HOW IT ALL BEGAN:   I stumbled upon the world of soap making back in 2005 as a party planner searching for the perfect party favor - soap!  I researched and became fascinated with cold process soap making which allowed the soap maker to control all of the ingredients in the soap.  What started out as a fascination quickly turned into a passion and Olive and Dewdrop was founded in 2010.  This was also the beginning of an eco-conscious overhaul that would culminate in a commitment to make a sustainable natural soap bar
WHAT'S BEHIND THE NAME?  The name “Olive and Dewdrop” came about as I wanted a name that reflected my mission to create a sustainable natural soap that not only cleansed, but was made with plant-based oils and butters selected for their nourishing, moisturizing and conditioning properties.  Olive oil, the main skin loving oil in our soaps, was chosen because it is great for all skin types, hypo-allergenic, and full of antioxidants.  “Olive” is also a symbol of peace.  We believe it’s important to start your morning with a self-care routine that includes calm and peace that carries with you throughout your day.  “Dewdrop” means a drop of morning dew or morning moisture, and we like to think it's the added benefit of the skin-loving oils and butters that make up our soaps.  And together, Olive + Dewdrop embodies what our soap is all about.  Naturally good and gentle on the environment.

OUR FORMULATION AND PROCESS:  Each natural soap bar is made in small batches using the cold process soap method which keeps all of the nourishing ingredients in the soap where it belongs.   Soaps are cured for 3-6 weeks producing a hard, long lasting soap bar.  Not only do our handcrafted soaps cleanse and refresh, they are loaded with olive oil & coconut oil and natural shea & cocoa butters that produce a thick, creamy lather.  Our Natural Soap bars are scented with therapeutic grade essential oils and naturally colored with botanicals, herbs and clays.
