Maine-Made Pleasant River Soap Selected for “Good Morning America” Gift Guide Promotion

Windham -

Portland, Maine — December 8, 2011 — Good Morning America officially launched its 2011 holiday gift “Secret Deals and Steals” this morning at 8:20 a.m., and Mary Phipps, owner and creator of Maine-based Pleasant River Soap (www.pleasantriversoap.com), announced that her bag and balm sets, a stocking-stuffer-perfect duo with one bar of the artisan soap and one coordinating lip balm, were selected for inclusion in this year’s highly anticipated gift guide online promotion. The Bar and Balm sets, available in Cooling Peppermint, Lime, Orange Grapefruit, and Lemongrass, normally retail for $7.50 but are offered on the exclusive Good Morning America gift guide site (http://gma.yahoo.com/december-daily-deals–exclusive-discounts-on-gifts-for-everyone-on-your-shopping-list.html) for 50 percent off and free shipping with the special GMA code at checkout. The online promotion (http://www.pleasantriversoap.com/collections/gma) will be available through Friday, December 9, at midnight.

According to coordinators, more than 20,000 savvy shoppers are likely to visit Pleasant River’s GMA-specific site over the next 24-48 hours.

“What an honor to attract the interest of a high profile, national outlet like Good Morning America,” said Phipps. “I’m thrilled to be a part of the online promotion and hope to represent well all the outstanding products that are made in Maine.”

The sets, along with Phipps’ entire line of exceptional, all-natural soaps and lip balms, are handcrafted in small batches along the Pleasant River in Maine. Made only with essential oils and the very best ingredients (no artificial fragrances, colors or preservatives), this unique line includes tempting fragrances such as Orange Cinnamon, Rosemary Lime, Almond Lavender, Fennel Poppy and more. The Maine Woods and Bay Rum scents are especially appealing to men. An added bonus: the products are vegan, an increasingly important quality for today’s environmentally conscientious shoppers.
