We had the good fortune of connecting with Philip Cardarella and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Philip, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
Most people are unaware that there are fundamental differences between “store-bought” and handmade soap. Soap used to be a simple process of combining water, lye, and oil in the correct amounts. However, many mass-produced soaps have a long list of multi-syllable chemicals and preservatives. Unfortunately, many people have only experienced this type of soap. Our goal here at Rocky Vista Soap Company is to educate everyone that there are other options that are healthier for you and the environment.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Rocky Vista Soap Company prides itself in providing high-quality products. The ingredients we use, the materials we source, the passion put forth in everything we do, is what sets us apart from others. We truly believe in all of our products and there isn’t a product we don’t use ourselves. We love sharing our story with people and our customers deserve every bit of recognition for our success. One of the most rewarding aspects of our business is hearing from customers how much they love our soap. This validates what we do. Our business continues to grow as we partner with like-minded businesses and organizations to spread the word of Rocky Vista Soap Company.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When we have friends or family visit us here in Colorado, we plan a trip up into the mountains to show off our beautiful state. Everything from hiking, biking, or just walking through our parks and forests, we try and distill the essence of Colorado and show them why we choose to live here.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Our family and friends, both near and far, deserve the utmost recognition in our success. Before Rocky Vista Soap Company was even a thought, the love, support, and encouragement received paved a path for our business. Without the network of support at the very beginning, we really doubt we would be sharing our story with you. To everyone who has helped along the way – we thank you and we love you!
