Announcement    Welcome to Camas Creek Soap Company! I started making soap as a way to provide a quality, simple product for family and friends who live and play in the beautiful outdoors of Idaho. With the harsh winters our skin tends to dry very quickly. Camas Creek Soap has become a local favorite for those looking for a gentle cleanser, a perfect gift or alternative for sensitive skin.
All of my soap is made is handcrafted in small batches, from a rich blend of olive, palm and coconut oils. Some bars contain an exotic butter to add different qualities to the batch. These vegetable oils and butters are gentle on the skin and great for soap making. Unlike commercial soap, handcrafted soap produces a high glycerin content from the soap making process. The milling process of commercial soap extracts the glycerin. What you get is a hard, long lasting bar that instead of moisturizing your skin, strips it of the protective oils, leaving it dry . With handcrafted soap, the glycerin will help moisturize the skin and protect it from drying out.
I use herbs from my garden, teas, and other botanicals to add texture to each bar. Essential oils are added for scenting as well as fragrance oils for those who are looking for a particular scent. I use natural colorants for some bars, others are left natural without added pigment. After the soap has been poured into the molds and have set overnight, they are hand cut at our studio in Sagle Idaho.
Camas Creek handcrafted soaps are long lasting and provide a luscious creamy lather that will leave your skin feeling clean and soft without drying.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my shop. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or special requests. "Like" my Facebook page for soap giveaways and updates on new soaps.

Camas Creek Artisan's Handcrafted Soap is made from scratch in small batches using the traditional cold process method. We use a combination of natural vegetable oils as well as organic herbs from our garden. These specific oils were chosen for their properties which are known to provide a rich lather and be a non drying, mild, cleansing bar . Many of the cleansing bars you buy at the store are not soap at all. They are detergents. In commercial bars of soap the glycerin is extracted and petroleum distillates, synthetic preservatives, irritating surfactants, and dyes are added to their products which creates bars that can be hard and drying to your skin.
Our handcrafted soaps do not have added chemical preservatives. Honey, Vitamin E and some essential oils, such as tea tree, can serve as a natural preservative. For bars that contain colors we use cosmetic-grade pigments, and natural herbs and spices.
All of our soap is free of animal byproducts. Most are completely natural, using essential oils for a light, natural scent. A few contain fragrance oil to achieve different scents. All soap is labeled with the ingredients. My soaps contain no detergents, added lathering agents, or unrecognizable ingredients. So you are getting simply soap !
By using natural ingredients, every cured bar of soap will be unique. Each bar is hand cut and may vary slightly in color, texture and shape from the photo.. I change the look of each batch of soap ... but the ingredients are the same. So no two batches will look completely identical .
A word about Lye...
You can't make soap without lye, or "sodium Hydroxide".
A reaction between oils, water and lye takes place called “Saponification”. After several days the process is complete, and glycerin, a natural byproduct of saponification, remains in the finished soap. Glycerin is a rich emollient that naturally softens the skin and is retained in handcrafted soap. Through the process of saponification and curing, the lye disappears and you’re left with a beautiful bar of soap.

Additional policies and FAQs
Camas Creek Soap Company Disclaimer:
Camas Creek Soap is made with natural and synthetic products (fragrance oils) for the purpose of bathing and washing. It is not made with the intention of treating or curing any medical conditions. Each batch of soap is tested for mildness before it’s made available for purchase. Product claims and descriptions are based off of feedback from current users and personal testing among family and friends.
We are all different, and the use of our soap is not intended to replace the recommendations of your healthcare provider. Always seek advice from your physician for treatment of a medical condition. If you have known allergies, check the ingredients listed on each bar of soap before using. Some individuals may have adverse reactions to plants, herbs, spices, nuts, and other natural products.
If you have sensitive skin, we recommend you patch-test new soaps to check for any adverse reactions. Discontinue use if skin appears irritated, itchy, or red after using. If you are pregnant or nursing, please contact your physician before using any Camas Creek Soap products, especially those made with essential oils.
All Camas Creek products are for external use only. As with any soap product, avoid getting it in the eyes and in your nose. We make soap, not medicine. We do not prescribe our soap for anything other than bathing or washing.
Soap Color – The same recipes are used for each batch but since all of our soap is handcrafted, you may notice a slight difference in color and texture and each bar may differ slightly from the picture. Soaps containing colorants may stain light colored washcloths.
For longer lasting soap bars – Place/store soap in a draining soap dish and do not allow bars of soap to sit in water, or under a dripping shower.
If you have any questions regarding any product, please ask before purchasing. Camas Creek Soap Company is not responsible for any individual reaction to any particular ingredient. Many herbs, essential oils, and other natural ingredients in our handcrafted soaps are believed to have healing properties.
We do not recommend the use of these products as substitute for medical care!
