Nice to meet you!
We're Bee + Col.
Our shared passion for sustainability led us to launching Simple Alchemy Co together on August 1st, 2018. At the time, we were living and working in a 400 square foot apartment! Even as our business continues to grow, we still have a soft spot for the tiny house life. We now live and work in an 800 square foot cabin in the woods, accompanied by a llama, a goat, and a family of deer.
Col has been making biodegradable soap for over a decade. Having very sensitive skin herself, she has honed a scientific expertise and a keen spidey sense for what products will work well for others. She spends many hours formulating and batch testing recipes, making sure every product we release meets our rigorous standards.
Passions include: Music, sustainable building design, and videos of dogs wearing shoes for the frst time.
