Meet the Makers
At Rosendale Waxworks, we believe in products that can redefine a space. Products that are made with simple, natural ingredients and handcrafted from scratch. We believe in makers, both local and afar, that use their hands to sculpt, pour, and build, their minds to design, and their hearts to create. Hand selected by our shop owner and curator, Wilda, all of our makers and their products fit the bill.

From that point forward, Sue and her family developed a unique proprietary process for creating their hand crafted batches of soap.
In 1982, Gary Austin hand-made an olive oil Castile soap for his two-year-old son, Aaron, who was allergic to grocery-aisle-soap. After realizing that there was a community of people with sensitive skin who would benefit from Gary’s soap, SallyeAnder and the commitment to creating the best soap in America was born. Since then, every product decision has been made with one intention: delivering the highest quality, all-natural skincare solutions to our customers.
