I am Danielle Paluska, the face and formulator here at Wild Comfort Body Care.
After a career in mental health, I made the decision to pour my skills into my own life. The results were Wild Comfort.
This journey has been a very good one. I now get to spend my days immersed in creativity.
That first bar of soap was a simple one. I gave it to my mom and a few other family members for Mother’s Day. Their appreciation for it inspired me to begin researching, experimenting and learning. I started reading labels and discovering ways to make skincare products with natural ingredients. One by one I replaced our regular skin and hair care products with my own formulations, many of those are still a part of the Wild Comfort line of products.
Wild Comfort Body Care was launched in October 2014. Using natural ingredients, I handcraft soap, moisturizers, deodorant and many other skin and hair care products.
I love experimenting and developing a formulation that is natural and performs well. It takes a significant amount of trial and error and it is part of the creative process. I am happy with a formulation when it does what it is intended to do as good or better than what is currently on the market. Customer feedback is an important part of product creation. Each product is tested by a selection of potential customers before taking a product to market. Because of this it can take up to a year to take a product from concept to being for sale.
I love the connections I make with people through Wild Comfort products. Whether it is face to face at our shop, at local markets or online, I love to hear people’s stories, encourage them, and serve their needs. In many ways it is juxtaposed to my former career in mental health, but I have discovered the rewards are very similar.
You are welcome you to come visit. It is my hope that as you get to know me through Wild Comfort products or a visit in person, you are inspired to experience your own wild comfort journey, a journey defined by solace and just a bit of the unexpected.
