Gregory Macdonald
Founder + President

Taking a bath to some may be a nightmare, to others it may just be a daily routine- but for Greg Macdonald, it is a way of life. After spending years and countless dollars on mediocre bath products, Greg founded Bathorium and set out to create premium bath soaks that not only give a unique experience for the bather but also a product that the user can benefit from both physically and mentally. Favourite Crush is Northern Sage Recovery and favourite bath bomb is CocoCreamer, the original bath bomb that started it all…

Mathieu Roy Chabot
Production Manager + Co Founder

Mathieu recently moved to the bustling city of Toronto in 2012 from Montreal and has found a new passion in people, lifestyle and bathing. With a keen eye for impeccable products and a love for innovation, Mathieu joined Gregory in the Bathorium adventure. What Mathieu loves about taking a bath is the "me" time, time to turn off the cell phone, turn off the television and focus on self-reflecting. Mathieu enjoys taking baths in total darkness with the light flicker of a candle, and a small stream cold running water. Favourite Bathorium bath bomb is J'adore Matcha with a little bit of BeRejuvenated Bubble Elixir.
