Real. Simple. Soap.
Kumbha Moon Soap Company makes handcrafted soaps, body care and household cleaning products in small batches using only natural botanical ingredients & a little quirky creativity. Our products never contain any added synthetic colorants, fragrances or additives and our homemade soap bases are made with food-grade oils. Kumbha Moon Soap Company makes each soap batch in small quantities totally from scratch using plant-based oils, such as olive, coconut, castor & sunflower, avocado, and almond that condition & nourish your skin. We believe that wholesome ingredients are just as important to the products that you use on your skin as they are in the food that you eat. We often head to our local farmers market, farm stands, natural food stores, our backyard garden, and the woods around us in southwestern New York State to find natural ingredients to add to our soaps. We invite our customers to turn our products over and read the ingredients listed on the label: we guarantee that you'll be able to pronounce them and recognize many as items in your own pantry cupboard.
Kumbha Moon Soap Company products are subtly fragrant using the highest quality steam-distilled essential oils that impart authentic essences that release their aromatic qualities as warm water & gentle rubbing lathers the soap. Commercial soap products contain synthetic chemicals that are intended to make their artificial scents actually adhere to your skin (and to us, that's not natural!) Our bars will fill your shower or bath with the aromatherapy qualities of the essentials oils and gently linger with you as you prepare for your day. We also make many unscented varieties that release the comforting aroma of real simple soap.
We find true inspiration in Mother Nature and use all kinds of botanical ingredients to naturally color our soap. We use infusions of things like paprika, nettle leaf, madder root, safflower powder, sandalwood powder, spirulina, turmeric, & black walnut hull powder to add color and also stir in things like flower petals, herbs, ground spices, oatmeal, tea leaves, grated ginger root, and honey for bling and exfoliation properties.
Behind the Soap
Kimberly & Kellie are the quirky creative team behind Kumbha Moon Soap Company. They are also the manufacturing line, inventory control supervisors, quality assurance department, sales and customer service directors, new product development guinea pigs, accounting wonks, website whizzes, utensil washers, and the company's official animal petters. Kumbha Moon Soap Company operates from an old crooked 1890 farmhouse situated against rolling farmland and wooded hills, with backdoor visitors that include deer, fox, woodchucks, coyotes, and a beautiful bobcat.
The Kumbha Moon girlz believe in living as lightly as possible on this planet and support using sustainable ingredients and techniques in everything that we do. We especially support advancing the "shop local; eat local; live local" theme and try to source our soap ingredients, food, and life's pleasures as close to home as possible. Kimberly & Kellie also tend to be a little off-beat, unpredictable, temperamental, & sometimes obsessive-compulsive Aquarians who love life, play hard, get dirty, & make a really good soap to get them squeaky clean.
