About Our Soaps
We started making soap in our kitchen over 3 years ago after years of spending too much of our hard-earned money on soaps, lotions, dermatologist visits and prescriptions, which seemed to only temporarily resolved our family's skin issues. Everything from acne, eczema and psoriasis, to dull, sensitive, itchy skin plagued our family of four, year after year.
After only a few months, of using only homemade soaps, we no longer visit the dermatologist regularly or buy expensive lotions and soaps. Our family's skin is not itchy, or dull anymore, and although there is no cure for eczema and psoriasis, "flare-ups" are very few and far between these days.
So, we founded Mel's Soap Shop in 2018 after realizing there was a huge need for a skin-loving soap product in the marketplace, one that does more than clean your skin. We listened to our friends and family discuss their own personal skin issues time and time again, and after asking them to give our bars "a shot", they all returned with shocked expressions and joyous testimonies!
By not removing the soap qualities our skin naturally needs and craves, which is what happens to mass-produced soap, our bars of soap are skin-loving! They are soft, smooth, and have a luxurious quality which is felt by our customers long after their shower!!
Our Soaps are made using quality ingredients and by hand to ensure each bar is created with only the best.
Many of our Soaps contain Fragrance Oils, Essential Oils, or a combination of both.
Our Soaps are
Sulfate Free, Paraben Free, Preservative Free and Gluten Free
Cruelty Free - All Soaps are tested on us first!!
Almost all of our Soaps are Vegan friendly - Occasionally we will use an animal by-product in our Soap, be sure to check the ingredient list, or reach out to us with questions or concerns.
Our Soaps are made one at a time and in small batches. We also cut, store and package all of our Soap by ourselves. Because our soaps are handmade and hand cut, each bar can vary in size slightly and each batch can vary in color slightly. No two are ever the same!!
The approximate weight of the Soap is listed on all packaging and is based on the smallest bar from the same batch.
As always, send us a message, call or email us if you have any questions or concerns!
We LOVE to hear from YOU!
