The Okie Soapy Soap Shop, based in Okehampton, Devon produces luxury bath and body products, these include traditional cold process soaps & bath bombs with more products being added to the collection soon! All products are handmade by the owner, Gemma. They are made in small batches from carefully selected raw ingredients that are very kind to your skin.
Selling bath and body products within the EU means adhering to legislation which involved a lot of time on product research and funds to obtain the relevant legal paperwork. With a low starting budget The Okie Soapy Soap shop was launched on 4th July 2014 with just 8 varieties of cold process soap. On this date Gemma launched her website & facebook page which has since gained over 4,000 likes. Gemma now has her products stocked in a shop, Rockin’ Beads situated in the heart of Okehampton town in the Red Lion Yard.
Gemma’s vision is to have this become her main job and the next goal is to have a workshop so she is able to produce & store more stock. Gemma currently has a crowd-funding project running to enable her to launch a new product collection & to have her products approved by The Vegan Society so they can carry the official logo. In return for making pledges towards the project Gemma is offering some brilliant rewards, take a look here for more information: crowdfunder.co.uk/the-okie-soapy-soap-shop-product-development
