About the founders
When Nick met Julie, his future wife and business partner, in Thailand, both working in the European Commission on Human rights and Humanitarian affairs. After a year and a half spent in Bangkok, they moved to India, a place he knew pretty well as Nick had spent three years in Ladakh in the Himalayas getting a small fruit juice cooperative up and running.
It was while living in Delhi that they both discovered the magical soap berries, in a busy bazaar, learning that these berries had been used for centuries in the Himalayas for washing silk, hands and bodies.
They began work with a small Indian factory in Shimla, Andra Pradesh (India’s most environmentally conscious state) and then eventually made the first full production range in the foothills of the Himayalas. And after that they started their first production in UK.
