SMM RJK: Karen Copeland- Going Back to the Roots of Making a Good Product

Show notes by show producer: Anna Nygren

In this episode, Randy and Karen Copeland discuss:

  • The back story of Sammysoap
  • The impact of having intellectual disabilities
  • Going straight to the plant
  • Karen’s opinions on good management

Key Takeaways:

  • The story of Sammysoap is very much a mother bear story of necessity
  • If you’ve got an intellectual disability, you’re able to stay in the public school system until you’re 21
  • Your skin absorbs what you put on it! So you shouldn’t put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t put in your mouth
  • Tomato is a great antioxidant and works well for greasy skin too!


“Sammysoap is a job creation machine for adults with intellectual disabilities disguised as the world’s best soap company.” – Karen Copeland
