Our story starts like many others, a hobby turned into a craft, and that craft turned into a dream, and that dream became a business!
In 2012, Thomas and Jessica Kellaway were newlyweds. Jessica had just finished her nutrition degree and Thomas was working towards a career in criminal justice. To say they were broke is a complete understatement. Jessica always suffered from extremely sensitive skin. One day she decided to take a recipe that she had gotten from school to make a batch of hot process soap. She spent their last $20 on a whim to buy the supplies. When she finished her soap, she stumbled upon the answer to her skin problems. She sold 9 of her 10 bars she made.. and as time went on she formed a very small business serving the Flint, Michigan area.
You could find Jessica and Thomas at Autumn craft shows trying to sell her soaps, scrubs, and body butters. When Thomas joined the United States Navy, Jessica thought the business would be done for, little did she know that while he spent a year in school she would build the business up even more! After Thomas finished school, they moved to Norfolk, Virginia where they currently reside while Thomas finishes his time in the United States Navy.
Jessica makes the products & Thomas helps package and ship orders when he is home! In 2015, they welcomed their first son, Ezra & in 2017, they welcomed their second son, Bronn. They are a small, family run company happily providing chemical free skin care products to those who want and need them! We are happy you stumbled upon us!
