About My Shop:
Soap That Makes Scents is a handmade bath and body company run by Canadian "transplant" Karina and her American-born husband, Richard. All of the high quality ingredients used in their soaps, lotions and lip balms are found locally in the NY Tri-State area.
At Soap That Makes Scents, we believe that using high-quality ingredients should not mean that we have to sacrifice low pricing for you.
We believe in making our products in small batches. With quick turnover, this means that you get freshly made items, each time.
And we believe in minimal, yet pretty, packaging. Your soap should be something special for you o
Behind the Scenes at the Shop:
Growing up, when most kids wanted to become ballerinas, or firemen, my standard answer to the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” was always “I want to be the boss.” When I hit my early twenties, I knew I didn’t want to work for someone else forever, I wanted to work for myself. After taking a soapmaking class on a whim I immediately fell in love with the idea of working with colors and blending scents; I’ve never looked back....and now my husband and I do soap making full time and both of us have quit our day jobs!
