Lisa Smith and Kraig Bruer have been making soap by hand for their family and friends for more than 15 years and launched Cedar Mountain Soaps on Etsy in 2020. From the beginning, they set out to make a gentle, cold process soap featuring all-natural ingredients and the end result has anecdotally improved skin conditions. Lisa and Kraig’s soap is made in small batches and uses ingredients garnered from our small urban farm, including activated charcoal made from our own apple and maple trees.
