Meet Roxana Rosmanitz
Roxana has started her natural soap making adventure 6 years ago with two of her cousins. Roxana started looking for a new hobby which would offer her a way to experiment and use her creativity, and a passion for natural products. It wasn’t long until she fell in love with soap making after remembering her Mother make it during her childhood. Since then she has been experimenting with different types of soaps and ingredients, and she still loves to create new types of soaps. She loves to make natural soap for herself and to gifts her soap to family and friends. Since using natural soap, she has seen a significant improvement in her skin which doesn't feel as dry and flaky as it did before creating her own soaps. She is hooked! She gets a lot of pleasure from teaching people about cold process soaping and has been organizing natural soap classes for 3 years, teaching people how to make their own soap.
