Sanctuary Soaps & Fragrances uses a combination of physical work on thoughtful planning to create beautifully balanced finished products.

Our employees use mathematical equations and chemistry principals to cook recipes of bar soap, lotions, lip butter, and candles. Learning through right and left brain activities, our young ladies create beautiful products that can stand up against any other bath and body products in the competitive spa environment.

Peace of the City nurtures an entrepreneurial spirit that challenges our young employees to not only enjoy the creative process of soap-making and apothecary but to truly grasp business philosophy, sustainable planning and the economics of being marketable in a competitive environment.

“I felt so proud the people wanted the things that I had made.”

The self-worth and pride experienced by our young women through these small business collectives is a treasure that we cannot measure.
