Renee Selby began her soap business in her home after learning the truth about what ingredients are put in commercial soaps and lotions. Selby's daughter developed asthma and was prescribed multiple medications at an early age. Her son was diagnosed with ADHD. Selby, as a mother, decided to dive into the world of the internet and find out what could be causing some of the ailments her children suffered and see what she could do to help. Through her research, she was astounded at the amount of chemical toxins her and her family were being exposed to by using some national brands of cleaners and personal products.
Selby decided to begin making her own soap. Her first batch was made out of coconut and olive oil. From there, she started experimenting with other products and providing samples to friends and family. After six months of using her own products, her children showed incredible improvements.
Her idea of purification gained popularity. Now, here small home business is exploding. She currently sells her products online and in boutiques around the Dayton area, such as American Pi in Dayton and Lebanon, Girlfriends Gifts in Waynesville, the Middletown Mall, and another boutique on Central Ave. in Middletown.
Selby has expanded her line of homemade and natural products from exclusively soaps to other products such as lotion bars, sugar scrubs, bath bombs, body lotions, soak and much more. One popular and fun product is her cupcake soap - too cute to use as regular soap but a perfect gift.
Selby's products prove to be fun and exciting while also being nutritional for the body and soul.
