Hi, my name is Kareena and I am the owner and soap maker at Kri:ei’tiviti Natural Handmade Artisan Soap. We are a micro-business producing small-batch, hand made, cold process, natural soap, in Perth, Western Australia.

So, a bit about me and my soap making... I began making soap a few years ago now after a rather extensive career as a high-performance swim coach. I am registered with the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS No 1001654) which all sounds rather important. And it is. As a Cold Process Soap Maker, this is a requirement!

I began making soap out of a need to find a suitable product for my highly reactive, sensitive skin. So research, making, testing and more research was needed to find the right recipe.

But that's not all, I also have a load of qualifications that may not seem relevant but tell you a lot about who I am... including;

  • Winner of the 2020 RKCC Solo Business of the Year Award
  • Winner of the Perth Makers Market Scholarship 2020
  • COVID-19 Safety Trained
  • First Aid with Advanced Resuscitation Training
  • Certificate 3 in MicroBusiness
  • Bachelor of Arts with Honours (Urban and Regional Studies)
  • Silver Licence Swim Coach (Advanced Coach)
  • Working With Children Check - because I want to teach kids the benefit of natural skin products too!

And what does all this mean for you?

Well, there are no formal qualifications required to be a soap maker, however, you know you are dealing with someone who knows how to research, formulate and test which is really vital in producing great quality soap.

I also LOVE to educate people on the benefits of using all-natural handmade soap and body products.
Our wish is to make a product that is kind to the earth and kind to your skin!
