Welcome to the blog and future website of Happy Skin! And if that name is taken? Well, we’ll think of something then.
I’m Barb, and I am the maple leaf in the logo and Sonia is the clover. If you can’t figure it out, I’m Canadian and she is Irish. Between the two of us, I believe at this moment, between the two of us, we have been calling China home for over 21 years. We live in Liaoning, China and I can actually see Sonia’s apartment building from my window!
I’ve been making my own soaps, lotions, beauty products and more for the past eight or nine years. You know what it’s like here in China. You get used to some sort of product, then they never have it anymore. Then you find a new product. Then poof! It is gone again. And repeat. So I figured screw that, why not just make my own stuff after all, it can’t be all that hard as they did it hundred of years ago before electricity was around. So I began reading everything I could get my hands on and began to make soap. Fast forward many years, and Sonia’s standing in my kitchen telling me that I need to start selling my stash of goodies and Happy Skin was born!
It’s been interesting this past year trying to get this business started and doing it by international standards. We plan on sharing some of those stories with you soon!
