Spero Soaps is a family owned and operated company that takes pleasure in satisfying our customers' personal care needs.\r\n\r\nWe at Spero Soaps are Scottish lads and lasses who LOVE a great bargain, but never at the expense of quality!\r\n\r\n \r\nSpero Soaps are for those who desire the quality of luxury, handmade, all natural soap and body products, but without the spa price tag! Our products are the same high quality, but at a much lower price.\r\nHow does that happen? Read on...\r\n \r\nWe're a Scottish family, pure and simple. The soap maker here grew up with Scottish parents who, in spite of only having an income of equal to around $10-$12 per hour in today's money, raised seven children, and managed to travel extensively, taking us on regular vacations all over the United States. That's part of being Scottish (quality and simplicity vs. extravagance)! We managed to visit over 30 states during childhood. This helped develop a spirit of adventure in our family.\r\n \r\nThat love of adventure continued when I began to cook for our family after my father passed away when I was 15. Never one to assume a recipe couldn't be improved, I was often using our family as willing guinea pigs for my experiments. Experimenting with food paid off when a recipe I created placed second in a national recipe contest.\r\n \r\nThat same love of adventure and creativity, along with the Scottish qualities of loving great quality and a great price, has been brought to our soap making. We started out following basic soap recipes, but after studying various base and essential oils, soon began to make products to meet specific needs, i.e. Robber's legend for the bathroom sink or ManSoaps for men who just can't stand the "girly" scents in most soaps, all the way to our line of intensely moisturizing body products that go way beyond just shea and mango butters. The love of adventure, excellence, and value, combined with the responsibility of stewardship over God's creation means we won't "leave well enough alone" but will continue to strive for excellence.
