4 Awesome Things You Support When You Shop at Mumu Bath

Finding products you love is great! Supporting people and spreading love with your purchases is even better! When you shop at Mumu Bath, you can trust that you’re getting products with all-natural, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients. These ingredients help nourish your skin rather than stripping it of its natural protective barriers and moisture. But when you buy Mumu Bath soaps and skincare products, you can also trust that your purchases support some incredible communities, people, and missions, too!

Want to know what we’re about here at Mumu Bath? Check it out below! We believe diversity, cultural heritages, and small business owners are worth celebrating and supporting! Here’s how you play a part in that mission with Mumu Bath skincare: 

4 Awesome Missions You Support with Mumu Bath

1. Support The AAPI Community

AAPI stands for Asian American and Pacific Islander. This incredibly diverse group comprises about 50 ethnic groups from over 40 countries speaking over 100 languages! The name does not intend to lump people together under one title but rather to celebrate and honor those from various heritages and cultures.

For example, AAPI Heritage Month seeks to bring awareness and celebrate the many achievements, accomplishments, and milestones of the broader AAPI community in the U.S. while sharing specific time-honored traditions from different groups. The beautiful blend of shared similarities and unique backgrounds and traditions is what makes AAPI so special.

The owner of Mumu Bath celebrates and honors her Taiwanese heritage through specialty soaps and Asian-inspired skincare ingredients. And, when the opportunity arises, Mumu Bath is proud to partner with other AAPI artisans for products like these gorgeous handmade soap trays by Taiwanese pottery artist Cynthia Chu! She owns a Taiwan ceramic studio and resides right here in Queens!

You can support AAPI business and reap the benefits of traditional Asian medicine. Try Mumu Bath’s new Mt. Ali Taiwanese Tea Soap. Mount Alishan is known for its delicious and healing high mountain tea. So, we brew tea fresh Ali mountain oolong tea (sourced from Mt. Ali) and then incorporate it into our cold-pressed soap process to retain the natural health components. The soap has a mild, comforting scent like a warm cup of tea! 

Or, try Mumu Bath’s nourishing Osmanthus Flower Body Oil! Learn more about it below:

Asian Ingredient Spotlight: Osmanthus Flower

What is it?

Osmanthus is a flowering plant native to eastern Asia—China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, etc. It has a sweet floral-fruity scent, like peach or apricot, making it the perfect natural scent to use in skincare products. It’s also often used to make summery Osmanthus tea. 

What does it do?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Osmanthus was used to prevent dry skin, dry mouth, excessive thirst, and upper respiratory conditions. However, for skin, Osmanthus contains lots of antioxidants to help detoxify the body, replenish moisture, and make skin brighter and clearer.

Where can I find it?

You can enjoy the skincare benefits of Osmanthus in Mumu Bath’s Osmanthus Flower Body Oil. (It works great on split ends, too!)

2. Support Mamas & Women-Owned Businesses

Being a mother is a job in and of itself (the very best kind!) But raising kiddos and growing a business requires double duty. Mumu Bath is a woman-owned company and a mom-owned business! Being a mom takes top priority, so we wouldn’t spend time on something that isn’t worthwhile.

When you purchase Mumu Bath products, you can trust that you’re getting the very best, highest quality ingredients. After all, the company began with a mission to create a gentle, all-natural soap to relieve infant eczema. Once our founder discovered the perfect balance with safe ingredients for the most sensitive skin, she couldn’t help but craft even more all-natural skincare products for her family and others looking for safer options.

3. Support Local Businesses

On that note, you also support local businesses when you shop Mumu Bath online or at one of our pop-up booths throughout NYC. You can find us in: 

  • Brooklyn
  • Queens
  • The Grand Bazaar
  • Canal Street Market
  • Manhattan markets
  • Turnstyle Underground Market
  • And more—we even make our way to sunny Cali now and then!

When you purchase from a local business, you pour back into your community and the future you want to see. We have a smaller carbon footprint than large companies and manufacturers, and we source sustainable, organic ingredients. It’s personal for us. We love to hear from our customers to find out what you love and want more of in our products! We’re your neighbors, eager to collaborate and support you in return! 

Supporting local businesses give you the power to improve the local economy and increase local jobs, too.
