Scrubber is owned and operated by us, Siu-see & Scott.
We initially started making our own personal care products close to 6 years ago, when we were broke graduates who struggled to find natural and plastic free options that we could afford.
Over the years, we continued to refine our formulas and give them away as presents to friends and family (converting almost all of them to natural deodorants along the way!)
We started Scrubber because we wanted to introduce a more affordable option that is more accessible to all. Natural, eco-friendly products tend to be much more expensive as they are more expensive to manufacture, but we wanted to create an option that was as affordable as possible.
We really want Earth saving products to be for everyone, not just the people that can afford to pay the premium, so created Scrubber
2/As your own boss and a small business owner how do you juggle your work and life and ensure that you don't work too much?
We are both used to the freelance lifestyle as we are both performers alongside running Scrubber. In fact, we launched Scrubber as we were both a bit adrift at the beginning of the pandemic, having had all our tours/festivals and appearances cancelled.
3/Where do your product and branding ideas come from?
We wanted our products to look a little different to the usual neat, minimalist branding you see on most luxe eco products.
4/What is your best advise for people starting small businesses that you wish you knew when you were starting?
The best advice is to just go for it.
