The Creator Of Audamus

Gloria, the founder of Audamus, is a dedicated mum of three kids. Her three kids were the reason and inspiration for making handmade soaps. The name “Audamus” is actually a combination of the names of Gloria’s three kids, Aurora, Damien, and Maximus.

Gloria is a chemist by profession, who works in a testing laboratory, so her experimental forays into soap making did not happen by accident. She knows all the ins and outs of chemical formulas, and definitely knows her trade.

How It Started

Gloria’s kids had been suffering from eczema for a very long time, from as young as three weeks old. Eczema is a condition which causes red, inflamed, and itchy skin.

She tried everything she could to fix the problem, but nothing helped their condition.

Eventually, she attended a class on making handmade soap and instantly took an interest to it and how it could help her children. She started making soap and tested it on herself to see how it could be better. After she tested them, she realised she liked the improvement it had on her skin, and used them on her kids.

The Result

Gloria has been making and using the soap for her kids and her family for about 2 years when she realised that her soap could help others. She could already see improvements in her children’s skin after 2-3 uses. Energised by this fact, she decided to start the ‘Audamus’ brand to help others who are struggling with eczema and sensitive skin as well.
