Good Clean Soap
Tell us about your business.I began creating soaps several years ago when my daughter was diagnosed with eczema and psoriasis. I began researching natural soap, properties of oils, and the use of natural herbs in skincare. Honestly, I was just a mother wanting to provide my daughter with relief without using the heavy chemical-filled creams and medicated soaps. After spending lots of time formulating, researching, and re-formulating, I created Plain Jane Soap which, at the time, was just called Court’s Soap. After seeing the results that Court had, I completely fell in love with the process of learning, creating recipes and sharing my gentle soaps. I soon began developing more skin-loving products, including skin-nourishing lotions, exfoliating sugar scrubs, and lip balms. Some years later (after much prodding from family and friends that loved the soaps), I decided to develop a small business in our cozy home workshop and Good Clean Soap began.
What makes your business stand out?What sets Good Clean Soap apart from others is definitely knowing exactly what my products are and staying true to that. GCS is unique in the fact that many of our soaps are infused with fresh fruit. Also our sweet packaging make our products really stand out. Isn't everything a little sweeter with a bow on it?
What's the best business advice you've received?Before you decide to begin your business be sure it's a business and not just a fun hobby.
