Tell us about your business.

Our business was born from the very basic supply & demand premise. Looking to purchase a luxurious yet durable puff we found none on the market that seemed to fit the bill. Not wanting to settle for some traditional puff that are commonplace, Cindy had the idea of using re-purposed mink fur. We were able to fashion just what we were looking for. Our puffs provide that sensual feel that only mink can provide as well as being durable & beautiful. All our puffs are made one at a time by hand from previously own "outdated" styles or damaged mink garments. Puffs are the same approx round shape & size with pink ribbon. Mink colors very due to availability. Our branding will establish PJ and CJ Soft Touch as the premier place to purchase genuine fur powder puffs and lightly scented dusting powder. Our product line will be presented with an exclusive design style that will enable us to market to not only online storefronts, but potentially various high-end retailers as well.

What makes your business stand out?

Re-purposing mink is unique for making dusting powder puffs. It’s a win win for the consumer to be able to have the look & feel of genuine fur & the knowledge that it’s environmentally friendly.

What's the best business advice you've received?

“Love what you do but always have a reliable accountant & attorney.” With this advice we see two organs of the human spirit are needed to run a business, the heart & brain. Finding the right balance between the emotional heart & logical mind may mean seeking prudent professional advice from others with more experience in their fields of expertise. Wisdom of experience is always good for business. Passion is what motivated us to create our products & it’s just logical that our customers will love it too.
