This is one of my favourite quotes. My name is Judy, and I'm the founder and soap maker of Flower City Soap Company. I am blessed to have a wonderful family who helps me in so many ways and a very special CEO named Zachary, who happens to be my very handsome grandson and is a ripe old 12 years of age! He offered to be my CEO when he was only 7 and he has wonderful ideas and I love asking his opinion on a new product! My beautiful granddaughter Amelia enjoys discovering what new product or design I've come up with and trying them out!
I found that I had a great passion for making soaps, balms and truly natural products that helped and nourished our skin while it delighted our senses. With this passion came the desire to do something good with it, so we are very proud and honoured to be a part of helping to raise funds for animal rescue sanctuaries and donating soaps to our local foodbank.
All our products are made by hand in small batches. Colours are derived from the oils themselves, clays, coffee or spices. It is very important to us that our products do NOT contain Sulfates, Parabens, Dioxane, Fragrance Oils (Essential Oils are natural), Triclosan or any other harmful ingredient.
We formulate our soaps to be gentle, yet cleansing...good for your body and the environment. Our "Beyond the Bathbomb" does everything a "regular" bathbomb does and more! Not only does it smell AMAZING (essential oils only), but the skin-softening oils make your skin feel like satin.
Our products are completely vegan and palm oil free, with the exception of our African Black Soap, as 75% of this bar is fair-trade, authentic Black Soap from Ghana and they do use Sodium Palm Kernelate.
We also use recycled and/or recyclable packaging wherever we can, to keep our footprint as small as possible. Our packaging is kept simple because, while many people value a product based on its packaging and well-known brand name, we believe that what's IN the packaging, and how good it is for the body and the environment, that truly makes great products.
"My passion is making gloriously, natural skin care...my purpose is to to use that passion to help in as many ways as I can." – Judy Whale
