The concept for DIYS Soap came to Erica Linger in the summer of 2015.
“I was inspired to make my own body cream for my daughter’s dry skin, she had very dry skin and eczema. After not finding any suitable products in the drugstore, I researched online and created the ‘I Kid You Not’ body cream. I found it difficult to find the ingredients and in the small quantity I needed for each batch. As a result, I came up with the idea to make DIY packages for people to make their own skincare. I started with a webshop and opened our store in Amsterdam in 2017. In December 2020 we opened an spacious atelier in Leiden, and in June 2021 the original store in Amsterdam was closed.”
