My Soap Makers Journey so far...
"Soap making quickly became an obsession, a life-long pursuit of perfection of my craft."
Hello! My name is Catherine Gagne' and I create the finest quality, handcrafted soaps imaginable. I started making old fashioned lye soap in the mid 1990’s. I have sensitive, dry skin and I would break out in hives using many of the commercial bath soaps and laundry detergents. I learned to make my own bath soaps and laundry suds and I haven't had a problem since! Many of my customers have had the same difficulties. It's been my pleasure to help a great number of people who also have sensitive skin. I've also had excellent feedback from customers with more serious ailments, such as psoriasis and eczema, who have also been helped. I choose the oil blends I use very carefully, to ensure they are beautifully balanced or moisturizing and humectant. The bars are either unscented or lightly scented to ensure they are gentle enough for baby and will not cause skin irritation. I have to admit, soap making quickly became an obsession, a life-long pursuit of perfection of my craft. I'm proud to say I've only gotten better with age and more passionate about the history of soap making around the world and the regional differences and similarities from country to country.
