Who is Truzzi's?
Truzzi’s Bath and Body was started in 2009 by Terri Petruzzi out of a desire to combine her love of science with her love of using what God has given us in creation. Truzzi's was the natural result. Terri originally started using the milk from her goats to make soap for family and friends, but her soaps and lotions were in such high demand that everyone urged her to make a business out of it. Not entirely new to the idea of starting a business, she jumped at the chance -- but with one caveat: this would be a family thing!
With the help of Steve, her husband, Terri's brother Mike built a large workshop in the over-sized basement of their home. Now Terri does most of the soap and lotion making with her oldest daughter, Brittany. Her youngest daughter Rachael helps with the design & photography side, her son Chris and daughter-in-law Amanda are her best team of testers, and her grandkids are always around to lend a helping hand (or just some encouraging smiles!). You can even find Arlene, Terri's mother, doing what she loves best: making friends with everyone in the Piedmont Triad while she run’s the Truzzi’s booth at the Farmer's Market in Colfax, NC. Terri is so thankful for the success of Truzzi's and, Lord willing, will have many years of success ahead!
A note from Terri:
I feel so blessed by your interest and appreciation of our Truzzi's products! Truzzi's number one priority is creating quality artisan soaps, fine skin care products, and botanical products. In everything from the wholesome milk from our American Alpine dairy goat herd to the wool from our naturally raised livestock, we endeavor to not waste any resources gathered from our homestead farm (Thousand Hills Farm), located in North Carolina’s Piedmont.
I know you will be pleased with the soothing goat's milk, local wild harvested honey, essential oils, and healing botanicals at the heart of our products! All of our products are made from scratch using only the highest quality, hand-picked ingredients — without a melt-and-pour or pre-made base in sight — to make beautifully balanced products to nourish and protect your skin.
Once you try our lovely bath and body products, we think you’ll agree that nothing beats "Clean - Fresh - Handmade!"
