What is Saavy Naturals?
Saavy Naturals is a line of artisan body care products that is all-natural, entirely made from food grade ingredients, and is cruelty-free, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and vegan. The brand has an additional list of ingredients which are banned from any and all product formulations, including parabens, phthalates, artificial colors, and synthetic fragrances.
Who Owns Saavy Naturals?
The business was started by Hugo and Debra Saavedra, professional chefs and former restaurateurs. They are also garden hobbyists who are passionate about the health and quality of the ingredients that go into the body as well as on it. Prior to launching Saavy Naturals, they enjoyed making their own natural, food grade soaps and lotions.
Hugo and Debra Saavedra have what they describe as a “food-perspective.” This is evident in their work as chefs, creating delicious yet nutritious dishes, and in their personal lives.
They began gardening as a hobby to support their work in the kitchen, valuing their healthy, sustainably-grown ingredients.
This passion branched out to include personal care products, as the skin is the body’s largest organ and what you put on it will ultimately be absorbed into it.
They experimented making their own high-quality soaps and lotions, which then led to the formation of their business: Saavy Naturals.
