In 2010, Tracy Gunn, started the original company in her kitchen. After a devastating layoff, a single mom with 2 kids, she invested $32 into making soaps to support her family and turned that into a thriving business. In less than a year, Tracy was able to put her soaps in over 1,000 stores across the country. Aside from soap, UR Bath & Body’s product line has expanded into Bath Bombs, Sugar Scrubs, Bubble Sand and Shower Steamers with more launches on the horizon!
Why are we called U.R.?
The Bronx isn’t just the birth place of hip hop – It’s the inspiration behind the UR Bath & Body brand. While visiting a women’s homeless shelter in New York City, Tracy noticed the director greeted each woman that walked through the door with a “UR” affirmation. “You are strong”, “You are brave”, “You are fearless”, that inspired Tracy to create products to inspire a sense of self, naming each product after an uplifting attribute.
