the shady dog tale

Shady Dog Soap logo showing our beloved dog Lucie under her shady tree

It all started with a desire to create something. Something that could be useful. A creative outlet to get lost in.


A cross between chemistry and art, cold process soap is the chemical reaction between the fats found in oils combined with lye. Add some color and the design possibilities are endless. This process creates a gentle

soap that is cured for 4-6 weeks producing a preservative free

long-lasting bar.


We did the research. Meticulously formulated each recipe, choosing

skin loving vegetable based oils for our canvas along with cosmetic

grade colorants and clays as our paints.

Each small batch of handcrafted soap is generously hand cut. Each soap bar is creative and unique. Being naturally sensitive to scents, our soaps are gently scented with essential oils or phthalate-free fragrances. Our products are tested on humans, not animals. Just ask Lucie!

Lucie, our Border Collie/Great Pyrenees mix is our inspiration. Our heart dog. Our Shady Dog.
