Young entrepreneur Payge Creasy is a 12 year old with a passion for self-care, and she is on a roll! Her business, Payge’s Paradise, located in Peterborough began last April and has really taken off. Payge was motivated to start her own business after helping in her Aunt’s business, and after speaking with her Mom – took the step to create her own legacy, and she is focussed on making it grow.
Payge makes handmade, chemical free bath products like: Body Butter, Body Scrub, Shower Steamer, Bath Salts and Candles. Her top recommended products are her Body Butters which works amazingly on burns, and sunburns healing them quickly; and the Body Scrub – another popular product that Payge says helps to prevent wrinkles, the scrub contains orange peel powder which introduces much needed vitamin C into your body and skin. This gal has really done her research and knows loads about the ingredients she uses in all her products.
Payge makes all of her products by hand right in her own home, melting butters and oils to make chemical and fragrance-free products, which Payge says is important because using chemicals can cause damage and harm to the skin.
Payge’s recent accomplishments include having Basket Express take her products to offer in their baskets, and Harley Farms will be stocking her products both in-store and online. Payge is also a member of the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, and is working on her website.
When I asked Payge why she loves making these products she said, “I love to make people happy, feel special and welcome! I am caring, and make sure that every customer I have finds especially what they are looking for.”
To order any of Payge’s products you can find her business on Facebook where she has an online store – or find her at many local handmade markets throughout the year.
