After spending 14 years in Berkeley, Grateful Body founder Shannon Schroter is relocating his holistic skin care business to Nevada City.

The company is inviting customers to visit the new facility at 431 Uren St., from 5-8 p.m. Friday, during Nevada City’s First Friday Artwalk.

The open house is an opportunity for locals to take a behind-the-scenes look at where and how the artisan products are made; the business doesn’t have a retail storefront built into the facility, and instead sells its vegan, non-GMO, gluten-and-cruelty-free cleansers, moisturizers, toners and other products online at gratefulbody.com.

During the open house, Schroter will discuss his experience and approach to creating skin care products.

There will also be a raffle for a personalized selection of skin care products, valued at $140, and a 20 percent discount on products.

Schroter, who has studied traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, Tibetan and Western herbal medicine systems, began creating healing recipes in the early 1980s; he later founded Middle Path Herbals in Seattle in 1984 before opening Grateful Body in the Bay Area in 1998.
