The soaping community is as diverse as they come, but it’s safe to say we all have one thing in common: we all like to “nerd out” when it comes to soap! Andrea Edgar took that idea step further in 2010 when she opened Soap4Squares, her soapy business that caters to fellow soapy nerds. Andrea has been a long time Soap Queen reader, and last year she was even one of 11 sponsored athletes for our first ever Bramble Berry Athletic Club. Read on to learn more about her soapy business and geek out over some totally cool soaps!
Soap Queen: How long have you been soaping for? And how did you get started?
I began soaping in 2010 while pregnant with my son. My skin became so incredibly sensitive during the pregnancy that almost everything on the market caused me to break out in hives! In my search for a gentle, natural, and fun cleansing option, I stumbled upon the Soap Queen blog and Soap Queen TV channel. I was intrigued with the idea that I could make amazing products at home, that were better for my skin, and a fraction of the cost of store bought soap! I dove in head first and haven’t looked back.
