About Us...

Elk River Soap Company is a family owned and operated company. We are located in south west Missouri, in the beautiful Ozark Mountains.
We strive to bring our customers products are free from parabens, petroleum, Sodium Lauryl & Laureth Sulfates, carcinogens, and other toxic chemicals that are widely used in commercial body care products. Our goal is to create high quality handmade soaps and bath products using only vegetable and nut oils and butters, essential oils, high quality scents, and botanicals.
We take pride in having established a line of products and scents that you will love. Tested on friends and family, never on animals, our products are handcrafted in small batches with skin loving oils and butters. They are all vegan-friendly and biodegradable.
At Elk River Soap Company we handcraft our soap using the old fashioned cold process method. This means that we do not cook the soap to ensure the natural ingredients maintain their beneficial qualities as much as possible. We are not a large manufacturer. All of our home made soap andbath products are hand crafted in small batches to ensure you are receiving a high quality product.
We select premium, skin loving organic oils for our products. We strive to use all organic materials. We use 100% vegetable and nut oils in all of our recipes and enrich our soaps with luxurious shea and cocoa butters. For our luxurious line of pure soaps we use coconut oil, castor oil, palm oil, soybean oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter.  The perfect blend of these specific oils results in an amazingly moisturizing bar of soap that has a fluffy, luxurious lather. Of course it also has wonderful cleaning properties, too.
Our soaps retain the natural glycerin that is produced during the curing process making them much more moisturizing than commercial soaps. Commercial soap companies remove the natural glycerin to be resold.  Unlike some commercial products, our soaps contain NO DETERGENTS, NO CHEMICALS, AND NO PETROLEUM products. Also, we NEVER test our products on animals. Once you use our handmade soap your skin will never want you to use a commercial bar of soap again!
We do offer a wide variety of unique handcrafted soaps. Unlike other expensive designer soaps, our soaps do not contain harsh chemicals. Our specialty is providing you with an all natural soap or 97% natural soap or bath product.
Our luxury line of homemade soaps is safe to use on your face, hands, and body. Whether you take a quick shower or a long relaxing bath, using handmade natural soap will enhance your bathing experience. Your skin will be very clean, yet still soft and silky!
Our lush, hand-crafted soaps will make fine gifts for those “hard to buy for” people in your life.  Bar soap is a gift that everyone uses. The added bonus is that it is a natural product that will in no way harm your loved ones!
Your soap bar will require a small amount of attention from you in order to lengthen its life span. Using a soap dish that drains will keep your soap dry and stop it from melting away. Store your bar of soap in a dry location when in not in use.
