All natural artisanal soaps free from synthetic fragrances, colors and preservatives handmade in-house.
Where can you be pampered, nourished, relaxed, soothed and luxuriated? At The Soap Kitchen, of course! The master soap chefs at The Soap Kitchen have been serving up fresh, all-natural olive oil soap, handmade from scratch for over a decade, but who’s counting? Rest assured that only the finest essential oils and herbs are used to mildly scent their soaps, so the end product is hydrating for the skin, healthy for the body, and never overwhelming to the nose. Their olive oil or shea butter soaps come in an exhilarating array of fragrances from the traditional relaxing lavenders and calming calendulas, to more exotic offerings such as the Coffee Bar Scrub, Orange Clove and Cinnamon Spice, and their all new Evergreen! A Soap Kitchen house favorite is the warming and balancing “California’s Gold” Bar, which was highlighted by LA’s favorite son, Huell Howser on his Visiting with Huell Howser. The Soap Kitchen’s products have also been the subject of editorials in the LA Times Magazine and Los Angeles Magazine.
“We believe that going back to basics with handmade bar soaps is the wave of the future. Not only is it healthier and gentler on the skin, but it’s easier on the environment, too. With our minimally packaged soaps, there’s almost zero waste and no bottles to further pollute our landfills and oceans. So move over bottles, the bar is back!” Founded in 2004 in Old Pasadena, what’s most impressive about The Soap Kitchen, besides its heavenly goods and mood-altering smells, is its unwavering allegiance to the integrity of all its pure, additive-free products. Everything is handmade from scratch on-site by The Soap Kitchen’s owner Dali, who generously shares her extensive knowledge about the positive effect and properties of each ingredient. This family-run business is not only a charming part of the neighborhood, but one that continues to raise the bar in more ways than one.
