About Spinster Sisters
Kelly Perkins, Founder + CEO, started making soap and skincare in the '90s with a simple goal: avoiding toxic ingredients. She was horrified to learn about chemicals like Triclosan, an antibacterial agent that is a hormone inhibitor. Finding brands that were truly clean was hard, so she learned to make her own plant-based soap and skincare. People fell in love with her products and from there Spinster Sisters was born.
The first batch of natural soap was made by Kelly and gifted to her family & friends over the holiday season.
Later in 1993
Kelly and her sister do a craft fair together to sell her products. Inspired by singlehood + sisterhood they name their booth Spinster Sisters.
Kelly loved selling out of her products at the fair and makes a goal to do more pop-ups at some point.
2004 - 2006
Kelly has mastered making soap, skincare, and more. She meets Mr. Sisters in 2004 and married him in 2006 but keeps the name Spinster Sisters for her brand.
Kelly begins to sell Spinster Sisters at more and more markets as a solo lady without her sister.
Kelly sells at dozens of markets in Colorado and begins to offer her products to wholesalers, launching in shops & boutiques nationwide.
Spinster Sisters has grown so much that Kelly quits her corporate travel job to run Spinster Sisters full time from her basement.
Later in 2012
Kelly hires her first full time employee. The product line has grown to include not only soap and skincare but items for the bath, home, and even pets.
