Hi! My name is Catherine, but you can call me Cat!
I am the soap maker behind our small soap company located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
All of our soap is made in small batches using the cold-process soap making method. I use an original recipe created by me which includes quality oils, butters, fragrances and other additives to make the soap that our customers love!
I have been making soap since January 2008. We had been gifted a bar of handmade soap at a work "White Elephant" Christmas party, and after my husband used it, he immediately noticed a difference in his skin! It no longer felt dry or itchy. My inquiring mind immediately went to work to find out what made the difference. It was at that time I discovered all of the benefits of handmade soap!
Throughout these years, I have been making soap for my family and close friends. In January 2020, with the encouragement of my husband and a few close friends, I decided to increase my production to be able to share my soap with others. This was when Fern Meadow Soap was born.
I love making soap! Soap making is a science, but it's also an art! In addition to the benefits of handmade soap, I love the "art" in soap making. Because of this, I like trying out new fragrance or essential oils or new techniques/designs. From time to time you may see a different design or look on one of the fragrances you love. Don't worry--the look may change, but the scent will be the same!
THANK YOU for visiting our little soap shop. I hope you find some little luxury for yourself and for a friend!
