Your Dog Said What??!

Okay, maybe my dog didn't actually tell me to start making vegan soaps, but I know that he and our other pets are grateful for the effort made to keep animal products out of our line of handcrafted soaps.

Born in early August, on a sultry day that had my mother up to her elbows in cooking for a threshing crew (Google it) at our farm, I've lived in the rolling hills of Wisconsin all my life - with a brief hiatus that involved Bolivia and then Arizona.

My grandma, a woman who always brought us bananas and home-sewn doll clothes, also used to make soaps at home, but things have come a long way in the decades since. I think she made soap bars for laundry use exclusively. They were simply utilitarian in a time when things were pretty tough financially. I wanted to make soaps too, but ones that smell wonderful and make our skin feel soft and silky, rather than dry and irritated.

Our family has allergies, all the way from food allergies to environmental allergies. I'm accustomed to looking at the ingredient list when I purchase anything. I wanted the soaps I made to have as few ingredients as possible and still provide the customer with a luxurious, natural bar of soap they'll love.

One day a friend held a soapmaking class for five of us. That was all it took. I was totally hooked. I've been trying and adjusting and creating recipes ever since, and love sharing the best final product with you.

    Who knew that dissatisfaction with chemical-laden soaps and a desire to try my hand at making something better could lead to this. From raising botanicals in our garden to learning about natural oils and colorants, I love every part of the process.

    I personally do all of the photography, the design, the layout, etc. The production partner's only role is to print it. Then I also assemble, package, brand, etc. the set of greeting cards.

OUR SOAPS: Thank you for shopping at HomemadeSoapNSuch. We want you to experience the beauty, purity, simplicity, and luxury of natural homemade vegan soaps. Enjoy a lovely scented (or unscented) soap that is free of harsh chemicals that can dry and irritate the skin. Instead, you will find that HomemadeSoapNSuch soaps have a nice, gentle lather that will moisturize your skin and leave it feeling soft and silky. Plus, a light and lovely fragrance. Just what you wanted!

Our soaps are vegan - no animal products are used in our soaps, ever! And all of our colorants are natural.

All of our soaps are homemade, in small batches, made from the finest quality oils and botanicals, natural colorants, essential oils, and quality fragrances. Each listing will state specific ingredients.

Because our homemade soaps are made in small batches and also handcut, there may be some variation in appearance, i.e. slight difference in color, size, or texture. Machines make identical batches and perfect cuts. (How boring is that!) Humans, although striving for uniformity, do not - although we do try. Most of all, we strive to make a beautiful, luxury bar of soap that you will enjoy each time you use it. We want you to experience happy skin, skin that has been treated to the gentle cleansing and moisturizing that comes from quality oils - and no harsh chemicals.

BEST DEAL: Buy Five or More, Get One FREE. See Shop Announcements, under banner, for instructions on how to get your FREE bar of vegan soap.

OUR PHOTO GREETING CARDS: Thank you for shopping at HomemadeSoapnSuch. All of my greeting card images were photographed by me, Judy, and are copyrighted. I hope you will enjoy the several sets of photo greeting cards we have available

Please read all Shop Policies.

We hope you'll visit often.
