Trabue Bay Soap Company was started in the quaint seaside community of Punta Gorda, Florida.
The inspiration for making homemade soap came from the many stories my mother would regale me with about the “good ‘ol days” and how all things that mattered and worked well were made at home with love and a little elbow grease. My mother once told me how they would mix wood ash with rendered animal fat and make a paste to bathe, clean pots, and wash their clothing with. She said that the “soap” would not leave your hands or body feeling dry and tight like the commercial brands she now used. I tucked that little tidbit of info into my psyche and it was re-inspired during a conversation with my husband… with his love, knowledge of marketing, and obstacle blasting personality… here we are!
