About Us

John and Lindsay - The Southern Soap CompanyThe Southern Soap Company was born out of a desire to reduce our own exposure to harmful chemicals found in everyday products, like soap and other personal care products. We began experimenting in the kitchen and before long, a unique line of natural soaps, scrubs, lotions and laundry detergents emerged. We’ve coupled pure ingredients with age-old generation knowledge to bring you the purest products possible. The Southern Soap Company is a return to tradition!

We proudly make our products in the Lake Norman Area of NC with our twin poodles, Cooper & Cali. We do not test our products on poodles or other animals; we test our products on people!

The Southern Soap Company aims to provide you and your family with soaps, lotion and other household products with fragrancing options that are safer than the big commercial industry. From natural soaps and lotions to body powders and bath soaks, you will find the most natural ingredients possible with little to no preservatives. Even our candles are made from soy wax which emits far less soot than paraffin wax which is petroleum based. The soap industry is not regulated while the cosmetic industry is only lightly regulated in the United States. As a result only a dozen or so chemicals have been banned from use here whereas over 1300 have been banned in the EU. Therefore, we follow the most stringent guidelines available. The things that you put on your skin like soaps, lotions and cosmetics are just as easily absorbed into your body as the foods that you eat. Therefore it is critical to be aware of what you are applying to your skin. However you can relax and indulge yourself in our natural products because we have done the research for you.
