With a dedication to using wholesome, high-quality ingredients, we believe that soap should be fun AND good for the environment. Our labels are made from highly sustainable sugarcane fibers(note: tree-free), with a vegan toxin-free adhesive, sourced from the only company that makes them: PURElabels.com. By not using plastic, we aim to do our part to not increase harmful waste onto the planet.
It's more of a challenge, but it's worth it.
Made by hand in beautiful Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada.
PoCo Soap Co. is the soap of PoCo!
Shea was born in Chemainus BC, and grew up mostly on the Island, with a brief stint in Merritt, BC. After graduating from high school, Shea moved to (initially) Banff, and then Canmore AB for a few years before returning home to BC. It was during this time where the soaping bug was caught, as during a period of unemployment, Shea helped the 'Rocky Mountain Soap Company' move production facilities, learned of the current soap maker's imminent departure and asked the owner if he could have the job, to which Shea was denied! Undeterred, he took to the internet to learn how to make soap, bought some basic soap-making equipment, and had been making soap mostly for himself for about 16 years before starting PoCo Soap Co.
