About Us

From humble beginnings … Tracy Searle, the founder/creator/real OG of The Margaret River Soap Factory started this business in 2001 in the back shed of our home for 2 reasons:
1. To provide a better lifestyle for her three daughters Emily, Brittany and Keelie-Rose
and
2. To make beautiful soaps and body products for people to enjoy. She had a passion for creating, whether it was painting, cooking, baking or candlestick making!

She managed to create a beautiful line of handcrafted body products in her spare time from her full time teaching position and job as single mum.

Tracy was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and fought the battle with widespread cancer until the 18th of September 2014.
Emily and Brittany are continuing her legacy.
We love and miss our mum very much but doing this work and reading through her old recipes fills our hearts with joy and we want to share these special products with the rest of the world.
