About Real Good Bath and Body

Real Good Bath and Body started out as a hobby in Carol’s kitchen with the hopes that making a few hundred soaps a month could earn her a little extra money. With help from her thoughtful husband, she received a hobby soap making kit and eventually, her kitchen hobby turned into a business. Real Good Bath and Body donates to worthy causes like women’s shelters, refugee camps, safe houses, food bands, the United Way, community fundraisers, and an animal shelter! This illustrates Real Good Bath and Body’s mission of “Do good. Feel good.” Carol says, “Real Good has real and good ingredients, but it all started with the idea of doing real good in the world. So, with every purchase you make, a little goes back to making the world a better place.” Real Good Bath and Body currently has two locations. They retail at the West Acres Mall in Fargo, North Dakota and a retail and manufacturing spot in Crookston, Minnesota. Carol finds it important to be reminded that every person has value and is worthy of love. “Making products allows me to spread that love,” says Carol. Making products for Real Good Bath and Body is all worth it to Carol when her customers express they can feel the love and good in them.
