Who We Are
We are a Natural Handmade Soap Factory and Outlet Shop located on the beautiful Monterey Bay in California.
It all began in 2001, in the kitchen of a little Pacific Grove Victorian house, when my mother and I created a small line of natural handmade soaps based on our favorite foods and scents. One evening we took our soaps, lotions, and decorative gift packs to a local women's group and within 45 minutes sold over $500 worth of product. It was then - that we realized we had something special. We began selling our wares at the local Farmer's Market and in the first year were approached by a woman who wanted to know if we could produce 10,000 bars of soap. After a slight hesitation, I said - "why, yes - we could do that". The woman owned a natural spa product and education company that serviced high-end resorts and spas around the country and wanted to augment her services with handmade soap. From that point on I developed the Private Label division of our company in a converted garage in my home where I started producing 2-3,000 bars a month for luxury resorts. Our clientele later expanded to include wineries, lavender farms, and skincare companies. In 2014 we moved the operation to a 2000 square foot commercial space in Sand City where we create all of our products and feature our Outlet/Gift shop.
We are a company committed to creating quality natural products that are biodegradable and gentle on the earth. Our products are registered with the Safe Cosmetics Campaign database for consumer safety and we’ve been a member of the Handcrafted Soapmakers and Cosmetics Guild for over ten years. The Guild is a non-profit trade organization that promotes a strict code of ethics that include Good Manufacturing Practices and accurate labeling. We never test on animals, only on willing human beings.
