Shark Tank is back with its 15th season premiere tonight. With the new season, new entrepreneurs are coming to pitch their products. One of these is Gently Soap for Sensitive Skin. Here is what you need to know about this product and where to buy it.
What is Gently Soap For Sensitive Skin on Shark Tank?
Gently Soap For Sensitive Skin is a new product on Shark Tank by entrepreneur Kristen Dunning. This is a soap that is specifically made for people with sensitive skin issues. For Kristen, this was about making soap that could help her despite suffering from eczema since she was young. She set out to find a product that would not affect her skin issues and ended up creating her own.
Kristen was born with eczema, which she said was tough for her as a child. She said there was a social stigmatization when she was young, and her parents even said that her skin was like that of a baby alligator, always scaling and peeling.
Kristen went on steroid treatments, and this caused problems later in her life when she went through steroid withdrawal situations. As an adult, she chose to look at the issues from an academic point of view and that is where she came up with her product.
In her undergraduate years, she studied Horticultural Science and Agricultural Communications. She credited this interest to both her family’s background in agriculture and her grandmother’s interest in herbal knowledge. She looked at plants like calendula and chamomile, and this helped her develop her product line.
Gently Soap For Sensitive Skin on Shark Tank excludes essential oils, toxic chemicals, and synthetic fragrances from the product. However, this does not mean the soap does not have a pleasing scent. Instead, she used herbs to give the soap natural aromas without harming the skin’s health. Kristen also made sure her product had no waste, was vegan, and used only organic fair-trade ingredients.
