I am Precious Renee Owens a certified cosmetologist and the heart and hands behind Simply Sabuni and my story is not unlike other soap makers. Quite simply, my son was suffering terribly with bad eczema and no mother likes to see their child with cracked dry skin that hurts to the touch. So I did what any parent would do I started searching for a solution. I quickly realized no matter what the doctors would give him it wasn’t going to work. So I decided to go in the opposite direction from all the chemicals the doctor was giving him. My first bar of soap was born out of love for the purpose of healing my son’s skin.
Once I realized his skin was getting better, I continued making soap for him to use all the time. I saw how using the soap had helped him and decided I would use it as well. It wasn’t long before my best friend called me about an allergic reaction on her hands and asked me if I would make her a bar of “THAT” soap. That loaf of soap I made for her was full of simple calming ingredients without any added scented oils. I remember the day she called me and said “my skin is clearing up and I’m going to need a few loaves of “THAT” soap. As a matter of fact, I have a few friends who want to try your soap as well.” I had helped to soothe and calm her skin and was more than happy to help her friends.
Because of my son and my best friend that is how Simply Sabuni was born. I realized my son and my best friend were not the only ones with skin problems and began asking my friends and co-workers if they had any skin issues. One loaf of pure, simple soap to heal my loved ones turned into loaves and loaves of organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, goat’s milk, green tea, honey, tea tree oil, fresh herbs and so many other wonderful natural ingredients. Whether you decide to use our products on your body or you’re simply buying them as a gift, you can be certain you’re getting quality handmade soap. Each of my unique richly scented products are made in small batches to ensure the highest of standards and quality. My goal at Simply Sabuni is to go beyond just basic soaps and into making sublime healing luxury bars.
Sabuni is Swahili for soap.
