The founder of Tahamí By Nature has been making handcrafted bath and body products since 2009. From the very beginning, many of our ingredients were sustainably sourced from South America - a tradition that continues. After years of encouragement to sell our products, we picked a name that represented the region which inspired and provides us with beneficial ingredients. As a result, we took our name from a group of South American indigenous people - the Tahamí Indians. The South American rainforests, with the largest being the Amazon, are famed for their immense biodiversity. The number of plant species is the highest on Earth with one Ecuadorian rainforest supporting more than 1,100 tree species. In the region, scientists have identified at least 438,000 plant species of economic and social interest, with many more remaining to be discovered or cataloged. The total number of tree species in the region is estimated at 16,000. It is our appreciation for Mother Earth that lead Tahamí to make the following pledge when creating our company:
- Sustainability - Tahamí is committed to purchasing supplies from suppliers that are committed to sustainability and the maintenance of biodiversity.
- No Animal Testing – We make every effort to only purchase products that were not tested on animals. This makes Crimson and Banjo very happy. (See our fur babies below)
- Environmentally Friendly – We consistently look for methods and practices that reduce our environmental footprint while creating high quality products. We are not where we want to be, but are making great strides. Just trying to get it right!!!
The Tahamí Mission
Tahamí By Nature’s founder has been making handcrafted beauty products since 2009. However, it was not until she learned the plight of children in the foster care system that she decided to do what people had been suggesting for years…sell her "stuff". Soaping with a Purpose was born.
Soaping With A Purpose
Soap with a Purpose… means we make soap to earn the resources necessary to support Be A Resource (BEAR), the non-profit arm of a local Child Protective Service. As the BEAR website states, “BEAR...BE A Resource for CPS Kids offers hope and help to abused and neglected children and the caseworkers that protect them." This is an effort Tahamí is honored to support.
WHAT IS BEAR?
BEAR is a 501 (c) (3) public/private partnership that provides emergency goods and services directly to children under the care of Child Protective Services (CPS)
The Tahamí team believes that a company can be "meaningfully" charitable while maintaining profitability. Tahamí has committed to donated 10% of all sales to BEAR. This is 10% of all sales before all costs. So not only will your purchase bring you fragrant candles and skin loving beauty products, but you will be providing “Hope and Help for abused and neglected children”.
