About

How it all began

Who I am...
Hello! My name is Yvonne Dripps, and I'm a mom of three fun-loving, creative youngsters and the wife of bike commuting, user experience designer. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a former home economics teacher, I love making things from scratch. I’ve been an ingredients-scouring label reader for as long as I can remember. I have made homemade organic baby food, used cloth diapers for my babies, and have made homemade cleaning and body care products.

How I started to make soap...
About 12 years ago I took a cold process soap making class and was surprised to learn that the soap had to ‘cure’ for four to six weeks before I could lather up! My hobby took a backseat to childrearing and homeschooling, but I concocted lots other home and beauty products in effort to avoid harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients. And I like concocting homemade things anyway!😉

I enjoy making natural, cold process soap and sharing it with others so they can experience skin and body care products free of phthalates, parabens, sodium laurel sulfates, petrochemicals, animal testing. I also wanted to be more careful about what we're washing down the drain and be intentional about Eco--conscious practices.

Why I enjoy making soap...
Our skin is our largest organ. Ever since I learned that it can absorb much of what we put on it, I decided to make my family's balms and soaps. And I happen to REALLY enjoy researching ingredients, writing recipes, and getting a little creative with a used-every- day product like soap.

I love seeing friends and family enjoy my soaps and balms, knowing that they are natural, biodegradable, and earth friendly. I feel grateful to be able to donate 5% of profits to the community resources that enriched my family as well as worldly causes.

How I chose ‘Flourish’...
I have always concerned myself with cultivating a healthy environment to help my family grow and be well, choosing Flourish for my soap company seemed a perfect fit. This happens to be one of the dictionary definitions.
flour·ish
ˈfləriSH/
(of a person, animal, or other living organism) grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment

Giving back...
In effort to replenish resources and support the places that help my family flourish, I donate 5% of monthly revenue to a rotating cause: Children's Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota, Animal Humane Society, American Red Cross, Como Zoo, Hennepin County and St. Paul Libraries, World Vision.
Thank you to all my customers, family, and friends!!

Welcome to Flourish Soaps!
I use earth and sea clays, plant seeds, and fair trade organic coffee to color my soap, never synthetic dyes. I use the cold process method, which retains glycerine, in small, fussed-over batches. Because we have our preferences and sensitivities, I have formulated many types of soaps using wholesome ingredients. I really enjoy the process and hope you love the outcome!

If you did not unwrap the soap and need a refund, then I can reimburse you if you send it back to me. You will be responsible for the shipping fees.

Additional policies and FAQs
Allergies: Some of my bars contain shea and cocoa butter and almond oil, which I list in the ingredients. If you or your family members have allergies to these products or to latex or your, do not purchase the soaps containing almond oil or shea or cocoa butter. Not all of my soaps contain almond oil or butters, so please double check the ingredients.
