Meet Soft Paws Cosmetics
Hey Guys, my name is Kata, and this is the story of how it all began.
I’m a Hungarian girl living in Rosslare with my family since September 2019. Before that, we lived in Tata, a beautiful little town in Hungary. Soap making has always been a passion of mine but before now, it had been nothing other than a lovely pastime.
Rosslare Harbour, Co. Wexford
This all changed when we moved to Ireland. We had visited Ireland as tourists in 2017 and immediately fell in love with the music, the countryside and the atmosphere. Somehow, we knew that this was the perfect place to raise our daughter and where we wanted to spend the rest of our lives. We were lucky enough to move to Ireland, so we packed our things and started our journey alongside our lovely pets in 2019!
A new opportunity
Meet the crafter
As our dream slowly realised, I started to think about something I had never dared to think about before: starting my business and doing what I truly adore. Soft Paws Cosmetics was born in 2020 out of my passion for animals and dedication to using ingredients that are safe not only for us but also for our environment.
Unleash Your Inner Animal
Soft Paws Cosmetics
While browsing our goods, you will meet names that bear the name of different animals and are trying to express the product’s character so that you can pick the right one for your mood. Whether you feel like a Fierce Lioness, a Handsome Hare, or you are up to some Monkey Business; you will find everything you need to Unleash Your Inner Animal in our webshop.
Our first shop
Fresh Handmade Cosmetics
In June of 2021, we opened our first-ever shop thanks to our lovely customers’ support. Our little cottage at Wells House & Gardens (Ballyedmond, County Wexford) is filled with beautiful scents and quality vegan cosmetics, all handmade by us. You can find us in the Craft Courtyard, where you can try out all of our available products and lay your paws on them. You might even meet Pixie – our chunky little Pug who loves meeting new people (and dogs!).
Crafting & Teaching
Soap Making Workshop with Kata
2021 was a very busy year for us. A few months after the shop opened, we upgraded our cottage by adding a small workshop, and in October, I had my first Soap Making Class. My students learn the secrets of small-batch soap making and make their own Cold Process and Melt & Pour soaps.
