When people ask how I got started on my soap journey. I smile and tell them it really began when I was a child,but didn’t take fruit until randomly passing by a bookstore in the mid-90s and finding a book on handmade soapmaking.
As a child, well even as an adult I suffer from poor kidney function which really affected my skin making it extremely dry. Many years of medicated creams had no effect on me. All skincare we had access to was the commercially available brands. and although they are great cleansers, they just had no remaining moisturizing value.
So on a whim I decided to make my first handmade soap and, for the very first time, I lost the constant itchiness and the feeling that “my skin was too tight on me” feeling. I am sure many of you can understand how overjoyed I was!
We really started to get popular once our products were selected to be in the gift bags of the press and celebrities who attended GBK’s Oscars Gift Lounge. From that moment on we decided to branch out and grow a little larger and opened our first brick and mortar shop, which is located at 86 Albert Street, Winnipeg Manitoba. This also turned out to be a great idea so we are in the process of opening a pop-up shop in Vancouver at 2070 Alma St. We are a small family type business and we would love to meet you!
