We want to expand our successful operation to a larger audience and we need your help to get there.

New Construction
New Construction

1. We are in the midst of expanding our operations out of our home. Our new building, now under construction, will incorporate a small retail store and space for soap-making classes so we can share the joy of natural soaps. It will also give us the space we need for more efficient manufacturing.

2.  85% of our ingredients are Certified Organic. We are applying for certification to label our products organic through the USDA since we far exceed their minimum standard of 70%. Your funding will help us through that process.

3.Our primary focus is delivering high quality soaps. We will be developing a designer line in addition to our naturals which you see here. We use the program "Soapmaker" in developing our formulas assuring our customers of consistent results bar after bar.
