Our Story

 


Hey Loves! Welcome to Sugar Plum Scrubs. My name is Eshe Simba and I am the creator and owner of Sugar Plum Scrubs.

I have an entire support system rallying behind me to offer you self-soothing and therapeutic products. 

Before I begin I would like to express a heartfelt thank you for YOU. I hope you realize you have not only taken the time to check out this store, you have instilled a sense of accomplishment in myself and my community that I will forever be grateful for.

I'd like to thank my mother, who insists I make her sugar scrubs time and time again, thereby allowing me to perfect my craft. I am very lucky to be able to create magic in her kitchen!

I'd also like to thank my aunt, who has this amazing lavender plant in her garden that has blessed these sugar scrubs in ways you can only imagine.

And lastly, to my friends and family who have supported this venture I appreciate you. Your kind words and your generosity never go unnoticed. 

Now let's get to the sweet stuff.

Sugar Plum Scrubs was started when I realized I wasn't enjoying my shower. I would look at the products I'd buy from various stores and I wouldn't understand the ingredients. This created a fear for my health.

I have heard countless stories of other Black & African women all over the diaspora with stories of fibroids, pcos and other conditions & often wondered if it was linked to their cosmetic use. Instead of worrying, I decided to do something about it. 

I just wanted a straight forward shower experience. One I didn't have to second guess. I wanted to enjoy the products I used. Seriously, it's that simple.

I decided to put my energy into creating a product that made me feel good. I wanted to feel healthy and energized. I wanted to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. But there was one more thing I needed. I needed to feel confident and sexy in my skin. 

No self-care routine will ever be effective if we aren’t comfortable with the woman we are inside and out. I made the choice to love my skin without any added products in order to consciously create a line of products that weren’t changing my body and skin chemistry but were making me feel good about the woman I am without them. 

Sugar Plum Scrubs brought new sensation to my life and one that stood out for me was overall softness. As a woman, I’ve learned the importance of being soft and sensual beings. And this need is inspired by the need for touch. Touch  is a soothing and calming experience and I want to encourage women and men alike to experience closeness both with themselves and others. Especially in a time where touch is often sidelined and closeness is longed for but shot down by unnecessary conflict.

I hope that Sugar Plum Scrubs can encourage you to feel at peace and you can share that softness with others. I hope that allows you to hold on to your loved ones just a little bit longer.

Allow us to serve you. Join the movement.
