Nature-Inspired Artisan Soaps

Every day we are exposed to an array of harmful chemicals and hidden additives in the foods that we eat, the products that we use to clean our homes, and in our skincare routine. Emily’s Handmade Soaps creates nature-inspired soaps using sustainable, cruelty-free ingredients to responsibly enhance your daily bathing ritual. We use oils, butters, earth clays, and other botanical ingredients to create nurturing skin care that you can feel good about bringing into your home.

Each of Emily’s Handmade Soaps products are vegan-focused and artfully handcrafted with pronounceable ingredients that are intentionally formulated to bring you the very best that nature has to offer. Here are what some of our customers have to say:

“Opening the box was a sensory explosion, in the best kind of way! Each soap has it's own delightfully distinct aroma, but the smorgasbord of them combined is an experience in itself! The bars themselves look amazing and I wouldn't be surprised if more than a few people use them solely as decorative pieces (which smell really good!). Great job, Emily!” – Mark D., Toledo, OR

“I ordered 12 bars and they smell great. I ordered samples awhile back and they lather great. I only use handmade soap and I'm very picky, but hers have been wonderful so far.” – Tiffany P., Strongsville, OH

I’m Emily, owner and soap maker at Emily’s Handmade Soaps, located in the coastal gem of Des Moines, Washington. The inspiration to turn my hobby into a business started while I was enjoying my time as a stay at home mom to the two most amazing kids in the world (alright, I may be a little bit biased!). My son has always had sensitive skin, so searching for a product that would ease some of his discomfort became quite a task. When I took up soap making I was relieved and pleased that I could create soaps that were free of detergents and needless chemicals that could benefit those that I love the most.

With hundreds of batches of soap under my belt, I have found so many ways to add artistic touches and natural elements to my soaps, like:

• Natural colorants (i.e. indigo, cocoa powder, and clays)
• Essential oils and high-quality, phthalate-free fragrances
• Alternative liquids (i.e. aloe juice, coconut milk, & almond milk)
• Botanical additives (i.e. oatmeal, raspberry seeds & coffee grounds)

While the purpose of soap is to clean you, I make soaps inspired by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest that are lovely to look at, sensational to smell, and luxurious to use. Experience some of nature’s splendor through my line of Essential Oil Soaps and complement your bathing experience with my Hand & Body Lotion.
