NJ native opens business featuring bubble baths
Amidst all obstacles, Javier Folgar, a NJ native, opened TOA Waters, offering a unique line of premium bubble baths for the rugged individual. The company will operate virtually, providing nourishing, “brawny scented” bubble baths.
Getting to the point of virtually opening his doors was no easy task. Suppliers were short on stock, banks were hesitant to offer start-ups lines of credit, and there were massive delays in shipping.
Folgar currently serves as the Director of Communications for Bat Conservation International, an organization dedicated to ending bat extinctions worldwide. He received a B.S. in Marketing from Rutgers University and earned an MBA from Montclair State University.
TOA Waters, named after a river in Cuba to honor Folgar’s heritage, began accepting orders this fall in time for the holiday season. The bubble bath products use whole milk, botanical extracts, b-vitamins, and much more. For more information, visit TOAwaters.com or facebook.com/TOAwaters.
