Melanie Hooker is an artisan soap maker who lives in the Kispiox Valley, north western, BC. Melanie is a self-taught artist who has been perfecting her beautiful soaps for over 16 years. Like a true artist, Melanie is always coming up with new designs, scents and formulas that inspire her and amaze anyone that sees her unique soaps.
Melanie’s soap making is influenced by nature and people. She feels a deep connection to nature and the animal world. Another passion of hers is gardening and creating micro-ecosystems for the butterflies, bees and lady bugs among other critters. Her soap designs embody the bold and vivid colours found in nature and in the garden she grows. Melanie finds inspiration in delighting people with her creations and letting her imagination roam free. With her flair for style and her practiced use of natural and beneficial ingredients she creates truly extraordinary soap.
Melanie makes her soaps by hand using the traditional cold process method. She has developed many of her own techniques and special formulas. She is committed to making high quality and beautiful soaps for her dedicated customers. Melanie sells her soap at her local farmers’ market, online, and wholesales to over 80 businesses throughout western Canada.
