Who is the Earthyalchemist
Earthyalchemist Soaps N' Scrubs is the brainchild of a wildly curious and introspective mother, wife and daughter of two doctors. Sumam Jurczak born in Boston and raised in Hockessin, Delaware with a traditional and simplistic outlook to a life steeped in culture, tradition and at its root Ayurvedic principles. She spent her youth learning to balance her Indian heritage and culture with the innately American values she grew up in. It wasn't easy to find the balance, but that struggle would shape her entire life and ultimately bring her here to this venture. She would learn to be the perfect "Indian daughter," failing many times but trying again and still assimilate seamlessly into American culture and her belief system will take shape to blend the best of both worlds. She is proof that you can be both Indian and an American without losing one to the other. She will later meet and marry the love of her life a 3rd generation Polish American man and have two beautiful baby girls. For years she spent planning for the future. Working hard to meet the demands of a young working family taking the safe road. Until tragedy struck one day. A Clear cold day like any other day. She'd lose both her parents in an instant. Six months pregnant and left to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart she learned that one essential truth. That nothing lasts forever. No one is promised tomorrow. So she needed to stop planning and start doing. Now. And so began her journey to embrace the bits and pieces of her past. With losing her parents, she had lost her point of reference and felt like she was drifting at sea without an anchor. Simplicity and her familial practices became more and more significant. At first as an attempt to hold onto her parents and then it was a labor of love and precision.
And so began the unwinding. Embracing simple, clean living pays homage to the memory of her parents and the culture they worked to instill in her and her attempt to hang onto and impart to her children. It also celebrates her intrinsic American values and her true blue patriot heart. Her journey blossomed into something bigger and from its bloom came Earthyalchemist Soaps N' Scrubs.
Beautiful and elegant in its simplicity, we place importance on what goes into our skincare with a singular focus. Only to provide you the best for your skin which is guilt free and as close to natural and chemical neutral as possible.
How It All Comes Together
We are doing our part in providing you with products made with nourishing oils, purifying clays and pure additives like goats milk, honey, dried fruit peels, and many other exotic and vibrant herbs and spices. Staying true to the essence of quality over quantity, we make our products in small batches. Only using the best ingredients and always pushing the creativity threshold. We use the two age-old methods of soap making. Most of our collection uses the "hot process method" this is a way of cooking the soap over a stove or crockpot. The soap is ready for use immediately after the cook. But to ensure quality and stability, we cure it for 2-3 weeks anyway. The second method is called the "cold process method" this involves curing soaps 4-6 weeks after mixing and setting in molds.
