Salt Roots Soap Co. was officially founded in 2014 by Stephanie & Shani. Friends for 10 years, gypsies at heart and creative souls, they became friends while their families navigated through the adoption process of their beautiful daughters. With Shani, soaper extraordinaire for 14 years living in Big Sur with her family . . . and Stephanie, jill of most trades, designer and soaper for 5 years living in Santa Cruz, the dream of doing what they love became a reality… each of their families put roots down in the beautiful Central Coast of California and so did Salt Roots Soap Co.
Shortly after Salt Roots Soap Co. began, they took on a third incredible partner! Leona! She is their So.Cal. gal! Leona and Stephanie met almost 20 years ago as co workers and became good friends. Two peas in a pod and double trouble is what they were called! Sadly they lost touch but through the years the stars continued to align. After all the lost years they found each other again only to learn that we had an amazing journey that mirrored each other in many aspects of life. The most surprising discovery was that they both have incredible children who have autism, and, wait for it . . . yes, they both make SOAP! Their children inspire us and our desire to push on as we make time to do what they love.
