My Story

Over a decade ago, I got a wake up call, I was overweight and unhappy. I didn’t know what to do, but I knew I was going to do something. Luckily, later that Spring, I visited a local farmers market. While I was there I happened to make friends with some of the farmers and vendors. It was really fun and I learned a lot about natural living and made some life long friends. Eating more fresh, local produce was the one of the easiest steps I took in leading a more healthy lifestyle. I quickly realized that I could make even bigger changes if I wanted to.

So, I decided to leave my job as a Lead Vet Tech, a job that I loved, but just wasn’t right for me anymore. I started hiking in the mornings and doing yoga at night. My diet became absolutely gluten-free. I would use organic, fragrance oil free personal products and eco-safe cleaning products. I’ll admit, it was very difficult in the beginning. But, as a few weeks turned into a few months, the exercising got easier, my stress levels were way down, and my skin looked amazing!

The “healing” seemed to happen incredibly fast, my body changed drastically, and I actually transformed into a new person. I felt so good, that I wanted to share some of the natural “hacks” I had learned to inspire others. At the time, I was really into making natural soap; soaps with a specific purposes, like ones for shaving, acne, and sensitive skin.

At the beginning of that Summer, my mother-in-law got very badly sunburned on the first day of her long awaited beach vacation. She was devastated, her trip was all but ruined. She asked me, “why did showering make my sunburn feel worse? Wasn’t bathing supposed to help?” I explained that showering in hot water can make sunburn worse, using highly fragranced body washes and even using a loofah can exacerbate sunburn. Remember, you absorb the water and products you use when you bathe.

Then it hit me, an all natural soap that could ease away your sunburn. Why wasn’t something like this on the market already? Why, because the internet had deemed it an impossibility. The ingredients needed for such a soap inherently make the bar turn to goop after the first use. So, for years and years I researched, I experimented, and I discovered a secret science of sunburn.

Back then, I would actually get sunburned on purpose, just to test out new prototypes. I didn’t care if the soap was colorful or swirly, it just had to smell great and do what it was designed to do. And, after tweaking hundreds of recipes, scent combinations, ingredients, and techniques. I finally perfected the The Original Sunburn Soap, an organic soap bar that can literally “wash away” your sunburn! So, you can get back outside and have some fun!

Happy Adventures!
