We really are the Smith Family! We’re a family-owned and family-run business, and we take great pride in the quality of our products. 

Our Story

We’ve been making soap for 20 years (wow, how time flies)! We started out in our kitchen and garage, and as demand grew, we reclaimed our house and moved all the soap-making to the Soapworks, here in the Temecula-Murrieta valley in Southern California. 

We use Olive Oil as the main ingredient in our products, because we truly believe in its beneficial properties for body care.

We get our Olive Oil from a local olive grower, because there is nothing like knowing where your ingredients come from.

The wonderful people working with us are either family, or are like family to us. Murrieta is still a small town at heart, and we love the connections we have with the people here.

We are crazy about handcrafted soaps, and are so thankful that we can do what we love for a living. We love the way it smells, the way it feels on your skin, the fact that it's not full of extra junk, and the slower pace and attention to detail required by the traditional process of making it.

At this moment, we have 15 bars of soap in the shower—it’s hard to pick a favorite.

It makes our day to hear from people who have had skin issues for years, and have just tried our soap, and finally found relief.

There’s always work to do at the Soapworks, so if we don’t answer the phone when you call, just leave a message and we'll get back to you right away; we're around here somewhere!
