Get ready to indulge in a bubbly tale of skincare bliss with Joy Soap Co.! This family-run wonderland of organic delights sprouted from a quest to heal dry skin and eczema. Frustrated by the lack of affordable options, Marisa Kohler dove headfirst into soap-making research. After some sudsy experiments and a dash of magic, a recipe emerged—skin-soothing, bubble-filled goodness that would make anyone swoon.
With cheers from friends and family, Joy Soap Co. set sail on its business adventure in April 2018. But this is no ordinary enterprise. It's a whole family affair! Husband Jason and the three Kohler kids lend a helping hand, from packaging products to sales on the market scene. This partnership is running a business and raising entrepreneurs all at once. Talk about multitasking!
Joy Soap Co. isn't just about making folks feel fabulous. They're eco-warriors too. Their packaging game is on point with recyclable and compostable materials. No plastic here—Mother Earth approves! And to keep their goodies accessible, they keep prices as low as possible because everyone deserves a skincare treat that won't break the bank.
Oh, and did we mention the warm fuzzies? Joy Soap Co. has a heart of gold. Ten percent of their profits go to helping those in need, near and far. For Marisa and Jason, it's all about giving back and teaching their kids the joy of compassion. Pass the tissues—this story just got sweeter.
Lessons learned? Laughter is essential. When your lip balm melts in summer, you embrace the humour and make an announcement that leaves everyone smiling. And staying humble and teachable is the secret sauce for success and building customer relationships. Those relationships are built with speedy apologies and top-notch service. The small business community? They're the dream team—kind, supportive, and always there to lend a hand.
But let's not forget the star of the show—the Horton Farmers' Market! It's the place where magic happens. Get ready to meet your skincare soulmates, make new pals, and pet some adorable doggos along the way. Watch for exclusive market specials on soap galore and tantalizing combo sets. Trust us; you won't want to miss out!
So, what's the founder's favourite product? That's like asking a parent to pick their favourite child. It's an ever-changing affair, but for Marisa, the eye cream, Tutti Frutti lip balm, and Island Vanilla lotion and soap hold a special place in her heart. Although, she reserves the right to change her mind because variety is the spice of life!
Pro tip time! Want your soap to last longer? Cut that bar in half. Use one half now and save the other for later. It's like having a skincare stash that never runs out. And don't forget to snag a soap dish for your shower—they're affordable and make your soap happy.
So come to the market and introduce yourself to Joy Soap Co., where family love and organic goodness collide. Together, they'll make your skincare dreams come true, one lather at a time.
