The People’s Soap Company started after founder Rachel Potucek’s friends and family fell in love with a batch of handcrafted homemade soap she made them as gifts for Christmas. As most name-brand, mass-manufactured soap are wrought with chemicals, Potucek knew the simpler handmade soaps she made were cleaner, simpler and free of chemicals.
While researching handcrafted soap recipes, Potucek found a lot of handmade soaps are made from palm oil, which is responsible for the degradation of the rainforest. With that in mind, People’s Soap was created to shower the people with natural, handcrafted soap made with ethically-sourced whole oils and butters, being mindful of the responsibility we have to the planet and its future.
Since its founding in 2014, Potucek has been featured in the Los Angeles Times and profiled by Etsy in its “Meet the Maker” series, and has produced soaps for film studios, clothing lines, and sells her soaps around the world to museum gift shops, boutiques and even an olive ranch.
She is proudly partnering with local farmers and producers across California to raise responsible ingredients and she is working with at-risk youth to train them in career pathways at her Santa Ana, CA soap shop.
