Birch Babe does it again! This year, Birch Babe Naturals’ Shampoo Bar is a Finalist for the 5th Clean Beauty Awards, hosted by CertClean!

What inspired you to create safer skincare products?
I have always been a huge advocate of being natural, it just became more important over time.I currently have a toxic free lifestyle, I know everything that goes on or in my body, I make it all. It has become a bit of an obsession with me and now our loyal customers.
What were some roadblocks/issues that you have faced? How did you conquer these issues?
We realized early that certain markets were not appropriate, such as fairs and general festivals. Our audience is better reached at Vegan and Green Living functions. The customer understands our mission and appreciates our products.
Your shampoo bar is amongst the best HairWash products in the industry! Tell us more about this product!
Our shampoo bar is one of our first products and we are very proud of them. They have no sulfates, yet there is a great lather naturally. They last a very long time, and great for travel too. There is a nice tin that fits perfectly for it. Again, no plastic!
What are your favourite ingredients and why?
My personal favourite is Rosehip butter, it is so luxurious. We put it in all our facial products, lips and body butters.
We absolutely love the ethos of your company. Can you tell us more?
We are adamant to use the highest quality essential oils and carrier oils, all certified natural, many are organic. Our products are also proudly certified by CertClean.
We will be starting a separate line this spring that is totally Organic and 100% plastic-free.
Thank you Debbie for sharing your story and creating vegan, plastic-free, natural and clean beauty products!
