"Hamptons Hottie body care product is committed to producing a simple, pure, 100 percent organic, vegan and chemical-free line that is used from the neck down," shared Founder Karyn Mannix
. "Using the best hand pressed oils, Hamptons Hottie products help exfoliate, soften and refresh the body and mind, while leaving the skin with a warm glow to begin the day, for the night out, or simply to go to bed... and the exfoliating scrub may even help reduce the appearance of cellulite."
The line is produced in East Hampton and features a plethora of original scented scrubs and body toners including Lemon/Basil and a 'Chill Out' medley that will be in high demand during the holidays for its relaxing properties, as well as products specifically made for the feet and hands. "Hamptons Hottie is an organic product that gets the job done," Mannix noted.
"It's so great to have our community introduced to our local artisans in the 'off-season,'" Moran added.
