Beautiful Handmade Glycerin Soaps

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name: Teresa (Kathy) Rojas, Key West by Palms Soaps

I was raised in tropical Key West, Florida amongst many tropical fruits and beautiful colors and my soaps reflect these scents and colors.

Having always loved glycerin soaps and finding them getting horribly expensive I started creating them for myself.  I learned how to make handmade glycerin soap by researching online, joining groups and trial and error.  After my friends, family and co-workers kept asking me what I was wearing (it was my soap) or where did I get the beautiful soap in my bathroom and could I make some for them I started the process of correct labeling and packaging and started my business Key West by Palms Soaps.  Key West for where I was raised and Palms after our dog that we had recently lost to old age.

My soaps are created in small batches and with only the highest quality ingredients.  I produce something for everyone; men, women and children.  Key West by Palms Soaps also offers wedding/shower favors and wholesale orders.  Throughout each year we donate our product to many charitable contributions.

During the winter months you will find us all over South Florida at vendor events where customers can see and smell what we have to offer.

Our priorities are to provide beautiful, wonderfully smelling soaps that our clientele will be elated that they purchased from Key West by Palms Soaps.

Many of our bars are one of a kind in that once the loaf is sold we do not recreate the same thing over and over again.  Only a few of our bars are recreated and that is because of demand.  Custom requests are honored at no additional charge and are always welcomed.

We only purchase our fragrance oils from Nature’s Garden and would not shop anywhere else because of their quality and prices.

I only use Natures Garden fragrance oils – attaching a photo of your Juicy Couture Type fragrance oil.

Bath Bombs and Luxury Soaps

fragrance oils1. What is your name and Your Company Name: Marlene Nicosia/Spa Girl

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? Meeting at a crossroad several years ago with decreasing demand for what I had been doing for the previous 35+ years (medical transcription), and also going to be relocating to the Chicago area as my daughter was having a baby and I would be full-time babysitter, I met with a couple of ladies who had successful soap companies and was awestruck by the concept of making handmade soaps from oils and lye. I had always been in love with essential oils and natural products and this was a perfect fit. I began my journey in 2009 into handmade. Although I have seemed to find my niche with bath bombs, my goal is to continue to add a KidSpa and SpaPure line that is fragrance-free with natural colorants, essential oils and beneficial clays.

3. What products do you make and sell? Bath bombs, luxury soaps, Kids Spa line including sugar scrubs, cupcake soaps, bubble bombs, glycerin soaps.

4. What are your business goals? We are working on our website and hope to have it ready in the next few weeks. I would also like to establish wholesale accounts for handmade soaps including our SpaPure natural line of products.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden? What are your favorite products from Natures Garden? I love the products, pricing and service from Natures Garden. We carry over 50 fragrance oils from Natures Garden. I love to check out the Best Sellers section and know when I’m adding them to my line; they are guaranteed to be received well by my customers and will become my best sellers. I have purchased soap molds, soap making supplies, and always pick up a few new fragrances with every order.
