Sugar & Spice - Our Story

Sugar & Spice Bath and Bodycare is locally owned and operated in Maple Ridge. It was created by Crystal Winterton, an active mother of five that has called Maple Ridge home since birth. They are dedicated to creating affordable, luxurious personal care products that are good for you, your family and our environment.

Crystal's Inspiration

"When I was expecting our 5th child, my husband was diagnosed with cancer. We began looking for a culprit and turned to the most logical place. The kitchen. I quickly routed through everything with a preservative, artificial color or artificial flavor. Once that task was complete I turned my efforts to our bathroom. After a few short hours of looking up ingredients that we couldn't even pronounce, I threw out 98% of what we were using to get our family "clean".

With my husband going through treatment and me pregnant, money was tighter than ever. We needed soaps and other personal care products for our family but the natural ones were beyond our tight budget.

Not to be deterred, I got crafty in the kitchen and re-learned how to make bar soap. I had been taught by my grandmother when I was little but it was much easier to just buy it when my family began to grow.

Once I mastered soap making my curiosity got the best of me and I taught myself how to make the majority of our personal care products.

I was soon a regular vendor at the Haney Farmers Market, and the rest, shall we say is history, now we have products in many stores across Western Canada, and I am very proud of our healthy alternatives to bring into your homes and families"

Product recipes have been designed using only the finest quality food grade ingredients available. Most ingredients are purchased from local suppliers within 65 km of Maple Ridge, including the recyclable packaging. All imported ingredients are only ethically sourced, fair trade organic.

You can feel good about using any Sugar & Spice product, not only because of the ingredients that we do use, but because of the ones that we chose not to. You won’t find chemical based surfactants, animal by-products or petroleum based ingredients in anything we offer.

Welcome to Sugar & Spice, we hope you have a great experience on our website and we hope you will experience our healthy line of products in your home.

    1. Hi Jamie

      No they only have deodorants and some lotions. The bar soaps are available in our retail store and here on the website.

  3. Purchased the natural vanilla deodorant from a SaveOn Foods in Winnipeg and it is the best natural deodorant I have ever used!

  4. Thank you so much for making the most effective deodorant, I have ever used. and that it is made with natural ingredients is wonderful.

    I have tried several of the fragrances and the one i loved the most I cannot find anymore.
    It is a “man’s” called Coolwater (I think) came with a blue label. Please let me know if you make it again. Maybe I’ll just have to pop over to your location πŸ™‚ to check it out.
    Thanks again,

  5. I just wanted to say how much I love your products! I have purchased several different scents of your deoderant, as well as body lotions and they are all wonderful. My skin feels so soft from the lotion, which is not greasy, it’s very moisturizing! My favourite thing about your products is how they are made with great ingredients that are good for my body/skin, no harmful chemicals. Thank you for your work!
    From a loyal customer πŸ™‚

  6. I saw your Save-On Foods kiosk display in Abbotsford and bought a few different deodorants… the Rose is my favorite and I bought some for my Granddaughter who also loves it. Its Great knowing this is free from all the harsh chemicals and am confident in its performance! Looking forward to your future products! πŸ™‚

  7. I just discovered your deodorant in a little shop last week…… wow it is the best — 48 years old and I just found the best deodorant ever!!!!! Thank you for making a safe and high quality product! I am mailing some of to my mom in Nova Scotia tomorrow.

  8. HI! My husband and I were in Nelson this past sumer and found a display with your deodorants in the grocery store. I purchased the Creamsicle for myself, and the Black Tie for him. They smell good, they feel good and they last all day. We are hooked and I will have to try some of your other products!

  9. Loving the deodorant! So great to finally find a natural deodorant that WORKS, keeps me smelling great all day πŸ™‚

    Thanks for such a wonderful product, keep up the good work.

  10. I bought the rose deodorant last week and I am in love!!! I teach exercise classes and sweat alot. Most natural deodorants don’t work for me and I am always looking for one that does. I stopped using chemical antiperspirant over a year and a half ago. I have tried all kinds of natural deodorants, but I have to say this is my new fave!!!! Went to Save On today and bought 2 more in different smells and body lotions and shower gels. Can’t wait to try them! Thank you

  11. I have been using your Coconut Krush deoderant and it is AMAZING! I have tried numerous natural deoderants and yours by far exceeds any of them. It keeps me smelling fresh all day long! I am in love and cant wait to try some of your other products!!

  12. I came across your products at a Save On Foods the other day and I am all for natural products. Other natural deoterants I’ve tried have never held up throughout the day but the one I got, Japanese Cherry Blossom, oh my god! I love the smell and it lasts through the whole day! So impressed! Can’t wait to pick up more of your products!

  13. I came across a display of your products at Save on Foods in Calgary, AB. I never post reviews of products, but I just had to let you know how much I love the deoderant. Since I found out I was pregnant, the smell of the usual deodorants that I was using would make me want to thow up. But I couldn’t find a natural or unscented deodorant that actually worked, so I was stuck either being stinky, or feeling sick all day from the smell of my old deodorant. Your deoderant smells great, and actually works too! Thank you so much for such an awesome product. I will continue to use the deodorant for as long as I can purchase it. I love it!

  14. Love love love this deorderant, it’s the only natural one that actually works!! I’ve told all my friends, their really excited to try it!! My husband is giving the coconut a try after he smelled it and he is never one to try something new!!

  15. Wow! I am so thrilled with your rose and lavender deodorants. I have been trying to switch to a natural deodorant for years and have never found one that came close to working. This stuff keeps me fresh and dry all day and night its incredible. Keep up the amazing work. Love your stuff.

  16. I have been all over the city looking for a natural deodorant that I felt comfortable using after reading the scary facts about regular deodorants. Your products were recommended on social media so I had to give them a try. I finally found a local grocer that carried your products and ended up buying quite a few items, and hope to switch my whole family over. I am so happy to have found your natural products and hope that they will be available when I need to re-stock, love supporting local.

  17. I just have to say, the ladies here in Squamish are so in love with your coconut krush natural deodorant that we will actually post photos on Facebook when the local store that carries it is finally in stock again. Sells out in days! My youngest daughter and I just went to buy some sugar and spice deodorant for her very first one. Creamsicle of course! Thank you for giving us the gift of being able to find non chemical non gmo products. She could go her whole life without using chemical laden body care and it’s all because of dedicated people like you. Thank you!

  18. Thank you for making the best natural deodorant I’ve ever used. Normally they just don’t work for me and I’ve always had to go back to regular deodorant. I bought the plumeria one of your line and quickly went back for a vanilla. I’ve told all my friends about your products. Bravo! Any chance of making a baby powder smelling one? Thank you!

  19. A display of your products at Save On Foods caught my eye today, and it so happened that I needed deodorant. I did a double take when I saw it’s made in Maple Ridge! I love to support local, natural products and am so impressed with the deodorant. I can’t wait to try some of your other products!

  20. I stumbled across your keyosk in the mall today and I purchased some of your products. I have to say I am in love. The kiddies smelled so yummy after their bath, and I felt so good knowing that all the products are all natural. I would def reccomend! Can’t wait to buy more. Thank you

  21. Hi Crystal

    My wife and I have just come back from Canada and she purchased a Plumeria Natural Deodorant from your product range, she was so impressed that she has implored me to see if you would send them over to Australia or if you have a distributor here? We’d look at buying a few, if you can please let me what the best option is.

    Cheers

    Vas
