Welcome to Duckish Natural Skin Care, where you can get handmade, truly natural skin care products! Our range of bath and body products, including body butter, bath salts, lip balm, lotion sticks and diaper rash sticks, are all natural and made with organic ingredients whenever possible.
Duckish is owned and operated by Carolyn Crewe and Josh Beitel, partners in life and in business. Their goal is to help you avoid weird stuff in your skin care products. While Duckish officially opened for business in October 2015, the story began two years earlier, when Carolyn's sister had a baby.
As a first-time aunt, Carolyn started looking a little closer at commonly used baby products. Upon seeing the questionable ingredients in most diaper rash creams, she decided to make something better, something with natural ingredients that was both effective and affordable. After a ton of ingredient and safety research, and an equal amount of experimentation, the Duckish Diaper Rash Stick was born. Picture the thick, white diaper rash cream you know, but get rid of the nasty ingredients and put it in a neat little mess-free application stick. Generous (and trusting!) friends tried it out on their babies and were more than pleased with the results.
Buoyed by this success, Carolyn started whipping up treatments for her own eczema-prone skin. The resulting body butters, lotion sticks and lip balms proved just as popular with friends as the diaper rash stick had been. That’s when she knew she was on to something worth pursuing. All she needed was a name.
And then it came to her: Duckish. Duckish is a word used in Carolyn’s native Newfoundland to refer to dusk or twilight. Not only is it her favourite time of day, it’s also when you might treat yourself to a well-salted bath or rub a little body butter on your aching feet. It was a perfect fit. In other words, when it’s duckish out, get your Duckish on!
