Let me introduce myself
My name is Corey, and I am the soap artisan and CEO of Winter's Meadow.
I am 26, been married for 8 years with my husband Terrance, and we have 5 year old twin daughters Winter & Meadow. My husband is a stay at home dad, and I currently work at a vet clinic full time. During my days off I run my handmade soap business.
I started making soap about 6 years ago. My husband is super into health and fitness, so when using products like soap, he is always intentional about the ingredients that they contained. Due to his sensitive skin, he needed something as simple and safe as possible. We decided that we wanted to find a soap made with 100% coconut oil, free of detergents, fragrances, and any other unnecessary additives. We searched high and low and couldn't find any in store. So after watching some youtube videos on how to make cold process soap yourself, I decided to give it a try. I have always loved creating useful things, so being able to customize it exactly how I wanted, while creating something that has a purpose was very exciting.
After my first batch I was hooked. If you've made soap before, I know you understand the feeling. It was so much fun, and the result was a beautiful. A bubbly bar of soap that did exactly what we intended. After about a year of making my own soap recipes, dabbling with skin safe colorant & scents for myself, I started sharing with family and friends. I had so many people sharing how much they loved my soaps that it got me thinking, maybe I could make this passion into my career..? So I opened up an online shop and here we are today!
Body care is something that makes me feel good, brings me joy, drives my creativity, and has become my biggest passion. Being able to share my products with so many others who express their love for my creations has been so fulfilling. It brings me so much happiness knowing I'm able to provide someone with something they need, whilst brightening their day. Even if for only a second, it's worth every obstacle I face in this business journey.
I pride myself in making sure I'm crafting items for practically everyone's preferences. Whether you want something 100% all natural or you are a bit more adventurous and want something with more bells and whistles, I'm here for you. I'm also very passionate about sustainability and eco friendly materials, and strive to make the least amount of waste as possible. My intension is to continue improving, and make this dream a full time reality. I want to be able to work from home, spend more time with my family, and do what I love all the time.
Thank you all so much for you support, it means the world! Love you all!
