Artisan-crafted soaps are often looked at as a piece of beauty or eye-catching bath decor, but one company committed to making natural body care is “raising the bar” with how you get clean in these challenging times.
The following is a sponsored post in partnership with Soapcreek Company. All opinions are 100% my own.
Soapcreek Company is making more than another pretty soap. They’re leaving out synthetic fragrances, dyes, and other harsh chemicals. Instead, they are replacing them with sustainably-sourced essential oils, natural clays, minerals, butters, and herbs.
Speaking of ingredients, it leaves the traditionally removed glycerin alone and for your benefit. This compound only adds to skin’s moisture and contributes to the rich lather leaving you feeling silky smooth once rinsed off.
The meaning of natural doesn’t stop at the ingredients used. Soapcreek abandons the ideals of modern soap making with complicated, technical processes for handmade products.

Old-fashioned Quality and Craftsmanship
Not only are these products made in the USA, but they’re also crafted the labor-intensive way hand-poured and hand-mixed. There’s an actual person overseeing 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. The end result is an original, artistic product.
Founded by Roxanne and Fred Johnson, Soapcreek Company is the Utah-based maker of organic certified artisan soaps and skincare essentials. The brand name comes from Fred’s favorite destination to visit within the Grand Canyon in Arizona. While Roxanne experimented with homemade soap-making as a kid, she became an expert as a wife and mom to provide natural body care for her son’s health. Diagnosed with thyroid problems, the family needed to make an entire lifestyle change from their diet to abandoning synthetic fragrance, dyes and chemicals frequently found in body care items. Sharing her homemade soap with friends and neighbors, she saw the holistic benefits it had for others. What started out as a small basement start-up has become a large-scale facility devoted to making body care products. Using minimal, recyclable packaging, the Soapcreek Company encourages people to conserve, re-use, recycle, and make the world a better place for all.
My results after testing these products on myself:
My bathing experience this morning was heightened to a luxurious degree after using Soapcreek. My shower was transformed into a mini-spa. My skin felt soft and moisturized; there was no greasy residue or “tight” feeling after I rinsed off. All that was left was a wonderfully “clean” feeling and a light, lavender scent.
These soaps are beautiful. It makes a thoughtful gift, for yourself and for your loved ones, and the ideal soap to stock up on right now.
