Ashgrove Soaps

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 soaps begin with at least 40% imported Italian olive oil. Some are traditional Castile Soap with 100% imported olive oil.  All of our ingredients are restaurant grade assuring a premium product.

We believe in supporting the local economy.  Many of our suppliers are from Western Pennsylvanian sources: oils from Restaurant Depot in Pittsburgh, Goat’s milk from farmers in Sarver, PA, and beeswax from the former President of the Central Western PA Bee Association in Wampum, PA.

 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. 

She is the first, and currently the only, HSCG Certified Soapmaking Teacher in PA.
