Aim higher

Feelin' grungy? Dare to clean up the planet and your self esteem with ethical, healthy, sustainable ingredients and botanicals harvested right here in Washington State.

If you’ve been looking for alternative skincare to fit your alternative lifestyle, Grunge Goddess is in your stars. Step away from the beige lavender hippie soap, ditch the plastic packaging and the toxic, unsustainable ingredients you use on your skin. Let’s do better. Join my skincare revolution with a rebellious palette of colors and an ethereal bouquet of scents guaranteed to give your inner goddess the confidence to shine through.

I have a bachelor’s degree in mostly chemistry [medical laboratory science to be exact], so you can leave it to me to find the perfect formulation for your unique skin. I have been featured as a guest soapmaking blogger on The Making Life and Apple Inspired Life.

Let this testimonial speak for itself:

Your soap has been a godsend in our house. Seriously. So obsessed! … I don’t have to use dry shampoo all the time anymore. My hair lays nicer than it has in a long time and it feels great. Your facial soap also makes my face feel like it has a natural toner in it to lock in moisture. And it works great on my kids. Love, love, love!

clarissa mugshotI’m Clarissa and I live in Spokane, Washington with my boyfriend and our daughter. I’m a medical laboratory scientist by trade. I began making soap for myself in 2014 because I wanted a more fun, more eco-conscious take on natural soap to ease my complex skin needs. I soon founded the company Athena’s Soap to share my skin solutions with the world which is now known as Grunge Goddess.

My mission is to serve up healthy, ethical bath and body treats with a flair of edge, ethereal, and eclectic. 

My vision is to raise consciousness of how we treat our planet and how we treat ourselves.

My promise is to use my company as leverage to benefit charity and raise awareness about mental health and equality. This may look like donating to local organizations, vending at fundraising events, and donating scraps to shelters and national organizations such as Clean the World.

I’m especially sensitive of the topic of mental health because I’ve lost four people to suicide, including my mom on August 10, 2020. My first ever charity soap, The Hopeful Soap, directly benefits To Write Love On Her Arms. This nonprofit brings hope and help to those suffering from depression, self-harm, anxiety, addiction, and suicidal ideation.

Here’s what I have in store for you:
