    Mary Pilares or Soaper Mom is a full time mother of 3 kids, and the owner of local bath products brand The Soapranos. She started making bath bombs when her 7-year old daughter kept asking her to do so. Seeing her kids happy has fueled her passion for the craft. Mary is always delighted to hear how her clients use her bath bombs--especially since there are hardly any bathtubs in the Philippines. Apart from bathbombs, she also makes cold process soaps and DIY natural makeup!
