Shopping for the first bath products for her now 1-year-old daughter was an eyeopening experience for Leigh Byers, who examined labels in stores and wondered, “What is this stuff?” Her husband’s suggestion: Make soap at home with only the ingredients she wanted.

Byers’ creations with olive oil, shea butter, goats milk and honey are now the main attraction at her just-opened Capitol Hill shop, Hunnybunny Boutique (311 8th St. NE; squareup.com/market/hunnybunnyboutique), which she envisions as a place for anyone else interested in “weaning off of chemical stuff on our skin.”
