Saltwater Soap Bar- SAIPUA
An essential oil blend creates a scent reminiscent of the ocean. Made with salt and nori. Contrary to popular belief this is not an exfoliating soap; though the salt conditions the water as you shower and creates a creamy and unique lather.
Contains saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor, with shea butter, salt, nori, and essential oils.
6oz. | Handcrafted in N.Y.
Saipua matriarch, Susan Ryhanen began making soap as a hobby in 1999 in her basement using olive oil from the grocery store and a shoebox as a mold. The hobby grew into a small business called Creekside Soaps which sold soap as well as custom engineered soap making supplies, designed by Susan's husband Pentti.
In 2004 Susan’s daughter Sarah and her partner Eric suggested a re-branding of the soap - and SAIPUA (derived from the Finnish word for soap ‘saippua’ and a nod to Pentti’s heritage) was formed. For almost two decades, soap has served as a backbone for the myriad endeavors at SAIPUA and Worlds End Farm.
