Graela Soap Company is a family-owned business founded in Portland, Oregon in 2017. Although we are a start-up, our family has decades of experience in the soap industry.
Our goal is to take the unique formulations and premium ingredients found in small-scale "cold process" soaps and combine with the modern manufacturing technology for better texture, consistency and over-all quality.
Although we are a start-up, our family has decades of experience in the soap industry.
Our expertise stems from exposure and involvement with our parents' soap manufacturing business back in the Philippines during the late 1980's to the early 2000's. During summer break from middle school, we worked at the factory doing various tasks, from drying soap chips to wrapping soap to helping in the delivery of finished goods. Later on, we took on more important roles, subsequently honing and mastering the craft.
To continue the legacy of our late father, we borrow the name Graela, which was his brainchild. His company produced herbal products, innovatively making use of ingredients never before seen in such applications.
Graela Soap Company focuses on offering all-natural, premium quality artisanal soap. We maintain innovation by introducing unique blends of natural oils and fragrances with the ultimate goal of crafting the perfect soap.
