Celebrating a Mother’s Influence From the Low Country

“She always taught me to go for it.”

It started as a simple hobby for Jeanine Gantt, making luxuriously all-natural body care products as gifts for friends and family. But once people got a taste of her custom creations, they wanted more, and The Charleston Soap Chef was born.

“My mother was a small-business owner herself and she always taught me to go for it―do what I wanted to do and put 110 percent into it,” Jeanine says.

Being raised by her entrepreneurial mother, Jeanine carries on the small-business tradition while raising her own two young sons—her biggest helpers.

Together, Jeanine and her sons make her amazing soaps, scrubs, lotions and body washes—excellent quality, natural products crafted to exceed expectations.

Jeanine first started making soap and body care products in the kitchen while she was in graduate school studying mental health. What began as a relaxing hobby for her that took on a life of its own.

“As far as being a mental health counselor? Sometimes God has different plans,” Jeanine says.

Jeanine’s products are unlike anything that can be found on the supermarket shelves. They make great gifts, especially for Mother’s Day!
