It all began with an allergy.
I first turned towards natural skin care and soap-making because of allergies and skin issues that’d get aggravated every time I used products with synthetic and chemical ingredients.
Finding genuine natural products isn’t easy.
Even though most products are labelled “natural,” they contain synthetic fragrances, preservatives, colorants… the list goes on. That’s when I decided to take things in my own hands and got down to making soap.
My first soap ever!
This was an olive + oil soap, also known as a Bastille soap. I got it bang on! This beautiful, mild, and creamy soap suited me very well and thus began my love affair with natural skincare.
Research It took a lot of research (yes a Lot and then a whole lot more) to even begin, talking to and learning from experienced soap makers, and studying the techniques of soap-making, natural healing and benefits of various oils and botanicals.
My soaps were initially meant only for friends and family, but then I began receiving a whole lot of enquiries from other people too. That’s when I realized that there were many others who, like me, were struggling to take care of their sensitive skin and were looking for an effective, honest, and truly natural skincare solution.
This got me to experimenting. It took scores of trials―some of which were successful, others were total disasters. I developed various shampoo bars, masks, body butters and other products which helped calm my skin condition greatly.
After a lot of deliberation and learning more about the nitty-gritties of soap-making, I launched Burst Of Happyness in 2012. We started with a limited range of soaps but now our product range includes more than 40 skin loving goodies, including lip balms, deodorant cream, scrubs and more are being added seasonally.
