Located on Maui, Hawai'i we specialize in hand crafted, luxury soap. Each bar is meticulously made in small batches to ensure quality. We truly take pride in what we do and strive to make it perfect for you and your family.
I started out making soap in Portland, Oregon. On rainy days (and there were a lot of those) I would turn the music up and start making soap. I was fascinated by the chemistry of it and the simplistic, rustic style of cold process soap making; which is the art of turning oils and or fats into raw soap. I bought every soap making book available and would read them cover to cover. Trial and error is key when you indulge into a trade like this. Back then I stirred every batch by hand and I spent many afternoons stirring a pot of soap that would eventually either turn into perfection or turn into something unexpected. I looked forward to every experiment and became more passionate after every batch.
As the years went by and life took its turns and twists I continued my passion. I landed in Hawai'i in 2003 and fate had it that Maui was in need of a soap maker. I started work creating the recipes and doing all the production for a very popular company here on Maui. After 8 years of professional experience and learning so very much from not only all of my research but also from the wonderful people around me, I started Shaka Street Soap Works.
