business idea: clearly fun soap

It all started with a goldfish in a bag.

Dawn Dallaire, founder of Clearly Fun Soap, began by making gifts for her friends and family in 2002.  They were such a hit that she started getting requests, first from these same friends and family members, and soon from neighbors, acquaintances and complete strangers. 

Something Clearly Fun had begun.  For a few months, Dawn ran the operation out of her kitchen, then her garage. It quickly became apparent that the company’s growth was outpacing her ability to devote space to it.  She rented a warehouse and began hiring America’s most talented soapcrafters, who make every bar and bag of Clearly Fun Soap by hand.  By 2006, the company moved again, to its current 10,000 square foot manufacturing facility, with over sixty employees.
Today, Clearly Fun Soap™ is one of America’s fastest growing specialty products companies, producing a broad range of bath products. 

Our hand-made soaps, gels, bath fizzies and confettis delight children and their parents, they provide memorable corporate gifts and add a special touch for the hospitality industry.

Our branded and private label products can be found at Bath & Body Works, Kirklands, Ritz Carlton Hotels, the Grand Ol’ Opry, and even as personalized gifts for international celebrities!

Because our soap products are hand-made at our headquarters in central Georgia, we have the flexibity to produce short-run and specialty packaging as well as large volume packaging.

And yes… we still offer goldfish-in-a-bag soap.  It’s a perennial favorite with our most loyal customers.
