Artisan Soap that’s More than Just Eye Candy: How Soapcreek Company Is Cleaning Up Body Care Ingredients One Bar at a Time

As an artist, I would love to have all my things, especially the beauty products in a artisan style. The beautiful artisan-crafted soaps are always the ones I have on my beauty bar. They are often looked at as a piece of beauty or eye-catching bath decor, but one company committed to making natural body care is “raising the bar” with how you get clean.

Soapcreek Company is making more than another pretty soap. It’s leaving out synthetic fragrances, dyes, and other harsh chemicals and replacing them with sustainably-sourced essential oils, natural clays, minerals, butters, and herbs.

Speaking of ingredients, it leaves the traditionally removed glycerin alone and for your benefit. This compound only adds to skin’s moisture and contributes to the rich lather leaving you feeling silky smooth once rinsed off.

The meaning of natural doesn’t stop at the ingredients used. Soapcreek abandons the ideals of modern soap making with complicated, technical processes for handmade products.

How are the ingredients chosen, based on what criteria?  Quality, Quality, Quality. While some companies tend to cut corners with less expensive ingredients, Soapcreek Company tarted theirs with the idea in mind to make the very best. From the base oils to the essential oils Soapcreek Company order in samples and test them in small batches to see how the effect the finished product. For instance Soapcreek Company tried eight different lavender oils before finding the one that met their expectations for a finished product. Their motto is to begin with the end in mind.

Old-fashioned Quality and Craftsmanship 

Not only are these products made in the USA, but they’re also crafted the labor-intensive way hand-poured and hand-mixed. There’s an actual person overseeing every step of the soap-making process from making sure the right ingredients get added at the proper time and in the proper amounts, to verifying that the mixing is thorough and complete. The end result is an original, artistic product.
