Bearsville is located in upstate New York, in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. The Catskills contain more than 30 mountain peaks that exceed 3,500 feet in elevation, and 6 significant rivers. It is an expansive, majestic and largely untamed region of the country. We feel extremely fortunate for our natural surroundings. Powerful rivers, burning campfires and views of the mountains are luxuries not to be taken for granted.
Our soaps are totally different from commercial soaps. Handmade through a cold process method that dates back centuries, the soap retains all its natural benefits - including moisturizers called glycerin. Glycerin is highly valued in consumer products for its incredible moisturizing qualities.
Commercial soap makers remove the glycerin from their soaps and put it in other products (like lotions or balms) to sell those. To compensate for what the stripped soap lacks, they frankenstein the soap adding harsh chemicals that dry your skin out. We think authentic soap in its original state is simply better soap.
And personally, we don't want Frankenstein in the shower with us.
We were guys who were tired of neon bodywashes and soaps that were packed with chemicals and wrapped in overpriced packaging. We just wanted an honest bar of soap with great, masculine scents.
Driven by this curiosity to find a better bar of soap, we started making it ourselves. We researched the best formulas, added the highest quality ingredients and selected the manliest of scents.
Our simple curiosity led us to a naturally superior bar of soap. And, sensing a greater need for a better natural men's soap, we set forth to make it available to other similarly-minded guys.
C'mon, visit us in Bearsville and lather up.
