I LOVE to convert commercial soap buyers to handmade soap addicts!

My name is Melissa and I am the founder and owner of The Concord Soap Company. My husband and I became interested in living as environmentally friendly as we could once we started our family. We are avid recyclers and are always trying to lessen our impact on the environment in as many ways as possible. We used cloth diapers on our daughter, carry our cloth bags when shopping, drive a hybrid car and built an eco-friendly house! I have always been immersed in many different crafts. (usually all at once!) The blending of our natural living and my passion for crafts resulted in my interest in making handmade, natural soap for my new family. I began by making cold-process soap and then other bath and body items to give out as holiday gifts. As you can guess, it snowballed from there! After many experiments and trials, I selected my favorite recipes and began my business adventure!

The Concord Soap Company's soap are vegetarian or vegan friendly! We do not use animal fats (tallow, for example) in any of our soap. Some of our soap are completely natural - they include essential oils as the fragrance. The remainder of our soap contains fragrance oils for scent. Essential oils are derived completely from plants, seeds, etc. Fragrance oils are man-made and may even include some natural oils, to create a specific fragrance. All of the fragrance oils used by the Concord Soap Company are VERY high quality. We realize that some people are highly sensitive to fragrances, so we also offer fragrance-free products. Our products are made in small batches to allow quality to be the number one issue. We take great care to ensure you will receive a high quality product!

We choose to NOT include artificial colorants in our soap and body products. Although they look pretty, we feel that there is no room for artificial ingredients in our natural products. We do experiment with natural colorants from time to time. The natural colorants that we use occasionally are simply spices, herbs, etc. The essential oils or fragrance oils used will sometimes add a tint to our products as well.

Although we strive to have as natural & preservative-free product as we can, we do occasionally need to add a preservative to our products for safety purposes. Our Body Butter, for example, contains a preservative because it is the type of product that the owner could potentially be dipping fingers in to scoop out product. Since we cannot mandate that everyone that uses our body butter scoops it out with a spoon/spatula, we MUST add a preservative to make sure the product is safe. We researched many preservatives & picked one that is both formaldehyde-free and paraben-free.

We choose to use glass bottles and jars where we can to lessen our use of plastic. When we do use plastic, we search out packaging with a high recycled content.

We have been making soap since 2000, over ten years! The Concord Soap Company was established in 2002 in Concord, Ohio. As with most crafters, we began by making items as gifts for family & friends. We formed our company & began selling by word-of-mouth, at craft shows and on our website. We opened an Etsy account in Jan 2008, but didn't start selling here until mid Sept 2008.

Our soap is made by "cold process" in small batches to assure high quality. MOST of our products are safe for vegans! We do NOT use any colorants other than spices & herbs! Preservatives (paraben & formaldehyde free) are only used in a few of our products as necessary for your safety! We are working with our suppliers to get all of our ingredients paraben free! When possible we use glass containers instead of plastic, as well as recycled shipping materials. And, no animal testing...unless husbands count!

We are a proud member of The Handcrafted Soap Makers Guild. Our company is fully insured for your protection, as well as our own!
