The Mother In-Law

I am Cecilia Davoren, originally from Acapulco, Mexico; an ocean woman living in Arkansas. I have been married to my wonderful hubby Marty for 23 years, and together we have five children and six grandchildren.

My journey in soapmaking started back in 2013. What I love the most is doing the research of all natural ingredients, their properties and the way I can introduce them into our products. It has been so interesting for me that it led me to the path of aromatherapy certification which has proven to be so useful for the creation of our products.

Liz and I love making products that are not only nurturing for your skin, but also soothing to your mind. I hope you like our products, and please ensure on giving us your feedback as it is the best way for us to excel on our customer service.

The Daughter In-Law

I am Elizabeth Davoren, originally from Palmdale, California but I moved to Camden, Arkansas in 2002. It was here that I met my husband, Nick. We have been married for 10 years and have three wonderful daughters.

After nearly ten years of being a stay at home mom, I decided to embark on this business venture with my mother-in-law, Cecilia. She had been making and gifting handmade soaps for a couple years, and after moving back to Arkansas, we began making them together.

I started to encourage Cecilia to start selling them. She asked me to join her and we started making them out of her home and selling online...and here we are a few years later with a store front, having added on to our line: body butters, bath salts, sugar scrubs, lip balms, lotions, foaming soaps, body washes, beard oils, and more!
