Who We Are

Siberian Soap Co. specializes in handcrafted soaps made using the cold process technique (the old-school lye soap technique that dates back centuries)... but this is not your grandma's soap!  Each fabulous soap bar is chock full of skin-loving (and fur-loving) eco-friendly ingredients like coconut oil, olive oil, herbs, clays, botanicals, and pure plant essential oils.  Siberian Soap Co. seeks to produce high quality, long-lasting functional products at a reasonable cost - an affordable luxury.

Ann Staudt is the founder, chief soap formulator, kitchen chemist, graphic designer, sales manager, packaging extraordinaire, and overall operations manager behind Siberian Soap Co.  She holds degrees in both chemical and environmental engineering. Soapmaking provides a wonderfully creative outlet that combines her interests in science, art, and living a simple, eco-friendly lifestyle.  

Staudt was born and raised an Iowa farm girl, and is proud to say that soapmaking goes back four generations in her family (along with an all-around DIY spirit).  Starting around age three, Staudt had an early fascination with and desire to sell her goods at "crap" (craft) shows.  She also picked up an early intrigue with farmers' markets as she and her younger sis helped Mom sell garden fresh veggies and produce at several markets across northern Iowa. Give it some time, and it all comes full circle!

And yes, the company is indeed named after a wonderful Siberian husky!  Jackie Dog is the right hand lady in all of Siberian Soap Co.'s operations. Her favorite job is quality control on each and every batch of wholesome, fresh baked Canine Cookies.  Read more about Jackie HERE.
