About bakslap

bakslap is a simple and effective lotion applicator, that allows you to apply to those hard to reach places like your back, and your body without the messy hands.

The creator of bakslap, Raph McGowan, is a local surfer and big lover of the great outdoors. It was the tragic loss of his beautiful sister Tess to melanoma skin cancer at age 31, that inspired him to create the bakslap. Raph is passionate about keeping Tess’s memory alive and determined to prevent other families from experiencing such a devastating loss. bakslap hosts community events and fundraisers in support of melanoma cancer research and raising awareness of melanoma and sun safety.

After a long history together, bakslap proudly supports Melanoma Institute Australia. From every purchase of bakslap the company donates $1 to support the vital research they conduct to find a cure.

  • Absolutely over the moon with the hamper I sent from NZ to my mum in Brisbane. Libby was so helpful and went above and beyond to make sure the hamper arrived in time for Christmas. The personal service, care and attention and customer service experience was exceptional, I will certainly be using Hampers To Go in the future. Thank you so much

  • Libby at Hampers To Go went the extra mile to customise a hamper for a 40th birthday gin-lover! We are interstate and really appreciated the customer service and willingness to help. The birthday girl loved her specialised hamper and all the delicious locally sourced accompaniments included. Definitely recommend this small business.
