It all started in 2022 with a simple idea: it should be easy and fun to make sustainability a habit. I saw an opportunity to combat plastic pollution in personal care after learning that 95% of all plastic made is never recycled, and most shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are up to 90% water. I wanted to inspire people to make a simple swap: nourishing, effective, indulgent products that aren't watered down.
Sunniemade is independently owned and grassroots grown, built from the ground up with small budgets, big ideas and lots of community support. I'm proud to be both the dreamer and the doer bringing this business to life. I got my start by making homemade bar soap in a little kitchen in Lincoln Park, Chicago with the help of my husband, Moss. I have since expanded to offer all the essentials for a plastic-free routine and now now live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado with my little family.
We have big plans on the horizon and a lot more work to do. I hope you'll be a part of our story.
The Plastic Problem
In 2021, 95% of all plastic made was never recycled. We're here to take plastic out of the equation.
Liquid shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are up to 90% water. We don't water things down.
When you switch to Sunniemade, you (and the planet) don’t pay for transporting water. Plastic bottles take 450 years to degrade, causing micro-plastics to enter our waterways, soil, and even our bodies. We prevent plastic from ever entering our waste system and cut the emissions caused by shipping heavy plastic bottles. And, our long-lasting bars dispense only what you need – no plastic pumps sending suds down the drain.
Our Commitment to Clean
The last time the FDA passed regulations for the ingredients used in personal care products was in 1938. We're setting our own standard.
Sunniemade bars come with all-natural, plant-based oils packed with vitamins and antioxidants that nourish your skin and hair. And you'll never find synthetic fragrances or dyes in our bars.
No Preservatives Necessary
Added water means added preservatives. Our concentrated bars come with all the effective, nourishing ingredients you need — and nothing you don't.
Personal Care with Purpose
We're not just hoping for a better future. We're building it.
