Ash Kitchen Handmade story began inside a small studio-type apartment. With a thousand pesos in our pocket, we enrolled in dishwashing liquid-making training. We tried to make and sell dishwashing liquid. However, we found out that the competition in the market is huge that to compete with the market, you should also have huge production and distribution. So, we decided to switch to a better business alternative. As an advocate of mild and cruelty-free cosmetic products, we thought of the idea of creating our brand of cosmetics and personal care. Without formal training and background in cosmetics manufacturing, we taught ourselves using online resources such as YouTube. In 2016, in a tiny kitchen inside a studio-type apartment, ASH KITCHEN HANDMADE was born.
Since the founding of our company in 2016, we have defined our brand philosophy which is now reflected in all our products. We have raised our self-awareness of sustainable and responsible entrepreneurship. While we aim for a profitable enterprise, we also aim for the protection of the environment by using natural raw materials, eco-friendly packaging, and continuously reinventing ourselves as a social enterprise that supports local industry.
BE YOU, be Naturally Be-YOU-tiful!
Why "Ash Kitchen"? Traditionally, soap is made from ash and fats. When no commercial chemicals are available in the market, people used to make their soaps. The process of making soap is tedious, it involves craftsmanship and dedication just to produce one bar of soap. However, the result of this tedious process is pure, organic, and with no artificial chemicals that can harm the skin.
In Ash Kitchen, we see this traditional process of making soap as our guiding principle in producing natural and high-quality products. Tired of all these commercially available products that usually have harmful chemicals and additives, we formulate our own based on the purest and most natural ingredients.
" BE YOU, be Naturally Be-YOU-tiful!"--this is our belief. Beauty is not about the things that you put to mask imperfections. We believe that real beauty has imperfections, and imperfection itself is the very essence of our being.
From our soaps to other body essentials, we make sure and guarantee that all our ingredients are pure, and no harmful chemicals are added. Meticulously, our process is all handmade, crafted not only by our hands but also by love.
