Hi, I’m Alexis.
I live in Parma, Idaho, with my husband, 4 kids, and a herd of goats.
In many ways, we are an entrepreneurial family. My two oldest children show goats at fairs, and my husband is working on his own start-up company.
I started making soap in my kitchen in 2017, after many failed attempts at finding product to help alleviate the discomfort of my daughter's dry and sensitive skin.
One day, I told my husband I wanted to throw away every bottle of lotion and bar of soap and start from starch with handmade soap. A few days later I had my first kit. Perhaps making it from scratch would be a bit more work, but I enjoyed providing the service to my family. We still keep lotion around the house, but my kids love the colorful soaps that help their skin feel better.
I wasn’t too far in my journey when I realized I always had excess soap left over. I started selling to friends and family, and grew enough to sell at local farmer’s markets. A niece and then a sister asked for soap wedding favors, and out of this grew a small business.
I make and sell custom, homemade soaps that are friendly on sensitive skin.
In 2020, I enlisted my sister, Erica. She had business experience from her own entrepreneurial ventures and was ready to take on a new project. She moved to Idaho in April of 2021, and is now my business partner/ candle-maker/social media manager.
