Saipua matriarch, Susan Ryhanen began making soap as a hobby in 1999 in her basement using olive oil from the grocery store and a shoebox as a mold. The hobby grew into a small business called Creekside Soaps which sold soap as well as custom engineered soap making supplies, designed by Susan's husband Pentti.
In 2004 Susan’s daughter Sarah and her partner Eric suggested a re-branding of the soap - and SAIPUA (derived from the Finnish word for soap ‘saippua’ and a nod to Pentti’s heritage) was formed. For almost two decades, soap has served as a backbone for the myriad endeavors at SAIPUA and Worlds End Farm.
