our soap story
your havanita girl
Hi, I'm Sarai owner and soap-maker with Havana 78 Artisan Soap Company (Havana78Soaps for short). Our story begins ending of 2016 while I was failing Chemistry. As if going to school and working full time weren't a busy schedule, I still managed to find myself bored. Nothing a good ol' Google search couldn't fix. 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) 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 and/or channel your inner Havanero. Let’s get Havana’d together!
