Valentina's Fruit Soaps

March 14, 2019

My name is Valentina and I am in 7th grade. I was originally going to make wood coasters for my product, but I wanted to make something more unique, something that most people wouldn’t usually see at any store. That’s when I thought of soaps, not just any soaps, but fruit soaps. I wanted to keep the business name simple, so I thought of “Valentina’s fruit soaps”. I did this business alone.

Making my soaps was difficult because I never did this before. I did a lot of research on how to make these. I struggled with the watermelon batch. The green layer and red layer separated, so I had to redo the whole thing. The lemon and lime soaps were more fun to make because I was able to be more creative, without worrying about being perfect.

When I was standing behind my table at the Marketplace, I was nervous and didn’t know if the soaps would sell well. In the end I did pretty well. I plan to go holiday shopping with my money. Next time I will make my product earlier in case I have troubles along the way.
