    Hi Lydia!!

    I am greatly intrigued by your Kanshi line and have been dreaming about launching something similar here in the Dominican Republic. My dreams are much smaller however. We have a non profit organization called Eco Spa Treats and the idea is to use products that are available locally and provide jobs, opportunity and income to the locals by marketing their products in our local spas. The DR lives off tourism and to have a line of quality Bath and Body products that could be available in gift shops, online and in our local Resort Spas would be an amazing opportunity for us. We wish to donate 100% of the profits of the line to the foundation to keep it growing and expanding product lines and assisting with our Micro Credits program for the Agricultural Producers for the products used in the Bath and Body Products. Is there anyone in your company who might be interested in mentoring us in this effort? Basically how to get started and how to create a quality product with a shelf life? I look forward to your response. Thank you so much for your time!! – Tracey

      Hi Christine,

      Thank you for reaching out. As of now, Kanshi is discontinued as customer service advised. We have a few select items still available – very, very limited stock. If you let us know exactly what products you are looking for, we can check our inventory to see if they are available.
