DigitalSoaps was started by me, Chrystal Doucette. I started my company in January 2009 on a whim. When you buy a soap from DigitalSoaps, you are supporting a small business and you are supporting the original artist of these types of soaps. Geek soap has been my full time job since November 2009, before the genre even existed.

My inspiration for the business started with memories from elementary school. When I was younger, my dad took me to Computer City. A trip highlight included the chocolate 5.25-inch floppy disks the store sold. With a desire to relive my past, I checked online to see if anyone still sold the chocolate disks. I didn't find any. But during my research, I found plenty of chocolate molds shaped like electronics. This discovery sparked the idea of making soap. I was already a fan of handmade soap, so the two ideas merged well.

My first video game-themed soap, a PlayStation 2 replica controller, received so much attention, I decided to start making more video game controller replicas. Soon, I started making my own soap molds. This is because the things I wanted to see - molds for NES controller soaps, for example - didn't exist yet.

Before soap, my passion was journalism. When I started my business, I was working as a daily newspaper reporter.

My geeky soaps got a lot of press, though, and pretty soon I was the one being interviewed. It wasn't long before I was able to leave the 24-7 world of news reporting for a more empowering existence.

Now, with the advent of 3D technology, I am able to bring you brand new designs for soaps that couldn't previously exist in the real world, with stunning detail. The 3D Pokeball soap is a prime example.

No matter the shape of the soap - controller, cartridge, unicorn, Tardis - ingredient quality remains one of my primary concerns. I use micas for colorant whenever possible. My soaps are made without sulfates, and the palm oil is only sourced from companies that comply with the RSPO. The soap is made with food-grade oils, is not tested on animals, and is soy free. All ingredients are vegan.

Another component of quality is detail. Because I make my own molds, I am able to bring you richly detailed soaps that are often used by customers as display pieces. Most of the Pokemon for our Pokeball soaps are hand-painted locally, which is why you won't these beautiful pieces anywhere else.

Favorite video game-related possession: I met the original artist for the Mega Man II cover art at Portland Retro Gaming Expo. I bought a giant signed print of the cover art and had it framed in gold. The result is hilariously awesome.
