Why Earthybug?

Earthybug was founded by two sisters in North Carolina a few years ago because we were sick and tired of finding our everyday skin care products to be full of parabens, propylene glycol, aluminum, and other questionable ingredients which can be linked to a wide range of ailments including hormone disruption, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.

The journey to make these pure and organic household products started after we realized almost everything in our showers and sink cabinets contained parabens.  We combed through our household cabinets to remove all products containing them – and sadly discovered that there wasn’t much left.  Once we began doing research on skin care products and their common ingredients, we found that there were many other added chemicals that we wanted to stay away from.  Both of us love to research and create, so Earthybug was born!

For years, we have experimented and perfected our pure and natural skin care recipes and shared the results with friends and family.  Such a demand grew that we decided to set up production.   Since then, Earthybug has expanded to beard care products,  pain relievers, pest repellents, and more.  We want to share with you our lovely experience of luxury and freedom from worry in skin care, using nature as our guide.

In 2013-2014, Emily enjoyed a successful Etsy store after moving to Johnson City, Tennessee but has since ended production to focus on her family and career.  Sarah re-launched in early 2018 out of central North Carolina, with Emily’s blessing and support.

Sarah’s partner Stewart has been instrumental in keeping Earthybug running full steam since Summer 2018!  You may find Sarah and Stewart at holiday shopping events, farmers markets, and pop-up boutiques around the local area.  Team work makes the dream work!
