Scrubba Body, a bit about us

April 21, 2021


 We’re coming up to 5 years of Scrubba Body and as we have been nominated in the Hunter Local Business Awards, Specialised Retail Business category, we just wanted to let you know a bit about us and why we love what we do!

 Scrubba Body was founded by Josh and Jase in their kitchen back in 2016, when they couldn’t find products that suited their needs and beliefs, they decided to do some research and make their own.

The 5 non negotiable factors they had both decided everything they make must include were:

  • Natural
  • Vegan
  • Effective
  • Enjoyable
  • Australian Made

  The boys started with body scrub which targeted certain skin conditions that also make your skin smell and feel amazing. From there different ideas started pouring out and that’s how Scrubba Body was born! There are new products always in the pipeline, being tested on friends and family. We even have a whole new range coming out in the next week or so!


 Since the days of making everything in the kitchen, the company has grown, from being online, to markets around Australia (so many markets), shopping centre pop-ups, to 3 bricks and mortar stores! Marketown in Newcastle, our first store that opened 2 weeks before COVID hit, is home base. Where we do the making, packaging and posting all off our orders. Our beautiful Westfield Kotara store opened in October of 2020 and the newest baby, our Charlestown Square Store opened last week.

 With the business growing we needed some help, and in comes Brookie, our Customer Service Queen! She has been working our pop-ups and stores before anyone else, (since she was 16!) and knows everything there is to know about Scrubba Body. Joining Brookie in our stores are Chloe, Teghan, Grace, Bailey and Bec, these guys are superstars, who always have a smile on their face and will be able to answer all of your questions. Then there is me, Hayley. I’m managing the marketing, social media and digital presence. I’ve been a Scrubba Body fan since day dot, always singing it’s praises, no matter where in the world I was. When I moved back to Newcastle and started working with Scrubba Body, I had no idea how hard everyone works to get the beautiful products, I’d been using for years, made and packaged. So much time and effort goes into each batch of any of the 70-something different products, it really shows what passion can do.

I’m so proud to be part of the Scrubba Body team and urge everyone who hasn’t already, if you love your Scrubba Body products, please vote in the Hunter Local Business Awards at the link below. I think Josh and Jase and Scrubba Body deserve to know how much we love them!

One of the main benefits of cold process soap making is having complete control over ingredients. This is why we chose this process. Like all of our Scrubba products, we are very particular about what goes into them. Cold process soap has no added detergents, which strip the skin of its natural oils and can cause allergic reactions. Additional ingredients are also added to increase the skin loving benefits, like oats, kaolin and a bunch of other botanicals. Depending on the ingredients you use, cold process soap making typically yields a long-lasting bar of soap.

We love our city and with the QT Newcastle opening on Thursday (they’ll be stocking some of our products!), we’ve been thinking about how amazing it is to have another beautiful hotel in the city. Then we were thinking about how great of a place for tourists our city is, with so many things to do. I’ve just had friends visit from out of state who were shocked with how many amazing restaurants, bars, beaches, and general cool things there were to do around Town. So I thought I’d put together some of my favourite places to go, things to eat, drink and see.
