How ScrubzBody™ Skin Care Products Got Started

ScrubzBody Makes Simple, Natural Skincare Using Simple, Natural Ingredients.

We did this for us originally. Now we do this for you. Well, I guess it’s for us too, because we do so LOVE our ScrubzBody showers! 🙂


How we got started

I was a working mom of 3, with skin so dry it would bleed sometimes when I scratched it. I was frustrated that the products I was finding were not delivering on their promises. I literally felt like Goldilocks as I tried jar after jar from inexpensive to “what are they kidding me” prices. They were either filled with artificial preservatives and/or colors, didn’t quite do what they promised, or the scents were not making me feel special and pampered. My husband commented on my collection of jars building up on the bathroom shelf.

I was finally fed up and frustrated so I decided to make my own, acting like a mad chemist in the kitchen as I stirred and whipped. Then I did extensive research on botanical oils and their benefits for the skin. I began mixing up various formulations of the scrubs, staying with sugar, after having one major “owww” moment when a salt-based version got into a paper cut. I wondered how this could ever feel good on faces or other more private parts. I was lazy and wanted to use one product from head to toe.

I tested each and every batch myself and on my beautiful late sister, Michelle Tucker.

One day, Michelle comes bursting into the room announcing, “OMG, we have to sell this stuff…it’s seriously amazing!” We knew others suffered from dry, itchy skin too. 2 days later, Michelle called me and announced she had the perfect name, so on June 26, 2006, ScrubzBody Skin Care Products was born. The ScrubzBody line expanded to include other simple, feel-good products.

With Michelle’s passing in Feb of 2017, the commitment to serving you all is even stronger, because we get to share Michelle’s love and creativity in every jar, bottle, and party!
