My Story

Soap Making started out as a way for me to escape reality while exploring my own version of creativity. What started out as a hobby quickly transformed into a business with people from all over the world buying my handmade natural soap. What I discovered is the same soap my family had come to love, strangers loved even more. 

Thanks to the power of live streaming and social media, Natural Soap By Zakia was born with a growing fan base. I would broadcast live while making my soap and share the finished products on Social Media and people would come back for more and more and my nickname became SoapLadyZ.

I am now the owner of Natural Soap By Zakia where soap nation buys my handcrafted products and Creator of Live Soap School where I teach people around the world the art and science of soap making. I truly enjoy motivating and inspiring others to unlock their creativity through the craft of making soap. I firmly believe that soap making does not have to be hard and have created the New Soap Makers Cookbook series to help new soap makers discover the craft in a fun and easy to understand format. I am now a Certified Soap Maker and it is my pleasure to virtually meet you.
