Foxen Canyon Soap, a Shopify D2C Seller finds value in Katana cloud-based manufacturing software. The company is a sustainable and environmentally friendly small soap and skincare manufacturing company.
Ellowyn Isaacson, the owner shared, “Katana is perfect for coordinating Shopify sales, inventory, raw materials, and even accounting with QuickBooks. The integration is simple to set up. Customer service is outstanding.”
For over 15 years, Isaacson has explored her passion for sustainable natural living. After making soaps as gifts for friends and family, she had the idea of starting a soap business using products from the diverse, local agricultural community and Foxen Canyon Soap Company opened for business March 2018.
Every part of her business is designed to be sustainable and environmentally friendly from sourcing the ingredients to the impact of the soap washing down the drain. The company has quickly grown to become one of the largest soap companies on the Central Coast of California.
