Our Bars of Hope transcend the bathroom. By allowing our natural oils to invigorate your skin and help fight acne, fade scars, and diminish wrinkles, you are improving the well-being of people all around the globe. Shea butter that softens and educates, coconut oil that soothes and creates jobs, essential oils that refresh and empower. Bars of Hope create a movement for #NoMoreDirtyHands by allowing you to not only clean yourself, but clean the world.
At 17 years old, John Cefalu traveled to Kenya on a service trip expecting to be welcomed as a hero. After two weeks in Kenya, he realized that the real heroes were the people he met who cared more about each other than their possessions. Seeing this happiness, in spite their impoverished hygienic conditions, sparked an idea that he thought could change the world one bar of soap at a time.
With no experience, he started making soap in his dorm room and developed the recipe that we still use to this day Since that first trip, Health 2 Humanity has been able to provide people all over the globe with the opportunity to fight poverty and disease at the root. Using soap as a vehicle to develop people, he started a movement that not only creates jobs and develops communities, but cleans the world.
After an extensive history of international travel, community involvement, and youth leadership, Estenson partnered with Cefalu to build H2H into a duo-entity organization furthering domestic development and internatinoal impact. Combining her hard skills in business with her soft skills in cultural development, Estenson has been able to realize her life long goal of making sustainable impact through Health 2 Humanity.
Coming from a low income neighborhood outside of Seattle, Estenson has personally lived the H2H message of Hope, working to spread it all around the world. From deep seeded poverty, to poor hygiene, to exclusions from education, Health 2 Humanity's mission to spread Hope to individuals across the globe stands as a symbol that with enough belief and opportunity, we can see a world with #NoMoreDirtyHands.
