Blugirl Soapworks is a small queer-owned handmade soap business. Owner Roxanne Benson and her partner Benny Benson handmake small-batch products primarily sold at farmers markets around Minneapolis. Blugirl’s beautiful soaps are made with high quality oils, natural colorants, essentail oils and recyclable labels.
“I have been making soap for 8 years. The first years it was a side hussle and interest. When covid hit my partner and I joined forces. His long stint at Hell’s Kitchen as the bar manager and business side and my desire to open a soap business collided in a magical way which has left us working night and day and loving it so much. It’s both our full time jobs now. We named our business after our most presious dog Blu who passed away. And Blugirl Soapworks was born.”
