In 2011, Yvonne Pedersen decided to take the plunge and leave her job in a wellestablished company to focus her expertise on making quality products that both smell nice and look pretty. Just like that, Såpe Conditoriet was born. “I focus on making the perfect product: from deciding what hard oils to use and what scent will be the right one to choosing how to decorate the finished soap. It’s a long process – some of my soaps are even stirred by hand, which can take up to an hour – but it has to be that way when you use the good old methods and when the texture, feel and rich lather are your end goals,” Pedersen explains.
