Lotion Applicator & Mobility Aid

The bakslap story

Safe body. Clean hands.
Great cause.

G’day, I’m Raph; keen Aussie surfer and lover of the great outdoors. It was the tragic loss of my beautiful sister Tess to melanoma skin cancer at age 31, that inspired me to create bakslap.

Our lotion applicator solves the problem of trying to apply lotion to hard to reach places...like the middle of your back!

Originally conceived to enhance sun protection, the bakslap has evolved into a multipurpose tool. Its versatility includes skin care lotion application and exfoliation, making it a perfect accessory for your shower routine. Today, it is trusted and utilised across various sectors, including hospitals, dermatology, aged care, home beauty, and sun care.

Our growth is fueled by our core mission: Health and Community, the very reasons bakslap was born. This commitment shapes everything we do. Explore our story to learn more...

Collaboration with Amazon Australia

In 2022, our team were honoured to feature on the cover of Amazon Australia's first SMB report. It detailed how we and others, are harnessing the power of online stores and export opportunities.

"Starting to export our products was about far more than an increase in customer base and revenue, it was about spreading our brand message further than just Australia, to as many people as possible around the world. Amazon allows us to effectively achieve this, which is why we jumped at the opportunity to join." - says Raph

Our collaboration also included this video.

Volkswagen Partnership 

Recently, bakslap formed a partnership with Cricks Volkswagen, Sunshine Coast with a brand new Volkswagen Caddy Van helping to promote our shared message of sun safety.

“The initiative with Australia’s Biggest Bakslap takes the sun safety message all over the country which shows where a simple idea can take you. And for Raph and his team, we know the new Volkswagen Caddy will help make the journey they are on even easier,” Dean Stuart, Dealer Principal.

New Project! In 2014, we’re excited to collaborate on a new project. Offering a special, locally-inspired gift pack with car sales. This partnership isn’t just about promoting safety in your VW and outdoors; it’s a heartfelt tribute to Tess and Finny - a Cricks team member that also passed from melanoma.

Bought 2 of these for my mum who has trouble with dry skin and being able to apply on her back and legs. The back slap is working well for her and she is able to apply her creme without any strain. Construction - it is very sturdy and it will last forever.
My mum is very happy.
