OUR BRAND STORY
Never complicated, effortlessly effective.
Little Barn Apothecary believes in the luxury of simplicity. We take inspiration from the earth and the raw beauty of its natural elements to provide unique formulations designed to evoke a feeling of well-being. Our products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and truly all-natural. Each botanical ingredient is selected by hand and each product is carefully crafted in small-batch apothecary tradition in our micro facility in Atlanta, Georgia. No synthetic or “filler” ingredients will ever be used. We always want you to be able to turn your box over, look at the ingredient list, and feel good about everything that you’re putting on your skin. Uncomplicated products with real results. Little Barn wants to invite you to slow down, take a few minutes for yourself, and create a luxuriously simple self-care routine that works for you.
MEET OUR FOUNDERS
Little Barn Apothecary was created in 2015 by founders Brad Scoggins and Joshua Morgan out of a shared passion for all things natural, holistic, and simple. Prior to LBA, Joshua spent 16 years working as an executive in the luxury beauty and spa industry in cities all over the country. Brad, a former biology student, grew up in the small farming town of Cordele, Georgia, and holds a background in hospitality, marketing, and brand management.
Little Barn was born out of a melding of these two backgrounds, small-town and metropolitan, beauty and biology, and a desire to create an alternative to the chemical-laden self-care products that flood today’s market. What began as an at-home kitchen experiment to find a natural, homemade remedy for symptoms of psoriasis soon turned into the Lavender + Frankincense Original Oil, LBA’s very first product. After sharing the formula with family and friends, the pair were met with enthusiastic requests for more, and the idea to turn their at-home passion project into a full-fledged business was sparked.
Little Barn officially debuted to the public as a line of core products in January 2015 and has grown rapidly since. Warehouse, marketing, and sales teams were added to the mix to help keep up with the brand’s growing demand, but the process and philosophy behind Little Barn remain constant. Each botanical ingredient is carefully hand-selected by Joshua and Brad for its natural healing property and intention. Every product is crafted in small-batch apothecary tradition with recycled glass bottles and minimal packaging. Transparency persists as a core value of the brand and every ingredient and its purpose will always be communicated so you can trust that what you’re putting on your skin is safe, ethical, and completely and wholly good for you.
