...to Old World style, handmade artisan soap...Simply Soap!
Simply Soap officially began business in 1994. A simple idea, in a simple kitchen, by a simple gal frustrated with her own sensitive skin issues. With a background in nursing, gardening, and art...as well as being a throwback to many old ways, the idea came naturally:.....
Why not get back to early, uncomplicated methods of making soap instead of current detergent bars? Once current labels were deciphered, it was easy to choose to let's make soap free of fillers, antibiotic-laced animal fat, residue & chemicals. Instead let's allow simple pure ingredients and the natural plant magic of herbs and essential oils cleanse & nourish the skin as they were *meant to*!
Sometimes, so-called "progress" in our modern world does not mean true advancement, and you actually have to step-back-in-time to re-discover true quality! I delight in re-creating the past, as well as personally & knowledgeably selecting each and every ingredient, knowing exactly what's in your soap, and what's NOT!
|- Pure vegetable oils and butters (sustainably harvested)
|- 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oil scenting, and/or phthalate-free fragrance oil scenting
|- Herbs, botanicals, clays and teas chosen and infused into the soap for their therapeutic values
|- And just as important... the chants, intentions, and positive murmurings that also go into our soaps, by someone who LOVES creating them!
Clearly this idea caught on with so many of you, too! Twenty + years since those simple beginnings and I'm still making Simply Soap for you!
