My name is Razna Bibi, designer of natural handmade soaps. Combining my background in design with a passion for healthy living, I love to design beautiful bars of soaps that are wonderful on the skin and visually stunning.
I spend much of my time discovering lots of natural ingredients, as I believe using all natural ingredients means I have control of what I put into my body, and I see the amazing difference it makes for myself and my family every single day.
After much research and spending many hours in my kitchen designing small batches of soap, I have now perfected my recipes for wonderful bars of soaps (please see image). Using the cold process method, the soap bases are made with organic oils including a large percentage of olive oil, avocado oil and shea butter - it goes without saying these oils are so good for the skin. I scent the soaps using a wide range of pure essential oils, from rose geranium to orange to fennel. I also pack the soaps with the most amazing natural ingredients including dried fruit, clays and botanicals.
My vision is to continue making small batches of soaps in order to ensure the quality is consistent, and to make the product available for others to benefit from as I have done. Using the funding I would like to make the soaps available both online and in small shops that really appreciate the product. The funding will help to create suitable packaging for the soaps, cover the cost of creating a website, help with the initial cost of renting spaces in small shops and for marketing the product.
As a mum of two young children, whilst this business will allow me the opportunity to work for myself and look after my children, it would equally be an amazing opportunity to bring a product to the market that will help people to take back control of what they put into their body and help look after their skin. What makes me really smile is when my customers tell me my soaps make a real difference for their skin. People often comment on how gentle but cleansing the soaps are, how beautifully they lather, how much they love the aromas of my essential oil blends, and not to mention how often I get told the soaps look too good to use.
