When you first walk- into sammysoap there is no doubt that you have walked into a soap store with clean natural smells filling the room. Nestled in a line of stores in downtown Kirkwood, MO, sammysoap revitalized the once old firehouse into a workable space while keeping the historic features intact, just one of many ways it helps the community where it is stationed.

So Do They Just Sell Soaps?

For those who love organic products, sammysoap sells more than just body wash. From shaving soap to dog wash, sammysoap provides many organic items that add to its appeal. Recently voted Best Gift Shop by Saint Louis Magazine for 2016, sammysoap also provides local crafts from artisans from jewelry to home decor.

How Do I Know These Soaps Are Organic?

Well, take a tour! Sammysoap’s in-house small batch factory is open to the public and gives you an inside look at what goes into soap making. From stirring the organic vegetable oils to cutting a large block of soap, sammysoap provides you with an in-depth look at their process.

How Interesting Can A Tour About Soap Be?

Trust me–I was thinking the same thing. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The tour, headed by master soapmaker Chris Moritz, is not only about soapmaking, but about how what you think of as soap, really isn’t soap. Chris begins to really shine when it comes to kids (don’t worry, adults can cut the soap too!). Through an interactive children’s area to Chris’s witty banter, children are able to laugh, smile, and cut soap all while having an education about organic ingredients.

I Am Very Particular About What I Smell Like. Do They Have Options?

With over 90+ soaps, there is a fragrance for everyone. Sammysoap is knowledgeable in
skin conditions such as acne and eczema and can recommend a soap based on your personal needs. While I have eczema and often have to choose fragrance-free products, I was able to enjoy  the organic fragrances in sammysoap without any irritation. From their Unscented Bar to their Chocolate Bar, you will smell delicious no matter your preference.

But Aren’t Bar Soaps Messy and Awkward?

Short answer-Not these soaps. One bar will last you about 35 washes and maintain a firm shape that is still able to lather until your last wash.

Sammysoap not only provides fragrant organic soaps but an amazing atmosphere for those with intellectual disabilities and the community as well. It is rare that you find a business that not only helps a small community but actively promotes, participates, and strives to spread their message, whether through their products or their everyday lives. Thankfully you can buy sammysoap online through their website. But, if you are in the Saint Louis area, I encourage you to come and stop by sammysoap, where with every bar there is a heart-filled mission attached.
