Brooklyn, NY, May 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Featured in this week’s Time Out NY Shopping Section, Metropolis Soap Co. (www.metropolissoap.com) is creating a stir with the eco-conscious shoppers looking for a natural alternative to detergent-based soap.
“We've received an overwhelming response from so many different customers. It's great to see so many people embracing natural alternatives,” says owner, Megan Brame-Finkelstein.
What really sets Metropolis Soap Co. apart, though, is their original pulp-comic aesthetic. Their brand includes soaps with names like “The Spicy Citrus Gang,” “One Night with Rosemary Mint,” and “The Lady Likes It... Unscented.” The soaps and packaging all contain bright colors and lush fragrances made from essential oils. Metropolis has been seen at local art shows around the city, as well as comicons! “We wanted to showcase our brand and couldn't think of a better way to do it then at a comicon!” says Brame-Finkelstein. “It was amusing to watch people literally stop in their tracks and try to comprehend soap at a comicon, but it sold really well!” The brand also features muscle rubs, lip balms, and perfume oils.
Though she won’t name names, Ms. Brame-Finkelstein has admitted that a few celebrities have been big helps about getting the word out about Metropolis. “We've been very lucky to have attracted the clientele we've received, both famous and not. The appeal about Metropolis is that it is both fun and luxurious at the same time, so it really suits a broad range of customers.”
The line is sold in select boutiques around the country but is available online at www.metropolissoap.com.
Metropolis has plans to continue and expand their presence in the market through their constant touring of art and trade shows across the country. Brame-Finkelstein explains “We're definitely road dogs, I'm usually out at a show every weekend but I love doing it. I love meeting customers face-to-face and putting a person behind the brand.”
