Our Story

 

Hi! I’m Elizabeth, owner and creator at Soap & Sunshine Apothecary. We are so thankful that you took a moment to read our story.

It all started with a problem, my girls had really sensitive skin and allergies. Conventional soaps, lotions and prescribed creams just weren’t cutting it. After years of research, I discovered that most of the ingredients I was finding in our products were not only unnecessary, they were part of the problem.

I started experimenting with simple, nourishing ingredients and methods for making skin care that have been used for centuries. It turns out that just like food, less processed is always best. I shouldn’t have been surprised.

As I shared my products with friends and family the demand grew, and grew… we went to markets, opened an online store, and then in 2016, a retail store.

I wake up every day excited about the future, passionate about this business and grateful for the opportunity to run a company that makes high quality skin care for our friends and customers. 

All of the products in our shop are made by us or other local makers. We use local ingredients (like beeswax) whenever possible and take pride in producing every single product with care (Our shea butter is brought to us by family straight from Ghana). We are always dreaming up something new, so stop by and experience our unique store!
