Boulder Creek Soapworks, selling nurturing handmade soaps made with care that make you smile

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my shop! There are so many on Etsy, and you chose to visit me! That means a lot! I take pride in the items I make. I have many people locally that love my soaps and other goodies, and I hope you do too! :)

I came across a pamphlet from the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild called "Why Handcrafted Soap?” After finding out about the wonderful benefits of homemade soap, I was rearing to make my own! I checked out a stack of books from the library, learned all about how to safely handle lye (which combines with oils to make soap!) and made my first batch. I have never gone back to store bought soap since! Once my friends and family tried my soaps, they haven't gone back either. :)

Handmade soap retains all of the glycerin (a humectant that attracts and retains moisture on the skin) that is produced in the soap making process. Glycerin in soap gives you a soap that is mild, pure, and gently cleansing. (Commercial soap manufacturers usually remove this precious glycerin and sell it to other industries, resulting in an inferior bar.)

All of my soaps and bath and body products are vegetarian and cruelty free (They may contain beeswax, honey, or cruelty free Tussah Silk). I use essential oils and fragrance oils to scent my soaps. (Sometimes fragrance oils are preferable to the essential oil because some essential oils come from endangered plants such as Sandalwood, Dragon's Blood, and Rosewood trees. Other essential oils may not be safe or are prohibitively expensive.) I weigh the benefit of each essential oil, and fragrance oil and make a judgement on which is the safest and best for the product. I do a similar assessment when choosing colorants for my products.

I am a one woman show! I am constantly educating myself on business and soap making. I recently attended the 2017 Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild Annual Conference to further my education and meet other soap makers.

When you purchase from me, you are supporting a very small, woman-owned, local business- and you get a safe, wholesome, environmentally conscious, bar of soap- made with love that will make you smile!
