Soapy Soap Company




Soapy Soap Company

Brothers Mohammed M. and Mohammed A. Mahdi, along with their friend Anthony Duncan, started the Soapy Soap Company in their kitchen not long after graduating from Indiana University-Bloomington. Originally, the natural ingredient soap was only intended for personal use, but as people learned about it, the young men couldn’t keep up with the demand, and they were forced to relocate from the kitchen to a building in downtown, as well as hire on nine more employees. The South Central ISBDC assisted the business owners in the areas of human resources, accounting, and tax filing. As a result, the company has seen a significant growth in sales.
