Seven Sisters Soaps at ArtWalk
ArtWalk is preparing for spring cleaning with its newest
artist, Sandra McCartney of Seven Sisters Soaps.
McCartney is the owner and soaper for the homegrown soap company, which started shortly after her daughter received a melt-and-pour soap kit for Christmas in 2011. However, her daughter was hardly interested.
Instead, McCartney ended up taking the kit and started melting and pouring soaps with her granddaughter as a hobby. She began creating soaps and given them away to colleagues at work.
One day, while reading the label of ingredients on the soap-making package, she noticed a considerably long list of chemicals.
Realizing she didn’t want chemicals on her family’s skin, she collected all of the soaps she had given out and embarked on a mission to make the purest, most natural soaps possible.
In March 2012, she quit her day job and then brought her family to Black Mountain to professionally make soap. Since then, she’s made designer soaps with embedded flowers, plain blocks of soap and different varieties for different skin types.
Her mission, she said, is “to make humanity cleaner and healthier one bar at a time.”
