Our Story

Born in Boston. Inspired by the world.


Our founder, Cy Harvey, was out there exploring the world’s coolest destinations before there were travel guides. A true wanderluster and nature lover, Cy lived by the motto “Explore everything. Keep the best.”and opened a small shop called the Soap Box to sell the unique soaps he collected on his travels. Fast forward to ‘71 and his passion project evolved into a global business - Crabtree & Evelyn was born.


Like everyone, we look a little different after fifty years, but our mission remains the same. To connect people and cultures by sharing the best beauty products, lifestyle accessories and stories from around the world. We’re also committed to giving back to the people and places that inspire us along the way with our Exploration for Growth program. The WAS Foundation receive 5% of all Bali Collection profits and this year we donated $35,000 to FLYTE, creating travel opportunities for students from underserved communities.
