We at SoIN Tourism are lucky to have such great partners in our community. This year, we’ve started a Visitors Center’s Partner Spotlight program to showcase some of those partners.

The Partner Spotlight Program helps us shine a light on local businesses and collaborate with them to produce merchandise that represents the creativity, entrepreneurialism, and perseverance of southern Indiana.

Our first collaboration is with New Albany’s Wimsatt Soap Company, the shop pictured above.

Wimsatt Soap Co Shop

Paula Wimsatt and members of SoIN Tourism’s staff worked together to design a candle fragrance that captures part of the spirit of southern Indiana.

Wimsatt Soap Candle Smelling

A full-bodied blend of bourbon and vanilla, the SoIN candle is a welcome scent to accompany your evening indoors escaping the cold.

In addition to handcrafting candles, soaps, lotions, and bath bombs, Wimsatt Soap Company supports local charities.

Wimsatt Soap Bath Bombs

For every four bars of soap sold, Wimsatt donates one to Volunteers of America Mid-States Freedom House, an organization that helps pregnant and parenting moms who struggle with substance use disorder.
