On Thursday, April 4, the Snow College Business Club recognized the local business SoapCreek as their first annual Business of the Year. SoapCreek is a company that manufactures high quality artisanal skin care under the SoapCreek brand, as well as making products for other brands.
Roxanne Johnson, Vice President and Formulator for SoapCreek, explained how the business was first formed. “I was really looking for a more natural way to care for my children’s skin initially, realizing that so many mainstream products are actually very harmful.”
Johnson continued, “I started making some fabulous products and soon I was making them for friends and family, and then the local grocery stores and herb stores were hearing about and asking to carry it.”
SoapCreek was spotlighted last year, where they came and presented their business to the Business Club. Soon after, the Business Club had the amazing opportunity to tour their facility.
Referring to the opportunity to educate the Business Club about their business, Johnson said, “It was truly a joy to have the business students come tour our facility and hope to inspire others in the paths of entrepreneurship they will follow. We feel very honored and grateful.”
When asked about her thoughts after the banquet, Johnson remarked, “I was amazed to see all the kind people, the administrative staff, those who drove up from Richfield, etc. Thank you all. I feel like we have a community of people who really love to see everyone’s success and even be a part of their success.”
SoapCreek was also recently able to organize a way to send what they call their “soap ends”, which are about the size of hotel soaps, and send them to poverty and war-stricken countries. They are very excited to provide relief in volunteer efforts for the children in these countries by providing them with soap that can last a week or more per soap end.
