At Kiss Kiss Goodnight, we know how deeply mommas love. And we also know that, by the end of the day, all momma wants is a sleepy baby and a few moments to herself.
That’s why Kiss Kiss Goodnight products are developed with one goal in mind: a sleepy baby and a happy momma.
We use only gentle, natural ingredients, selected with a mother’s care and the knowledge of an expert formulator, which means that every ingredient is meaningful, and there are no preservatives, irritants or toxins in sight.
We’re here to help you create a comforting bedtime experience that relaxes baby and nourishes momma. So baby can drift off to sleep with ease. And momma can, too.
We embrace the dualities of motherhood: that it is the hardest thing we have ever done and also the most joyful, worthy venture we’ve ever entered into. That we are enough for our children, and that we need more than just ourselves to thrive in motherhood.
This is a hard job. Mothers everywhere deserve praise, love and support.
But they don’t always get it. And we don’t just think that needs to change. We want to be part of the solution. That’s why we are fiercely dedicated to supporting the education of mothers and girls around the world. A commitment to giving back is at the core of who we are and what we seek to create.
When we educate mothers, we give them the resources they need to take care of their families and themselves. When we educate girls—who grow to become mothers—we give them the tools to make the best decisions for their happiness and success. Through education, we help women build confidence, increase their choices and empower them to improve their lives, their children’s lives and the vibrancy of their entire community.
1. Our ingredients support women and education: We source our Kalahari Melon Seed oil directly from Southern Africa, where it makes a world of difference to the women who harvest it-- they use the money they earn to gain their own financial freedom; to support their children with food, clothing and shelter; and to send their children to school.
2. Secondly, we have committed to helping fund literacy education through Room to Read, an organization that supports literacy and girls’ education worldwide. Each full-size product sold provides 1 week of literacy education for a child. Every time you give your baby a Kiss Kiss Goodnight bath, know that your love and nurturing extends beyond your own child and flows to another.
3. We are committed to fostering positive and change-making dialogue amongst our community of mommas: We believe that change can only come about when we face and try to understand the problems that impact our world. That’s why we use our bedtime blog to share information that supports and uplifts mommas, and also to help you understand the issues that surround the education of mothers and girls worldwide (and how, together, we can make a positive impact!).
She’s the founder and formulator of Kiss Kiss Goodnight products.
Shelly created Kiss Kiss Goodnight based on her experience as a mother of three, her years of experience as a chemical engineer and her specialized training in organic skincare.
Kiss Kiss Goodnight is the product line that Shelly wishes existed when her children were newborns (but, of course, she didn’t have time to create it back then).
Shelly holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Columbia University, a Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University and an MBA from the University of Maryland. She has worked as a process engineer in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, and is a graduate of Formula Botanica’s organic skincare entrepreneur program.
Shelly wants to give mommas the peace of mind that comes from knowing they’re using pure, gentle and natural products on their children -- the same kind of peace of mind she knows her mother had, when Shelly was a baby in her native Trinidad and Tobago and her mother gave her coconut oil massages.
With the creation of Kiss Kiss Goodnight, Shelly aims to nurture those sweet, quiet moments that happen at the end of the day. She’s been a stay-at-home-mom, a work-from-home mom, a student mom, a corporate mom and an entrepreneurial mom and she knows the common thread-- the deep need to find time to relax.
Through the company, Shelly plans to give mommas a way to treat themselves, to wind down their own day using the same gentle care they show their children. And she plans to extend that gentle love and nurture around the world.
