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.

Brand Timeline


The first batch of natural soap was made by Kelly and gifted to her family & friends over the holiday season.

Later in 1993

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.
