“I’m never buying your soap again,” she said pretending that she was angry as she walked past my booth at a show. Then with a twinkle in her eye she continued “because now I know how to make my own!”

Hey Allysyn,

I used the Gardeners’ soap today (after gardening) and it worked great! K. used it too and raved about it! “I love it,” he said, “It’s like soap you’d get at a bed and breakfast!”

“You’re not really clean until you’re Artha clean.”
Just finished a shower with Artha soap. Usually I would soap up the bath brush to clean myself; this time I rubbed the grainy soap (Gardener’s Scrub) on my skin which more perfectly exfoliated, stimulated and reinvigorated the skin. It’s the best!
Before there was “Sound if Music” and its list of favorite things (“brown paper packages tied up with string”), there was Rupert Brooke’s list in “The Great Lover”. Artha soap is right in there with the “rough male kiss of blankets”. I’m an Artha convert!

Hello! I purchased one of your smaller Rosemary soap bars from the Treasure Island Flea Market a few weeks ago and I am in love! I would like to buy a half log. 🙂

I have been using Artha Soaps in my medical practice for over five years. I needed a soap that was free of all additives, and made with absolutely pure ingredients. Many of my patients have significant reactions to many chemical products and they love Artha Soaps. I also have a significant number of people who are wrestling with health problems related to toxicity and they needed a soap that was free of foaming agents like sodium lauryl sulfate. Some very fine sopas that advertise themselves as pure still contain this ingredient, but Artha Soaps proved 100% free of it. My research showed that the finest moisturizing soaps in the world were made with hemp oil and now I find that there is a pure and wonderful hemp soap in my neighborhood. Thank you Allysyn!

Hello Allysyn, This is John. I wanted to tell you that I found your soap could be used for shaving, as a deodorant, and shampoo – all sorts of things. I think you have the ideal product for someone who wants to travel light. I just thought I’d let you know. Bye!
