Our Founder

Zakia Ringgold

Soap Making started out as a way for Zakia to escape reality while exploring her own version of creativity. What started out as a hobby quickly transformed into a business with people from all over the world buying her handmade products. Thanks to the power of live streaming and social media, Natural Soap By Zakia was born with a growing fan base. 

She would broadcast live while making soap and share the finished products on Social Media, increasingly people would come back for more and more and her nickname became SoapLadyZ.  She is the owner of Natural Soap By Zakia where soap nation buys her handcrafted products and Creator of Live Soap School where she blogs and teaches people around the world the art and science of soap making. 

She truly enjoys motivating and inspiring others to unlock their creativity through the craft of making soap. Finally she has authored the New Soap Makers Cookbook series to help new soap makers discover the craft in a fun and easy to understand format.
