Let Me Share My Joy.
Hello friends. I just want to say...I can't stop smiling. After a year of patiently waiting, we launched Silly Soap! For those of you that aren't familiar with this amazing new soap, let me tell you about how it was invented.
About a year ago on a Saturday, I hopped into my car to test some ideas that had been haunting me all day. (I do this quite often. Dream up ideas and rush into the Soap Kitchen to play around.) I originally went to the shop to try and formulate a new "frosting" for our bath cupcakes and soap cakes. I wanted something more pliable and sudsy. After about 10 minutes of mixing raw materials together, my "frosting" had morphed into something amazing! What tha' heck? This is like children's modeling clay! I cannot tell you how ecstatic I was. I played around with it for a minute and decided to test it in water. You know, the best way to test soap is in...WATER! Okay..this is cool! It lathered and smelled great. But, the true test is with my 10 year old son. If it doesn't pass his test, well..forget it! He has been my testing agent for years and let me tell you. If he says it stinks..well..it does.
I am back at home and Bobby is on the sofa watching Sponge Bob and I am trying to get him into the bath. After about ten minutes of trying to convince him, I brought out the big guns! "Hey Bobby, look at this stuff. You want to take a bath and test it for me?" Game on! Bobby went nuts over this amazing stuff, and that's exactly what he thinks of it. So, we decided to toss it to a few more friends to see what they thought. Same thing. They loved it.
What exactly is Silly Soap?
Silly Soap is The Pass Christian Soap Co.'s most popular item of choice as we speak! It is a soap, yet it is a modeling clay. So..it's a modeling soap. It's pliable, fragrant and fun!
Does it dry out?
No. Silly Soap is so cool. You can mold it into wonderful shapes. Bathe with your creation and mold it all over again. Endless bath time fun.
Does it make a mess?
Suprisingly, Silly Soap is just as neat as having an ordinary bar of soap next to the tub. Simply sit it on a soap dish and treat it as you would your everyday soap!
Does it melt away quickly?
Absolutely not! This is the beauty of Silly Soap. It lasts and last (provided you don't break it into smitherines and keep it in one form. We have tested it for over a year and I can tell you I bathe with it every night myself. It is like my stress ball! I have had pieces last for up to two months.
Is it gentle?
Silly Soap is very gentle to the skin. It lathers gently and moisturizes as it cleanses.
How do you use it?
Just as you would a bar of soap. Use a bath sponge, wash cloth, or nylon bath poof and work into a rich lather and cleanse. That's it. You will be left smelling amazing. When finished simply store opened on a soap dish. It will not dry out. You can mold it over, and over. Have fun!
Did you know? Okay...this past weekend, I was sitting by the pool with friends and of course, the bugs start biting! Great! This is the perfect way to end a party quick!
So, I thought to myself...self...that bottle of Fresh Lemongrass Lotion in your car might soothe the itching. Maybe. Anyway. Off to the car. A few minutes later something amazing happened after I applied the Fresh Lemongrass Lotion. NO MORE BUGS! Party's on! Before you know it we were all smelling like yummy lemongrass and listening to our favorite tunes pool-side. Minus the biting bugs. Relief in the South!
Recently I sat in on a three day meeting with Mississippi Main Street. The purpose was to help us not just regain our footing from Katrina...because we think we are well on our way.... but, to help us re-define ourselves and show you why you need to visit Pass Christian, MS! While in my own mind (tongue in cheek), I think my soap is reason enough. The other citizens might disagree! We have so much to offer. Beautiful beaches, sunsets, great fishing and family fun. We are the perfect place to raise a family and have fun doing it! Take a look at this fantastic presentation that the wonderful people at Mississippi Main Street put together to get us moving in the right direction. I think you will agree, we have lots to be proud of! Don't forget to visit us in down town Pass Christian!
Good Morning America Keeps Small Business Booming In America
It's been a busy month for a small Pass Christian business after being in the national spotlight. On October 27, Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts raved about the Pass Christian Soap Company.
For two days, thousands of orders came in. Employees have been working practically day and night to fill all those orders.
At the Pass Christian Soap Company's factory on Davis Avenue, the production line cranks up at 8:00 a.m. and doesn't stop until the wee hours of the morning.
"It's been absolutely insane to be honest," said owner Paula Lindsay. "There will be people in town that pass by and they say: 'We actually see you working all night. Do you ever go home?' The answer is no."
Lindsay said her business received more than 4,000 orders, just from Good Morning America viewers. She had to hire 13 additional employees to keep up with the rush.
"It has grown our business so much," said Lindsay. "We now have 4,000 customers we can market to at any given time. We're already getting repeat orders and we're trying to get all the orders out for Christmas."
Lindsay said all the GMA orders for soap bars, body creams and bath bombs should be packaged and shipped by the end of the month. She said customers understand the delay because her products are handmade.
"We have orders coming in daily. Just when we think we've finished, it's time to start again. So we're fortunate," said Lindsay.
The company also makes soy candles. But because they've run out of room in the small factory, Lindsay has rented a building just down the street to make the candles for the next couple of months.
"We've reached another plateau and there's no way to go but up," Lindsay said. "So I feel real confidant that it's going to grow even further."
And she owes it all to Pass Christian's own Robin Roberts, who gave the 12-year old business a priceless plug.
"One hundred percent, I mean, she has really been a big supporter to us. She has helped promote us," said Lindsay. "I'm excited to be a small business in this economy and have this kind of exposure."
Lindsay made about $200,000 in sales during the two-day GMA special. That's almost half of what she makes the entire year.
By the way, the company's retail store on Davis Avenue is also outgrowing its space. It's moving to a bigger building on Davis, just in time for Black Friday.

It's been a busy month for a small Pass Christian business after being in the national spotlight. You may remember, last month Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts raved about the Pass Christian Soap Company. Thousands of orders came in. Trang Pham-Bui re-visits the factory where employees have been working day and night to fill all those orders.
