          We're on a mission to create handmade products that are free of harsh ingredients and full of nourishing plant-based goodies to make your skin happy.

          WHY WE MAKE SOAP

          Can we get on our soapbox a minute? Most of the trusted brands you're washing up with are made with detergents, chemicals and tallow, which is just another name for cow fat (umm... gross). Sulfates, artificial detergents and parabens can cause irritation, trigger allergies and have other unpleasant side effects.

          That doesn't exactly say "refreshing shower" to us. So we set out on a mission to find an alternative. After learning more about commercial soap ingredients, we found ourselves in a bit of a lather about the whole business.

          In 2013, we began experimenting with soap recipes that are safe for your skin and contain ingredients you can actually pronounce. After making a few big messes, we created something wonderful and Buff City Soap was born.


          We handcraft each bar of Buff City soap in what we call our Soap Makeries. Each of our locations makes every product sold right there, where you can see exactly what goes into the products you put on your body. It's a bit of a mad lab stocked with ingredients like rose petals, lavender buds, hemp seed oil, shea butter, charcoal, and tea tree oil. Even our body scrubs are squeaky clean with natural exfoliants like chopped loofah bits, crushed walnut shells, and poppy seeds. What you will never see are artificial detergents, surfactants, dyes, or other harsh chemicals.

          We even have our fragrances manufactured for us to ensure they are free of phthalates, parabens, and formaldehyde containing/forming ingredients. You can customize your products with the scent (or non-scent) of your choice and the ingredients that you prefer.

          The possibilities are endless!
