The Soap Box is owned and operated by Jo Ann Takushi (a former legal secretary) and Steve Cromwell (a former chef) and is located on the island of Oahu. Jo Ann is also a licensed esthetician (skin care specialist) in the State of Hawaii. The Soap Box began on a "whim" nine years ago when its owners became interested in reviving the craft of soap making. The Soap Box has since evolved from a "hobby" into a small business, creating beautiful bath products, in addition to soap, for the people of Hawaii and its many visitors. Their mission is to create natural and innovative products that are "Made in Hawaii".
In addition to manufacturing natural soaps, The Soap Box now produces body scrubs, lotions, candles, and continually strives to meet the needs of its customers with new and improved products. The integrity of its owners and their desire to create high quality products that are both unique and beautiful is what sets this company apart from many other companies.
During the past nine years, Steve, Jo Ann and The Soap Box have since outgrown their "cottage" business and moved into a small warehouse in Waipahu, Hawaii, where they continue to handcraft naturally-derived products for people everywhere!
