Pip & Lola's Everything Homemade
(aka Pip & Lola's Soaps & Sundries)
We (here in our teeny soaping kitchen) are working hard making magic to bring you the absolute best barely-scented Vegan and Vegetarian soaps possible.
We know that heavy scents are often a migraine or allergy trigger for people. These people often don't get to partake in smelly goodness and we think that is just plain sad. This is why we chose to specialize in lightly scented items. People with scent sensitivities (or just plain don't like heavy scents) deserve Soapy Love too.
“Hey, did you know that Pip & Lola’s is named after our two youngest children (of our 8 kids)? Pip and Lola are their nicknames.”
ONCE UPON A TIME...
There was a little girl who dreamed of making a living doing only the things she loves to do. For years she tried to decide on only one thing. Should she be an actress? A writer? A teacher? Should she do something crafty and creative? The poor little girl could not find one single thing that made her happy. She DID find MANY things that did. She couldn’t possibly do ALL of the things that made her happy, could she?
What to do? What to do?
“Get a real job,” people told her, but the little girl saw just how unhappy those people with “real” jobs were and she did not wish that kind of life for herself. Over the years she tried to follow the path that others before her had followed and she was always left feeling sad and empty. She grew and had children of her own and wished for them to see that life was not just about survival but about true happiness. How could she show them something that she was not doing for herself?
One day, she decided that she had had enough. She was going to follow her bliss. So that same little girl decided to do ALL of the things that made her happy. She was an actress, a writer, a teacher AND she gleefully made beautiful little soaps with her own two hands. And she lived happily ever after.
We make soap. Lightly scented soap.
We strive to make the absolutely best soap on the market. Now, we know that most soapers make all of their goodies heavily scented and whatnot and, trust us, we considered it because MOST other soapers make their stuff that way. In the end, we decided that we would rather focus our energy making the absolutely best handmade “barely-scented” soap anywhere in the world because folks who are scent-sensitive deserve to have Soapy Goodness and lots of it.
We are getting pretty close.
