Soap Distillery

Discouraged by the lack of diversity among scented soaps at local health stores, Danielle Martin set out to create a sustainable and inventive alternative. While sipping an Old Fashioned, Danielle came up with the idea for unique cocktail-inspired soaps that both smell and feel delightful. Thus began the adventure, starting with scent experimentation out of Danielle's apartment and eventually creating Soap Distillery. From soaps to body oils and salt soaks, Soap Distillery takes care of all your body love needs!

In terms of size, Danielle has managed to keep the company small, but her vision's big! Soap Distillery has a mighty team of soap creators and a plethora of growing skin care inventions. Each soap bar is hand cut and handmade with love for people and the planet. Since its founding in 2012, there is truly nothing they can't do short of incredible! It doesn't hurt that the business is black-owned and eco-centric.

Not your average soap maker, Soap Distillery creates beautiful care products inspired by drinks like Limoncello, Whiskey, and Mint Mojito to offer a unique body care experience. For anyone looking to give a stellar gift or pamper themselves while sipping on a cocktail (or mocktail), this is the place for you.

Small batches, no hangovers.

Sustainability is no joke at Soap Distillery. Any essential oils the company uses are sustainably sourced, and they refuse to use oils procured unethically and unsustainably, like sandalwood and palo santo. Their soap bars are crafted with saponified oils made with sunflower, almond, and coconut oil and are scented with fragrances like lavender, grapefruit, and rose. And, for your body's and the planet's sake, you can be sure there are no phthalates, nitro musk, artificial detergents, silicone, formaldehyde, or palm oil in the products! Luckily, this doesn't mean foregoing hydrated hands, because these soaps leave you feeling fresh and ready to take on the day. Most of their products are also plastic free, and Soap Distillery aims to use sustainable packaging whenever possible. All soap bars come in paper boxes, and their oils, balms,  face care, and bath salts are available in glass jars or metal tins. These jars can be washed and reused for your own creations, or easily recyclable curbside in most areas. Founded with a big heart and good intentions, Soap Distillery also prioritizes giving back locally by donating to local Chicago organizations like the Broadway Youth Center every year. This ensures the company remains rooted in their core values and in local culture, while also encouraging fun and entrepreneurial creativity.
