Located in the historic and picturesque community of Lunenburg, Nova scotia, Kaleidosoap is a small company dedicated to producing handmade, artisanal bath & body products of impeccable craftsmanship and beautiful artistry inspired by magic, myth, legend, lore, history, art, science fiction, fantasy, the supernatural, and a general love of weirdness and nerditude. Informed by a positive understanding of both physical and mental health care, and driven by the principle of a kaleidoscope which allows you to look through broken pieces and still find beauty, each unique item is made by hand in small batches, to ensure the maximum attention to each individual work of art.
Arwen Falvey started making soap in 1997 and she learned the hard way through study, research, calculating massive chemical equations by hand, and experimentation. When she started there were no convenient soap calculators available, no forums or support groups to lean on, and many everyday ingredients, such as coconut oil, couldn't even be found in health food stores yet. She studied chemistry while earning a BA in Psychology and then joined the Canadian Armed Forces where she served as a QL5 Medical Technician and completed a tour of duty in Afghanistan. After returning to Canada, disabled and struggling with PTSD, she found peace and comfort in the therapeutic effects of creating soap art, and so Kaleidosoap was born!
**Weight may vary upon purchase. Due to being handmade and cut, the size, weight, shape, colour, and consistency of each bar of soap may vary. These variations are a normal part of the handmade soap process and serve only to make your experience unique.**
