“People tend to think of soap making as a process done in a scientific-style lab but our process is actually very similar to baking a cake. We take the ingredients, add some heat and stir, stir, stir.”

In an effort to bring back the lost art of elegant soap making, Briana started Scum Soaps. She reverted to old world techniques in order to make each and every one of her delicately scented bars, chock-full of the best, natural ingredients. And the production of her sudsy creations is a lot less reminiscent of high school chemistry than you might think, with the set-up looking a whole lot more like a crash course on baking. Except instead of flour and eggs, she's mixing lye with essential oils for a cleansing combo that's incredibly good for your skin (and smells great too!).
