Soypa Soaps natural Soaps
My name is Anđela (Croatian version of Angela) and I started the Soypa project in 2019 while living in Reykjavik.
Since I was a kid, geology always fascinated me, resulting in my graduation and job as a mining engineer where I applied geological knowledge daily. After four years, I decided to move to Iceland and continuing my education in sustainable development. And it was the best decision in my life!
Not to mention that Iceland is a heaven for geology lovers with its unique, out-of-this-world scenery, so designs for the Icelandic collection just came naturally.
Besides geology, I love the beautiful design, art, and creating my things which I tried to reflect in my work by paying a lot of attention to the details of each product. Sea, being the main force of our planet, has been my great inspiration and sanctuary, so using sea salt in all my soaps is a homage to “le grande blue”. Unfortunately, many negative things are destroying our oceans and through my work, I want to send a message that we need to do something to stop it.
I am also a crazy plant lady, animal lover, dog owner, bookworm, music fan, and many more. Join me on this journey of shifting towards sustainable living!
Mission, Vision & Core Values
The mission of the company is to encourage people to shift towards low waste and plastic-free lifestyle. Furthermore, each package has a related environmental message with the aim to raise awareness among the customers.
Soypa’s vision is to be a role model for our customers in the transition towards sustainable living.
Soypa soaps include the plant-based ingredients, the design, and the story behind each product. The formula is based on:
- 7 plant oils
(coconut, olive, sweet almond, apricot, sunflower, castor oil, shea butter)
- Icelandic sea salt from Westfjords
- mineral and plant-based pigments (kaolin and Moroccan clays, natural indigo powder, ethically sourced mica)
- a mix of 3 different essential oils in each soap
