FORT COLLINS — Salus Bath and Body, a manufacturer and retailer of soaps and skin-care products, has tripled its manufacturing space in Fort Collins.
Salus, led by chief executive Elissa Klaver, has signed a five-year lease for 7,300 square feet at 1418 Magnolia St., in Fort Collins to keep up with the demand for its customized products, including bath bombs — a blend of fragrance and skin moisturizers that when dropped in bath water swirl, fizz and release colors.
“Due to the growing demand of our products, we are expanding our warehouse operations to help us meet our first phase manufacturing expansion goal of over 10 million bath bombs,” Klaver said in a prepared statement.
The company’s non-scented bath and body products can be customized by the consumer, choosing from a variety of fragrances and essential oils.
Klaver and her husband, Jerrell Klaver, opened their first retail store 10 years ago. The company has grown to more than 45 employees, with three retail stores in Colorado, specializing in custom natural and organic bath and body-care products, bath bombs and organic soaps.
Salus’ retail store in Fort Collins is at 240 Walnut St., between Happy Lucky’s Teahouse and Curiosities. Its two other retail shops are in Manitou Springs and Highlands Ranch. The company also sells its products wholesale to retailers across the country.
