About Muddy Mint
Hi! I'm Simi. Welcome to Muddy Mint!
I started making soap for myself, as a way to relieve my dry skin, after trying out some handmade soap I had purchased on Etsy. In 2016, that hobby became a business and Muddy Mint was born. Today, I work as a full-time soapmaker and small business owner.
I am a small-batch cold process soap maker. I use original recipes and make everything by hand myself. I only use high-quality natural ingredients such as pure essential oils and natural clays and plant-based colorants. All my products are palm-oil free, as sustainability is at the heart of my business. With over 42,000 followers on Instagram (come check us out @muddymint!) and over 1,800 five-star reviews on Etsy, you can expect a high quality product that has been thoroughly tested. I absolutely love what I do and I hope it shows!
In May of 2020, I hired my first employee (her name is Jenny and she is amazing!). She is in charge of all shipping and is the one that wraps up your packages, like a gift from a beloved family member (I stole that from one of our reviews). She also makes all the clay masks and sugar scrubs, in addition to many other tasks.
In January of 2021, I hired my second employee! My boyfriend, Troy, is joining Muddy Mint on a part-time basis. He will be helping with a lot of the behind-the-scenes work, like bookkeeping, inventory management, and growth management. In 2020, we grew five times (thanks to you!). That's a big jump and we're working on a lot of fun projects to help us sustain that growth.
Muddy Mint will always stay true to its roots: all-natural, palm-free, small batch skincare... but, you all seem to love our soap so much, that we'll be expanding, while still keeping these principles at the core of our business. Your packages will always be carefully wrapped and the soap will always be lovingly made.
Thanks for reading about us!
