Meet the Maker

Hi, my name is Ala and I am owner and creator of SANOlifestyle soaps.
My journey with soap making has started a few years ago when I was very ill. We have serious eczema cases in my family. My skin is prone to atopic dermatitis as it is extra sensitive and very dry. A few years ago, I was battling super acute nummular eczema and I was struggling to find anything to soothe itch, dryness and discomfort on my skin. It was nightmare... I have started to use more and more extra virgin avocado and olive oils on my skin straight from bottles - after a few weeks...bliss...some relieve, skin started to feel softer and calmer. That was a trigger to find out how to use these wonderful oils in my beauty routine...
Initially I was making tiny soap batches just for myself and around a couple years ago, I made my first range of rustic soaps for sale to support local Whangarei community group fundraiser...and this is how its all started. Plus, I haven't had eczema back since...
