The story of ManSoap starts in the winter of 2015. Dana and Shann have a small family, with two teenage daughters. Like many teenagers, Anika and Kianna were finding it tough to keep acne under control.
After some investigation, we came to the startling realization that the very soaps we were buying to help our kids control acne were in fact causing their pores to be filled with chemicals. You see, most “soaps” you purchase now are not actually soap. Because they contain very little natural products and are almost all chemical based, they are actually detergent.
Shortly after that, our first batch of homemade soap was born. It was a simple, olive oil based soap, with no scent. Within three weeks our children’s faces were clear of acne. Both Shann and Dana also noticed their skin was significantly softer and free of acne.
We started to share our finding with friends and family. They started to use our soaps, and asked for more. In the summer of 2016 – ManSoap was officially born. While we maintain our presence in the Ottawa area, our online store also services those who are not in local vicinity.
The name ManSoap simply comes from the idea of an all natural, pure soap company starting from one man’s desire to help his children. Our soaps are made for everyone. Men, Women, children. Those who identify as binary beings. Everyone can use our soaps. To this end, we ensured that our signature scents are amazing for everyone.
