Unicorn Poop Soap: Magnificent and free range

Unicorn Poop Soap: Magnificent and free range

Unicorn PoopOk, ok... you got me. This isn't actually poop from real live unicorns

This 5-colored cleanliness creation does smell like rainbow sherbet and has a sprinkle of glitter on the top, yes, and in that way, it does very much resemble what you'd expect from the hindquarters of a majestic and magical steed, but it's not actually made from real fecal matter. I know.

One of the fun parts of our jobs is inventing.

But due to the nature of our business (outlined at the bottom of this post), we can't do a whole lot of it.

I got to thinking... why beard oil? Certainly men aren't the only people with brittle, hard to manage hair on their heads.

You may or may not have noticed, but I have blue hair. I know what you're thinking: it looks so natural! But guess what! It is totally not natural.

“It’s kind of like if you mixed Fight Club with Breaking Bad, and then turned that dark storyline into Pushing Daisies,” is what I tell them.

See, at the end of March 2013, I quit my job at The Oprah Winfrey Network to start my own soap company with my husband. Before that, I worked at ABC, and before that, I worked at ABC Family... I’ve been an Entertainment Product Manager for about six years and a web Product Manager of various other types of websites for about eight years before that.
