Why Buy From Us



Soap is one of the most important products in our daily lives, yet few of us ever stop to think about the ingredients in that bar of soap we’re using on our skin. Add to that, that our skin breathes (it is our third lung) and our skin is also our largest organ. There is no doubt that we NEED to be paying a whole lot more attention to what we use on our skin and what we feed our skin in the process. It is a living, breathing organ!

What goes onto our bodies and what goes into our bodies are both critical in order to maximize our health and well-being. Our skin and the earth are very similar. The soil soaks up everything it comes in contact with – sunlight, rain, snow, pesticides and environmental pollution. These all penetrate into the soil just like whatever goes onto our skin penetrates into our bodies.

Like little sheep we have been led to believe that big corporations have our best interest at heart and produce soap and skincare products that are beneficial to our skin and to our health. Take a few moments to study “Our Ingredients” and you will discover a different picture. Have a look at:

  • the list of natural ingredients we use in our soaps and skincare products
  • the wide selection of chemicals and synthetic ingredients used to make the soap that is mass produced and sold in our stores

The Savvy Soaperie’s “raison de vivre” is embedded in harnessing the power of nature to handcraft wholesome 100% natural, skin-loving soaps and skincare products that:

  • promote health
  • keep your skin naturally well-nourished
  • respect the flora of your skin
  • are kind to our ecosystems and to our planet

It has never been a secret that everything we need to cleanse, moisturize, and beautify ourselves already exists in nature. That’s why we use:

  • olive oil, coconut oil, and sunflower oil to moisturize and soothe skin
  • skin superfoods like pure essential oils that deliver powerful antioxidants and nutrients to smooth wrinkles and reduce blemishes
  • pure clays that gently exfoliate, soak up dead skin cells and naturally buff our skin to a glow
  • rich luxurious organic plant butters (like raw shea butter and cocoa butter)
  • organic herbs, seeds, fruits, vegetables and flowers loaded with nutrients, vitamins and minerals to nourish the skin
  • healing salts that soothe, cleanse and rejuvenate

Why large companies choose to use chemicals like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and petrochemicals to make soap and skincare products when Mother Nature has provided us with far superior ingredients is absolutely mind-boggling.

You have come to the right place. We believe that beauty, nature and health go hand in hand. We are passionate about making your skin both beautiful and healthy – the natural way. You will NEVER find sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and petrochemicals in any of our products.

  1. We have made the important choice of NOT using any chemicals, artificial colorants or artificial fragrances in any of our products, EVER!
  1. Our 100% natural soaps DO NOT strip the skin of its natural oils and they DO NOT change the nature of the surface of the skin like so many of the commercially produced soaps you find in the stores. With our naturally nourishing soaps and skincare products you can say goodbye to the dry, itchy and cracking skin forever!
  1. The beautiful aromas and healing properties of our pure therapeutic essential oils are in themselves reason enough to use our handmade natural soap and skincare products. We NEVER use those synthetic fragrances that are so full of chemicals that they take your breath away.
  1. We create our handmade skin-loving luxurious soaps by using the traditional technique of soapmaking called the Cold Process Method. Because we do not boil 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). Consequently, our soap contains all the natural properties and health benefits of the raw natural oils such as olive oil and raw shea butter.
  1. For nurturing the mind, body & spirit we also use 100% Pure Essential Oils in our Aromatherapy and Pure Soy Candles. We invite you to try these and indulge your soul!
  1. At the Savvy Soaperie, everything we do and all our resources are invested in treating your skin and the Earth equally well because we believe that by working together we can be healthier and we can make a difference one bar at a time!
  1. All our products are handmade in small batches to

ensure freshness and purity.

  1. We source many of our ingredients locally because:
  • We understand how our local businesses are the engine that drives our communities. By supporting them we contribute to the enrichment of our community.
  • When we buy local we also reduce our carbon footprint on this earth because products made closer to home require much less transportation.

We patronize small farms, farmer’s markets, buy local organic ingredients from our grocery stores and have also found some wonderful locally owned and operated businesses from which to buy organic ingredients.

12. We are also very proud of the fact that we stand among the rare soapmakers who DO NOT use synthetic colors, fragrances, and additives. Our handmade soaps are 100% natural.
