About Us

Who the heck am I & What am I all about

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by, my name is Jenn Hart, it is so nice to meet you. I am a current masters student of osteopathic manipulative sciences with a passion for creating change.

Let me tell you a little bit about The Nova Bar! The idea came from cleaning my entire room one day during quarantine and realizing how many bottles of lotion I had laying around. YIKES, it was one too many, you know the one sitting on your dresser with a few squeezes left, and the one that has been packed away in your suitcase since your last beach vacation...

Have you ever heard that,
“Plastic lasts for so long, every single piece of plastic ever made still exists, and will continue existing for at least the next 500 years.” (GreenPeace)
At this point I began to feel like I could do better!

And so the search began!! I found a few different zero waste lotion bars. However, I had no such luck in finding ones that had the ingredients that I knew were safe and beneficial for our skin.

My journey creating The Nova Bar began! As close to zero waste as possible, filled with ingredients that are sustainably sourced, plant based, beneficial for all skin types and needs, and its top allergens free. 

It took a few versions to nail down the final product (shoutout to my beta testers aka friends and family). But, we are finally ready to be in your hands.

Much Love and Happiness, 

Jenn Hart

 

P.S. If you have any questions/suggestions of other oils you would like to see in future bars, drop me a line. I want to work WITH YOU to create the bar you wish you had!
