Hello I’m Kylie, creator & owner of Richmond Bridge Bath & Giftware.
I am a mum of 4 and am obsessed about using and creating natural bath and beauty products.
I started this adventure about 20 years ago when our first son had very sensitive and dry skin and I wasn’t happy with the choices available to us at the time. So my skin care venture began.
I wanted fresh clean basic products with an ingredient list I could understand.
My journey began with very basic soap making and the difference in my families skin amazed us all. I was addicted.
I started experimenting with beautiful organic butters, oils, clays and botanicals and today I have a range of skin care products including hair cream to soaps to basic dry clay face masks, room sprays, body butters to my favourite face cream and serum. I create all our products from raw ingredients, as local as possible, from recipes I have been refining for decades. So therefore we can offer our products at reasonable prices, as they are made from scratch in our studio in small batches.
I use local packaging that’s recyclable. I offer a refill service for my candles. I love meeting my customers and hope you all love the products too.
We love gardening and grow organic herbs and flowers, I utilise these botanicals where possible in my skin care, botanical infused oils, decorating soaps, crushed botanicals for face masks and in bath milk my favourite dried cornflowers and chamomile.
Over 2 decades ago we moved from Queensland to Southern Tasmania and fell in love with the historic town Richmond. We are so lucky to have a property next to the oldest bridge in Australia and here we set up my shop with workshop/studio, our heritage accommodation and open garden. We overlook the bridge with all its history. I’m onsite most days creating something in the studio and talking to customers or at our permanent Salamanca Market site number 81 every Saturday.
