In 1997, My mother began making soap in the kitchen of my childhood home. At first it was just a hobby - with molds, mixers, and cutters all made by my dad. But it soon took hold of my mother and, before too long, of all of us. When her workspace expanded from the kitchen to include all of the closets it was clear that my mother’s passion for making soap had become more than about the product. It had become about the ingredients. Just as we do today, my mother insisted on using only the highest quality blend of skin moisturizing ingredients to not only cleanse the skin but also improve its health and vitality – free of the chemicals, detergents, mineral oils, surfactants, and parabens that harm our bodies and our planet.
Soap for my family, was a craft – one that required inspiration and dedication. In 2000, my mother and I acted on these feelings and expanded her home business into a small retail store, where she continued to make each bar by hand and where I learned how to run our growing business. In a year’s time, we had outgrown our little shop and decided to move to our current location in downtown Melbourne.
We began to expand our recipes and our product line as customers confirmed our beliefs that people crave naturally derived health and beauty products that they can trust on their skin and for their families. Our name grew as the results came in – people simply loved what our products did for their skin.
