After one of many sleepless nights in 2007, Artisanal soap-maker, Ana Martinez, stumled upon an article on lye soap. Intriguing her curiosity, she began to research lye soap. She discovered the amazing possibilities she could create with just a few oils, and her favorite herbs. Taking this new information, she began to buy books, and familiarize herself with mastering this craft. Her first creation was the Mango-Kiwi bar, which was a huge success. Slowly, she has created many bars; she officially became a business in 2010, and has sold soap since.
