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!

Self care - Clean it up!
Self care - Clean it up!

When I say clean it up, I don’t mean your language, just your surroundings. This might be pretty self explanatory to some of you, but I know there a few people who might need a reminder. As well as cleaning unwanted dust (which is 75% dead skin cells ew), bacteria and germs, and just plain old rubbish. Cleaning your house is proven to lift your mood as well. You don’t have to do it all at once, but here are a few things to tackle when you get some time. Aim for one per day off. I’ve been doing this over the last few weeks and it’s really helping me enjoy my space and my belongings more.
