A Letter from the Owner
Dear Valued Lathermore Lovers,
Lathermore Soap Company started as a successful attempt at creating an all-natural, skin loving soap for my mother who was suffering from psoriasis. After watching her battle for months to calm her skin with steroid creams and prescription drugs, I decided enough was enough. There had to be a more natural option to help her. After a lot of research, and a few test batches, I was able to create a soap for my mother that allowed her to put away the steroid creams and regain her skin’s natural clarity. Once the word got out that I was making all-natural soap for my family, friends and neighbors began to ask if they could purchase soap, as well.
By August 2015, Lathermore Soap Company, LLC was officially formed. Beginning with a modest line up of eight Premium All-Natural Bar Soaps, my mother and I traveled all over the State attending fairs, festivals, and shows spreading the word of Lathermore and demonstrating the power of handmade, plant-based, all-natural skincare.
Since then, we have expanded our product line by sourcing the best ingredients. We focus on using predominately raw, natural harvest, and fair trade oils, butters, and sugars. Our Natural products are created using 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils and our Novelty products feature fragrance oil blends which are 100% phthalate free. Our Body Creams, Sugar Scrubs, and Facial Creams require us to use a preservative to avoid the growth of mold, yeast, and bacteria. We are pleased to use broad-spectrum preservatives which are both paraben and formaldehyde free.
Because of our dedication to these standards, in just a few short years Lathermore Soap Company has grown from a leisurely hobby into a full time business. Since 2015, our handmade plant-based skincare line has expanded to include both Natural and Novelty Soaps, Essential Bath Bombs, Body Creams, Whipped Sugar Scrubs, and much more! After experiencing rapid growth in 2017 & 2018, we have gained a loyal following of hundreds of customers.
We are dedicated to continuing to provide premium quality, handmade, plant-based skincare that you can feel confident using on your family and yourself. We appreciate your support over the last few years and look forward to what 2019 has to bring!
Chelcee D. Cheers
Owner, Lathermore Soap Company
