Bath By Bettijo was created by Bettijo B. Hirschi, who became interested in health and beauty as a respite from her demanding career life. Bettijo began experimenting with herbs to create relaxation remedies at home. In the small kitchen of a high-rise apartment, Bettijo handmade her first bar of soap. She was thrilled with her creation and immersed herself in all the books and research she could find about natural body care treatments. This home spa obsession sprouted into the Bath By Bettijo collection, which launched in November 2003, with a mission to provide natural, healthy products to pamper overextended and overworked people -- which is just about everyone. Using the best of what Mother Nature has to offer, Bath By Bettijo products include pure essential oils, raw shea butter, and a variety of other oils, herbs and botanicals. The products are not tested on animals, and they also reduce waste by using no outer product packaging and ensuring all product containers are recyclable.
