Maker We Love: Hip Modern Soap


Carrie Robertson Co-owner


Tell our customers why your brand is the best 

We want our customers to have it all. We want them to feel like they can get everything they want out of a bath product from what we make. We want our customers to use our product and immediately be hooked.


What's your story?

John and I have always loved handmade soap and body products even before we started this company. We found that we could get soap that was fun/creative or we could get soap that felt good on the skin. We just couldn’t find one that was all of those things at the same time. We decided that if we couldn’t buy it, we would learn to make it. We never set out to start a business or even sell what we made. I think our friends just got tired of us making them take home soap that eventually one suggested maybe we should try to sell some. About two weeks after that, we set up a tent at the Bloomfield Saturday Market and haven’t quit selling soap since.



We live in Wilkinsburg


What product do we NEED to know and why?

Even though we are known primarily for bath bombs, we find that once they try out our body butter, they are hooked. We get more rave reviews about that one product than all others combined. It is a super hydrating cream texture that doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy or sticky.

In three words, why do you love Pittsburgh?

Small big city (I’m trying to convey that we are a city that has a small town feel?)
