Let us introduce you to Old World style artisan, handmade soap.....Simply Soap!

handmade handcrafted soap Simply Soap Carol Ochs wholesale retail logs bulk



Simply Soap officially began business in 1994, as a simple idea, in a simple kitchen, by a simple gal frustrated with her own sensitive skin issues.


With a nursing and gardening background, her idea was...Let's try nixxing modern chemical products, and go back to early, uncomplicated methods of making soap! Let's make soap as free of fillers, animal fat, residue & chemicals as possible, and let simple pure ingredients nourish the skin & senses as they were *meant to* .....just true vegetable/fruit oil soap, perhaps a wee bit of artistic flair, and of course, no animal testing...and let's see what happens! And it worked! No more skin sensitivities!


Hence our trademarked name, "Simply Soap". We delight in our ability to personally & knowledgeably select each and every oil, herb and botanical ingredient to stir into our premium handmade soaps! Clearly a simple soap idea caught on with many of you, too! That simple gal KNEW she was not alone in her quest for simplicity!


Twenty + years since our simple beginnings, we're still making Simply Soap for you...

.....(albeit we outgrew the kitchen and moved into a workshop).

Oils/ingredients measured.
Melted oils and sodium hydroxide solution mixed.
Raw soap poured into molds.

Cured/cut/trimmed/labeled soap packed for an order to ship-out.


We started with a small range of just 10 premium handmade soaps. It wasn't long before our newfound customer base on the then-burgeoning internet began asking for specific scents, or special needs soaps. It can truly be said that we've grown based on customer feedback and requests...we listen to you!


We now offer dozens of varieties including several unique specialty lines you'll not find anywhere else! One thing has never changed......we keep ingredients simple, and the best we can possibly find! We're a bit bigger now but the most important ingredient we STILL add to every bar is the love for what we do!


Come explore our offerings! Feel the skin-nourishing difference naturally-made soap can make in your bathing! If you're taking showers or baths just to get clean, you're missing an exquisite experience for the enjoying!


Thanks for your interest!
