I’m SO happy and excited to announce the official launch of Schoon Soap! For the past few months, I’ve been working on designing the branding and packaging for an amazing new line of vegan soaps. (It’s been hard to keep my mouth shut about this project, believe me!)
Stephanie Klose has been making soap since 2005, but it wasn’t until this year that she decided to fully immerse herself (literally and figuratively) in the business of creating the perfect lather. After a lot of experimentation, she’s come up with a initial line of 12 varieties of soaps, including fragrance-free and fragrance-ful options. Schoon means “clean” in Dutch, and the name pays homage to the Dutch heritage of the New York regions both Stephanie and I have called home: Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley, the latter of which was also my inspiration for the mountain-y logo.
One of the best things about working on the packaging for these soaps is that in order to fully appreciate their characteristics, I (naturally) had to use them. I’m usually a no-frills, unscented, liquid castile soap kind of gal when it comes to shower time, so making the switch to these truly luxurious bars was a pretty big upgrade for me. The first soap I tried was Bay Rum & Vetiver, which passed my smell test immediately: warm, earthy, spicy. The coconut oil and shea butter base felt so great on my usually dry skin, and I had no irritation at all from the essential oils used to give it its wonderful fragrance.
Most recently, I’ve been using the Pure/Unscented bar, which still feels fancy and luxurious even though it’s fragrance-free! Great news for anyone who can’t tolerate any kind of perfume. ALL of the varieties are free from any synthetic fragrances, parabens, or preservatives, and the entire line is totally vegan. (And they’re all made by hand right here in Brooklyn!)
I realize I’m totally biased in saying this, but they also look great in my bathroom—wrapped and unwrapped. Each soap wrapper has its own unique pattern and color, so they feel really special and personal. That was the most important thing to me in designing the packaging—I didn’t want the individual varieties to blend into one another visually (though they do also look nice together in a group!). The coolest part of the project? Seeing the logo I designed for Stephanie embossed into a finished bar. So satisfying.
To celebrate the launch of Schoon Soap, Stephanie and her husband, Rob (who handles the customer service side of things), are offering a 20% discount on all of their soaps until October 6th! Just use the code SCHOONTIME during checkout at Etsy.
And just for extra fun, let’s do a Schoon Soap giveaway! There will be THREE winners drawn at random, and each winner will receive any three bars of their choosing from Schoon Soap. Yay! International entries are welcome. Deadline for entries is 11PM EST on October 12th.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. I’ll announce the winners here and on Twitter tomorrow. The winners will also be notified by email. Thanks to everyone who entered!
Here’s how to enter:

✚ Leave a comment below letting us know which three varieties sound the most wonderful to you.
✚ That’s it! Thanks for entering. ♥
Congratulations on the launch of Schoon Soap, Stephanie and Rob! It was an honor to work with you.
The grapefruit bergamot, lemon lavender (one of my very favorite scent combos!), and the Tioga, for when my boyfriend visits. And those just the first three I want to try!
Swoon! That packaging is perfection–nicely done! And what a fun project too!
I will certainly be ordering, but winning would be lovely too. My top three are: Lavender Eucalyptus, Grapefruit & Bergamot, and Bay Rum & Vetiver.
lavender eucalyptus, pure/unscented, and lemongrass basil!
These soaps sound amazing! And look fantastic, to boot!
The most wonderful three varieties, to me, would be:
Lavender Eucalyptus (of course!)
Tioga (citrusy AND woodsy, oh my!)
Herkimer (basically the Thieves Essential Oil – as a soap – awesome)
Tioga, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter & Grapefruit & Bergamot for the win! I love my castille soap but these sound like the right kind of indulgent.
GRAPEFRUIT & BERGAMOT, LAVENDER LEMON and the LAVENDER EUCALYPTUS
I’d love to try the lavender lemon, lemongrass basil, and the rensselaer.
Rensselaer, Lemongrass Basil, and Grapefruit & Bergamot sound divine! Thank you for this giveaway. Wonderful job on the branding + packaging
Almond milk&otmeal, lavender eucalyptus and olive oil and cocoa butter are my favourite! ♥ I’d like to try them!
A scent-free soap is a wonderful idea, I wish more fancy-soap makers had a scentless variety! I tend to use scent-free day to day (in general, I get bugged by overwhelming smells), but a scented soap is a nice treat every once in awhile. I’d want the woodsy ones (Rensselae and Tioga) and you sold me on the Bay Rum and Vetiver as well!
Laura, I didn’t mention this in the post, but they actually have THREE unscented varieties! I haven’t tried them all yet, but I love that there’s been a consideration to make those soaps special in ways that don’t involve fragrance.
Wow, that IS nice! People sensitive to perfume never get more than 1 option! Or beautiful packaging!!
Grapefruit & Bergamot, Lemongrass Basil, and the Herkimer scents sound wonderful!
Almon milk & Oatmeal, Bay rum & Vetiver, and Tioga are my favorites. (Really like the packaging!)
Lavender Eucalyptus, Rensselaer, and Ulster sound absolutely scrumptious!
I’m not big on the scents either so I’d go for the pure, olive oil & cocoa butter, and almond milk & oatmeal. Love the logo on the bar. That’s killer.
Love the logo embossed in the soap. Such a nice detail!
They all sound amazing, but my top three would be: Grapefruit & Bergamot, Lemongrass & Basil, Almond Milk & Oatmeal
Tioga! Herkimer! Bay Rum&Vetiver!
Herkimer, Grapefruit & Bergamot, and Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter sound perfect! And well done on the packaging and branding!
Tough choice, but I think the Rensselaer, Tioga and Olive Oil/Cocoa Butter sound delicious! Great job on the branding Anna!
The designs are amazing! Well done, Anna!
I’m most piqued by the Bay Rum & Vetiver, the Grapefruit & Bergamot, and the Rensselaer.
soaps looks terrific ! Now I wouldn’t mind smelling them 😉 here are my favorites…
Grapefruit and bergamot
i want to try them all! First I would try Bay Rum & Vetiver since I love the scent of vetiver, and then I’d also get Tioga and Ulster. I really like that the collection includes a lot of woodsy/spicy scents since they are more unisex.
I would want to try Grapefruit & bergamot, Ulster and Tioga.
Love the packaging!
Rensselaer, Tioga, Ulster–that’s a hard choice when faced with the others, but these seem like the true proprietary blends. I’m excited to try these!
Lavender Eucalyptus, Ulster and Rennselaer. All the soaps sound awesome!
GRAPEFRUIT & BERGAMOT, LAVENDER EUCALYPTUS, and LEMONGRASS BASIL all sound heavenly!
Goodness, how nice the soaps sound and look. I’d love to try almond milk & oatmeal, rensselaer, and olive oil & cocoa butter.
I love the grapefruit bergamot and lemon lavender!
But I want to try them all!
Grapefruit/Bergamot to start (then I’ll go have a piece of toast with my lemon/bergamot marmalade)
and then Herkimer so as to avoid the plagues circulating at work (small children and their parents, carriers of disease 🙂 )
Beautiful packaging to go with soap that seems to be good for those of us with sensitivities. I’d love to try the following:
Herkimer, Bay Rum & Vetiver, and Almond Milk & Oatmeal
Wow, these soaps look amazing! I am a sucker for all things bath related (soap, salts, scrubs, masks) and will have to give these a try. Lavender Eucalyptus, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter and Rensselaer are topping my list!
Wow these are great! I’s love to try the Lavender Lemon, Lavender Eucalyptus and the Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter and all the unscented ones!!
Ooh. These sound amazing: grapefruit and bergamot, rensselaer, and almond milk + oatmeal.
And then you know the lemongrass basil one… and herkimer…
I’ve already ‘favorited’ the Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, plus the Almond Milk & Oatmeal. Both sound wonderful for my dry and sensitive skin. But I’m really intrigued by the Herkimer and Grapefruit/Bergamot scents too; even the Lemongrass Basil sounds wonderful! Christmas gifts, here I come.
Great design, Anna!
Gorgeous. I would love to try the Oatmeal/Almond Milk for the kids, Lavender Eucalyptus for the whole family, and Grapefruit Bergamot just for me!
Bay Rum & Vetiver, Tioga, and Lavender Eucalyptus for me, please!
I just have to giggle about the name. It is one of the hardest words for non dutch speakers to pronounce!!!!
These all look lovely – and I love supporting fellow etsy artisans. I think the Bay Rum & Vetiver is right up my alley! Great packaging, and fabulous giveaway!
Oh, my gosh, these look amazing. The lemongrass basil or grapefruit bergamot… yum!
Also schoon can mean beautiful too. ocourse I’d love to win one. The bergamot angrapefruit the rensslaer and the lemgrass basil ones sound wonderful!!
The olive oil/cocoa butter! These scents look so great.
Oh man, those are some good-looking bars of soap! Bay rum and vetiver will always capture my heart.
They are beautiful! My picks would be Rensselaer (cardamom!), Tioga and Herkimer.
All look incredible – my favorites are Lemongrass Basil, Bay Rum Vetiver, and Lavender Lemon. Thank you!
Wow, that packaging. Bay Rum & Vetiver :: Lavender Lemon :: Pure / Unscented.
Oh Yes! Lavender Eucalyptus, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, and Herkimer sound delightful!
Such wonderful choices – will definitely keep in mind for upcoming gifting season (for others along with myself). However, if I were to luck into some soap – Herkimen, Rensselaer and Tioga would be my choices! Please and Thank you
The soaps look great! I want to try them all, but would love to win the herkimer, almond milk & oatmeal and grapefruit & bergamot
Beautiful packaging!! Tioga, Rensselaer and Bay Rum & Vetiver are my favourites.
Lavender lemon, grapefruit bergamot & Lemongrass basil.
I’m a soapmaker myself, and I’m intrigued by Rensselaer, Tioga, and Ulster.
almond milk oatmeal sounds delish! Also grapefruit bergamot and olive oil cocoa butter.
Beautiful packaging. I looked at the image before reading the post. and thought that design was very much your style — the shape/weight of the mountain symbol, and the negative space scooped out of the pattern below.
These all sound wonderful, but these are particularly appealing:
Tioga (trying to steer the BF to natural woodsy scents and away from the gacky drugstore pre-shave he uses)
Olive Oil and Cocoa butter (because he has very dry skin and gets itchy)
Herkimer (because what a great story, and that combo sounds both warming and refreshing)
Lemongrass Basil, Rensselaer, and Lavender Lemon would be my picks! Nice work on the design as well. They look very clean and modern.
Tioga, Rensellaer, Ulster. They all sound yummy plus love the names!!!
Lovely packaging! I also love the name. My boyfriend’s family is Dutch so these would be a great present for them. I’d like to try Grapefruit & Bergamot, Rensselaer, and Ulster!
SO lovely! Lavender lemon sounds wonderful! Also, grapefruit and bergamot, olive oil and cocoa butter!
So many good choices but I like Lavender Eucalyptus, Grapefruit & Bergamot, and Bay Rum & Vetiver.
Great packaging design! 🙂 I’d get the Pure/Unscented because usually “unscented” is either non-existent or not luxurious. I’d love to use a fancy soap for a change that won’t make me break out in a rash!
Ok, I’ll be buying the bay rum and vetiver for my husband as a little bday gift but I’d also love a chance to try out the herkimer and ulster. Congrats on the great logo (and to the couple starting an amazing business)!
Looks great! I like the Rensselaer Tioga and the Pure. Thank you!
These look beautiful!
I would want to try the herkimer, lemongrass basil, and tioga
The logo looks great. Bay Rum & Vetiver, Rensselaer, and Lavender Eucalyptus would be my picks.
These soaps all sound (and look) so good! I’m from Holland and I love the ‘Schoon’ reference 🙂 Would love to slather some Bay Rum & Vetiver, Lavender Eucalyptus and Rensselaer loveliness on my Amsterdam-paws. Thank you!
The Almond milk and oatmeal, lavender eucalyptus and Tioga all sound wonderful!
So cool to see a New York brand with a Dutch name :D! And I absolutely adore the packaging. My 3 picks would be:
Almond milk & oatmeal
Grapefruit & bergamot
I’m thrilled by the launch of these soaps! I have psoriasis and have to be especially careful with what I use on my skin. Soaps like these are so wonderful to find! I’d choose Lemongrass basil, almond milk & oatmeal and the Olive oil and cocoa butter soaps!
Ulster, lemongrass basil, and grapefruit and bergamot.
Nice packaging too!
I like the sounds of the olive oil & cocoa butter, bay rum & vetiver and renssealer. Yummy!
Lovely packaging! The Bay Rum & Vetiver, Ulster and the. lavender and eucalyptus sound divine.
Wow, that’s really cool! You did such a great job on the designs. I think the only problem I’d have with this soap is that it’s so pretty I wouldn’t want to mess it up by using it. I think I’d like to try the Almond Milk & Oatmeal, the Bay Rum & Vetiver, and the Herkimer. (Great prices on these too, by the way. They’d make good Christmas gifts.)
I love bar soaps! I’d choose Grapefruit & Bergamot, Lavender Lemon, and Tioga 😀
You did a fantastic job! Normally I’m unscented all the way, but they have some fantastic combos. I would break out of my plain rut and go with grapefruit and bergamot, lavender lemon, and the rensselaer.
These sound wonderful! I would love to have the ulster, almond milk and oatmeal, and the lavender eucalyptus.
Mmmh… no “shipping to Europe” option in the Etsy shop? 🙁
Therefore, winning the soaps would be nice… I might really like lemongrass basil, lavender eucalyptus, and grapefruit bergamot.
Hi Nina, I just asked Stephanie, and she said shipping to Europe is no problem! Something must have been set incorrectly—she’s going to look into it ASAP. 🙂
Hi Nina, worldwide shipping is now available. Thanks for mentioning this!
Grapefruit and bergamont, bay rum and vetiver, and lavender lemon!
Grapefruit and Bergamot, Tioga, Bay Rum and Vetiver. They all sound divine, though!
Great job on the packaging! These look like really yummy soaps, I especially like the almond/oatmeal, the ulster, and the tioga.
I love how unique each scent combination is! Lavender Lemon, Grapefruit & Bergamot, and Bay Rum & Vetiver sound amazing.
And of course, the packaging is perfect! Well done. 🙂
I need a new soap option as my skin is driving me crazy lately. I would love the olive oil and cocoa butter, almond milk and oatmeal and pure/unscented. I’m actually going to order the olive oil regardless if I win!
oh so exciting! fancy soaps are quickly becoming my not-so-guilty pleasure of mine, and these look so beautiful – nice work! I’m excited about LOTS of their varieties, but probably mostly 1) Bay Rum & Vetiver, 2) Grapefruit & Bergamot, and 3) Rennselaer. Hooray, thanks for the chance to win!
This is so great – what a rad collaboration!
I love the sound of these three: Tioga, Bay Rum & Vetiver, Almond Milk & Oatmeal
Oh my, soooo hard to choose!
I’d like to try the soaps in this order: olive oil+cocoa butter, bergamot+grapefruit, rensselaer (so hard to remember the name 🙂 and after those almond milk+oats and lavender lemon…
Very nice wraps, Anna!
Now I must go to my essential oils box and sniff some… 😉
I JUST found Schoon on Etsy right before I saw your blog post in my FB feed! I’d choose almond milk & oatmeal, bay rum & vetiver, and lavender lemon.
I’d love to try those three:
Grapefruit & Bergamot, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter and Almond Milk & Oatmeal
ooo my favorites were all right in a row— Lemongrass Basil, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, & Pure/Unscented. <3
…you had me at Bay Rum & Vetiver. Two more soaps that I’d love to try are Almond Milk & Oatmeal and Rensselaer. To be honest: I want to try them all 🙂
I like Lavender Ecucalyphis, Bergamont, and Herkimer.
They all look amazing!
But I’ll go with Bayrum and Vetiver, Lavender and Eucalyptus and Tioga
Wishing them luck in their new business.
Wow, great design, congratulations! My favourites are: LAVENDER LEMON, LAVENDER EUCALYPTUS, LEMONGRASS BASIL
Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Lavender Lemon, and Lemongrass Basil!
grapefruit and bergamot, lemongrass basil and olive oil and cocoa butter. the logo is beautiful!
Tioga sounds perfect for fall.
I would love to try Pure/Unscented, Almond Milk & Oatmeal, and Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter.
Almond/oatmeal, olive oil/cocoa butter, and unscented please!!!
grapefruit & bergamot
Wow! These look really lovely. I’m so picky about fragrance and usually stick to something citrus (Bergamot is a favorite) or unscented.
I’m excited to try the Grapefruit & Bergamot, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter and the Pure/Unscented.
Btw, is this the same Stephanie Klose who writes for Serious Eats? If so she wrote a couple of great pieces about my husband and our soda and cocktail syrup company. I’m happy to see she’s branched out into another creative area. We wish her and her husband much success in this endeavor.
Yes, it’s the same Stephanie! 🙂 She also has a personal blog here:
Great job on the packaging – it looks great!
Almond milk and oatmeal, lavender lemon and lemongrass basil all sound amazing!
schoon means clean in Dutch and being a resident of Amsterdam and who will be visiting NYC this coming December ( so I can take part
grapefruit and bergamot, olive oil and cocoa butter, and lavender lemon are my top picks, but I wish I could smell them all right now!
bay rum and vetiver – we have a bay tree at work and i love its scent when i’m watering it
tioga – spicy sounds delicious.
olive oil an cocoa butter – because winter is coming soon and it sounds good for dry skin.
I would love to try out the Tioga, Almond Milk & Oatmeal and the Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter!
Hard to narrow it down to just three! But if I must … herkimer, grapefruit & bergamont, and herkimer.
I need to try these like now!! And the design is so beatiful! I would love to try olive oil & cocoa butter, Ulster or Tioga
Ooh love the logo, very cool. Rum & vetiver sounds lovely, grapefruit & bergamot would probably be a favourite, always love lavender. Do you know why the sandalwood one is called Ulster?
Those soaps sound amazing – I’d love to try everything, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to Grapefruit + Bergamot, the Olive Oil + Cocoa Butter, and Tioga
“…Schoon Soap opts to use a combination of vegetable oils instead. We also eschew the use of any other animal product or animal byproduct, including honey and colorants made from insects.”
That just made my day!! I also love the design and packaging; little works of art. The most intriguing scents & non-scents to me would be unscented, grapefruit & bergamot (oh hello!!) and almond milk & oatmeal (since it’s almond milk, obviously) 🙂
So hard to choose just three – they all sound delightful. I’d love to try the rensselaer, ulster and the grapefruit & bergamot. Congratulations on the brilliant collaboration!
Renssalaer, Tioga, and Ulster. Come to me, soaps.
lovely looking soaps. thanks for the chance to win.
lavender/eucalyptus, lemongrass/basil & grapefruit/bergamot are the ones I’d like to try.
HERKIMER, RENSSELAER, LAVENDER LEMON
Hi from Rome, so happy to see a giveaway open for international entries! I’d love to try almond milk &oatmeal, herkimer and unscented for my partner!
The almond milk & oatmeal, lavender lemon and olive oil & cocoa butter are my favorites!
I’d love to have a nice stack of each bar on the shelf in the bathroom. I’d hope that the Olive Oil and Cocoa Butter and Pure would play nice with my sensitive skin.
I thought I was going to say almond, almond, almond (I am an alnmond soap girl) but when I looked at the descriptions Rensselaer , tioga and ulster sound so interesting that I will have to go with those !
Wow, so many lovely scents to choose from! After deliberation I think these sound the most luscious to me:
Almond Mild & Oatmeal
Lavendar & Eucalyptus
Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter
Herkimer in honour of the clove Lifesavers I loved once upon a time, Resselaer to recall my mother’s obsession with tropical woods and Tioga to bring to mind big northern trees and thick quiet carpets of needles underfoot.
Gorgeous soaps, great job on the design Anna!
Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Lemongrass Basil and Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter all sound divine to me!!!
Anna, I love the packaging! Totally chic. They all sound wonderful, but I think I’d have to choose the Ulster, Almond Milk + Oatmeal, and Bay Rum + Vetiver (we have a candle with a similar composition and I just ADORE the scent). Thanks for sharing and for hosting this giveaway!
Gorgeous. Herkimer, Tioga and bay rum & vetiver. Thanks for the opportunity.
Beautiful, & congrats. For me: Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Lavender & Eucalyptus, and Rensallear.

These look awesome! Bay Rum, Grapefruit & Lemongrass would be my top 3.
The branding is so great, Anna! Not surprised at all. 🙂 I think my three are: Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Lavender Lemon, and Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter.
They all sound lovely. I would most like to try Tioga, Herkimer, and lavender eucalyptus.
The olive oil & cocoa butter sounds like a great pairing! Love the mountain logo on the soaps too – the scale is perfect!
Gorgeous packaging! The ones that sound amazing to me are: Almond Milk & Oatmeal; Grapefruit and Bergamot; and Lavender Eucalyptus.
Herkimer and Ulster sound wonderful to me. I love the packaging, beautiful work!

Top three are: Lemongrass Basil, Lavender Lemon, Grapefruit & Bergamot
Plus all the others sound amazing as well!
BAY RUM & VETIVER, HERKIMER, LAVENDER EUCALYPTUS,
Lavender eucalyptus, lemongrass basil & grapefruit bergamot

– Bay Rum & Vetiver

Lemongrass basil, Lavendar Eucalyptus, and Tioga. Great packaging!
grapefruit & bergamot, grapefruit & bergamot, grapefruit & bergamot

Oh my, they all sound amazing. I would choose Grapefruit & bergamot, Herkimer & Bay Rum & Vetiver
Lavender & eucalyptus sounds fresh!!
I am always glad to see new vegan product lines! I would definitely love the unscented bars, as my husband hates anything scented but wants everything to be vegan and all-natural. 🙂
Love the design, Anna! They all sound divine, but I think my favorites would be the Herkimer, Rensselaer, and Bay Rum & Vetiver scents.
Hard to pick just three, but: herkimer, grapefruit & bergamot, and lemongrass basil. They all sound amazing though, and great designs, Anna!
Unwrapping the soap will be a bittersweet moment because the package design looks too pretty to toss!
rensselaer / lavender eucalyptus / grapefruit bergamot
I’m so down with wonderfully scented vegan soaps. Score!
These are my favs: Grapefruit & Bergamot, Lavender Eucalyptus and Lavender Lemon.
I like anything citrus-y, so the Grapefruit and Bergamot pleases me, my husband is partial to lemongrass basil (so if I win, I’ll be nice and give him a bar) and Tioga is for me alone because reminds me of that time I travelled across Canada, staying in terrible hostels and surviving the gross, slimy showers only because of an amazing smelling bar of cedarwood soap.
Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Tioga, and Rensselaer for the win.
Though they all have wonderful scent combinations.
mmm, they all sound great. But especially Tioga, Rensselaer, and Ulster!
such beautiful packaging
rensselaer, ulster and lemongrass basil.
i love the dutch name. (i am dutch) doesn’t happen too often living in the us, that brands have dutch names.
Grapefruit bergamot, lemon lavender, Tioga. And the bay rum. and Herkimer. And and and…
Lavender Eucalyptus, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, and RENSSELAER! 🙂
Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Pure/Unscented and Grapefruit & Bergamot. I love that they offer unscented soaps.
and the scents are spot-on, pretty hard to choose! I do want the grapefruit+bergamot, Herkimer and Tioga soaps.
Herkimer, Rensselaer and Tioga. I have no idea what they mean, but they sound delish.
The logo looks great. And a luxurious bar of soap is such a lovely thing (I mean I like a luxurious bottle of body wash, but soap has gotten a bad rap these days when it can be so so awesome). I was first drawn to Grapefruit bergamont because obviously (two scents I’m always drawn to), then Tioga sounds intriguing and lovely (mmm trees), followed by lemongrass basil. And then… well I guess I’ll stop since you said to tell you the first three I was drawn to.
Anna, these are so beautiful! Great work, as always. Tioga, Herkimer, and Ulster sound amaaaazing.
Hi from Croatia!
Love the design and also handmade cosmetics in generally (actually I’m making my own face oil).
Few of those soaps have quite unusual combinations and I’ll love to try Rensselaer, Ulster and Bay Rum & Vetiver!
Love the design and can’t wait to try the soaps! I’ve got my eye on the Grapefruit & Bergamot, Almond Milk & Oatmeal and Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter bars.
I like the sound of Olive oil and cocoa butter, pure/unscented and tioga thanks
Grapefruit & Bergamot

Lemongrass and basil, Bay Rum and Vetiver, and Grapefruit and Bergamot sound wonderful.
Bay Run & Vetiver, Lavender & Eucalyptus, and Tioga!
These look so great!!
I’d love Almond milk & oatmeal, Bay rum and vetiver, and Rensselaer.
It’s so hard to pick just three! They look good enough to eat! Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Bay Rum & Vetiver and Rensselaer.
Lavender Lemon, Lemongrass Basil, and Grapefruit & Bergamot.
For me, the bergamot + grapefruit, for my husband the almond/oatmeal, and in winter the olive oil + cocoa butter. These are such beautiful soaps!
Nice packaging! Won’t need to hide the extra bars in a drawer. Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, Lavender Lemon, and Grapefruit & Bergamot sound appealing to me.
Love the design! Herkimer, Grapefruit Bergamont and Tioga are my choices.
I love the logo and the imprint on the bar, so toughtfull! This post as a great timing since my favorite soap making company on etsy as stop running their business. I would
love to try :
Almond milk & oatmeal
Thanx for letting us discover this sweet company!
Bay Rum & Vetiver, Grapefruit & Bergamot, and Unscented!
olive oil & cocoa butter
These sound fantastic, and I’m a sucker for pretty soaps and smelly bath stuff. Tioga seems like a guaranteed favourite, along with lavender eucalyptus and rensselaer. The giveaway got me looking at them, and now I just might have to order some, winner or not!
I love the packaging, bravo Anna!! I’d pick the Lavender Lemon (sounds like a bath waiting to happen), Grapefruit + Bergamot (boyfriend would die), and Ulster (because I don’t even know what the heck that is and I’m intrigued).
A big HELL YES to Bay Rum & Vetiver!
Ooo, I do love a good bar of soap. I’d have to say that Grapefruit & Bergamot, Herkimer, and Tioga all sound delightful.
I’d go with Pure, Rensselaer, and Ulster. Divine!
They look so pretty! I really love the description of the almond milk & oatmeal, cocoa & almond butter and the pure/unscented (can you tell I’m very sensitive to fragrance?).
Wow! These all sound just amazing.
The three that tickled me the most were:
Looks fantastic! I would try the Rensselaer, Olive Oil and Cocca Butter and Almond Milk and Oatmeal!
Almond milk and oatmeal for when my skin is acting up and needs soothing.
Lavender lemon for sleepytime bubble baths.
Olive oil and cocoa butter when I need extra moisturizing.
I think I’m going to have to go with scents that are more on the unusual (to me) because it’s always nice to try something new!
Bay Rum & Vetiver
wow how do you chose just three! But my picks would be lavender lemon, almond milk and oatmeal, and lavender eucalyptus! Great giveaway!
I won’t enter the give-away since we are family, but your package design is wonderful!! Will buy some ASAP. So proud of you.
Gorgeous! Herkimer, Rensselaer, and Ulster…..in honor of my upbringing upstate. Too bad they didn’t make a Schenectady!
Would be fabulous to get to try these all the way in South Africa!would love Lemongrass Basil, Lavender Lemon and Tioga
Thank you for a lovely opportunity
Grapefruit & Bergamot
Such a nice blend of modern and pretty! Great job!!
Would love to try the Ulster, Rensselaer and Lavander lemon.

I’d love to try the almond milk and oatmeal (of course!) Also the warm spice and sweetness of
bay rum and vetiver & rensselaer sound heavenly.
Oh, I love being introduced to new (to me) soaps! They all sound wonderful, but I’d pick the almond milk and oatmeal, the pure/unscented and the olive oil and cocoa butter!
Lavender Eucalyptus, Lavender Lemon, an Grapefruit Bergamot!
Wow, the soaps look beautiful! Really great design and packaging, well done! The different varieties are super attractive, my favourites are Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Grapefruit & Bergamot (I actually see a kind of breakfasty theme evolving here ….) and Rensselaer.
Bay Rum & Vetiver, for sure. Also Herkimer and it’s a toss-up between Rensselaer and Tioga! (Love the woodsy, spicy scents…)
Oh I can’t pick just three! Right now i like the grapefruit + bergamot, the almond milk + oatmeal, the lemongrass + basil, but I would also be seriously tempted by the unusual combination of olive oil and cocoa butter, and it’s always nice to find a new unscented option.
This may not be the best place for this feeback but better than nowhere at all! I have to mention that typically ‘unscented’ just means that a product is of no particular scent, and sometimes even has neutralizing fragrances added. People like me who can be very sensitive are often trained to entirely look over these offerings as they can often be worse than products using naturally derived scents. I’m glad she lists the ingredients and put in the product description that the soap is ‘fragrance free’, but I sort of wish she’d just stuck with ‘pure’ as the name and dropped unscented for this reason.
Jessica, thanks for that feedback! If there were to be a special category in the shop, what would a better term be for those three soaps (Pure, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, and Almond Milk & Oatmeal) than, well, “unscented”? “Fragrance-free”?
Ahhhh! Grapefruit bergamot, lemon lavender, and bay rum vetiver all sound so lovely. You did amazing on the package and design!
Oh, I think I’d love grapefruit&bergamot, olive oil&cocoa butter and Rensselaer 🙂
Yummmm, bay rum + vetiver, herkimer, and grapefruit + bergamot. Sounds like a perfect autumn/winter trio!

I’d go with LAVENDER EUCALYPTUS, GRAPEFRUIT & BERGAMOT, ALMOND MILK & OATMEAL.
Oof, yum! I’m so excited about Tioga and Bay Rum & Vetiver – love woodsy, spicy, earthy scents. And the Almond milk & Oatmeal sounds so nourishing and calming for dry winter skin.
Bay Rum and Vetiver, Tioga,and the Rensselaer – it’s so great to see products utilizing warm, woodsy scents, and the packaging is glorious – simple, beautiful, and un-fussy.
These soaps are beautiful! I would love the Bay Rum & Vetiver, the Grapefruit & Bergamont and Lemongrass Basil.
Almond milk, rensselaer, lavender lemon
Website & packaging nicely done. My 3 picks are: Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, and Ulster.
Anna, thank you for hosting this contest! I love the packaging!
I think that the Grapefruit and Bergamot, Herkimer, and Ulster sound quite divine.
Grapefruit & Bergamot sounds perfect – not too feminine or masculine.
I would select pure/unscented for all three.
the grapefruit and bergamot sounds great
Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Grapefruit & Bergamot and Lavender Lemon.
the scented soaps sound heavenly~
grapefruit and bergamot
but i’d love to try the pure/unscented as well!
hope you’re doing well, Anna!
If the soaps are anywhere near as good as the snappy logo (love that it’s embossed onto the soap) they’re onto a winner! Lavender lemon and citrusy, Tioga and Bay Rum & Vetiver, Grapefruit and Bergamot – three showers done!
Pure, olive oil/cocoa butter, and almond oatmeal. So nice, 3 fragrance free options.
Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter as well as Grapefruit & Bergmot sounds delightful! I’m also just wildly curious about what Ulster would smell like.
i would love to try the Ulster, the pure /unsented and the Bay rum/ Vertiver .. im always intrigued by new and beautiful soap and the packaging is lovely .
Hi Anna, I would love to try lavender eucalyptus for sure. Then grapefruit and bergamot sounds interesting. And then maybe bay rum and vetiver. Delicious!
Ulster, bay rum & vetiver, and herkimer all sound completely awesome.
Love the packaging and that these soaps are vegan! I like the sound of grapefruit and bergamot, lavender eucalyptus and lemongrass basil.
Almod milk & oatmeal + Olive oil & cocoa butter + Bay rum & vetiver
Greetings from Sweden (:
They all sound so amazing! I think my favorite ones are the lavender lemon and Ulster. And I’d have to try the olive oil and cocoa butter because it’s so intriguing. Passing these on to a friend who is allergic to fragrance!
PS- the logo is awesome! ❤
These look lovely! The Grapefruit & Bergamot, the Tioga, and the Bay Rum & Vetiver sound like they would smell amazing!
Bay Rum + Vetiver, Lemongrass Basil, and Almond Milk Oatmeal sound not only lovely…but delicious! Great design for the new line…
Wow….they all sound amazing! If I had to narrow it down, I’d go with Herkimer, Bay Rum & Vetiver, & Tioga.
-grapefruit and bergamot (two of my favourite scents!)
I’d love to try the pure/unscented! I am either endlessly distracted by fragrances that I like, or itchy and sneeezy/drippy by fragrances that I cannot tolerate.The ingredient list for pure/unscented is just right – short and lovely.
bay rum-vetiver, that sounds amazing! great design anna!
the Rensselaer, Bay Rum & Vetiver, and the Herkimer!
I’m so in love with the packaging on these soaps and its hard to choose just 3, but Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Grapefruit & Bergamot, and Rensselaer would be my choices!
Grapefruit & Bergamot, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter and Almond Milk & Oatmeal all sound lovely!
These just look divine!! It’s so hard to pick, but my 3 favourites would be: Grapefruit & Bergamot, Lavender Lemon, and Ulster.
Grapefruit & Bergamot, Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, Lavender+Eucalyptus sound great.
The branding and packaging are perfect, congratulations! I cannot wait to try the soaps, soap-obsessed person that I am. Would love to get the Olive Oil & Cocoa Butter, Bay Rum & Vetiver and Tioga.
Almond milk and oatmeal, olive oil and cocoa butter, and tioga!
Great work on the packaging, these are gorgeous! Looks like fantastic soap, too, especially the unique scents. Tioga looks fabulous, as does the Bay Rum & Vetiver one you mentioned and the rensselaer. Love the more masculine scents; it’s absolutely not true that women want their soap to smell like vanilla and overpowering florals.
Okay, I’ll bite. Mmm, grapefruit, and I’m not sure I can resist the Herkimer.
Ohhhh the designs are lovely and the soaps look amazing!
I’d go for Almond Milk & Oatmeal, Pure, or Tioga
Looks amazing! I’m digging the RENSSELAER and HERKIMER. And a little LAVENDER EUCALYPTUS, while I’m at it.
What gorgeous gorgeous packaging! Great job on the design Anna! So lovely to see really beautiful natural products too. I’m so sensitive to scent in beauty products – find chemically smells generally overwhelming as well as hard on my skin. These look so beautiful and is great to see an ingredient list made up of words I recognise and can pronounce!
If I were to win I would love to try the Almond Milk and Oatmeal (for soothing evening cleansing), Grapefruit and Bergamot (for a refreshing morning wake-up), and Ulster (because I’m Irish! – and the scent combination sounds heavenly!).
Congratulations again to you Anna and to Stephanie!
The Almond Milk & Oatmeal sounds amazing!
Grapefruit bergamot, lemon lavender some of my favourite scents.
Bergamot and grapefruit
i’ve always loved almond and oatmeal soaps so that would definitely be one pick. i also love bergamot and am curious about the combo with grapefruit. & last, I’d pick rensselaer because I adore anything with cardmom in it.
Olive oil& coco a butter, tioga, almond milk & oatmilk
Almond milk & oatmeal, Olive oil & cocoa butter, and Ulster (of course!). These look amazing. Will these be for sale in Europe / Ireland?
Marion, worldwide shipping is already available! 🙂
Tioga sounds fab I love a spicy scent but also love the sound of Lemongrass, basil soap.
My favourite ones are 1) Almond Milk and Oatmeal, 2) Lemongrass Basil and 3) Grapefruit and Bergamont – they sound so nice, I wish you could scratch and sniff the screen!

Lemongrass Basil, Ulster, and Herkimer are my picks! I love their packaging and unique scent combinations.
Grapefruit & Bergamot, Lemongrass Basil, and the Herkimer sound perfect to me 🙂 xx
Grapefruit & Bergamot (pick-me-up for winter)
Lavender & Eucalyptus (ahhh)
Love the opportunity for international entries! Three favourites: Grapefruit & bergamot (partly because a friend insist that smelling of grapefruit takes five years off one’s actual age), Pure/Unscented and Lavender Lemon.
I’m a sucker for apothecary items! Especially when in such good packaging! My top 3 soaps would be: :Lavender Eucalyptus, Tioga, and Ulster!
Lavender lemon, unscented, and grapefruit . These look lovely
The bay rum + vetiver, grapefruit + bergamot, and lavender eucalyptus
sound incredible. I have to get them!
