Bar Soap Brooklyn is entirely made by hand, from scratch, in Brooklyn, New York by KaKyung Cho. While her name may not sound typically American, she is of Korean descent, living and working in Brooklyn, true to the American Melting Pot mentality, and true to the idea that we are one nation made up of many nationalities. The idea of Bar Soap Brooklyn was born as many small businesses are born – out of need. Ms Cho had a recurring skin condition that belied conventional treatment. Eventually she took matters into her own hands and decided that a pure and natural approach was the way forward, so she developed soaps that used the healing and soothing properties of nature to treat her skin in a gentle holistic fashion.
