Founding Story

Spinster Sisters’ founder, Kelly Perkins started making soap in the '90s with a simple goal: avoid toxic ingredients. As she said in a recent interview about shopping for skincare, “I don’t like to look at a label and have to go to Google to see what it is. That makes me think it’s not something I want to put on my body. I want to be able to say, olive oil, I know what that is!” (Passport Magazine). Kelly decided to make her own soap after reading up about soap making She made her first batch in 1994 and fell in love with the process. Eventually, she had so much inventory that she started selling it at craft markets on Colorado's front range. She couldn’t believe how much she sold to customers who had become more conscious of the ingredients they wanted to avoid in their skin care. By 2012, she had quit her day job to make skincare full-time as Spinster Sisters Co.
