Barb DeLosSantos creates decorative and purposeful soaps and bath products, decorated bath cupcakes. She uses natural ingredients with creative blends of colors, fragrances, select oils and rich exotic butters.
In 1998 when a health scare had her searching for less toxic products, her business was born. After a class at JCC on the beneficial uses of essentials oils, Barb began using them in her soaps. In 1999, a trip to Australia introduced her to the many uses of Melaleuca oil in natural products and that became the base essential oil for many balms. Barbs Homemade Soap And More offers products in local retail outlets and crates private label products to many gift shops and spas. Soap is the primary product in the Shea Love Me line, but there are 18 additional Bath and Body items. Barb is a certified Soapmaker and offers local classes.
