About Us

 

Hello! I'm Elizabeth Jones, owner & creator at Soap & Sunshine Apothecary. Thanks for stopping by! 

I was an MK (missionary kid) for most of my childhood in a little African country called Ghana.  I always knew I wanted to be a business owner some day and I had notebooks filled with ideas and plans for the future. 

Fast forward to 2005 when we moved back to the States. I received my marketing degree from Indiana Wesleyan University and met my handsome firefighter husband in the process. We have two beautiful little girls and I decided to stay at home with them. Both of them have sensitive skin and I became very interested in making natural skin care. To make a long story somewhat shorter,  I started selling the products we were using to friends on social media, various markets and this website. In 2016 we opened our retail shop in downtown Alexandria Indiana. 

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. 99% 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!
