My name is Sue Lorenz and I founded Thornapple Ridge Soaps in 2005 out of my passion for creating natural soaps and body care products. We are a small family-based specialty bath and body company located in Menomonee Falls, WI.
Thornapple Ridge Soaps are handcrafted using the traditional cold process method in small batches of 16 bars at a time. We use only pure vegetable-based oils and natural plant-based additives to create the best bar of soap to pamper your skin. The process we use to create these bars retains all the glycerin and natural moisturizers, unlike commercially-produced bars which are made with detergents and petroleum based chemicals. We believe that our bars should be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional, and consider each one a little work of art. Each hand-cut bar weighs approximately 5 oz. and is cured for 4 to 6 weeks before it is ready to use. This ensures that your soap is hard, long-lasting and milder than any store bought soap.
We also have created a line of body lotions, liquid soaps, creams, herbal salves, lip balms and other bathing luxuries such as salts and scrubs. I personally make each item for our customers, purposely keeping our stock low so that our customers always receive the freshest products possible. We hope you enjoy using our products as much as we enjoy creating them!
We are a proud member of Something Special from Wisconsin™ , a trademarked program administered by the Division of Agricultural Development at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection since 1983. SSFW certification ensures that our products are unique and of the highest quality, making them perfect for gift-giving and other special occasions. We are very proud our natural handcrafted products and believe that you will agree they are the finest available for the price. We invite you to give them a try, and discover how wonderful your skin can feel. Treat yourself or someone you love to the benefits of handmade soaps, lotions and bath products!
