Products Review: Mom’s Stuff

By Greta Belanger deJong

We don’t usually write product reviews, but here is something I seriously appreciate: Mom’s Stuff,
made in Spring City, Utah by artist Lee Bennion (her work has appeared on CATALYST covers several times) and her three daughters.

Lee calls it superfood for the skin, and I’ll vouch
for that. I was introduced to her original all-purpose piñon salve about 20 years ago by a river runner who swore by it, and I’ve used it ever since on my garden girl hands. Her two new products—a protective day face balm and a nourishing night face balm—are fragrant
and calming; I enjoy the way they feel as they help me stand up to age and climate.

Her handmade products are organic and highly concentrated so the small containers last a long
time; only a fingernail’s worth of balm is needed, morning and night.

I write about this now because Lee and her daughters will be at Craft Lake City this month (August 11-13, Gallivan Center). If you go, please visit Lee and check out her product.

(Price range: $1-132.)
