Our Story

If I could describe the year 2020 in one word, it would be reset. 

Back in 2012, RPB launched with two products after several years of making skin care for my son with special needs. All the challenges in those years immediately following his birth forced me to reimagine my life. "What next?" was a common theme in those early years.

As a family, we were forced to pivot, adapt, innovate and create a new normal. If this sounds familiar, you are not alone.

The year 2020 was all of that and more. It was a year to hit the reset button in life and for RPB.

Plan B's aren't easy. Most are hard. But what I've learned over the last couple of years and more so in the past several months is that in all that planning for the "what if's", we had forgotten about the here and now.

Our hope is that you are able to steal away moments of self care during these times of uncertainty, increased stress and continuous change. Our beautiful aromas and textures were inspired by happy memories. The multi benefit products allow you to care for your and your loved one's skin with ease because we still believe that there is beauty in simplicity.

Now more than ever, self care is healthcare. When we take better care of ourselves, we are better able to care for others. 

We've hit the reset button and invite you to (re)discover RPB and stay awhile. We're so happy that you are here!

Can happiness be bottled up? We think so.

  • We create skin care with familiar aromas and beautiful textures that are inspired by happy memories. 

  • Our formulations often start as a vision of what we want the product to smell and feel like on your skin.

  • We strive to listen more and continuously improve the customer experience.

We're on a mission to help you and your loved ones embrace a skin care routine that brings happiness, encourages you to take time out for self care and helps bring you back to what matters. When we take better care of ourselves, we are better able to care for others.

  • We do not test on animals, only willing humans.

  • Our product formulas are free of artificial fragrance. They also happen to be gluten and palm oil free.

  • We will always list the entire ingredient label for our products on our website so that you can make an informed choice before you purchase our products. Some ingredient lists may include the word fragrance*. We occasionally use this word to keep some of our scent blends a secret or save space on a label. If you ever have any questions about a specific product, please contact us. We are here to help.

  • We believe that less is more.

  • Lastly, we promise to never stop learning.
