A Los Angeles company is taking handmade soaps, lotions and candles to a whole new “level.”
Level Naturals is an all-natural bath and body care company located in one of the world’s largest artist colonies, The Brewery.
“Everything’s vegan, it’s gluten-free, it’s hand-made here in downtown Los Angeles,” co-founder Sabrina Roberson told California Life.
Roberson and best friend Jonathan Dubuque, both former chefs, came up with the idea for Level on a stormy, wine-filled night in Hawaii. Then, they spent a year learning how to make everything. A year marked by a lot of trials and errors.
“We made some truly horrific combinations of smells,“ Dubuque said.
They eventually came up with more than a dozen signature scents like “Patchouli and Orange Peel,” “Eucalyptus Lime” and “White Lavender.”
And everything from start to finish is handmade.
“The really cool thing about a hand-made product is how unique each one comes out as,” Dubuque said. “Much like a fingerprint, each one of our bars of soap is different and unique and special because of that.”
