My Story

George from Dawn Organics


Hello, George here from Dawn Organics. People often ask me what got me into making the products I do, particularly soaps. I had suffered from severe eczema when I turned 15, my shoulders, neck, and back we're covered in red, blotched itchy skin and nothing helped or soothed the pain I was feeling


I had spent a lot of money over the years trying natural creams, soaps, body washes, no matter how natural & clean the ingredients list appeared to be nothing helped, in many cases they made it worse. So a few years ago in my late 20's, I decided to start playing around with recipe's with soap. At first they were just on paper, then when I built up the courage I then bought all the necessary ingredients. Boy did I make some shocking soap at first, it terms of softness. They only lasted a few washes. I didn't want to throw them out, I felt like they we're a big waste to do that, so I left them as hand soap and eventually tried them in the shower after they had cured


After first use, I felt an immediate calming feeling on my skin, especially the areas of problem with eczema. They didn't itch. Not uncommon for new products to give a placebo effect so I still thought to myself, eh, the other's did that too. After a week of use will be the real test. After about a week, My skin started to turn back into it's normal color. I was shocked as I hadn't seen that in over a decade. I then suddenly firmly believed in what I was doing, and a handmade no nasties approach was definitely the way to go for my skin issues


After a couple of months of using my Olive / Almond soap my eczema vanished. I haven't had eczema since. I have now been almost 4 years eczema free and going strong. Customers often ask what my favorite bars are, I personally love the unscented olive bars & the Coconut & Olive Lemon Myrtle bars they are gentle and mild


These days I am a confident soap maker, loving to play with different recipes, colouring techniques with natural clays. A lot of my recipes I think about before I go to sleep, as soon as I wake up after my coffee fix I begin to test batch! The double oat soap bars is one of them!


Thank you for reading! I always love to hear stories from customer's also, keep them coming.

Your videos are very informative and educative. Just one question! Where do you buy your essential oils and clays



Hi George.

I saw you on YouTube, on Elly’s Everyday Soap Making channel. I am impressed with your soap and admire your creations. My children and I suffer from skin conditions also and would love to be able to make soaps that are kind to our skin.

I wanted to sign up for your $59 online class. Are you still running this class? I noticed the class date is 2022.

Would love to learn from you.

Kind Regards
