Tell us about you - the creator!

I'm a mom of 3 with #4 on the way in July. I'm a former Montessori Directress. My degree is in Child development and have worked with kids my entire adult life before becoming a stay at home mom. I started Sudzy Bums about a year and a half ago although I've been making my products for home use and friends for much longer. I love working with soaps and I especially enjoy the fact that my customers enjoy my products as much as I do making them.

Describe your shop and what you sell

I make a variety of soaps; liquid soaps, hot process, cold process, novelty soaps and bath art. I also make a variety of Baby care products that aren't soap such as my Baby Bummy stick, diaper pail deodorizers, and a nipple salve for nursing moms. Since I have always cloth diapered, I offer a lot of cloth diaper safe products. My Cloth wipe solution for example is one of my biggest sellers. All of my products have been volunteer tested and never tested on animals. In fact, all of my products are vegan and free of most common allergens.

What is your favorite item to make? Why?

I like to make the toy imbed soaps. They take a bit more time but they are just so stinkin' cute. I love them and my customers do too.

How and when did you start your business?

I started by business about a year and a half ago soon our move out of State. I first started out with the cloth wipe solution and diaper pail deodorizers which I had been making the longest time. I added the novelty soaps soon afterwards and now have a vast variety of soap molds. I most recently added more adult friendly and family soaps.

Anything else you would like to add?

I plan on adding a hard lotion stick and working on a big bubble body wash.
