Quality. Integrity. Sustainability.
That’s what we’re about. Hi, we're Dominic & Malena Taylor, and here is our story: We started with a single liquid soap. With our first pregnancy, we became more concerned with the products that we were using & began to educate ourselves heavily on ingredients as well as packaging.
We enjoyed making liquid soap as a hobby but as our first baby got closer to coming into this world, there was little time left for hobbies. Unfortunately the choices at the local grocery store were not adequate. Dr. Bronners seemed to be the only option that had no fragrance, no detergents, and no unfamiliar ingredients. Being of entrepreneurial spirit we decided to be the ones that would bring more choice to the real soap market & take it to the next level; Store it in glass; which is leach free & infinitely recylable.
Being quality minded and dedicated to our principles we decided it would simply have to be the best product available and the business would have to be of impeccable integrity. Since that first liquid soap the company and the family has grown lea
We support businesses that offer quality products. We support businesses that have the integrity to stand behind their products and treat their customers with appreciation and respect. Most importantly we support businesses that appreciate the natural resources, skill, hard work, and trust that comes from Mother Nature, their employees and most of all their customers.
We are the TAYLOR'S and we want nothing less than to raise the bar for all businesses. When you purchase our products you tell the world that a business can succeed without cutting corners, without passing costs on to our world in the form on waste and environmental negligence and without relying on clever marketing to sell inferior products.
Please ask us anything you would like to know about us. Someone may have already asked on our FAQ’s page. We will give you an honest answer. And please don’t be afraid to ask any business you deal with tough questions. You have a right to know where your time & money is going.
ALOHA, Malama' Aina
In case you don't know us, we are Dominic & Malena, creators of BALM! Baby & ELEVATED product lines. Our story of creating pure & natural whole body care, in sustainable packaging began 10 years ago, when we set out to offer liquid castile soap in plastic-free packaging. We've grown as a business, family, and in many other ways since then, but continue to run the show!
Malena is our master herbal alchemist, graphic designer, and marketing director. Dominic is our visionary, and runs systems and operations. Our little guys prompted us to create, as when we were pregnant with our oldest, we could not find natural body care in sustainable packaging, and our "baby" has super sensitive skin.
We hand-craft everything in small batches, using as local ingredients as possible, and are committed to quality, sustainability, and integrity, in all of our business practices. We are quite active in reducing waste to restore a balance to our planet, offering healthy alternatives, educating on sustainability, and raising the bar for other businesses to do the same. Please feel free to reach out if you ever want to know more about our products, business, or who we are.
