We make cold-processed lard and tallow soaps the old-fashioned way. Composed of nature’s finest fats, our soap leaves your skin feeling moisturized and conditioned to face harsh Northeastern winters or sun kissed coastal summers. Our bars are scented with high-quality essential oils and natural ingredients. Because no artificial fragrances or perfumes are used, our soap is ideal for sensitive skin.
Our process resembles that of the pioneers: a pure and simple chemistry of combining fat and lye. Our soap maker, Laurie, began dabbling in the art one winter, following the autumn harvest of a neighboring farm’s pigs, and has evolved to carry a diverse line of soaps. A botanical chemist at heart, Laurie’s meticulous scientific attention to detail is one of her finest attributes as a soapmaker. Her finely crafted scents are inspired by cherished memories, special characters, our bucolic landscape, and of course, beloved flowers.
Each small batch of thirty bars is carefully measured, poured, cut, imprinted with our logo, and hand-wrapped by Laurie in her home.
