uRBANwHIP was founded by Danielle Lasit - A mom of 5 and the designer and manufacturer of all uRBAN wHIP products. She started this company in 2009 as an overwhelmed and working single mother, that was ready to slow down and enjoy the moments with her children. In a world that is constantly busy, she desperately craved a simpler lifestyle that was less frantic, more thoughtful, healthier and full of the good things!
Wanting to build the very best foundation for her young children while nurturing their self worth and self image. She began selling the very homemade concoctions that she whipped up in her kitchen to pamper and nourish her children without all the harsh chemical laden products that were seemingly the only options available to them at that time. With only a small budget allocated for personal care items in her growing family and knowing that she wanted to feed their skin and hair with the same nourishment that she did their bodies with natural, wholesome ingredients, uRBAN wHIP was born - out of a desire to give the best to her family and our desire to share it with everyone.
