Moon Soaps | Artisan Spotlight
MEET MOON SOAPS
Moon was created out of a life-long love of bath and body products. I wanted to explore the possibilities of creating a line that embodies all the things I love in a product. I want my creations to be nurturing, luxurious, and to smell divine. So with a little experimentation and a lot of hard work, Moon was born. Moon products are handmade from scratch using exotic butters, premium fragrance and essential oils, and the finest botanicals. We never use parabens or phthalates. Whenever possible we source local, sustainable, and organic ingredients.
What was once a one woman soap business has become a wife and husband partnership. After over ten years making cold process soap and body products alone, Zachary decided to join me and try making a shave soap. He had recently gotten into wet shaving and felt that adding a tallow based shave soap to the product catalogue would expand our audience greatly. With an incredible amount of research and some guidance from me, Zachary perfected Old School, our first shave soap.
From creating and formulating the products, to designing the labels and packaging, keeping every aspect of the business “in house” has always been my goal. We even go so far as to render our own beef tallow from Zachary’s trimmings at work, making our shaving soaps and creams truly one of a kind. (“From the Butcher to the Barber” couldn’t be more true!) All Moon products are made from scratch in our home based apothecary studio located in beautiful Corralitos, California. We draw our inspiration from living on the coast of California, surrounded by the beautiful Monterey Bay beaches and the majestic giant redwoods. With our two young children as little helpers and our wild Jack Russell, our lives are always busy...
Every order is carefully packaged with the utmost care and attention to detail. I hand wrap all items in tissue and you will usually find a personal note and always a sample of one of our products. I always want my customers to be very pleased with their order and to know that I care about the entire process- from the creation of their soap all the way through shipping.
