina St. Arnold) and my family make a great team in order to run Hippie Crap LLC. Even though we are available online, we do a lot of events in northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. For the big events, I recruit my family to help, which I am very fortunate to have. Along with that, I appreciate every order that is place by our customers. Your support is what keeps Hippie Crap going and our bills paid. And for that, I could never thank you guys enough! You simply are the best!

 

Our story begins a decade ago when I became curious about where our bath and beauty products were coming from and exactly what those big long ingredients really meant. If you have ever looked up the ingredients in your lotions, body washes, shampoos, and/or conditioners, then you are no stranger to the horrors that the internet provides on these ingredients. This research was a bit discouraging because not only are these ingredients in our everyday bath and beauty products harmful, but the good products cost a fortune! That was the turning point. I started making lotions, oils, dry shampoos, lip balms, scrubs, etc. I played with different recipes and blends before figuring out the perfect recipes for Hippie Crap. I have been making these products for a decade. In 2018, I decided to share them with the world by opening Hippie Crap LLC. So, here we are, using those crafted recipes mixed with environmentally friendly practices to create an affordable and healthy product for our customers!


 

Each product is handmade with careful attention to detail in order to make our customers happy and feel loved because let's be honest, we do care! There are no chemicals, preservatives, fillers, alcohols, mineral oil, parabens or artificial fragrances added to our products. All of our products are cruelty free. We also promote chemical free and little to no waste in our environment. Our containers are all BPA free and recyclable, shipping packages are recycled, and even the tissue paper and plastic wrap used to wrap the products are reused or eco-friendly, acid free and made from recycled materials.

 

 

To top it off, we donate a percentage of every sale to our local no-kill animal shelter! We also donate our time by reading to the cats every week.

 

 

 

We will do our best to make your experience with us the best one. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to contact us as we are always available to answer any questions you may have!
