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 40% imported Italian olive oil. Our traditional Castile Soaps are made with 100% imported olive oil.  All of our ingredients are of premium quality and 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. 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.
