We are inspired by the magnificence of the sphere we live in. It is our untiring mission to deliver a little piece of the beauty we experience every day by creating an unequaled artisan product bursting with the vibrancy of nature. Because we are zealous about promoting good health and a green planet, our motive is to create the very finest natural body care products. Each batch of soap is meticulously mixed by hand then lovingly shaped into a unique artistic design. Our products are not only pleasing to the eye, but are brimming over with completely natural essential nutrients and luscious moisturizing agents.
We have made it our duty to use only the finest ingredients in our products. We are fastidious about keeping our products free of synthetic fragrances, dyes and other harsh chemicals to ensure a more natural approach to body care. We assure you that essential oils, natural clays, minerals, butters, and herbs are used in place of harmful chemicals found in traditional body care products.
Our earth is precious to us so we make every effort to preserve and replenish the life-giving resources it offers. We are careful to use minimal packaging from renewable sources. Only sustainable plant resources are used in our products.
How does hand mixed and poured improve the product quality? In an age where most personality is lost with high tech software and equipment, and most labor intensive jobs are farmed out to cheap labor out of country, Soapcreek is dedicated to bringing you old fashioned quality and craftsmanship the original American way. Hand mixing allows an actual person to oversee every step of the soap-making process from making sure the right ingredients get added at the proper time and in the proper amounts, to verifying that the mixing is thorough and complete. Hand pouring brings out the artistic side of people just like a professional chef gets creative in a kitchen that is stocked with the best of ingredients.
How are the ingredients chosen, based on what criteria? Quality, Quality, Quality. While some companies tend to cut corners with less expensive ingredients, we started ours with the idea in mind to make the very best. From the base oils to the essential oils we order in samples and test them in small batches to see how the effect the finished product. For instance we tried eight different lavender oils before finding the one that met our expectations for a finished product. Our motto is to begin with the end in mind.
Replenish and Moisturize
How is the Artisan soap helping to replenish oils or moisture to the skin that other soaps remove? One of the modern soap making processes is to remove the glycerin from the oils before the soap making occurs. The coveted glycerin is then used in many other applications from the food industry to beauty products. At Soapcreek we leave the naturally occurring glycerin in our food grade oils, and it is retained in the finished product, making what we believe is a superior product. We carefully calculate the amount of each of the olive, coconut, ricebran oils used in the soap to give you a moisture rich lather that leaves a lotion-like nourishment when finished bathing.
What is aromatherapy exactly for someone who doesn’t understand what it means? Aromatherapy by definition is using pure plant oils for psychological and physical well-being. Our goal of creating the best has led us to find out that splurging on the most expensive ingredients (essential oils) sets us apart from the rest.
