I was a soapmaker for over 30 years. While my children were growing up I used to make natural soap and sell at local craft shows, festivals and farmers markets. There were not many making all natural soap back then. I liked researching ingredients and inventing recipes and it gave me chance to make money, get out and talk with many lovely people and most important stay home with my boys. A few years ago I developed a neuromuscular problem and since no one in my family ever learned the trade I was forced to start shopping. I had tried so many natural soaps but I was totally spoiled by my own soap and then I found your website. I almost didn’t buy your soaps because of the price. It was not that they were too expensive, I thought they were too cheap.
The ingredients you use are INCREDIBLE. There is nothing out there that compares. The base oils you use and all of the extras you add are expensive and I also know how much time it takes to make specialty soaps with vegetables, yogurt, infused oils and much more. These are time intensive recipes with wholesome ingredients that you sell at the same price or less than the simple soaps made by other companies. You know how they say when something seems too good to be true it usually is too good to be true, well I thought there must be something wrong with these soaps but being a curious soul I decided to give them a try.
As one professional to another you are a creative genius. It is obvious that this is not just a craft for you. So many soap companies are about sight and smell. Their soaps look pretty and smell nice but nothing more. You are a teacher and a healer. After six months I have converted my entire family. We have spent hours learning from your website and when we all get together there is always some conversation about the new Chagrin Valley soap that someone has tried. And not only the soaps, I think that we now use just about every product that you make. Between my siblings, kids and grandkids your products have cured dry skin, eczema, rosacea, acne, cracked lips, dandruff and I could go on and on. I can’t say enough they are a joy to use. I do hope your customers appreciate the exceptional quality of the products you create at a VERY affordable price. I know we do! From my family to yours God bless you all. PS Your mama is beautiful. Treasure her.
What a blessing she must be to you all!
