The Company: Soap Cartel
The Founder: Dayana Ariza and Hernan Gonzalez
The Story: When Dayana Ariza and her fiancé Hernan Gonzalez figured out that tea tree oil and lavender could help with his tinea versicolor, a skin condition that causes discoloration, the duo decided to give commercial bath products the cold shoulder—and to start making their own soaps. The most attention-grabbing bar in their three-year-old hobby-turned-line is the color of tar and relies on the detox powers of activated—consider it a green-juice companion.
