A tiny uniquely popular skin care and beauty soap company was established in Brooklyn, NY by C. Kay Manos (Pantzis) in 1940, called Manos Soap. Manos Soap Co.™ was also the name of her unique products. The recipe from the Greek Isles from her travels from Greece along with Kay’s passion are still the inspiration that results in face and body care Manos Soap Co.™ products that emulate nature in all its simplicity and purity. The wide range of Manos Soap Co.™ nutrient-packed products means there’s something to make everyone feel clean and beautiful.
After the long trips to her new home in New York, Kay began to recreate the soap from Greece in her Brooklyn kitchen. Later she moved to Norwalk, Connecticut and opened Kay's Luncheonette with her brother, George. There she and her ever-growing family began experimenting with cold-process soap making. The small handcrafted batches became so popular that the company began to formulate new personal care products and expand beyond soap now in Greenwich, CT. Two generations later, her grandson and his girlfriend manages the company that currently sells the Manos Soap Co.™ products.
Manos Soap Co.™ was reestablished in 2013 in Greenwich, Connecticut by Kay's grandson, Robb and significant other Dana. Its our mission to channel our inspiration to always embody Kay’s traditions to produce uniquely small batches of skin care products using natural ingredients that are vegan and free from sulfate, paraben, phthalate, gluten and palm oil. To create quality products that portray culture and simplicity. With a wide range of natural nutrient-packed products to chose from, there’s something for everyone.
