As I sit here days before the launch of our new store typing my first (but the beginning of many) notes to all of you, I am simply in awe of how incredibly serendipitous life can be and how easy our dreams can come to fruition.  Wash with Water started in a tub in Isle of Palms, South Carolina with one little girl, my then five-year old daughter, Violet.

We are so beautifully diverse and yet so deeply connected; leveraging that connectedness, the common thread, is the essence of what I seek to create and share with our families.  My favorite common thread= bath time.  Regardless of where or when it occurs on this remarkable planet of ours, when bath time arrives for a little one there is 99.9% chance their parent will wash with water…this is also how I came up with the name of our brand. Maintaining that focus is the culture of our Company and the momentum to source the very best organic and natural ingredients designed to improve the look, feel, and health of hair and skin for all children and ethnicities. I truly believe the seed of our "calling" aka what will really fulfill us is with us from the very beginning.  We do not need to search or study but rather be present…and sometimes the stars just need to align. X's and O's all day, Stephanie
