About Us

Natural Selection Bath and Body was started in the kitchen of our home in 2000. It is a family owned, woman run business located in San Diego, CA. I have a love for all things handmade and have been designing and making crafts all my life. My interests have ranged from wire wrap jewelry, cake decorating, knitting, sewing and creating wonderfully pampering bath and body products. We are a true family business. My husband, Jay, was a biology teacher by day and photographer/webmaster/graphic artist by night until he lost his battle to cancer October 2014. Our oldest son is the Buddha Baby model. Eileen, my very talented sister-in-law, and Gale, my very talented mother-in-law have both contributed a great deal with graphics.

I built the business by doing street fairs throughout San Diego county. We have doubled the first 4 years in business. Since then, and thanks to your wonderful support, we've enjoyed double digit growth for the next 8 years.

Our products are now sold throughout the country in gift shops, spas and boutiques. Our mission is to provide you with personal care products that pamper the body, lift the spirit and soothe the soul. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy creating them.
