About Us


After nearly 20 years in Old Pasadena, our lease has ended and we are now ONLINE ONLY.

We'll still be in Pasadena and offer local deliveries so we can see your beautiful faces, but we won't have a retail location anymore. We plan to hold pop-ups during the holidays and offer more hands-on workshops, so stay tuned!

Please follow us on our socials and/or soapscribe to our newsletter to hear about our ongoing events and specials (links are at the bottom of the page). We hope you'll continue to support our mother/daughter small business as we transition into our next chapter of cleansing the world naturally, one handmade bar at a time...

Orders typically take 2-3 days to process, then ship. 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.

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

Our Story


The Soap Kitchen is a mother/daughter micro business established in Old Pasadena, California in 2003. We believe that going plastic-free and back to basics with bar soaps instead of liquid is the wave of the future. All of our soaps are handmade from scratch, hand-cut, and hand-wrapped by just the two of us. By keeping our promise to use only the finest essential oils and herbs in our centuries-old soap making process, our end product has, and always will be, gentle and hydrating on the skin, healthy for the body, and never overwhelming to the nose. You're truly supporting a handcrafted, Made in the USA business when you purchase from us. We thank you for your amazing soaport! ♥

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!

Attention All Soap Lovers!
