I had a wonderful time at the Make It show in Vancouver on the weekend! I made some lovely new friends and sold out of our beautiful Van Gogh bars.

About

Soap as ART in the HEART of Vancouver!

Our soap is made in a very small kitchen in East Vancouver. It is made in small batches of between 8 and 14 bars with great attention to detail and lots and lots of love.

HERE'S HOW WE STARTED...

Felix-Marie Badeau is the matron of all things sudsy in this kitchen (thus the name Chateau Badeau). Felix-Marie started making soap for her family in 2007. It was lumpy, white and utilitarian but, damn, it was nice. Over time friends started requesting Felix's soap and she started to play and become more creative with the endeavor. Now, when she’s not making soap she’s certainly dreaming about and planning her next design. It kinda drives her family nuts but, thankfully, she’s pretty lovable ;0)

WHERE WE'RE AT NOW....

At Chateau Badeau our beautiful artisan soap designs are achieved by using a room temperature process and a variety of different pouring and layering techniques. We use colourants that are derived from natural sources like spirulina, anatto, activated charcoal and clays. Most of our soaps are scent free but when we do use scents they come only from pure essential oils, never fragrance oils or perfumes.

In a nutshell we are an artisan soap shop specializing in small batch vegetarian soaps made with the finest, natural ingredients in the city. We LOVE to love your body and, as creepy as that sounds, we take nourishing your skin seriously!

    I started making soap for my family many years ago. It was all natural, utilitarian and LOVELY! As I learned about design and the use of botanicals in my soap, my sudsy artistry became popular. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I have making it!

Welcome to Chateau Badeau Maison du Savon! We are a small savonnerie in Vancouver, British Columbia specializing in small batch, all natural, artisan soaps.

OUR INGREDIENTS:

First and foremost, our primary ingredient is LOVE! Really, we love what we do and it shows!

All of our other ingredients come from natural sources from around the world! Check some of them out!

Oils: Over time we have formulated the best mixture of oils to give us a soap that is hard, long-lasting, mild and FULL of bubbles (we like bubbles!). Some of those oils include avocado, olive oil, castor oil and coconut oil. We only use virgin olive oil (no pomace) and the palm oils that we use are supplied by a company that has completed the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Supply Chain Certification.

Scents: We do not use perfume oils, fragrance oils or any artificial scents. We do use essential oils and make use of the natural aromas of some of the ingredients that we use....like chocolate :0)

Colourants: This is our favourite part of soap making! We do not use any chemical colourants, micas, or man-made oxides. We use zinc oxide (naturally occurring) for whiteness when we need it (zinc is incredibly good for the skin and wound healing which is why you find it in baby bottom cream). We use clays from Australia, Canada, the US, and France. We also use botanicals such as parsley, ratanjot, espresso, and calendula.

Minerals: Sometimes we use 24k gold. Yes we do!
