From the new owners:
We are a Christian family-owned company in SE Minnesota, who began making soaps in 2003 for our own health needs, selling them in our store and giving them as gifts. Who would have thought my meandering paths as an outdoor photographer and author, (www.LisaLC.com), would lead our family to the untried, unbeaten path to our soapmaking?
Day after day, no matter what trail I wandered off from, I always came home with sunburned or windburned skin. After years of trying to find a solution to my skin sensitivity to commercial soaps, my husband took up studying aromatherapy and the art of making soaps for me. We called our small soap line, The Socialite Soap Company, and I started laying out a book series based on characters of a fictional Minnesota small town, set in the 1800's, known for its soap making. Each character of the town has a soap named for them, and there are novelty items planned, but for now it's soaps and books. Behind the fictional soap town, is Lisa Loucks Christenson, her husband David, and daughter Emme, a thirteen year old artist who will create her own soap line based on her anime character line, Syche the Dragon and friends. It will encourage her to sell her soaps and include novelty drawings, or inserts in the soaps to collect.
Please call us if you have any questions at (507) 405-2069; soon there will be a toll free number as well on the site.
I expect we'll have the first revision of the website completed by the end of March 2013.
We realize that Cindy, as founder of Soapourri, will forever be the spark for our success, and we want to carry on the great name she has built.
We look forward to meeting you!
