About Thumbprint Soap
Hello, I'm Katie Adams, the owner and product developer at Thumbprint Soap. This business was born from a desire to use fewer toxic ingredients in my day-to-day routine. I started off buying handmade soaps, but after seeing how beautiful they could be, I just had to learn how to make it myself. So I learned and then I reformulated until I created a product that I love using every day.
My brand name came from the notion that no two bars of soap are exactly the same, just like snowflakes or fingerprints. Unique is beautiful, after all!
When choosing ingredients, I make sure that my fragrance oils are free of phthalates and my preservatives (for lotions and scrubs) are free from parabens. I try avoid palm oil as much as possible, but sometimes manufacturers sneak it in and hide it under different names.
I'm proud to say that my product offering has grown quite a bit since 2013, but making soap is still my favorite part. I'm also happy to be able to donate a portion of my sales to animal rescues. Dogs are a source of joy in my life, and it's important for me to give back to those who don't have a family yet.
