The Cascadia Soap Co. is a small family enterprise dedicated
to the creation of natural skin
care products. Joel was born on a small farm/vineyard in the South of France. There he
observed his mother making soap the old fashioned way. For his family, the tradition of
using available botanicals in the making of soaps, remedies and infusions goes back many
Over the years, Joel and his wife Maureen kept this tradition alive by collecting rose
hips after the first frost, enjoying the tender sprouts of spring dandelions and making
salves and balms as required.
Having heard of the benefits of goat milk liposomes in soap, the Morassuttis began experimenting and eventually developed a technique used in producing rich, long-lasting, and moisturizing skin cleansing bars. Through word of mouth, the demand for this natural product grew very quickly. What was once a hobby became a family business.
Selling their product in Granville Island Market (the leading tourist destination in British Columbia) has given Cascadia skin care products international exposure. Keeping the family business small and manageable is a prime objective as it allows the Morassuttis to maintain direct quality control over their product. Their presence at Craft Shows and Markets in the Pacific Northwest and their use of the internet allows them to stay in direct contact with their customers.
The greater awareness of consumers is contributing to the rising demand for healthful cosmetic products.
A growing number of discriminating consumers want skin care products that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. More people than ever are experiencing skin sensitivities, thus increasing the demand for our product. We, therefore remain committed to hand-crafting the highest quality natural skin care products with the very best Mother Nature has to offer.
