I started making soap in 2000 to balance my cerebral-focused academic life. By 2004 my friends were starting to get sick of getting soaps for every birthday/Christmas/you name it. So, naturally, I went into the soap business. Since I come from the Mediterranean I try to make soaps similar to the ones available when I was growing up. The soaps I make are all olive oil based. This is a very typical Mediterranean soap that can be found all over the region. I infuse each soap with ingredients that come from the region such as lavender, rosemary, lemon and illite clay... but also with healthful ingredients that come from other places, including tea tree, coffee, and shea butter. Please get in touch if you want to know anything more, or if you have any questions about soapmaking!
