Growing up surrounded by gum trees on the banks of the Murray River, Sarah Murphy always fantasized that she was Purdey from The New Avengers. Wearing her Mum’s old Italian high heeled boots, Sarah would throw herself from her pony, leap into a tinnie, and row across the Murray, whilst simultaneously firing her brother’s spud gun to avoid all those prospective captors.
Who would have imagined this would lead to the creation of the delicious Bon Bon Soap range? Fast forward a few decades and well yes, that is exactly what Sarah is doing, as well as coming up with a few other precious products all with the same feisty romanticism and ethical ethos behind them.
Having worked as the buyer for the iconic Melbourne homewares store ‘Market Import’ for a number of years, Sarah decided to venture out by herself. Playing with the name of her great grandparents general store in Kerang, entitled Murphy Brothers, Sarah took on the moniker of Murphy & Daughters (she has a couple of gorgeous ones). It is from this general store, that Murphy & Daughters has taken inspiration with a modern interpretation of early Australiana fauna and flora. The first line of products was the instantly successful Bon Bon Soaps. Keeping with the modern interpretation of Australiana, the bright and joyful packaging, combined with the delightful array of scents, has seen this product whisk off the shelves from wherever it has been stocked, whether in Australia, New York, Paris or London.
