District Batch offers a line of luxurious, safe and effective formulas that smell great, are environmentally conscious and are housed in glass as an effort to reduce plastic consumption. Currently the only product we offer that’s in plastic is our lip balm. The founder of District Batch went on a plastic elimination diet a few years ago and only then realized how much plastic she was using. She had been making natural skin care products at home since she was a young teenager and got serious again when she met her husband. He has sensitive skin and she began making aftershave and other products for him and, eventually, soap. Founding District Batch was a way to fuse her love for hand crafting with environmental awareness.
District Batch is a small company operating out of the District of Colombia. We carefully source our ingredients from around the world using multiple suppliers so that we can choose the highest quality, best smelling ingredients available. We are so proud of the products we make. Each product is formulated in house, tested with volunteer “guinea pigs” ( we LOVE our testers! ), packaged, labeled and sent out from one small space. We house infuse witch hazel and luxury oils, we triple filter spent coffee grounds to bring you the finest exfoliation out there and we agonize over the right ingredients and manufacturing practices so that you don’t have to. Our products are carefully and mindfully crafted, they smell great and best of all they work.
While we aren’t 100% organic yet, as the company grows we are able to invest more in more in organic ingredients when they are available. We believe in transparency and we hope that our transparency encourages consumers to demand this transparency from other companies. Only then can we really begin to make changes about the way we consume, what we consume, and what we put on our bodies. Please read more about the ingredients we choose on our ingredients page.
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy hand crafting them.
