Mission Statement

The mission of the Natural Soap Directory™ is to encourage the production of handmade soap and to promote handmade soap to the general public by creating a hub for soapmakers, by listing detailed information and photos from each soapmaker, and by educating the public about the soapmaking craft through online advertisements, postcard mailings, and promotional stickers. The Natural Soap Directory™ further promotes soapmaking education by encouraging participation in National Soapmaking Day on the last Sunday in September. It is our overall mission to assist soapmakers to be successful in business.

Looking for the Perfect Gift? Everyone Uses Soap! …Don't You?
The soapmakers listed with the Natural Soap Directory each create a special soap by hand.  Their handmade soaps reflect their ingenuity and their love of the soapmaking craft.

Our "Cold Process" and "Hot Process" soapmakers prepare real soap from scratch by carefully selecting wholesome base oils and magically saponify them into genuine soap.  These exuberant soaps retain all the natural glycerin from the base oils. Bathing with real soap is a luxurious experience that is unsurpassed.  Treat your self—or a friend—to a bar of real cold or hot process handmade soap!

Our "Melt and Pour" soapmakers meticulously design miniature works of art fashioned from soap. They proudly present their soaps as an abundant assortment of colors, scents, textures, and designs from many different detailed molds. Enjoy giving a beautiful bar of melt and pour soap to a friend or treasure it for yourself!

Assisting Soapmakers

We assist our soapmaker subscribers by promoting the sale of their products and informing our soapmakers of vital changes to laws that affect their businesses. Although we no longer publish the hardcopy version of the Natural Soap News™, whenever changes in legislation affect soap labeling laws, Internet sales laws, interstate sales tax laws, essential oil carcinogenicity warning laws, or anything else that may directly affect a soap business, we email our soapmaker subscribers to keep them updated and informed.
