Zoet, pronounced /zoot/, is the Dutch word meaning: sweet, soft, gentle, fresh and the good things in life. Bathlatier is a handy phrase for a maker or seller of luxe bath concoctions. If these two words together sound whimsically old-fashioned to you, you’re starting to see what Ilka’s going for. Her goal? To create an intoxicating line of apothecary products, rooted in a culture of quality craftsmanship, that combine rich nourishment and olfactory goodness in equal measure. Her process is artisanal from start to finish from formula-writing to packaging. And the unique scents and cleansing soaps she cooks up in the end are meant to benefit your overall sense of well-being just as much as your skin.
