Note from shop owner Due to COVID-19 school closures, I am homeschooling my preschooler, my first grader, my third grader, and my fifth grader. Thus, I've made the decision to close my shop until their school year ends at the end of May 2020.
Thanks for understanding,
Kelly

About theLittleBlueHippo

Merging Chemistry and Art

I love to craft, and I enjoy new challenges in crafting. Some time ago, my sister asked me to create a body butter for her very sensitive skin. In my research and experimentation, I also learned how to make soap. As my knowledge of soap-making grew, so did my desire to develop more advanced techniques.

The Little Blue Hippo, Ltd. was created out of a love of creating, of merging chemistry with art. Each recipe is thoroughly tested (on humans only!), and every ingredient has been carefully selected - from the coconut oil, shea butter, and canola oil to the sea salt, beer, and colors.

Thank you for shopping with me! The Little Blue Hippo, Ltd. was launched after years of researching, testing, and developing soap recipes that wouldn't irritate my sister's very sensitive skin. Since then, I have continued to formulate new products, testing only on humans, and modifying them to perfection before bringing them to you. If I'm not proud enough of them to put my name on it, it doesn't get sold!

Additional policies and FAQs
I do take custom order requests for soap! However, please keep in mind that handmade soap takes 4-6 weeks to cure after it's made. To ensure that your bar of soap is as mild and long-lasting as possible, I require all of my handmade soap to cure for a full 8 weeks prior to shipment.
