We are a small-batch manufacturer of artisan shower products formulated with plant-based ingredients to create an exhilarating, sensory experience with the beauty of an artisan touch.
We’re a small manufacturer of earth-friendly specialty shower products. We got our start in 2018. Through our making process, we beautifully handcraft luxurious shower steamers and artisan soaps. We manufacture in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. Our shower steamers are our most popular product. We make steamers using aromatic blends that linger throughout the shower air. People love them!
As a Latina- and woman-owned small business, we value employing local community members. We believe the products we make should be as self-affirming and productive for the people who work to make, package and ship them as the products are to our customers. We employ people from the community to earn a fair wage and thrive within our company. We like to say that when you buy lujo bar, you are “powering” the community.

In 2018, lujo bar’s owner, Ivonne Padilla, set out to use her collective talents, experiences, and network to build a creative brand that would do meaningful work in the community. With the help of advisors and volunteers, they developed a strategy to create, operationalize and bring to market the lujo bar line of artisan shower products.
