A bit of history...
Arice's 20+ years as a Certified Massage Therapist and Spa Treatment Tech. with past experiences working at 5 Star/5 Diamond spas exposed her to lots of skin care issues and skin care products.  "I remember listening to my clients talk about how they wished they could afford to use spa quality products on a regular basis. That really got to me and I just knew I could create products that were just as good if not better without the huge price mark-ups."  It wasn't long before Arice went to work learning about different oils, butters and all kinds of skin healthy ingredients. 
"I often think about my late husband Mike and how supportive he was when I started out on this venture. When cancer took him from me I was devastated, but I knew he wouldn't have wanted me to give up my dream. I moved back to Humboldt County after being widowed and with the support of my incredible family, product development and experimenting (on humans only) began. It took a couple of years to get the products just right, but was so worth it."  Once the product recipes were perfected and up to Arice's standards, Humboldt Soap Company was founded. 
"My Mom passed away a few years later and I know in my heart that Humboldt Soap Company wouldn't have come as far as it has without her support and encouragement. My awesome Dad and amazing Sister are my anchors and constantly offer ideas, quality control, marketing assistance and their love and support as HSC continues to grow. I also feel like Mike and Mom are still a part of things and are watching and feeling proud."
HSC is a family owned and operated business and all of our clients are treated like family. We believe you deserve high quality skin care products at an affordable price and HSC makes that happen!
