About Black Gold Soap Company

My name is Shayla, and I am the founder of Black Gold Soap Company Inc. (BGSC), which was officially started in March 2017.

My first exposure to homemade soap was from a friend who started creating cute melt and pour bars and sharing them with me. She moved on to creating cold process soap from scratch, and as she became hooked, I was able to see more and more of the techniques, ingredients, scents and colours she was able to use to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind soaps, bath bombs, shampoo bars, and more!

Fast forward a couple of years of playing with various recipes, and after a busy period of my life that involved getting married and other events, here we are! Together with my husband, Ross, I work a day job and run BGSC. We sell online (here!) and at various markets in Leduc and area; check out our Where We'll Be page for upcoming market dates.


BGSC focuses primarily on creating small-batch, handcrafted soaps and bath bombs, but also occasionally produces solid bubble bath, massage bars, bath melts, lotions, and other bath and body products.

Custom Products

Given the small-batch nature of BGSC's merchandise, we are able to create products tailored specifically to your special event, company, or just your personal tastes!

If you're interested in custom BGSC products, please visit our contact page to tell us more about your needs and vision. Alternatively, you can email us directly at blackgoldsoaps@gmail.com.
