Has been an expert in the beauty industry for more than twenty years with extensive advance training + color chemistry at Vidal Sassoon in London and the Aveda Institute in Soho, New York. She began creating natural skincare from botanicals and herbs when she developed adult acne in her early twenties and would later learn about soap making after her son developed eczema.
But, it was during the civil unrest in Saint Louis during late 2014 when Soaplife360 was born. Soap making became a distraction from the crisis our city was in at that time. So inspired by the people in the community, we began formulating recipes in my kitchen and naming each soap after their unique personalities and matching characteristics.
While attending local markets, the soaps began to invoke thought that would shine a light on stereotypes that persisted in our culture. The names had began to generate conversations that would later bring a lasting peace from the surrounding chaos.
We hope to continue to inspire people to reach greater levels of tolerance and remind them to appreciate diversity within our beloved city and throughout the globe.
