Our Story

Charmaine & Mike GillisWelcome to Ocean Bottom Soap Company

We started making soaps over 20 years ago because of a need to keep our family more healthy. Our soaps are hand-crafted from custom blended formulas using natural, organic ingredients found all over the globe for their unique properties. Wherever possible we support farmers who are dedicated to the principles of sustainable agriculture through fair trade. It is our goal to create wholesome, natural products that are environmentally friendly and safe as well as aromatic, artistic and cleansing. We pride ourselves on creating soaps that are moisturizing and promote healthy, clean skin.  Our soaps are packed full of high quality oils, butters and botanical with excellent lathering power for a wonderful skin care experience.

Why hand-crafted soap? Many commercial soaps by comparison (the soap you buy at the grocery store) isn’t really soap at all.  It’s detergent! And it’s full of chemicals and sulfates rather than natural fats and oils. Natural soaps are good for your skin because glycerin, a natural humectant, remains in the soap as a result of our unique process helping to moisture your skin. Our soaps are chemical free, environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable.  Even though our soaps are now commercially available each small batch is still handmade, using organic, all natural and exotic ingredients, to produce only the highest quality soap.  While the bar sizes may be uneven, and the edges a bit rough, it is through these small imperfections that you can be assured of our homemade quality.  Our goal is to put our customers needs first.  If you have any questions or comments about our soaps we’d love to hear from you.
