We started making soap in 2012 out of necessity. I struggled to find a gentle and natural soap for my sensitive skin. No matter what I used my skin never felt good and I was tired of searching for a soap I liked. So, we decided to start making our own. After a few years of improving and sharing with friends and family, it became apparent we needed to make this available to others. Black Bean Soap Works was established in July of 2015. We are very excited to share this simple, clean, luxurious 100% extra virgin olive oil soap made with only saponified 100% extra virgin olive oil, milk, water and pure essential oils. We hope you love and enjoy our soap as much as we do and share it with others.
We have been asked, "So, what makes Black Bean Soap Works special and stand out in a sea of hand-made soaps"? We hand make our soaps in small batches of 50 or less with only 4 ingredients; saponified 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Milk, Water and Pure Essential Oils. Our soap is one of very very few soaps on the market that is made with 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Other soap makers may claim they have an olive oil soap, but typically they are mixed with other oils, such as palm, coconut, or other various vegetable based oils.
We stand by our motto; simple, clean, luxurious. This is exactly what our soap is. We don’t use fragrance oils, palm oils, or any harsh detergents. Our soap allows for the ingredients to do what they are supposed to do, nourish and clean your skin without stripping it of it’s natural oils and leaves you feeling soft and refreshed. Olive oil is an antioxidant that can help protect the skin from premature skin aging, helps restore smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. So why not use it to make a beautiful natural bar of soap? It has been done for centuries and it was not until soap was commercially made that it was changed. We feel there is no reason to change something that is this good. Olive oil soap is an extremely mild soap and is known to provide relief to such skin conditions as eczema and psoriasis, and we have had personal and customer claims of just this. I never want to use another soap. It has changed my skin for the better and I would suffer without it. There is no denying the benefits of the #1 ingredient in our soap, Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
