My name is Shayla Gauthier, and I am the founder of Black Gold Soap Company, which was started in 2016.
My first exposure to homemade soap was from a friend who started creating cute melt and pour bars and sharing them with me. She moved on to creating cold process soap from scratch, and as she became hooked, I was able to see more and more of the techniques, scents and colours she was able to use to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind soaps, bath bombs and shampoo bars.
Fast forward a couple of years, after a busy period of my life, and here we are! Black Gold Soap Co. is currently in its infancy and more of a hobby right now than a business. I’m currently working on building my repertoire of soap making skills and experimenting with different recipes, and I hope to help Black Gold make its debut at some makers’ markets this holiday season!
PS – For those of you who are wondering, my friend is still soaping away. Her name is Andrea and she’s the face behind Rebel Ridge Soaps!
