How Susan’s Soaps and More began . . .
Susan’s Soaps came about as a result of eczema I began experiencing on my hands and legs after the birth of my son, over 28 years ago. I had been to dermatologists, but nothing was helping a large patch of eczema on my leg.
One day I went into a natural skincare store and was sold a bottle of cream rinse which the salesperson mentioned that I could also use as a shaving cream. Several months later I realized that the patch of eczema was gone. It hit me how important it is what you put on your skin.
Earlier I had ordered a book on how to make soap, mainly because the pictures looked so yummy! I decided to give it a try. First for myself, then for gifts and finally for sale (at the urging of my local health food store owner.) I eventually added additional products and Susan’s Soaps & More was born.
. . . to Where Susan’s Soaps & More is today.
Today Susan’s Soaps and More is a home-based business that sells both retail and wholesale. I create aromatherapy soaps and skin care products for people who value natural, chemical & cruelty-free products that delight their senses.
I want the overall experience to be a balm to your spirit!
