Stocking up on perfumes for holiday orders already! Apricot Yuzu is one of my favorites for summer. It's bright, fresh and clean smelling. I have to admit I even use it as a deodorant sometimes! Lol! For reals!
We've been making lots of body creams and these cute little baby creams this week! All orders of $25 or more get a free sample!

A Little About Us!

My name is Erin Pikor and I specialize in high quality cold process soaps in a variety of beautiful designs and fragrances! I first started making soap in 2006 since gentle products for my sensitive skin were hard to find or ridiculously expensive. I was quickly hooked on soap making and began devouring any book on the subject that I could find. I soon had too much soap to handle, so in November of that year I started selling my soapy creations as a little side job to my career in advertising. After I was laid off from my job in 2007, with the support of my family and amazing husband I took the business full time and haven’t looked back!

We now make Glycerin soap, Cold Process soap, Sugar Scrubs, Lip Balms and Liquid Soap, all made with the same small batch, high quality standards that I cherish!

Even as the business grows I am dedicated to small batch, handmade, quality products. I am not looking to be a soap factory. Part of the reason why I took this full time is that I love the intimacy of making a batch of soap, whipping up a pot of sugar scrubs or meticulously hand pouring lip balms into their cute little containers. I know exactly what goes into my products, I use my products every day, and am proud and honored to have a loyal customer base that loves the products as much as I do!

So what is a “naiad”? In Greek mythology a Naiad is a nymph who lived in and presided over brooks, springs, and fountains. It can be pronounced with a long “a” sound or long “i” sound which is how I pronounce it. I thought it was fitting! The “Soap” part is obvious and the “Arts” comes from my desire to make everything pretty! And so we have Naiad Soap Arts!
