What does bU stand for? 

bU  (be . you)  Be Yourself

That's it! Just be yourself. You are Enough.

Growing up in the village of Mayo, Trinidad, our founder Malenee, always wanted to become a professional in the world of work. She went on to study and spend her early career in Electrical & Computer Engineering but her journey did not end there.  She has always been pro financial stability  and would never take risks with her career. She had a job, mid 20's, stable income...sounds like the end goal right? But for her there was more to life. She did what engineers do best; research! Lots of it!

"As a devoted vegetarian, I am constantly on the hunt for natural remedies, healthy living and general physical and mental well being."Just as eating well and exercising is important to maintain your mental and physical health, healthy and beautiful skin comes with consistency and quality products.

 

Unfortunately, quality products became synonymous with exorbitant prices along with added chemicals to either extend its shelf life or minimize the cost price of the product. Do you know that these harsh chemicals in our skincare affect our skin? Having suffered for years with dermatitis and sensitive skin, she always turned to fresh ingredients, making her home remedies using natural alternatives inspired by Ayurvedic Medicine.  What if this worked?  What if a higher quality, more affordable alternative can be offered. Eventually, she left her job to develop bU skin treats, a botanical skin care company and Curve Candle Co., a hand poured candle company which were

both created with physical and mental self care in mind.

"I love what I do, I love my brands. bU skin treats and

Curve Candle Co. were created to promote organic

and mindful self care in Trinidad and eventually the

global market."
