Hi! I’m Nathan Walden, founder and CEO of Hope Soap Ohio and The Love Truck.
For years, I struggled with a skin issue called dermatitis. In the broadest sense, dermatitis is itchy inflammation of the skin. After years of doctors appointments, testing, and medication, I decided to create my own remedy. In 2012, I started making natural soap that completely cured my skin problems.
In addition to making natural soap, I am very passionate about helping the homeless community. That passion is what also pushed me to create a non-profit called “The Love Truck.” The Love Truck assists those who are homeless in Akron, OH. Every last Saturday of the month, we serve a hot meal, hand out necessities like soap, and assist with finding employment for those who are homeless.
My past skin issues combined with my passion to serve the homeless community is what birthed my business Hope Soap Ohio. At the core of my business, is purposeful skincare products with a cause.
For every item sold, we give a bar of our soap to someone in need.
“Hope for your skin and hope for someone else”
