Carolyn Camp  |  Soap

I made my first batch of soap in 1995 using a recipe from a book found in the local library. After much trial and error, I created my own recipe that would become the base for many custom handcrafted soaps. After many years of making and creating new soaps and other natural skin care products to share with friends and family, I decided to take the products out into the public. I began marketing my soap at home craft sales and farmers markets. The response was positive.

There were many return customers who loved the soaps and bought them for friends as well as for themselves. The soap has been used and enjoyed both locally and throughout the world. The truly natural products are vegan, cruelty free, biodegradable minimally packaged and do not contain many of the harmful ingredients that are found in commercial skin care products. Products commonly found in commercial products are preservatives, petroleum products, FD and C colorants or dyes, parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, laureth sulfate, triclosen TEA. You don’t like to eat food that contains harmful ingredients, please don’t use harmful ingredients on your body either. These ingredients are absorbed by your body and some of them are known carcinogens.

I aim to run this business in an eco-friendly and socially responsible manner. This includes the use of recyclable and/or reusable shipping and packaging materials. The paper the labels are printed on is made of 50% recycled paper and I hope that you will recycle them as well. You won’t see plastic cellophane or shrink-wrap on my soap bars!
