Philo Soapy USA
Tell us about your business.I have more than 17 different soap designs, and each of my soaps have beautiful bright colors and amazing fragrances. My Popsicle line has 6 fragrances; Watermelon, Raspberry, Mango, Pina Colada, Pomegranate, and Champagne, my Ice Cream cones line has 7 flavors; Vanilla, Strawberry Kiss, Raspberry Power, Blueberry, Juicy Peach, Chocolate, and ChocoCoco. And finally, my little 2 packs of “Blackberry Pearl” soaps, and my very colorful 3 packs of assorted soaps. Party Favors and special occasion are also on the menu, just call and ask! After Sandy, I had to rethink my whole business Philo Soapy USA. I lost half of my inventory, and my workshop. Since it was my first year in business, I didn't have enough "background" for a loan so I am trying to think outside the box, and get help wherever I can find it to rebuild my workshop and eventually expend and get into wholesale. Witch is my main goal.
What makes your business stand out?The Design of each soap is unique, the constant variation in the inventory makes a frequent visit to my online store indispensable, new creations are always popping, my inspiration is everywhere, everyday.
What's the best business advice you've received?Don't give up your dreams, also a very good life advice.
