About Kápia Méra

Our mission is to create a true handmade artisan product using simple, natural ingredients containing no unnecessary chemicals, preservatives, or perfumes, that is therapeutic to the senses, soothing to the skin, and brings a little luxury into each day.

Our soap making journey began in an effort to relieve our own family’s dry, allergy-prone skin through the use of homemade, natural, chemical-free products. We were inspired by our results to create an affordable, artisan soap using only the highest quality ingredients, without any unnecessary chemicals, perfumes, or preservatives. Whether it’s a fresh, invigorating start to the morning or a relaxing bath at the end of a hard day, we want our customers to experience a little luxury everyday.

Our company is a family business located on our farm in Southern Middle Tennessee. Coming from farming and hard-working backgrounds, we were instilled with a desire to create and produce useful, meaningful products with our hands. Kápia Méra Soap Company began out of that desire with a focus on natural, chemical-free, and quality bath and body products. We are driven to produce products of the highest standards that we, ourselves, would be willing to purchase and use.

The name Kápia Méra is Greek for “some day” and was the name of my husband’s family farm. Out of our desire to honor Steve’s Dad and the farm he loved and also because it took us so long to find our passion in soap making, we chose to continue the tradition and call our company Kápia Méra Soap Company.

  1. Hi ! I discovered your channel on youtube and I love it ! I will do my first soaps this summer and I still have an interrogation. You do exactly what I would like to try (different colours, swirls, etc.), that’s why I come to you for help ! When you have a recipe, and you have an amount of superfat, and you would like to add some colours infused into olive oil, do you take in consideration this tiny amount of supp oil coloured ? It’s difficult to explain what I mean exactly (I’m from Switzerland and speak french :-) ). Or, do you have a recipe, with an amount of superfat, and you add the colours you want, without taking care of the supp amount of oil coloured you put in it ?
    Basically, what I would like to know is, how do you develop a recipe which contains some coloured oils ?
    Thank you very much for your answer and your help !

    Best regards

    • Thank you, Sarah! And thanks for watching my videos. As far as my infused oil colorants, I have a basic rule that I follow. If I’m coloring a small amount of soap for a complicated swirl, I will simply add up to 2 teaspoons of my infused oil (plus additional herbs and spices if needed) and not worry about the superfat or subtracting from the recipe. My infused oils are very dark and intense, so that generally works for me. If I’m coloring a large amount of soap (like an entire batch with one color), I will subtract a percentage of the total oils and then add it back in the form of my infused oil. I created a video on how I color small and large amounts using these methods, in case you’re interested – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0UL2xSrIyI
      Thank you again! And good luck with your soap making.
      Holly :)
