our soap story
your havanita girl
Hola, soy Sarai owner and soap-maker with Havana 78 Artisan Soap Company (Havana 78 Soaps for short). We are a fine artisan home and bath company based in Florida but representing mi cultura Cubana.
Our story begins ending of 2016, I was working and going to school full time but was bored with my mundane routine. So, one day I came across a soap making class and I was like, coño que buena idea. I signed right up and it was love at first saponification!
I always daydreamed about having my own business, so I quit school and decided to just go for it and live my dreams. I knew I wanted to make soaps but didn't know what my little business would look like. One fateful trip to La Pequeña Havana (Little Havana en la Calle Ocho) changed it all for me. I was caught right in the center of everything Cuba, in Miami that is. I knew right there and then, that’s where I needed to be. My heart had flutters and I knew I needed to represent my culture, my Cuba though my soaps!
I launched my business in January 2018 and here I am. And while you're here, let yourself be indulged and carried away with one of my Cuba inspired soaps. Indulge that inner Havanita or channel your inner Havanero. Let’s get Havana’d together!
