Etta and Billie
After years of pushing paper around in corporate America, feeling deeply unsatisfied and utterly uncreative, Alana found her calling through a random gift. In 2006, she received a book on soapmaking from her mother and everything changed. She discovered her creativity and passion in the process of whipping up body care for friends and family in her San Francisco kitchen.
In 2009, she founded Etta + Billie, a natural artisan body care company with a mission to bring nourishment and satisfaction into daily routines with delicious food-centric aromas and kitchen worthy ingredients. She believes that organic ingredients are better for our skin, our farmers, and our planet. Etta + Billie donates a portion of our profits to local food banks and human rights organizations because we want to do our part to make the world a more equitable place and everyone should have access to quality food and drinkable water.
Etta + Billie products have been featured in publications like InStyle, Elle, Sunset, The Los Angeles Times, Popsugar, and Refinery 29. Her company is a certified Green Business in California. When not in her soap kitchen, she's often cooking with friends and family, honing her cocktail making skills at home, chasing her toddler around the playground or dreaming up her next food-focused travel adventure.
