How We Began
Nature’s Bar Co was birthed out of a desire to produce a natural skincare range free from the numerous harsh chemicals present in skincare products and educate friends and family on the adverse effects these chemicals have on us and our children.
The journey began in 2014 when I had a strong desire to start a business and do something more interesting and creative than my regular 9-5 day job. In my ‘prior lives’ I was an accountant, banker, earned a master’s degree in International Business Management and later, financial and capacity development manager for an international organization in the non-profit sector.
Fueled by the burning desire to own a business, I began to read as many books as possible relating to business and becoming an entrepreneur. As God would have it, while on a holiday trip in Dubai , I stumbled across a beautifully packaged soap that smelled so good I couldn’t resist buying one, I mean two. Can you believe that I haven’t used those bars till date? Upon reaching my hotel apartment, I began to carry out a research about the soap and thus I was introduced to the world of natural handcrafted soaps and essential oils. This research gave birth to a business as that very night (I didn’t sleep till the wee hours of the morning) Nature’s Bar was born.
I was back at the mall the next day to visit Neal’s Yard Remedies and purchase as much essential oils as I could afford. Upon my return home, I purchased the basic tools of the trade, some oils and finally in March 2015, after long hours of research and note taking, the first batch of soap was made – 12 bars of Lavender and Oatmeal Soap. The bars turned out well and the reviews from my family members was encouraging.
In summer of 2015, I took a course on cold processed soap making at the Little Soap School and the rest, as they say, is history. Thanks to our loyal customers, family and friends, the business has grown so fast. We have set up a store in Jabi, Abuja and talks are in place to make our products available in Lagos. We are continuously expanding into a full line of natural skin and hair care products. We are shipping to every state in Nigeria and our products have gone as far as London, Malaysia and Texas.
Meet Our Family
I may have created the business, but Nature’s Bar Co would not be where it is today without the Nature’s Bar Family. We are a family that shares a common trait – we are passionate about what we do. Our kitchen and store is full of laughter and creative energy that inspires and motivates. We share ideas, we share a vision and mission and we are content with the knowledge that we are making a difference in our own little way.
We are a small business and we accomplish all we do with a small, dedicated and passionate team.
