Soapwalla was born in founder Rachel Winard's NYC kitchen one evening, after months of unsuccessfully searching for products that wouldn't aggravate her sensitive skin issues caused by systemic lupus, a chronic autoimmune condition that almost always affects the skin. Soapwalla products are pure, effective, and trustworthy. We are only as good as the ingredients we source. We partner with small farms to obtain the highest quality materials available without compromising our integrity or dedication to the environment. Rachel visits suppliers to ensure they share Soapwalla’s value structure of respect, authenticity, and transparency. Soapwalla’s team is wildly passionate about what they do every day: create goods that not only support skin health, but also their customers' — and the planet's — well-being. They choose quality over quantity and continually ask themselves: Will this make the best product? Does this minimize our environmental footprint? Will this support our local economy? Does this serve a purpose? Soapwalla products are made by hand in small batches in their Brooklyn, NY studio. They use sustainable, organically grown and even edible ingredients, and don't us questionable additives such as sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, pthalates, petrochemical byproducts, or synthetic ingredients. Soapwalla products are unisex and vegan, and they never, ever test on animals.
