About BaburuAndBlake

Sales 610
On Etsy since 2019

Hello everyone!

My name is Angela and I am the creator of "Baburu & Blake". This little dream started in the summer of 2018 inspired by my passion for herbalism, natural cruelty-free skincare products and my concerns about the amount of plastic that is produced and thrown away in our planet on a daily basis. The result are these handmade, natural and vegan soap bars handcrafted with ingredients found in nature and scented exclusively with essential oils. They have also been certified as safe to use by a cosmetic assessor.

The soaps are made using the “Cold Process” method, so they spend about 4-6 weeks curing on drying racks until they are ready to use. I also use a process called over-fatting, which allows to keep free oils and the naturally occurring glycerine in the soap. One of the main ingredients included is mango butter, chosen for its high levels of unsaponifiables, which means it is very good and nourishing for the skin.

All of the soaps are made in small batches and wrapped by hand using recycled paper. All the packaging I use is entirely recyclable, even the packing chips I put inside some boxes are 100% biodegradable and fully compostable. They are NOT PLASTIC; they are made from 100% non-genetically modified corn starch.

I include a little sample with every order as long as stock lasts.

If you would like to know more about me and my little business you can follow me on Instagram under my business name for more information, behind the scenes or shop updates.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
