Introducing Zoë- Zero Soap Co. 

This month, we chatted with Zoë, founder of Zero Soap Co. She graciously welcomed us into her Toronto studio to take a peek behind the scenes at the work that goes into creating her handmade soap bars. A bar of Zoë’s soap will be included in each Candle Club subscription box this month. Read on to hear more about Zoë.

I am—

Creative and optimistic. 

I make—

Simple but luxurious soaps. I ensure that my ingredients are straightforward and easy to read, no surprises here! I believe handmade soaps are far superior to traditional soaps, which is why I often describe my products as an everyday luxury. They provide a low waste alternative to everyday products. 

I'm inspired by—

The women in my life and female founders in general. 

The scent of cedarwood always reminds me of—

My cottage. I love woody and earthy scents. I believe they are the most grounding fragrances. Vetiver is also a favourite scent of mine. It reminds me of a family friend who helped me create my own fragrance and gave me some of my first aromatherapy books. I still use them to this day to inform and inspire me when I’m creating scents for my products.

I light candles to—

Ground myself and relax at home. They help me settle into my home environment and end my day. 

My feel-good fragrance is— 

ERDE. This is a go-to LOHN scent for me. I always gravitate toward woody scents. 

I'm currently obsessing over—

Experimenting with new products and formats. Particularly, my lotion bars new custom molds.
