Our Story

Soap Stories is single women business, nestled in the quaint town of Pune, Maharashtra.

Soap Stories was born out of an addiction to soaps among other things. My mother loved soaps and perfumes. My father would always bring back beautiful soaps from his trips abroad for my mother. I guess the addiction to soap started when I was a kid.

I am extremely addicted to cold pressed plant oils, botanical extracts and essential oils, among other things. Even before I started making soap, I had a huge collection of plant oils and essential oil for my personal skincare routines. I love minimal and simple routines, as close to nature as possible.

 

And then I discovered soap making by accident and simply dived into it head on. Initially I made only for family and friends. Being a full time Banker did not give me much time to take this up fully. I still run a full time Investment Advisory and do this part time. Eventually, I realized that with cold process soap, I can control every aspect of what goes in the making. This meant, I can put my love for cold pressed plant oils, extracts, botanicals etc. to good use. And that’s how the journey began.

The soap bars are handmade using the ancient cold-process method and are carefully formulated to include skin-loving oils, nourishing butters, plant extracts, honey, milk, plant milk, herbs and various other additives to make our soaps nourishing, gentle and with a luxurious lather. I  love plant oils and use them to the maximum to take advantage of their skin nourishing and soothing properties. Hemp, Grape seed, Sea buckthorn, Rosehip, Apricot , Plum, Guava, Neem are some that we use. All cold pressed, unrefined and organic where ever possible.

 

Our skin care range is a blend of Earth Clays, Raw Fruits, Soothing Flowers, Herbs, Grains, Plant Extracts, Honey, Cold Pressed Oils, Pure Essential Oils and many other exotic, exciting, skin nourishing and healing ingredients. Every product is carefully formulated with love and care.

 

I am also committed to being low on waste as much as I can. All my labels, packaging etc are plastic free. 

 

I would love everyone to experience minimal, luxurious, yet affordable skin care. Without comprising on

quality and consistency. Its all about finding joy in the mudane.

 

I truly hope you love enjoying using all our products as much as I enjoy making them for you.
