Home - About Me

Hi There!

I’m Daria, the founder and sole operator of darsbars

A couple years ago I was working as a social worker in Toronto, supporting people with intellectual disabilities.  It was approaching the holiday season and my wallet was wearing thin. While searching for gifts for my huge Italian familia, I thought to myself why not try making gifts this year?

What started as a little holiday crafting quickly turned into a fulfilling hobby and before I knew it, I was running the darsbars business full time. I soon found myself fascinated with researching the science and art of soap making.  Combining my love of skincare and my social work background, I made it my mission to use the finest all natural ingredients that are environmentally sustainable and ethically sourced.  From zesting lemons for sugar scrubs, to spooning honey for oatmeal bars, each darsbars item is handmade in small batches and crafted with love and care.

Like you, I want to trust the products I bring into my home and use on my body. You can take pride in knowing that all of my products are made with ingredients free of synthetic and unknown additives, locally produced, and never tested on animals. To top it off darsbars products are gorgeous and smell delightful!

Future plans for darsbars focus on offering employment opportunities to Torontonians living with intellectual disabilities.

 Thank you for supporting small local businesses,
