My name is Rachel and I'm a Brooklynite who is the creator and chef of Soapwalla. I started making luxury organic face and body products in my apartment kitchen to alleviate my painful sensitive skin rashes caused by lupus, a chronic, systemic autoimmune illness.

When I started Soapwalla, my objective was to make the highest quality products available, made with organic, vegan, food-grade ingredients, and never harmful or synthetic additives such as petrochemicals, parabens, phthalates, or sodium lauryl sulfate.

If I refuse to put something in my body, I shouldn't be putting it *on* my body, either.

I use natural oils, clays, powders, botanicals, and essential oils. Everything is made by hand in small batches (in my apartment kitchen - I'm always borrowing ingredients from my spice jars, refrigerator, and shelves) to ensure quality, freshness and the utmost attention to detail.

When I'm not in the kitchen making cosmetic culinary delights, you'll find me playing violin, composing original works, or practicing ashtanga yoga.
