Nature & LoveInspired by Nature and our Gardens, we have created a unique line of soaps and skin care products that are good for your skin and good for the planet. We use food-grade oils, premium essential oils, natural aromatics and botanicals. Our soaps are free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and other harsh foaming chemicals.
Hand-craftedAll of our products are hand-crafted in small batches – we individually cut by hand all soaps and use minimal, recyclable packaging. Natural variations in each bar add to their uniqueness, authenticity and beauty.
Natural & HealthyWe've come a long way in knowing which oils are better to use on our skins and the benefits from the vitamins and essential fatty acids found in certain oils. The organically grown herbs and the essential oils used in our soaps add therapeutic and aromatic value. Summit Hill Soaps, all natural, wholesome, and organically sound, are a treat to use.

We make from scratch relatively small batches of soap so we can ensure the quality and integrity of our products.
There might be variation in the color of our batches, which is part of their charm and authenticity. There is a three week curing time after our soaps are made.
Occasionally we run out of a certain soap and have to fill an order later or we can substitute. The choice is yours!
Our overall goal is to make for you a truly healthful handmade soap-free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and other harsh foaming chemicals.
To enhance and enrich our soaps, in each bar we add coconut cream, castor oil, glycerin, goats milk, shea butter and vitamin E.
To select bars we add Kansas Honey, kukui oil, steel cut oatmeal, thick cows cream, ground almonds to mention just a few of our additional ingredients.
We also use clays (red, white china clay, morracan clay, green clay) for their color, scents and cleansing abilities.
