I create unique art for men, women and children in the form of glycerin soap. We also specialize in custom wedding/baby shower favors/gifts.

Tell us about your business.

My soaps are created in small batches & with only the highest quality ingredients. I produce something for everyone; men, women and children. Key West by Palms Soaps also offers custom birthday, wedding and shower favors and wholesale orders. I was raised in tropical Key West, Florida amongst many tropical fruits and beautiful colors and my soaps reflect these scents and colors. Having always loving glycerin soaps & finding them getting horribly expensive I started creating them for myself. I learned how to make soap by researching online and trial and error. After my friends, family and co-workers kept asking me what I was wearing (it was my soap) or where did I get the beautiful soap in my bathroom and could I make some for them I started the process of correct labeling and packaging and started my business Key West by Palms. Key West for where I was raised and Palms after our dog that we lost to old age.

What makes your business stand out?

Many of our bars are one of a kind in that once the loaf is sold we do not recreate the same bar/loaf over and over again. Only a few of our bars are recreated and that is because of demand. Custom requests are honored at no additional charge and of course always welcomed. Our priorities are to provide beautiful, wonderfully scented soaps that our clientele will be elated that they purchased from Key West by Palms Soaps. Throughout each year we donate our products to many charitable organizations.
