Our Story...

Welcome to a place where you can find luxurious handmade soap and other skin loving products!
My name is Cristina, I am the owner and creator of Hands of Moldova Company. I was born and raised in the Republic of Moldova and fell in love in a wonderful man, left everything behind and came here, to Michigan to start a family. I am a stay-at-home mom with one lovely daughter, an awesome husband (by the way it was his idea of the name of our company) and two beautiful cats. I have always been interested in a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy, organic food and using body care products that are not harmful.
Before I came to the USA I had never tried to do soap / lotion / lip balms by myself, I had honestly never thought about it! I was way too busy following my career in a GSM company :)
The idea of making soap came when my daughter was born, in 2013. The main reason was to protect my little girl, my family and to stay away from chemicals and whatever most companies put in their body care products that can be very dangerous to our health. Since my first batch of soap made I was hooked, I just fell in love in all this process. Soap making became a passion, along with lotions and lip balms. I LOVE what I do and what I can create!
The idea of selling soap came more than a year later...
Our soaps are not store bought melt and pour glycerin soaps. Everything you see here is handcrafted from scratch, with all natural ingredients:
  • paraben-free

  • no artificial detergents

  • phthalate-free.

Each product we make has an unique design and top-secret formulations. Our products are designed to lift your spirits, help your skin emotionally and physically in a natural way using high quality oils and butters to create a skin-loving product like no other. I hope you love our creations as much as we do!
