I started Mrs. Troyer's because I wanted to be more environmentally friendly. In the beginning of my enviro transformation, I started reading what was in my body products and I was appalled. It seemed that most of the ingredients were not good for me or the environment. I started making my own recipes, selling to family, friends, a local grocery store and currently on my own website. My skin has transformed from dry and rough, to soft and silky, if you try my soap I know yours will too.
