Introducing Gently: A personal skincare battle 🧼

Kristen was only 4 years old when her hair began to fall out due to Seborrheic dermatitis and her skin began suffer with eczema. She dealth with this for years while drug-store skin treatments only inflamed her symptoms - burning, peeling, itchy, breakouts, flare-ups - you name it.

It felt like nothing was going to help her find the skin joy she had been looking for.

But from that struggle was born a mission to find a solution - which led her to the world of botanical medicines. With her deep understanding of plant-science and guidance from her horticultural mentor Dr. David Knauft, she started developing synethic-free soaps specifically designed to avoid eczema irritants and aggressors.

And there, Gently Soap was born. 🧼🫧

Kristen's journey with Gently Soap

"The Soap is Amazing! Both my daughter and I have been using the soap. It smells great but better our skin is not dry and we have had zero breakouts since we began using the Gently soap. We love it and plan to keep using it."

— Pearl Barnett

The Skin Journey So Far...

After Gently's launch, Kristen worked hard perfect the soap's formula's and ingredients, releasing multiple soaps for different skin types and needs!

It first started with family and friends raving about how much they loved the soap, how it made them feel, and what it's done for their skin. It was then Kristen knew she had to help more people and set up an online store to spread the message!

After Kristen's momentum went from strength to strength, winning numerous awards for her work with Gently, she was invited to the coveted Shark Tank, where she wow'd the Sharks and went on to receiving backing from cupcake superstar Candace Nelson.

Since then, the two have been bringing Gently from strength to strength and spreading the skin joy across the United States!

3 Things Kristen has done since Shark Tank to take Gently to the next level:

1. Secured Grants by winning the Aveeno 2023 Skin Health Start Up of the Year Award and became a top finalist in Pharrell's Black Ambition prize - totalling $200,000 that will go back into the business.

2. Heightened brand profile by landing distribution with the covetable thirteen lune, being featurd on Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine holiday gift list, and getting a shout-out from Oprah's O Daily.

3. Re-Stock!: After Shark Tank, Gently sold out of EVERYTHING, but Kristen got to work and got the next batch of soaps in and is now fully re-stocked and ready to help more and more people find skin joy!

We used draining soap dishes as recommended but these very quickly became a gelatinous marshmallows. They aren’t pleasant to use because of this. It’s a less than ideal soap experience.

The scents are great and not overpowering, I bought these for my daughter who has dermatitis, sensitive skin and she loves the soaps.

I absolutely love these soaps, I’ve never been able to wash with anything but Dove. Especially on my face, everything would irritate my face and it would be so raw on my cheeks but, these soap are awesome no irritation whatsoever. I’ve had Eczema since I was a child. Thank you for this soap.
