From the aptly named Shore Soap Company's front door, the syncopated percussion of the coastline can be heard as it ebbs and flows just a block away. But the front door isn't the only part of the company that's connected to the sea?all of the handcrafted soaps are, too. That's because artisan soap makers combine natural ingredients such as shea butter, olive oil, and fragrant herbs with sea salt to create a long-lasting, purifying bar. Though bar soap is Shore Soap Company's forte, the storefront also stocks sugar scrubs, body butter, and even solid perfumes that helped it earn a Best of Rhode Island 2013 badge from Rhode Island Monthly. Not only is Shore Soap Company committed to making high-quality handcrafted products, it has pledged 1% of all profits to Save the Bay, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to protecting Narragansett Bay.
