Sweetgrass Soap Guide

Choosing the Right Soap for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin requires a gentle touch, especially when it comes to choosing the right soap. But how do you find the perfect soap for sensitive skin amidst a myriad of options? At Sweetgrass Soap, our journey began with a personal quest for gentle skincare. Dive into our guide and discover the secrets to soothing and nurturing sensitive skin, inspired by a mother's love and dedication.

A Mother's Journey to Gentle Skincare

The heart of Sweetgrass Soap lies in a mother's determination to find relief for her son. When owner & founder Francesca’s newborn developed eczema, she tried countless skincare brands, only to find his condition worsening. Delving into the world of skincare, she discovered that many commercial soaps contained harsh detergents and sulfates that aggravated sensitive skin. This revelation led her to explore cold process soap making.

The result?

A soap that not only helped reduce her son's eczema flare-ups but also ignited a passion for creating natural skincare products. Sweetgrass Soap was born in the summer of 2021, embodying a commitment to gentle, effective, and natural skincare.
