About the Creators and Owners of Skinny Dip Candles

Just who are the people behind Skinny Dip Candles? Far from being developed by folks wearing white coats in a corporate lab, the creators of Skinny Dip Candles were a mother / daughter entrepreneurial team, Karen and Laurel Porter. The duo was often asked, “How did you come up with the idea for these massage candles? If you are one of those curious folks, click to see the Skinny Dip story.

In the fall of 2012, after making a very difficult decision to do so, Karen and Laurel sold Skinny Dip Candles to a good friend, Patty Hagglund. After seven years nurturing and growing Skinny Dip Candles, they decided that the timing was right to move on. With health issues and other opportunities presenting themselves, it seemed a perfect time to turn the reins over to Patty. And they couldn’t envision a more perfect person to take over Skinny Dip Candles than Patty, someone who shared the same values as Karen and Laurel.
