About Us

Welcome to Posh Soaps,

your source for the highest quality premium handmade soaps to pamper your skin!

 

My soaps are made with the finest, most luxurious tropical fruit and nut oils and butters, pure essential oils, and healing botanicals from around the world.  These ingredients come together to delight your senses as well as your skin, providing moisture, emolliency, softness and healing for rough, dry skin.

 

If you've purchased some of my soaps then you know what a special treat they are. If you are discovering Posh Soaps for the first time, be prepared for your senses to come alive and your skin to feel loved and pampered. Each soap is individually handmade from my specially-written recipes, then hand cut and hand wrapped, making each one a unique and very personal treat. My large soaps range from 4-6 oz. each, depending on the cut and shape, and no two bars are exactly alike. 

Handmade soaps make great gifts: for someone’s special day, or when you just need a small, inexpensive, but unique treat for a co-worker, babysitter, teacher, hostess, or even yourself!  I take great pride in making you something truly special that will pamper your skin and make you feel great!  I hope you enjoy this affordable elegance as much as I do.

Happy Bathing! 

My Name is Marcie and I live in a small town in western Oregon.  I started making handmade soap in 2002 when I received a bar of Lavender handmade soap as a gift from my wonderful husband.  I was so intrigued and enamored by this bar of soap and the way it made my skin feel that I just had to know how it was made and how I could make some for myself.  Well, as many hobbies go, mine became a passion, and now I am on a personal quest to:

  • educate you (and everyone else) about the outstanding advantages of using handmade soap
  • enhance your skin cleansing experience with my premium, nourishing, luxurious soaps
  • continue to create new and exciting skin-loving, moisturizing soaps that delight your senses and make you feel pampered! 

My process is simple; I start by collecting and filtering natural Oregon rainwater (and we have plenty of that!), which is naturally soft and perfect for soapmaking.  I then use all natural, vegetable-based exotic oils like Coconut, Palm, Olive, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel, Castor, Sweet Almond, Sunflower and Avocado, natural tree butters like cocoa, shea, mango and avocado, along with essential oils, fragrance oils and colorants to create beautiful and luscious bars of soap.

You will feel the difference the first time you use a bar of handmade soap.  Commercial soaps are made mostly of petroleum-based (that's right - petroleum!) detergents that strip the skin of it's moisture.  The natural glycerin produced in the soapmaking process is extracted and then sold to make high-end products that moisturize the skin.  So, you now have to buy their lotion to re-hydrate your skin after using their detergent!  Handmade soap retains all the natural glycerin to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.  Handmade soaps are also creamier and longer lasting than commercial soaps.  See for yourself!
