Belize is known for many wonderful things and we travelled to San Ignacio in the Cayo District of Belize to find a home based operation that has made ripples in the natural healing, skin beauty, skin health and skin care product world. We would like to introduce you to a soap that we have tried and tested and are happy to report that we do not think we will use any other soap other than the "Rubba Dub Soap". After using this soap we felt relaxed, refreshed and clean.
Rubba Dub Soap Company in Belize was founded in 1998 by a local Belizean entrepreneur, Lidie Allen, who has made this family operation and home based business a nationwide phenomenon. Rubba Dub Soap Company is now exporting their all natural hand made soaps internationally to resorts and individuals who enjoy their natural healing abilities. When asked why she created the company to create all natural soaps she will be glad to tell you that she has met many people who have battled skin conditions like herself. In trying to cure her skin condition and help other people she was keen on creating an all natural soap with all Belize's natural products that had healing qualities. Lidie's husband, Edward Allen, urged her to create the first soaps and helped her to procure the natural ingredients that were necessary. She gave the soaps as gifts to people and finding that the soaps not only helped her with her skin condition but also helped other people, she decided to make it on a larger scale so that others may enjoy their healing abilities. Today during the week you can find Lidie Allen with her sisters Iliana Moreno and Gloria Fearnow busy at work emulsifying oils and creating these one of a kind healing soaps at their home base in the hills of the Cahal Pech area of San Ignacio Town. How fitting it is that the Mayas were the first to use natural ingredients with healing properties.
Rubba Dub Soap Company's handmade/handcrafted natural healing and beauty soaps are specially formulated to deliver the very best in skin care while using 100% safe and truly natural ingredients that are carefully chosen for their many benefits to include moisturizing, cleansing and soothing capabilities. Some of those ingredients include Cohune, Coconut and Olive oils as well as other essential oils, fragrance oils, herbs, spices and other natural ingredients which remain a secret for infringement purposes. Rubba Dub Soaps make all of their handmade soaps in small batches to ensure the quality of each batch. They hand stir, hand cut and hand wrap every bar. They even make their own wrappers. Every bar of soap is given a long cure period so that when it is finally cured the bar is mild and ready to use. What is amazing is that Rubba Dub ensures that all their soaps remain all natural not using any harmful synthetic chemicals, animal by-product/animal fat, artificial dyes, preservatives, synthetic fragrance oils or detergents.
Many entrepreneurial soap companies in Belize have gone to leaps and bounds to try and copy their secret ingredients but none have come close to matching it. Many of these companies use a natural base but still add synthetic ingredients while still calling it a 'natural' soap. Most commercial soaps on the market today are harsh, dry out and irritate your skin with prolonged use and nearly all skin and body care products are laden with synthetic chemicals we would all be better off not putting on our skin every day.
