About Us

The birth of Island Basics began with the birth of our daughter.

As parents of a baby girl, we tried to provide her with natural alternatives for her toiletries. We became more aware of what products we brought into our home. We searched for toiletries and cleaning products which were made with natural ingredients. While we found many imported products, they were quite expensive. It was challenging to find local alternatives. Hence, we decided to look for a manufacturer we could work with and who had similar ideals. It was challenging but we found one eventually.

Everything that you’ll find here are products that we use on ourselves and in our own home. We have tested these on ourselves, including our daughter, and on relatives and friends. What better way is there to test a product?

We intend to create a soothing and calming feel in your rooms and homes and improve your well-being by providing you with natural alternatives and which are reasonably priced (we hope).

Our products are all locally made in the Philippines and whenever possible, our ingredients are also sourced locally. We also support some groups like Green Earth and World Vision. By patronizing our products, you not only help provide jobs but also send our less privileged Filipino brothers and sisters to school.
