Abbey Brown Herbal Soaps is a family business that hand-makes natural skin care products. Their products are aromatherapy-quality, using only plant-based essential oils, never synthetic ingredients that have been linked to allergies and can irritate sensitive skin types.

Deborah Kraemer, the owner of Abbey Brown Herbal Soaps, along with her family and two wonderful master soap makers, produce 20 varieties of soap, including vegan, organic, and herbal-infused olive oil soap. Over half of the herbs and botanicals used in the soaps are grown by the family. High-quality ingredients mean high-quality products. It costs a little extra money to secure the very best elements available, but the result is superior creations of the utmost quality. Deborah supports organic and pesticide-free farming and chooses local farmers and suppliers. Abbey Brown Herbal Soaps is currently in the process of obtaining organic certification.

Why have you chosen to produce organic?>
We at Abbey Brown are committed to making only the purest of products to nourish the skin. Our wondrous skin is the largest organ of our body. It breathes and absorbs into the bloodstream. That is why we use pure and organic ingredients. Unlike commercial manufacturers that pass off petroleum-based detergents as soap, our gentle and soothing products are made with ingredients anyone can recognize and pronounce. Integrity is our guiding principle and towers above all other considerations. Your delight in our health-giving products becomes our delight in a job well done for those who are committed to natural skin care.

What makes your products special?>
Our products are made with the nourishing benefits of cold-pressed Olive Oil further enhanced by infusing our organically grown herbs and botanicals. This practice is difficult, taking months to infuse properly. We are notably unique in that there are few soap companies nationwide committed to these procedures. Abbey Brown Herbal Soaps are vegan-friendly and never animal-based.
