About Us

about.jpg

We hand-craft clean, natural soap and skin care products in small batches from scratch.  Life on an island in the middle of Lake Erie inspires our soaps. We are inspired by simplicity, the seasons, living in the moment, the water, the earth,  friendship, and community.  We like to sit around the campfire and tell stories, and there's a story behind each of our soaps and products.

Kelleys Island sits in the Western Basin of Lake Erie in Ohio just shy of the international border with Canada. There is not a single stop light. On a clear night, you can see a billion stars. Neighbors drop by for a drink without texting first to see if you are home. Cell phone service is spotty, and that’s just fine.

The island is surrounded by fresh water, and we’d like to keep it that way. We don’t put anything in our soap that shouldn’t go into our Lake. Our soaps are free of parabens, palm oil, sulphates, phthalates, triclosan, and synthetic dyes and fragrances.  We give a portion of the profit from each bar to causes that protect clean water.
