Just when they said to wash your hands for as long as you can sing, Happy Birthday, what started as a party favor for her children’s birthday party, four years ago, has quickly turned into a full time business with clients in Hawaii and across the US.
Organic Soap Bakery
“I always had eczema and psoriasis, various skin ailments. I found when I used regular store bought soap, that my hands would crack. My friend had been making soap which I started to use – ingredients that were found in your kitchen – and I found my hands began to heal. I thought, I could do this.”
Today, Organic Soap Bakery incorporates all organic ingredients into the making of soap.
“For me, it was the ability to make something interesting, organic and unique.

As she has always been creative, she wanted to make something. Her friend had been making soap for the last few years, so Beatrice decided that she would gift soap as party favors. Make them fun for the kids, and maybe the kids would wash their hands – or at least, maybe they would want to wash their hands. She would make Ninja Turtle hand soap. Her kids were at that age when everything becomes a mess, hands included.
It worked. Green Ninja Turtle soap was a success. Kids loved it. Parents loved it. That was the beginning. Beatrice had found her next creative passion; creating artisan hand-made soaps.
“My whole life has been a creative process. I spent twenty eight years as a classically trained dancer and choreographer. I worked eight years as a producer with Romania’s first privatized television network, PRO TV. I love to cook. I thought, ‘what would I name a soap company if I was to make this happen?’ Ingredients were of the utmost importance. I wanted to use all organic ingredients.”
And so it was,
