Established in 2019, GOLD+WATER CO.™ is a boutique soapery and wellness advocacy brand based in Philadelphia, PA. We produce handcrafted soap, bath items, and home decor in small batches. We pride ourselves on using carefully-selected ingredients from reputable sources, as well as providing both outstanding customer service and transparent engagement. We also actively support local anti-abuse organizations and those addressing mental health and hygiene needs in our community.
Our products foster a sense of relaxation, facilitate consistent and lavish self-care, and seek to remind you that "YOU ARE THE LUXURY."
Self-care can sound like an unaffordable luxury to many. It doesn’t always feel acceptable to take the time to sit and soak, in a tub or in our feelings. Yet Chartel knows that even seemingly small moments of paying attention to feelings and physical needs have been acts of resistance and self-preservation during turbulent moments in her own life.
Therefore, it is the GOLD + WATER Co. mission to remind you that YOU ARE THE LUXURY. Caring for one's self *well* is not optional. It does not need to take hours. It does not need to deplete your bank account. It is a moment of quiet. It is a deep breath. It is washing with a beautiful soap. It is undoing the day. Like spreading on a body butter, it is residual. It is intentional.
A very special part of the mission of GOLD+WATER CO. is wellness advocacy. They are specifically committed to promoting and supporting organizations that further the work of abuse and violence prevention, and hygiene awareness throughout the region of Philadelphia including, Project Hygiene and Open Door Abuse Awareness Prevention (ODAAP).
