About Us

Corona Virus Update - November 11, 2020

We're still closed to walk-ins, due to our tight quarters and inability to socially distance in our little shop. We are offering contactless pickup by appointment only, and free shipping over $75.

Pickup orders typically take 1-3 days to process. We are a mother/daughter micro business, and all our products are handmade, hand-cut, and hand-wrapped by just the 2 of us. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Please select a pickup date and time after you process your online payment, or you can coordinate with us by phone or messenger. Please DO NOT come to pickup your order until we've confirmed that your order is ready. On the day of pickup, you can park in the pickup zone on Union next to Patagonia. Please call us at (626)396-9996 once you're parked and we'll leave your order outside our front door for contactless pickup. If you're walking over, please call us when you're 3-5 minutes away. Please try to follow these instructions to keep us all safe and healthy so we can make it through this holiday season.

We greatly appreciate your continued soaport! Much love from this mother/daughter duo.  -Dali & Mom

Our Promise

This mother/daughter team believes that going back to basics is the wave of the future, so for over 16 years, we've been serving up fresh, all natural olive oil soaps, handmade from scratch right here in our kitchen! We've kept our promise to use only the finest essential oils and herbs in our centuries-old soap making process, and we won't stop now. Our clean ingredients make an end product that's gentle and hydrating on the skin, healthy for the body, and never overwhelming to the nose. We're proud to be one of the early adopters of a plastic-free shower, and we're ecstatic about the recent enthusiasm in the zero waste movement! Join us as we continue our quest to cleanse the world naturally, one handmade bar at a time...


But Why Bar Soap?
Aside from the obvious, no more plastic bottles, it takes about 5 times more energy to produce a bottle of liquid soap than a bar of soap. Liquid soaps almost always contain synthetic lathering agents, or sulfates, which can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. And because of their water content, they also often contain harmful preservatives, such as parabens, which are known hormone disruptors and carcinogens. So not only is our soap healthier and gentler on your body, it's better for our planet, too. So move over bottles, the bar is back!
