Belle Ame Soap Bar is the creation Yvette Crooke-Avera, who never knew that a hobby and a desire to create and share beautiful, quality, handmade products with friends and family could become the wonderful and rewarding business it is today. Upon deciding to try and make a business out of her fun and rewarding hobby, Yvette had to decide on a name, and she decided to include her daughters in it: Ansley, Megan, and Emma. Thus, the second word was born: Ame. With roots in Southeast Georgia, what better word Belle to complement her daughters' than Belle? The translation just so happened to mean Beautiful Soul, so the name was born: Belle Ame.
It all started after following her mother's footsteps into the hobby of soap making, she soon discovered a medium to express her creativity while making products that were beneficial to the skin and having that personal touch that made them perfect for giving as gifts. Realizing that products like hers, with an intimately personal, and creative touch were exactly what the gift and personal care market was missing, Yvette started to consider launching her own line of bath & body products.
Shortly thereafter, her middle daughter, Megan began to develop mild eczema and soon discovered that her soap was almost miraculous in its effect on the condition's development. It then became absolutely clear, that since her products were not only beautiful and fun to design, create, and share, but also beneficial for a number of skin conditions: Belle Ame had to be made available to people across the globe. With the recent addition of identical twin baby girls, Lilly & Sophia, Belle Ame also gives Yvette the perfect opportunity to set an example not only for her five daughters, but also every girl, and woman anywhere showing that if they set their mind to it, anything is possible.
