amba - that's how it all started

"He came, he saw, she won"

You - discovered in 1998 in a market the soap status of a friend who made himself soaps. The scents were so fascinating that they couldn't let go. These brought back memories of her childhood, when she often spent not only in the hammock in her grandfather's nursery, but also helped to grow flowers and herbs. She saw how these grew and smelled wonderfully. She found the soaps and scents and the creativity that could be displayed when making soaps so fascinating that she and her friend started making soaps. In 2001 they sold their own soaps at a stand at the Christmas market on Sophienstrasse in Berlin, which gave off such a wonderful scent that ...

He - the there a booth had with meditation pillows, couch cushions, pillows in the shape of a dolphin and more, filled with organic grain fur, interested approached them.

They exchanged goods - wonderfully fragrant soaps for a dolphin pillow.

She - with a heavy heart, stopped working with her girlfriend after the Christmas market, but the passion for making soap and scents remained. She went on resolutely. She researched, tasted, researched the effects of essential oils and made soaps according to the old tradition of the cold-stirred process, whatever it took. In the summer of 2002 the time had come. She had found her style, created her own recipes and was ready to sell the soaps. She had her first market stall on Winterfeldplatz and also ...

He - there had a booth, whereupon it again started talking and he has learned that ...

you - meanwhile produces the soap in her own soap kitchen and reinterprets the old art of soap making.

He - who has been involved with fragrances and essential oils for many years, is very knowledgeable about aromatherapy and knows just about everything about fragrances and essential oils, was so impressed with their soap making that ...

She - cast a spell over him with her own scents, so that ...

He and she made a Christmas market with two stalls together -

a soap stand and a pillow stand.

Together they founded the amba soap manufactory.

There were also:

2003 - Production of honey baths and bath salts

Everyone knows bath salts. However, we wanted to do something different from what was already there. We have added essential oils to the good mineral-rich Himalayan salt.

Another idea was the honey bath. Flavoring honey is extraordinary, but it was obvious because honey is a moisturizer and one of the oldest skin care products we know. So we tried, tested and produced. The first batch went away like delicious honey and has been an integral part of our production ever since.

2005 - Production of aroma skin care and massage oils and airsp rays

The ideas never run out ... So in 2005 the Aroma skin care and massage oils were created, of course only with the best oils (from controlled organic cultivation) for the skin and with fragrance combinations that both care for the skin and beguile the senses.

The air sprays deserve only the best, organic premium alcohol and the great fragrance creations of our nose "Günter".

2006 - own mold construction

We already had soap molds before, but then we researched and tried again. The result is our soap molds, which we have been making ourselves since then .

2007 - Mrs. Lot "Soap on the Rope"

So it came about that in 2007 the magazine Texte zur Kunst discovered us. We received the order to produce the shape of Ms. Lot, which the artist Mike Kelly had designed as a “Soap on the Rope” as a contribution to “Sculpture Projects Münster 07”. To be seen as a picture in issue 67 September 2007 (Texts on Art / Editions).

2009 - Manufacture of sauna infusions, aftershave

Since we are diligent sauna-goers, we were literally fed up with the occasionally questionable fragrances that are unfortunately often used in the sauna. The decision to counter this led us to make sauna infusions ourselves, of course ... more

We see it the same way with aftershave.

2011 - Manufacture of perfumes

We have been working on perfumes since 2006. The result is the perfume oils and, since 2011, the eau de parfums.

So far we have not only designed individual fragrance creations for the soap manufactory, but also for other companies such as skin care studios, hotels and private customers ... more

The ideas are still bubbling up, new products are being created and our product range is constantly expanding.

At this point we would like to thank our customers who have encouraged us time and again to continue and to stick with it. Quote from a customer:

  "Carry on like this, quality always prevails"
