We are passionate about natural soaps and skincare, effective and safe for everyone, from babies to the environment.
We began in 2009 like so many other companies--out of necessity. Our co-founder Dr. Sandra Metzler wanted healthy and effective skincare products for her family to use. But so many products were made from synthetic detergents and contained artificial fragrances and preservatives and other ingredients she knew weren't healthy. Using her background in biomedical engineering and her knowledge of chemistry and aromatherapy, she started making soap in her kitchen on Glenn Avenue in Grandview Heights, Ohio.
In 2013 Sandra's partner Phil (also an engineer) decided to turn their soapmaking hobby into a full fledged business. A year later, they moved the soap lab out of their living room into our current facilities at 1166 W 5th Ave with a total of 4,200 sf of beautiful retail and workshop space. Customers can browse and sample products, learn about natural skincare and see how real soap is made.
A unique product we've become known for is our natural foaming soap. Making foaming soaps with traditional methods is technically much more difficult than making bar soap, so many small craft soap makers don't attempt it. And, because the natural ingredients used to make our soaps are expensive (organic extra virgin olive oil, organic sunflower oil and organic coconut oil) big companies don't make them. Silky lather and amazing scents make our foaming soaps such a delight to use we have built a business providing bulk soap and wall mounted dispensers to many of Columbus's premier breweries, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, venues and businesses of all sorts. Our largest customer is the Greater Columbus Convention Center- they have over 365 sinks! Follow this link to learn about becoming a commercial customer.
We continue to make an ever broadening line of natural soap & skincare products for you to enjoy; crafted by hand in small batches, using traditional methods, with support from modern scientific data.
