Both of our Painted People Tattoo Co. locations in Burlington and Toronto are home to Soapy Penguin Natural Skincare. This is no coincidence as both Painted People Tattoos and Soapy Penguin are owned by Asia and her husband Nick. Soapy Penguin Skincare humbly began back in 2017 when Asia, having invested hundreds (if not thousands) of hours in seminars, training classes and turning their small townhouse into a laboratory as she seriously experimented with creating handmade skincare products. She first formulated what has now become the Tattoo Aftercare balm and quickly expanded to natural soap, lotions, natural oil, candles, bath bombs, etc. Most of the products can now be purchased via the Soapy Penguin Natural Skincare Etsy Shop.
Painted People Tattoos are proud to showcase their products under the Soapy Penguin Natural Skincare umbrella. The sister company, which is slowly finding its footing in the very competitive skincare market, is fully family owned – Asia and Nick, along with Nick’s mother, hand make all of the products. They also handcrafted the logo, and their product labels and ingredients are still created and printed in the two tattoo shops. They always look for natural, best quality locally sourced ingredients to use and are constantly creating new and improved products to proudly feature under the growing Soapy Penguin Natural Skincare brand.
You can check out some of the products below, or experience them in person (they smell absolutely heavenly) at one of Painted People Tattoos shops in Toronto or Burlington. Soapy Penguin Natural Skincare is proud to say that starting this year they will be participating in Toronto’s National Woman’s Show, which is the largest consumer event for women in Canada. The show, outside of Soapy Penguin Natural Skincare, features food and wine sampling, fashion shows, celebrity guests, complimentary makeovers, health, wellness & beauty secrets, cooking demos, home renovation, and decor advice, travel ideas and much more. Keep an eye on the Soapy Penguin website (which is going through a much needed make-over) or ask Asia or any of Painted People Tattoo artists about updates such as when is the next Soapy Penguin market, what booth number are they at the show, or you can even ask for custom or bulk orders in the shops.
Asia and Nick mentioned they’d love to see some of the Painted People Tattoo clients come out and support them at the show!
If interested in supporting them, or more importantly, scoring some amazing natural products that they not only make but fully stand behind, you can purchase them via the Soapy Penguin Etsy Shop, any of the Painted People Tattoo Studios, and, hopefully soon, via the Soapy Penguin website once they get around to enabling eCommerce.
