The Cascadia Soap Company was founded in the early 1990's by Joel Morassutti and his wife Maureen. Joel was born on a small farm and vineyard in the South of France. It was here that he observed his mère and grand-mère making soap the old fashioned way.
The family tradition of an at-home apothecary goes back many generations. Each season the botanicals would be harvested and transformed into self-nourishing, healing preparations such as soaps, remedies, infusions, and teas.
The family's current generation in keeping the apothecary alive and thriving is a woman by the name of Francine. From her early years, Francine has been drawn to helping others, including herself in achieving vibrant health from the outside in and the inside out. This has lead her to study more in-depth the skin and bodily systems by becoming a certified skincare therapist, yoga instructor, current student of aromatherapy and lifelong student of ayurvedic medicine. She is now the woman wearing the many hats of this small family enterprise. Francine continues the Southern France lineage of the Morassutti family, in formulating and creating natural health and skincare remedies, with only the purest quality ingredients our Mother Nature has to offer.
and in between we garden.
