Our Dedication to Quality:

Lathermore Soap Company specializes in handcrafting 100% vegan and cruelty-free bath and body products. We are dedicated to using only sustainable ingredients sourced from fellow small or woman-owned businesses. We use only phthalate-free fragrances, paraben- & formaldehyde-free preservatives, naturally derived colorants and completely recyclable-reusable-biodegradable packaging.

Furthermore, we encourage our customers to shop for a cause via our SHE Initiative. Each quarter we partner with a women-centric nonprofit organization in the midwest dedicated to assisting women secure employment, education, housing, healthcare and childcare. While spreading the word of their mission, we also donate 5% of our profits to the charity at the close of the quarter.



Dear 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 and Body Polishing 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.

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 2023 has to bring!

With much appreciation,
