Nestled within the Cradle of Civilisation, Soap Lady continues the legacy of fine soap production for which this corner of the eastern Mediterranean has been renowned since ancient times. Initially, having no business name and just limited number of soaps for sale on a craft market stall in the beautiful summer tourist destination of Oludeniz, this family-run business was founded in 2006 when Ayse retired from teaching and the venture was joined and supported by her daughter, Burcu, who was also a teacher but who has now since retired herself from teaching to pursue her love as a talented artist and it is Burcu who became the face of ‘Soap Lady’, appearing within the company motif on all our soap products.
With outlets in Fethiye and Oludeniz in western Turkey, the business has grown through ‘word of mouth’ into an established and recognised company selling more than 35,000 soaps every season to visitors from across Europe, North America, Russia, the Far East and Africa. Soap Lady specialises in Turkish handmade natural soap that not only preserves and nourishes the skin, but which also treats a wide variety of skin problems. Our customers’ glowing reviews are testimony to the wonderful results achieved over the years.
Talking to our many loyal customers and listening to their ideas and suggestions has been the key to our success and the nickname ‘Soap Lady,’ used by so many in reference to Burcu, eventually came to define the company’s identity.
