Meet the Maker

Karla Suarez, founder of Soap AddictSoap Addict was born from my passion for handmade soap and high quality ingredients. 

I became a self-proclaimed ‘soap addict’ in 2005, when I began collecting handmade soap from all over. It was my favorite souvenir while travelling, and I always stopped to sniff the soaps at farmers markets and craft fairs.

As a maker by nature, I quickly became curious how to make my own soap. So I bought a book and off I went to teach myself how to make amazing cold process soaps.

At first it was just a hobby, one that my friends and family loved to reap the benefits of. But after several people told me I should sell my soaps, I decided to give it a try.

In 2010 I left my marketing job to make soap full time, and Soap Addict was born.

In 2011 I had my first baby, and the soap business took a back burner. 2 more babies later, and making soap was officially on hold for a few years.

I started a blog in 2018 to share my many recipes and tips for living a healthy and eco-conscious lifestyle. I have created tons of amazing DIY beauty recipes that I continue to share at Eco Living Mama.

I adore the soap making process and love sharing my creations with others. 

I hope you love my soaps as much as I do!
