Violet Crown Soap Company is a family owned business. I hand-craft our products in our home in Austin, Texas.
I love figuring out which ingredients blend to make a batch of soap. Sometimes the idea for a soap will come full blown; other times I spend hours deliberating over a detail. When that happens, I consult the research staff - my sisters, my sons, or my friends. One of them always has the answer.
It is such a kick to take a big pot of oils and butters, stir in lye and water and watch as it begins its transformation into soap. No matter how many times I do it, I'm like a kid at Christmas when it's time to unmold and cut each batch - I can hardly wait!
Violet Crown soaps and lotions are made with vegetable oils - no animal or petroleum products. Many of our soaps use only essential oils. I do use fragrance oils in some soaps, because they just plain smell good! I label each product with the ingredients so you'll know what went into it before you put it on your skin.

If there's a particular blend or fragrance you're interested in, please let me know. I love to experiment, and I'm always interested in stirring up something new.
Thanks for your interest in Violet Crown Soap Company. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy making them for you.
