Meet LaShanda McPeters of Lather and More in North

Today we’d like to introduce you to LaShanda McPeters.

Thanks for sharing your story with us LaShanda. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started making natural soaps in 2015. I am a self-taught soap maker turned entrepreneur.

First it was just a hobby then when I saw that my eczema started to clear up, I thought to myself, I finally found out what works for my skin. After many trials and errors, I launched Lather and More in 2016.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road. When I started my company, I lost the relationship with my older sister. She lived in California and was already making soaps. I helped her with her business and when I told her that I too were going to start my soap business in Houston TX, she disowned me. It was hard because I thought I would have the same support I had given her but that unfortunately was not the case.

I was hurt at first but I used that hurt to help motivate me to keep going and to pursue my company.

Please tell us about Lather and More.
I am the owner and founder of Lather and More natural handcrafted products. I make and sell natural soaps, aluminum-free and baking soda free natural deodorants, body butters, eczema balm, bath bombs, body oil.

I specialize in aluminum-free deodorants, eczema balm and natural soaps.

I am most proud of being known in the city of Houston as the go-to company for natural deodorants and soaps.

What sets us apart is the fact that we would rather educate potential customers before making a sell. We are the only black-owned bath and body company in Houston, TX that accepts bitcoin.

That is also another thing that separates us from other bath and body companies. People can pay for their products in cryptocurrency besides cash or card.

We care about what goes on our customer’s skin and we provide round the clock customer service.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Going to church with my grandmother and coming home to play with my favorite barbies lol.
