Why its called Soap
The name Soap comes from the initial idea for the product. When we originally sat down and discussed what would become Soap, we were designing a product that filtered Internet content that you didn't want your kids seeing online, thus Soap cleans your Internet. As Soap evolved and became the great product it currently is, the name Soap stuck.
Made in the USA
Not only was Soap designed right here in Colorado, but we also have done everything we can to keep the production of Soap in the United States and that is why we have chosen to do Soap's manufacturing in Santa Anna, CA with Express Manufacturing Incorporated.
Here are a some images of the facility in California that is printing and assembling the Soap PCB.
The Soap PCB
We are in the last stage of production as we go into manufacturing our first 5 final retail units. We have worked through 6 different prototype revisions and have settled with this one.
