In his small factory in Orange County, Conrad Metz, methodically pours the latest batch of his beard oil into palm sized bottles that will eventually ship to his customers. Beard oil? First, I can't even grow a beard to save my life. Second, Beard oil? Apparently, it's a hot item, and his product is flying off the shelf. Then there's a batch of handcrafted soap bars across the factory floor, curing, before being packaged into individual white boxes.
"Meiling Soap" is an up and coming handcrafted soap business and a labor of love started by the former real estate agent, Conrad Metz. His products have made it to Amazon Prime and with increased demand for his line of soaps including the popular, "Morning Wood", Conrad will be looking for a larger factory soon.
The road of entrepreneurs is often a lonely one and in Conrad's case, occasional lye burns, facing uncertainties of the market, and running short of supplies is all part of the journey of a vagabond spirit. Conrad's soap and beard oil can be found on his website.
