The Old Town Soap Company (TOTSC) is a Black Owned, Woman Owned, and Certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned and Operated Small Business (SDVOSB) which specializes in natural Personal Care & Wellness education and products.  

Founded in 2012 by Ernestine Brown, she originally used the art of Soapmaking as a form of mental therapy while serving in the Military.  Then, upon realizing its powerful effects along with the many benefits of her all-natural products, she was eager to help others and began selling her products at various Festivals and Farmer’s Markets. Ernestine now leads a successful brick-and-mortar retail store operation at Historic Liberty Public Market in San Diego, California where she provides an escape for stressed visitors and those suffering from various skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis and Rosacea.  

Additionally, Ernestine takes great pride in training and mentoring her team which also consists of aspiring Entrepreneurs.  A few of The Old Town Soap Company's values include transparency, trust, and teamwork (TTT) which she believes is one of the many ways to build a successful company and community.
