Hello! We are Anne Altor and Ed LaPlante of One Earth Body Care.
Introduction To Soap Making
One childhood summer in Pennsylvania, Anne’s mom initiated a back-porch science project – making soap in a big steaming cauldron with lard from the local butcher and lye from the hardware store. After much stirring, we shaped the magical mixture into lumpy balls of soap dyed with food coloring. Although there were no fancy essential oils to scent it or special fats to make it luxurious, this transformation of raw materials into an everyday product was vividly etched into memory…
A Passion For Ecology
Anne has been intrigued and enthralled with ecosystems and their creatures from a young age, and she followed this passion to earn a doctorate in Environmental Science. An early interest in natural health led her to essential oils and herbs, and to creating personalized potions and fragrances. These earthy pursuits were a great complement to working in consulting and academia over the years.
The Beginnings Of A Business
Around 2012, Anne cooked up a skin balm for rock climbers. This product became a hit as it helped heal and soothe dry and damaged skin (now you can find Skin Fix on our website). Anne also re-engaged with the magic of soap making and soon realized there was a need for sustainable body care products. She started blogging to share ideas about body care and ecology, and the momentum began to grow…
A Business Partner
By then, Ed LaPlante had stepped into the picture. Ed brings a strong background in entrepreneurship and business analysis, as well as an engineering mind to the partnership. In addition, Ed brims with enthusiasm for engaging with people and helping find solutions to their everyday challenges. One Earth Body Care LLC grew out of our desire to combine science, ecology, and natural health, and to help people understand the connections between self care and the health of the Earth.
One Earth Body Care exists to do good business by promoting natural health and improving the sustainability of body care. We carefully formulate our products to delight the senses, care for the skin, and respect the planet.
