About PIPER TATE

So our story begins like this: Bill used to be a chef. He wore clogs and a chef’s jacket, and went to work at 5am every morning to make chocolate profiteroles and things encased in spun sugar. I was a costume designer and styled everything from Barbie dolls to Luther Vandross.

Longing to combine our passions, and dreaming about creating a business with family in mind, we began stirring up organic, botanically infused body products for babies and their parents.

In creating all natural body products, we’re passionate about using local, sustainable and organic ingredients, whenever possible. Visiting a local bee farm, in search of wild harvested honey, is all part of the adventure.

Being mindful of our environmental responsibility is crucial, as is blending these beliefs with our business practices. We’re grateful everyday, for working as a family is one of the sweetest perks of running PIPER TATE.

Giving back....

Raising two young children, it’s important for us to model compassion and social awareness. Our goal at PIPER TATE is to create a business that can make a positive impact within its community.

PIPER TATE donates a portion of our profits to Divabetic (divabetic.org), a non-profit organization inspired by the late R &B legend Luther Vandross founded by his long-time assistant (and family friend of 23 years) Max Szadek. Divabetic introduces diabetes education with a “Glam More, Fear Less” philosophy, encouraging women affected by diabetes to view it and themselves in a new way.

Every year our family is honored to work Max’s fabulous and hip “Makeover Your Diabetes” outreach events. Check out our Facebook page for the latest photos!


Peace,

Valerie & Bill
