           Refreshingly Clean ~ Naturally Good

Located in Western Pennsylvania, Ashgrove Soaps is a home-based family operation. We searched for natural soaps and found that by creating our own we had an excellent combination of oils and scents. Making small batches of soap, we balance seasonal and year round varieties.

We have a variety of soap selections. All of our cold processed soaps begin with imported Italian olive oil. Our traditional Castile Soaps are made with 100% imported olive oil.  Soap ingredients are of premium quality and to assure a skin loving purchase .


Ashgrove Soaps and Sundries is  professionally associated with and is a member of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild. Lori is a HSCG Certified Soapmaking Teacher and Certified Soapmaker. The first HSCG Certified Soapmaking Teacher in PA. In May 2017, she will teach and demonstrate at the international conference of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild in Las Vegas. With a masters degree in education and 30 years of teaching experience, Lori provides a high quality educational experience which students can replicate at home.

We are working hard stirring the soap pot to prepare for our busy Spring and Sumer season.

Cold processed soap requires 4 – 6 weeks of preparation before going to market.

Our soaps fly off the shelves and are sold at an amazing rate.  If you order from the website and  a specific soap is out of stock, we will substitute the bar AND select a free bar of soap for your order.  Perhaps the free bar of soap will become your new favorite.

Check our Yearly Scent Review page. We are always exploring new skin loving scents. Many are on their way to our festival locations. If some are tempting you, send an email. They maybe in season and available.
