"The owner of Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve says her business actually started, by accident. Ida Friedman-Kasdan was just looking for a hobby when she stumbled on soap making. Now her products are shipped around the world."
"Our ingredients are USDA certified organic, which you will not find very often in skin care products. They are ethically traded, cruelty-free, sustainably resourced," explains Friedman-Kasdan.
"She says she still has to pinch herself when she comes into work, to think, all this started with a little curiosity in her home kitchen."
"There's a synergy here. It's quite amazing. There isn't a day I get up and don't like to come here," she says.
