Why do you use the ingredients you do?

  • Coconut Oil:  Coconut oil is naturally antimicrobial and antifungal, and aides in the healing of wounds, cuts, hot spots, and skin irritations.  It is full of antioxidants and is an excellent moisturizer.
  • Shea Butter:  Shea butter is well known for its benefits to the skin.  Rich in fatty acids, it hydrates, softens, and protects skin from the harsh environment.   It is even edible.  (Some countries use it for cooking.)
  • Sweet Almond Oil:  Sweet almond oil is packed with vitamins and nutrients and protects skin from UV rays.  It is readily absorbed, penetrating deep in the skin, and is a wonderful moisturizer.  
  • Beeswax:  Beeswax is a natural humectant and creates a protective barrier on the skin.  It is a great emollient for dry skin.
  • Vitamin E:  Vitamin E has many of the same properties as the other ingredients above, plus strengthens the skin.

About Hickory Ridge's Handmade Soaps

Welcome to a new way to love your body, or should we say old way?  We make soap entirely by hand just like our grandmothers used to make.  (Okay, maybe not just like grandma who only needed basic soap for washing, the method is the same but we add various skin loving oils, butters, herbs, and premium fragrance oils for a special treat.  Who doesn't like to be pampered?)   All of our soap is made in small batches with only the purest and highest quality of ingredients, they do not contain any preservatives, detergents, or fillers. All of the natural glycerin is retained during the soap making process so our soap cleans without stripping away natural oils. 


We specialize in making handmade soaps with milk.  Milk soaps are extra creamy, and provide wonderful lather while hydrating your skin.  (Cleopatra was well known for her milk baths for it's benefits).  We use Coconut Milk, Goat Milk, and Buttermilk for our soaps, and our formula is also enriched with natural shea butter and high quality oils such as coconut, palm and castor for a gentle, luxurious soap with a creamy lather.  Here at Hickory Ridge Soap Co., we believe you should treat yourself to the best.   The various herbs and ingredients we add to our products are all beneficial to your skin and well being, and not only are our products better for your skin, they are better for the planet.  The benefits of all natural, handmade beauty products is endless.
