About

When handcraft prevails over business...

Imagine an array of body cares in all their simplicity ... Edible vegetable oils, essential oils, quality and authenticity without compromise. Soaps which are suitable for all skin types. A family business committed and green. Happy people. Loyal and satisfied customers with whom we share our dream since 2005. Good news now flies beyond our borders! Sweet dreams to all...


The Story Behind:

Back in 2005, Marie-Eve Lejour was a redactor and mom of two beautiful toddlers, Marc-Aurèle and Violette. Just like her, the little ones were suffering from eczema. After carefully reading an ingredient list on a soap label, she thought to herself : "We could make some!" She then turned to her good friend and father of their children, Sebastien Boismenu, in order to create natural soaps and other body products that could relieve and sooth their sensitive and fragile skin.

With time, practice and a strong willpower, the project of the Soapery (named " La Savonnerie des Diligences" in french) was born!

Through years and - let's be realistic - through several hurdles too, the family micro-business grew into a SME (small to medium enteprise) and is now considered as a reference in the field of natural cosmetics within Quebec.

More determined than ever, Marie-Ève became the principal and only Soapery stockholder in 2012. Today, she is surrounded by a incredible, talented, and above all, a truly happy team! Because the enterprise doesn't exist just for the stockholder's capital. To us, it acts both as a living environment and a vehicle for values. 💙

Q1 - Are your soaps natural ?

A1 - Yes, our soaps are made right here in our soap factory with olive oil, organic coconut oil and beeswax (Frelighsburg). They contain no synthetic fragrances (only essential oils or natural ingredients like honey, cocoa and oatmeal), and no additives, stabilizers or preservatives. They are plant-based and biodegradable and can be used on your body, face and hair.

Q2 - Are your soaps organic ?

A2 - The Soleil de l'Est range of soaps are made from organic oils, but we chooose not to certify the product. Many of the ingredients we use are organic, such as coconut oil (100% of the ingredients in our stain remover soap) the shea butter, coconut oil, hemp oil and sunflower oil, but not all are. However, they are neither synthetic nor GMO like many other vegetable oils (palm, soya, canola, etc.). We make the best possible choices and work with local producers whenever possible (Champy for sunflower oil, Naturressence for evergreen essential oils).

Q3- Do you make liquid soap ?

A3 - No, and we have no plans to do so. You should know that in order for it to remain liquid, all liquid soaps contain a large proportion of additives (for the texture), stabilizers and preservatives. That means that unless it has a best before date in the 3 to 6 months after it is made, liquid soap is not *natural*. Furthermore, they contain a large proportion of water (first ingredient) and come in a bottle that is rarely recycled and/or reused. As a company, we have made an environmental choice to offer our customers bar soap instead of liquid soap. Did you know that the bottle accounts for about 40% of the cost of production? First you pay for the bottle and the water, then the rest.

Q4 - Do your soaps dissolve quickly ?

A4 - No! When you buy artisanal soap, after each use, it is important to allow it to dry on something that allows air to circulate – the underside of the soap has to be able to dry, ideally on a soap rack. A family of four using the soap daily for their body, face and hair should expect to go through a bar about every two weeks.

Q5 - Do I have to let the soap cure ?

A5 - Soaps have to cure (dry) for 30 days before being used. When you buy our soap, it has already cured – no need for additional curing. If you buy several bars of soap at a time, you should know that olive oil soap hardens in the air, so do not wrap them up to keep them. If stored several months, it will become harder and could last longer, but use it within one year of purchase for best quality.

Q6 - How long do your products keep ?

A6 - To ensure optimal quality, we recommend you use our soaps, lip balms and deodorants in the year following purchase, and our body butters and shea butter in the two years following purchase.
