Pacha Soap was started in a college apartment and has steadily grown from there. Pacha's main goal is to raise awareness of handmade goods, especially cold-process soap made with all natural ingredients. They have designed and built most of their equipment used in the production process. The name ''Pacha'' means ''earth'' in the quechua language native to the Andean people of South America. The inspiration for handmade, natural products was taken from them.
