THE SOAPIO STORY
Here at Soapio, we believe there is a better way to do skincare.
My passion for creating bath and body products came from a lifelong battle with skin allergies and eczema. I believed myself to be allergic to soaps and fragrances but one day I learned that not all soaps are created equally. Here began my significant research and creation of traditionally made bath products which are gentler on the skin. With the birth of my first daughter in 2018, seeking flexibility in my employment, I decided it was time to share these products with New Zealand and Soapio was born.
All of our products are lovingly handcrafted in North Canterbury from the highest quality of ingredients. Our NZ based suppliers also have a strong focus on sourcing ethical and sustainable ingredients and we are always looking for ways to reduce single use packaging that we use in the creation and sale of our products.
If I'm not in the soap studio or chasing after my two beautiful daughters, you’ll likely find me in the kitchen. I have a passion for cooking and baking which does inspire some of my soapy creations. I also volunteer as a breastfeeding peer supporter. There is a huge shortage of support for families in our rural communities so giving my time to assist is really important to me.
After returning from maternity leave, I have also been looking at how I can help other women get ahead in their businesses too. You’ll now find some beautiful handmade products from other creators in the collaboration section.
If you want to get in touch, I would love to hear from you.
