Roshan, the owner and artisan of Soaplicity, unintentionally started her bath and body journey by making cold-process soap for her and her family due to the increasing allergies they were experiencing with commercial products. She had become extremely frustrated at not being able to find facial, bath, and body products that were truly all-natural, which she felt in her gut to be the answer to their skin issues.
Since she couldn’t find what she needed she decided she would create them and began researching everything she could on the therapeutic properties of butters, oils, clays, herbs, and essential oils. She learned how to safely make cold-process soap and then formulated and made her first soap, Oasis, for her son who was plagued with psoriasis. Everyone was astonished when his psoriasis was gone in three days of use.
The relief this soap provided her son then encouraged her to make a facial soap and scrub for herself. She then formulated Soaplicity’s #1 best-selling soap, the Euphoria Facial Bar, and it’s accompanying Time Warp Facial Scrub to help her with her maturing skin. The results when she used them were so instant and amazing she gasped. Then, she got mad. She had been spending hundreds of dollars on commercial products that didn’t work half as well and where loaded with harmful chemicals. Looking at the results in the mirror she realized that products like hers were needed. It was at that moment her purpose and passion were lit, and Soaplicity was born.
At its start, Soaplicity was only formed to help family, friends, and a few customers at farmer’s markets and tradeshows with the hopes of making a little extra cash in the summertime. All products were formulated, tested, and created in Roshan and Tom’s (her husband) dedicated basement. She found great joy in helping people love their skin again. As it turned out, many people were looking for truly all-natural facial, bath, and body products, too. Soaplicity grew so fast over the first nine months, that they came to the point where Roshan had to choose between her “regular” job with a steady paycheck or jumping all-in with Soaplicity. After much discussion and Tom agreeing to take a second job to help fund the venture, they took the leap and have never looked back.
Today, Soaplicity is located on Main Street in Pleasant Grove, UT, where all products are still handmade on site and in small batches to control quality. They have 5-6 employees of college-age or older who make product, manage sales, complete internships, and help fulfill orders that ship all over the world. Soaplicity’s mission is to create superb, industry leading, 100% truly all-natural facial, bath, and body products made with only the finest sustainable ingredients available. Soaplicity promises you will never find artificial colors or fragrances, microwave processes, paraben, sulfate, silicone, formaldehyde, gluten, or cruelty-testing in any of its products.
