Though they're aided by modern saponification science, Wild Prairie Soap Company's skilled artisans hearken to centuries-old techniques as they handcraft batches of natural soap within their in-store soaperie. They hand-cut and cure each bar before nestling it onto a clean white table or chic antique armoire. The high-end soaps share the spotlight with towers of body polishes and lotions infused with shea butter for silky-smooth secret handshakes.
The soap-makers infuse their blends with 50 per cent olive oil and pure essential oils to gently condition and clean every type of skin without unwanted fillers or animal byproducts. Dozens of varieties range from rosehip and grapefruit to man-centric brew bars, which are blended with dark irish stout and organic hops to elicit a subtle scent, thick lather, and even thicker five o'clock shadow.
