- Andrea Tranter, Founder

Our first product was created in 1998, by founders Andrea Tranter and Bruce Tiffin, for their own daughter Sierra (aka SiSi).  Products available to them did not improve SiSi’s stubborn diaper rash and some even made it worse, so, out of necessity they created Baby Balm, a natural, plant powered remedy to treat her rash and protect her sensitive skin.  SiSi’s rash cleared up completely within 24 hours after using Baby Balm!  Andrea, amazed with the results studied to become a chartered herbalist. After learning more about the benefits of natural ingredients, she began taking botanical formulation courses. She has been researching and creating natural skincare products ever since.
