About Storybook Soapworks
My name is Lauren Reed, and I am the man behind Storybook Soapworks.
I have always been a curious person. I love to dig into the details of how something works and learn more about my interests and hobbies. Storybook Soapworks exists because of this curiosity. As I began wetshaving, I was quickly caught up in the wonder of the process. The idea of creating soaps and splashes to complement this wonderful hobby seemed like a fun and useful project, and I quickly fell down the rabbit hole. What you see today is the culmination of my curiosity and passion. Storybook Soapworks exists to provide excellent, handcrafted products for wet shavers like you and me.
While I am a new to the world of soapmaking, I have always been an avid reader. When I sit down with a good story, the rest of the world fades out, and all of the stress of life and work and relationships gets set aside while I spend as long as I can lost within the pages. In these moments, I get to enjoy a world that’s bigger than me, explore places that I could never see in real life, and experience other perspectives that are so different from my own. When the busyness of life drags me back to reality, I still savor the lasting impressions of whatever story I have just read.
My hope is that, just like a good book, these handmade shaving products give you a moment’s break from reality, a chance to experience something new and different from the demands of daily life. Enjoy scents that have been built to be refreshing and exciting, along with a performance that has been tailored to meet the needs of wet shavers with a variety of skin types.
