How Wixy Soap Started
I was a custom home builder in Southern Alberta and real estate agent. Then the housing market crashed. I came to live in Sherwood Park to be closer to family. I brought my best friends, 2 shih tzu's I had had since they were 8 weeks old.
Winnie passed when she was almost 16, and a few months later, Foxy developed an intolerable skin infection that seemed to be exacerbated by her doggie dementia kicking in. I was bathing her almost daily with medication shampoo and she was on other medications including steroids.
One day my co-worker from Goa suggested I put some turmeric in her food. Now, I had dabbled in some "natural" products, cleaning products that didn't seem to work and such, so I was a bit skeptical, but also desperate to try anything for my beloved, distraught Foxy. I bought some non-irridated turmeric from the health food store (a place I would frequent more often) and added it to her meals. Alas, after only a short while she was healthy enough to come off her meds.
I was sold on natural ingredients. I was so excited about Foxy that I promised to make her natural ingredient dog shampoo. And so I set off, binge watching how-to videos on YouTube. Well, it turns out you have to know how to make cold process soap before you can make shampoo and liquid soap. I made my first batch of homemade cold process soap, and I was HOOKED!
As most soapers can relate, this is nothing new, but I made batch after batch, making more than I could give away, not knowing how to get rid of the extra.
Well, I started a company, I sold beautiful handmade soap that everybody loved. I named it after my Winnie and Foxy and launched Wixy Soap.
The Evolution of Wixy Soap
I worked hard, preparing for trade shows, big and small, pop-ups and markets. Eventually, the market started to saturate, and at one long 3-day weekend Christmas market, with no traffic and less sales, I was frustrated and tired. I still wanted to make and market soap but it was getting hard with a full-time job and my critters. At this point I also had fostered some kittens.
Many of my clients had expressed an interest in making soap. So, I put on a class. It was a huge it, everyone had a blast and it was fulfilling.
