It's a Pleasure to Meet You!...
LAUREN - FOUNDER & CEO
Lauren has been making her own skincare products for over 10 years. Why? She was tired of buying skincare that didn’t work for her. After several years of research and trial and error, she landed on ingredient blends that addressed her really dry, sensitive skin. Little did she know that this would be the early beginnings of Scrub & Butter.
Once she perfected making products for herself, she gifted some of her faves to close family and friends. Those family members and friends kept coming back. In 2017, once the requests and informal orders started building up, Scrub & Butter was born.
Lauren is passionate about making products that are easy to use and easy to understand. Her favourite products are the Coffee Scrub, her very first product, and her brand new Liquid Butter.
"Witnessing Scrub & Butter’s growth and hearing what our customers’ are saying about our products has been incredibly rewarding. I’ve learnt so much from them and that has helped the brand evolve - from our products, to packaging and even content. I’m ready to continue on this amazing journey with them and I’m truly excited about what’s to come.” - Lauren
ALYSON - MANAGER, FULFILLMENT & OPERATIONS
Alyson is responsible for keeping the Scrub & Butter ship on track and manages all things fulfillment and operations. She keeps our shelves stocked with inventory, liaises with vendors, and ensures customer orders are packaged with love and arrive at your door as quickly as possible.
Alyson, Lauren’s mother, is where Lauren developed her work ethic, fearlessness and obsession with skincare. She is a sounding board, a guiding light and the best cheerleader a daughter could ask for.
Alyson’s favourite products are the Coffee Scrub and the Body Butter.
JESSICA - MANAGER, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Jessica joined the Scrub & Butter team in April of 2021 and brings over 10 years of experience in helping scale small businesses. We are excited to have Jessica and her expertise on board as we continue to grow.
In 2008, Jessica was hired at Toronto General Hospital as a member of the fundraising staff; her role there was to take a small local event national. After two years of scaling up the event from 50 participants in Toronto, to 5,000 participants across the country, Jessica was obsessed with how small businesses could find opportunities for growth and development. She decided to pursue her MBA in London, England, and has spent the past decade, either consulting for and/or running small businesses. She is always searching for ways to help businesses grow and thrive.
Why Scrub & Butter:
Jessica was a competitive swimmer for over 14 years. After spending that much time in chlorinated water she prioritizes finding skincare products that work to leave her skin feeling and looking radiant!
Jess’ favourite products are the Body Butter and Coffee Scrub.
