Hi! I’m Ai (pronounced “eye”), and I’m the owner and sole proprietor behind Bath Geek LLC. Bath Geek is located in Highlands Ranch, a suburb of Denver, Colorado. Bath Geek was founded based on this simple thought: Allergies shouldn’t keep me from having nice things.
I developed almost all my allergies after college, including Oral Allergy Syndrome and an allergy to soy. A day without a breathing challenge is a day to remember. I understand the frustration at not being able to just pick something up off the shelf without reading the label in detail.
I was talking to one of my friends when she mentioned that her coconut allergy made life in general extremely challenging. She said there was a huge need for coconut-free soap. She had trouble every single day just taking her daily bath, and her hair was a lost cause. I had no idea every kind of detergent and soap out there is derived from coconut!
I immediately sympathized. I have a very similar thought about soy almost daily. (It’s amazing how much food out there contains soy, including chocolate pudding, bread, ice cream, and every kind of frozen pizza I can find on the shelves.) But in my case, I could at least cook for myself and I wouldn’t miss out nutritionally. I couldn’t even imagine not being able to trust my bath products or toiletries. Armed with my interest in chemistry, I set forth and began to research and experiment. The result is this website and my products.
I’m learning more about allergies every day, and I welcome anything you have to share about allergies and how I can help you live a better life and have nice things. Because really: allergies shouldn’t keep you from having nice things either.
