Catherine Bruce is the Founder and Creator of Catarina Concepts, a handmade, small batch soap shop. In 2018, as many 30-somethings do, Catherine began researching all the aspects of a  healthier lifestyle, and that eventually led her to learn about natural skin care routines, regular exercise, and discovering new hobbies.

During this journey, Catherine took a soap-making series course with Green Girl Basics® in Atlanta, GA. She was captivated by the process and the idea of creating something from scratch that could benefit both her body and mind. She followed that with much more research, YouTube tutorial binging and a course with Formula Botanica. That's when the idea of Catarina Concepts was born.

Catarina Concepts is a tribute to Catherine's grandmother and namesake, Catarina Rosalina Carmelina Perrelli Citroni Bragg (yes, that is her full name!). Catherine's grandmother inspired her to always pursue her passions. "Concepts" represents the idea of inspiring people to think outside the box and take care of themselves in a more natural and focused way.

All products are formulated by Catherine and handcrafted by her and any of her willing family and friends. Catherine's passion for soap-making is evident in every bar of soap she creates, and she is thrilled to share her products with her friends, family, and you.
