We are located in beautiful Deep River, Ontario, Canada. Everything we make is handmade and hand-wrapped. For more information, see “Our Story”.
They smell better than synthetic fragrances and artificial perfumes which contain chemicals that should never leave the science lab. We DO NOT use chemicals in any of our products. It’s that simple! We are focused on bringing our valued customers the best quality that nature has to offer so we do our best to source the purest, therapeutic grade essential oils for our products. Essential oils are highly concentrated and are derived from the earth itself - true botanicals that provide valuable psychological and physical therapeutic benefits. Pure essential oils are all-natural. As an example - lavender is a botanical treasure with more than 5,000 molecular compounds full of healthy properties. Lavender is also non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing.
At The Savvy Soaperie we create pure natural soap with carefully selected wholesome, organic, naturally nourishing, responsibly sourced, sustainable, 100% natural plant oils, rich organic plant butters, pure essential oils, organic herbs, seeds, fruits, vegetables and flowers.   Once we have carefully selected our ingredients, we create our handmade skin-loving luxurious soaps by using the traditional technique of soapmaking called the Cold Process Method. We have chosen this method because it is the best way to protect the valuable properties and health benefits of the plant oils and other organicingredients used to make our soap.   What this means is that:
  • We do not boil the natural oils.
  • We do not separate the glycerin produced during the saponification process.
  • Because we do not heat any oils or ingredients with using the traditional Cold Process Method, our soap retains all the natural glycerin which is beneficial to the skin (glycerin is the good stuff and is often taken out of commercial soap and sold to the cosmetic industry).
  • Our soap contains all the natural properties and health benefits of the raw natural oils such as olive oil and raw shea butter.
  • The saponification process is slow and the soap needs to be aged for 8 weeks in a special room with natural ventilation.
  • Our soap is biodegradable.
  • Our soap is kind to our skin and to our planet.
  • We have not wasted the nutrients in our carefully selected natural organic ingredients. That’s correct …we have not boiled the daylight out of them!
  Saponification requires a lot more time in the Cold Process Method of soapmaking than in the “hot process” method. That is one of the reasons why the “traditional cold process method” IS NOT being used by large corporations where huge amounts of soap are produced to supply global markets.
We do this the natural way with 100% pure natural aromatic essential oils. Nothing else!
Our soap bars are true real soap made with 100% natural organic plant oils and organic plant butters like raw shea butter and cocoa butter. Our soap bars cleanse and nourish the skin instead of stripping the natural flora from the skin. They are not the harsh, petroleum-derived commercially produced detergent soap bars you find in most stores. The chemicals in those harsh bars enter your body through your skin, and also pollute our streams, rivers, lakes and oceans. Our soap bars are all biodegradable and are kind to our planet.
Because each and every bar we make begins with our special blend of 100% pure plant oils, ALL our soaps are moisturizing. Our soap bars all respect the natural flora of your skin and they will all nourish and rejuvenate your skin. Some of our bars contain extra emollients such as almond oil, cocoa butter and raw shea butter. These luxurious butters will further soothe and soften your skin.
Even if we don’t use preservatives, our soap lasts a long time. After a few years the bars will lose a bit of moisture but will lather and clean just fine.
Absolutely not! All our soaps and skincare products are made of 100% pure plant oils, plant butters like raw shea butter and pure essential oils. For more information, look at our ingredients.
