About Our Products

At River City Soapworks, most of our handcrafted artisan soaps may be classified as either luxury or novelty soaps. Our luxury soaps are available by the bar and are made with 100% pure moisturizing oils and rich, creamy butters. Our luxury soaps are handmade via a time-honored soapmaking process dating back to circa 2000B.C. Known as cold-process soap making, pure oils and moisturizing butters are saponified (turned into soap) through a chemical process and then allowed to cure for 4-6 weeks to harden and reach maximum quality. Many of our luxury soaps are made from oils and butters including olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, sustainable palm oil, rice bran oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, and more.

In addition to luxury soap bars, River City Soapworks also offers a variety of skin-nourishing bath and body products including body scrubs, body butters, and bath bombs. Our specially formulated handcrafted soaps and bath and body products are sure to indulge your skin and delight your senses.

Looking for a unique gift idea? We are also pleased to offer a wide variety of novelty soaps for all ages and occasions. Our novelty soap products are fun, whimsical soaps handcrafted in a wide variety of themes including holidays, special occasions, children's themes, faux food, soaps with embedded toys, and many, many more! Many of our novelty soap products are handcrafted via a process known as glycerin melt and pour. In this soapcrafting method, a solid glycerin soap base is slowly melted to a liquid state. After fragrance and colorant are added, the liquid soap is then poured into a mold or hand sculpted into a unique design. Our novelty soaps make perfect gifts, party favors, or a decorative sinkside accessory.

In addition to superior handcrafted soaps, River City Soapworks carries an extensive line of quality soapmaking supplies. We carry everything a soapmaker needs to handcraft both cold process and glycerin melt and pour soap products. As an authroized Crafters Choice® distributor, you can rest assured that River City Soapworks only carries high quality products that have been specially formulated with cosmetic and food approved ingredients. Whether you are looking for fixed oils and butters, melt and pour soap bases or fragrance oils, River City Soapworks has your soapmaking needs covered.
