About the Company
Glynne's Soaps is located in Wilmington, NC, in an area affectionately referred to by the locals as Monkey Junction. Proud to be a local company, we also look at business with a global (or at least a national) view. That’s why our primary store is right here, on the Web, virtual and accessible 24/7 from anywhere.
For now, our factory is our kitchen, keeping the feel of our company and our products special and personal. We reach locals through various retail outlets around town. It is our plan to open a shop in downtown Wilmington, NC in 2009.
Glynne's Soaps is owned and operated by D. Gayle Tabor and Jennifer L. Beddoe. Soon after Jenn finished her Master's Degree in Chemistry, she became interested in more creative outlets for her chemical knowledge. About this time, tragedy struck, as their dog, Franklyn, suffered an unfortunate and untimely death, traceable only to the use of a topical flea treatment.
The combination of sorrow and their passionate commitment to not have another pet owner go though what they went though losing Franklyn drove Jenn’s search for a safe flea treatment. She formulated All Natural Dog Soap and successfully controlled fleas on their personal dogs. Based on the effectiveness of that soap, Gayle and Jenn thought perhaps others might want to try a safe alternative to topical flea products as well. And VOILA! Glynne’s Soaps began.
They combined both owners’ middle names – Gayle and Lynne – forming the moniker, Glynne’s Soaps.
