Soap Artisan: Lippincott Soap Company

It's Sunday!  I hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Today we are going to feature another handmade soap artisan:  Angela from Lippincott Soap Company.

The Lippincott Soap Company is a family owned business from Pennsylvania who makes old-fashioned, cold process soap.  Their soaps have a wonderful, yet not overpowering fragrance, and lots of lather and bubbles!  They have some pretty decadent sounding (and smelling!) soaps.  I can sometimes be sensitive to fragrance which is what turned me off of "fancy" scented soaps and handmade soaps for years. Since Brian and I are starting to look towards more natural and organic products and processes for our life, I started looking at handmade soaps again that were made out of the basic ingredients of oil and lye.  We've been using handmade cold process soap since the beginning of the year, and have had a great time discovering new varieties and artisans.  We think that Lippincott Soap Co. fits right in with our plan, and we couldn't resist their decadent offerings like the fruity Bottle of Wine, or the fresh, crisp Fresh Bamboo.  The colors of their soaps are very vibrant as well.  As with the other handmade soaps that we are offering, I love that I can pronounce the ingredients on the label, and my skin loves that there are no harsh chemicals.  The fragrance used by Lippincott Soap Co. won't overwhelm you, but it will leave you with a light fresh scent to start (or end) your day.

Tayberry & Teak, Bottle of Wine, Honey Love, Harvest Moon, Fresh Bamboo

We are currently featuring these five fabulous soaps:  Tayberry & Teak, Bottle of Wine, Honey Love, Harvest Moon, and Fresh Bamboo.

Tayberry & Teak:  This soap has a unique blend of berries, teakwood, and red clover.  It smells lovely and the color is great! 
Although yours will probably be the brown color of our alpaca fiber!

Bottle of Wine:  This soap has the wonderful light scent of White Zinfandel.

Honey Love:  This unique soap smells like a blend of honey and chocolate.  Yum!

Harvest Moon:  I think that this soap has a bit more of a "manly" scent with its notes of fruit, pine, and musk.

Fresh Bamboo:  This is one of my favorites!  I love the fresh crisp scent of the bamboo, the color is great, and there is ground up loofa in it as well!

We have many favorites, and hope to offer more scents later this year including Lime Margarita which is Brian's favorite!  We think you'll enjoy the current scents that are offered, and we hope that they will keep you coming back for more!

100% alpaca felted soap

The soap from Lippincott Soap Co. will be hand felted by Jen & Ole's from fiber from our own alpaca herd.  The color of the fiber is all natural undyed 100% alpaca fiber.  The felted soap is very easy to use in the shower or bath, and adds an added bit of luxury to the bath time experience. 

100% alpaca felted soap from Lippincott Soap Company will be available starting this weekend in both our Etsy and Artfire shops.
