How Susan’s Soaps & More Began . . .

Susan in the soap shop.

Susan’s Soaps came about as a result of eczema I began experiencing on my hands and legs after the birth of my son, over 28 years ago. I had been to dermatologists, but nothing was helping a large patch of eczema on my leg. One day I went into a natural skincare store and was sold a bottle of cream rinse which the salesperson mentioned that I could also use as a shaving cream. Several months later I realized that the patch of eczema was gone. It hit me how important it is what you put on your skin.

Earlier I had ordered a book on how to make soap, mainly because the pictures looked so yummy! I decided to give it a try. First for myself, then for gifts and finally for sale (at the urging of my local health food store owner.) I eventually added additional products and Susan’s Soaps & More was born.

I have become a firm believer in the value of all-natural skincare & bath products as well as the value of essential oils used in these products. I use my own products on my skin and hair and have now since the inception of my business 20 years ago. My products have helped me as well as many friends and customers have better looking and feeling skin. I sincerely believe that they can help you too. I look forward to serving you as a customer.

. . . to Where Susan’s Soaps & More is today.

    I bought your frankincense and myrrh body oil and I love it. Would like to buy more but can’t find on your web site. Hope you haven’t discontinued it.

      Hi Cynthia,

      I am sorry you are having trouble finding the Body Oil but so glad you have been enjoying it. We do still make the Frankincense & Myrrh and it is listed along with the other Body Oil Scents. Here is the direct link: https://www.susansoaps.com/shop/natural-body-oil/
      For future reference you can find it under Body & Face > Natural Skin Care > Natural Body Oil.
      Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Best, Susan

  3. Can you ship to Canada Susan?

    Saw you in our SEN Mastermind this morning – I would love to order from you!

      Hi Donna,

      Thanks for your interest and for reaching out. I used to ship internationally and then last year changed platforms and had not yet set it up. Give me a couple of days to sort out pricing and options and I will get back with you.

      Hi Donna,

      I have enabled shipping to Canada so it is possible now, but we only ship there via USPS Priority Mail.
