The beginning of Sabaneto Soaps began long before soap was ever a thought in Shlomo Keshet's mind. It started when he and his wife, Na’ami welcomed their 4th born son into the world. Elnatan was born with Down Syndrome into a family of six boys. As Elnatan grew, Shlomo understood his responsibility as a father to give his sons, especially Elnatan the ability to sow into the Land and the communities of Israel.
For many years Shlomo had worked as a manager at an Olive Oil company, where his passion for the nature and soil of Israel was increased. This inspired him to plant his own olive grove in the hills of Benjamin. After his first olive harvest, Shlomo came upon the idea of creating handmade, natural, healthy soaps. What began as more of a hobby turned into a beautiful family business. Shlomo continued his experimenting with all-natural soaps; developing formulas, expanding his workplace, and collecting natural growing herbs.
Today Shlomo’s business has grown to be a small factory nestled in the hills of Kochav HaShachar (The Morning Star), the city where he and his family reside. Elnatan works in the factory alongside his father, where he helps stamp, label, wrap and ship these precious handmade soaps produced with love from the hills of Benjamin.
We talked with Shlomo about his work and his vision looking toward the future. He told us that his goal is to employ as many handicapped people from Judea and Samaria as possible. He currently has 2 other special needs people working for him and he wants to expand for more. This is truly a worthy mission, and we are inviting you to come on board to help establish this incredible, exciting vision and experience top quality, natural, organic soaps from the heartland of Israel in your home.
