'Kushboo' is the creation of Soap maker Sarwat Jaleel - pronounced 'Ser’vet'
Born in the U.K as a child of Indian parents, Sarwat grew up in Lancashire, England with a mother who only ever used natural products for the family, reflecting centuries of eastern health and beauty care.
Sarwat had her first daughter during her first degree, her second daughter whilst studying for her Masters degree and training to be a qualified broadcast Journalist and her third daughter whilst working as a Broadcast Journalist, Producer and Reporter for BBC Radio. Over several years, Sarwat moved into television working on various BBC & ITV television programmes including BBC Children's ‘Blue Peter', both in the live studio and behind the scenes creating many of the famous Blue Peter ‘makes’ including a very popular ‘bath bomb’ make for Mother’s Day.
The Story of Kushboo...
An illness and long spell in hospital was a turning point in Sarwat’s journey. After showering with a luxurious soap bought in by her husband Richard, Sarwat was amazed how the beautiful scent from a bar of soap lifted her spirits. It was a reminder that the basic things can somehow make all the difference, even for just a few moments. That night Sarwat decided that she would begin to make soap for a local homeless charity.
But Sarwat wanted to create the very best ethical soap using natural ingredients, the knowledge and wisdom of herbs and spices passed down from her parents and of course, it had to be made with love…
Skincare inspired by my Indian heritage
At Kushboo, we approach making skincare as we would approach cooking, especially Indian cooking - where every single ingredient is natural and is chosen for its specific purpose to cleanse, moisturise and balance the skin. It’s the combination of quality ingredients, passion, skills and integrity all combining to create something truly unique. We handcraft every single bar soap individually in our 'Soap Kitchen', located in the beautiful Ribble Valley in the heart of Lancashire, England - an area of outstanding beauty, offering breathtaking inspiration in our creation of natural skincare.”
The various properties of the essential oils is an added bonus to restore and balance the mind and body. We add a natural exfoliator that compliments and balances the main scent enhancing each soap’s wellbeing qualities.
