Open Sesame- The Grand opening for Batty's Bath

There's a brand new handmade bath and body shop in town! Batty's Bath officially opened online this week and the shop owner and soap maker behind Batty's Bath, Jamie Sabot (who's also the paper artist behind "She's Batty Designs"), was please with the overwhelming support not only from the only community, but also from the local community.

So what exactly is Batty's Bath? Well, Batty's Bath is a small soap and bath products company specializing in handmade cleansers, moisturizers, lip balms, scrubs and hair care products to make you feel totally pampered. Batty's Bath uses only the freshest, highest quality ingredients and makes all products in small batches to ensure the best quality possible. Batty's Bath also ensures that all products are cruelty-free and none have ever been tested on animals. Additionally, Batty's Bath holds very high ethical standards when it comes to quality, the environment, and social impact. This can be seen in the eco-friendly, reusable packaging, recycling program, commitment to charity, and the use of "Fair Trade Compliant” ingredients. Batty’s Bath sources out ethical suppliers, meaning that the ingredients they supply are “Fair Trade Complaint”. This means that the profits go back to the community, that environmentally friendly production methods are used, and that forced labor is not used. This is particularly an issue involving shea and cocoa butter so rest assured that the shea butter used in this product is Fair Trade Compliant. Batty's Bath also uses local ingredients whenever possible.

So who's this gal behind Batty's Bath? Jamie describes herself as a "star-gazing, animal-loving, tree-hugging, halloween obsessed, creative kind of gal". She's also a student at University of Western Ontario where she is currently finishing up a degree in Psychology. She's also studied animal care and visual arts in school. When Jamie isn't spending time creating with bath and body products or paper (or hitting the books), she's spending time with her fiance and their 3 rescue dogs, or participating in her long time love - photography.

If you haven't stopped by Batty's Bath for the grand opening yet, you'll definitely want to! Who wouldn't want to spoil themselves with pampering, ethical, bath products? Need a little more incentive to check out Batty's Bath and support a local artisan? You'll love this then: Local London residents get the added bonus of having their orders delivered to their door for free!
