Why Salt & Butter?

3 words...

simple ~ thoughtful ~ intentional



SIMPLE

Simple...we need to feed our skin as much as we need to feed our bodies. We strive to nourish ourselves from the inside...but tend to forget about just how simple it is to do something incredible for our overexposed and daily embattled epidermis.


THOUGHTFUL

Our ingredient choices are fresh, naturally nourishing & moisturizing. Gorgeous butters and rich oils packed full of powerful antioxidants, essential fatty acids, along with incredible additions such as superfood boosts naturally carrying critical enzymes, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, and serious Vitamins just to start...all thoughtfully chosen with the sole intent to #feedyourskin. Just please... #donteatthesoap.


INTENTIONAL

My journey began as a child with an auto-immune disorder which originally attacked and inflamed my skin. Just over a dozen years ago, it morphed into attacking my joints as well. It was then I buckled down and became more proactive about my own care...starting with my skin.

 

The negative response my skin had to most commercially available skincare products limited me to either extraordinarily priced products or a very narrow selection of mundane basics. But I still wanted the fun and delicious sparkle that nourished my skin...without breaking the bank! So the intention began.

 

I soon discovered this journey was actually a creative outlet waiting to happen. It would come to be able to feed and nourish my hurting skin, but my creative soul as well. Working with the massive variety of natural components to discover the combinations which best serve up their nutrition, and then make it a complete sensory experience? There's absolute magic in that.

 

Today, Salt & Butter Soap Kitchen is here to help do the same for you.

Our mission is to help you feed your skin...and uplift your heart in the process. Bring a smile to your face as you enjoy the way your skin feels, and far more importantly...the way you feel in your skin.

Artisan soaps and an array of other bath, body, and cosmetic products. Bug-off products, jewelweed infused products, beard care, eyelash serum, lotions, balms, bath bombs, hand-poured candles and melts, and more all made using personal formulations.

View Full Description

I am a small business that personally formulates all of the products I produce along with producing them myself! I take pride in what I do and what products I put out. I have been making soap and many of these products for over 7 years, but was previously under the name of "Sarah's Soaps and Such". While that name was quite special to me, after hard deliberation I decided to change to something more unique that also encompassed the sass that many of my friends, family, and customers love, so "All That And A Bar Of Soap" was born. With the new name came a world of new opportunities and I am hoping to launch my website by the end of June 2022 and be on a few local store shelves by September 2022. I am hoping to expand to wholesale as well! I currently offer gift sets for all occasions, custom ordered soaps (or other products), and most definitely do offer shipping, of course.


A full list of products my shop offers, with a * to denote all-natural:

Soap (*can be under certain circumstances with scent choice and color choice)

Bath bombs

Beard balm (*can be based on scent choice)

Beard oil (*can be based on scent choice)

Body balm*

Bug-off spray*

Bug-off lotion

Bug-off candle

Candles - a blend of soy, coconut, and beeswax

Cream conditioner (pair with shampoo!)

Dandelion balm*

Eyelash serum*

Korean Herbal Soaps, Oils, BathAids and more. Behold, Sensitive Skin. No Preservatives, Sulfates, Artificial/synthetic Scents/Colors. Certified Herbs by the Korean Medicine Herbal Association. Premium Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil Massaging Soaps.

View Full Description

We wanted to make your Skincare journey ‘Cool’.
 

Sensitive skin is caused from the harshest ingredients from unknown places and factories. Over processing products and preservatives contain the risk of damaging the natural skin immunity we all should have since birth. We want to cleanse you from all the negative ingredients you have been soaking up on your skin.
 

Ingredients First then Soap and Oil. That's all we need in our skincare.
We are a community of people who believe in the simplest skincare possible. It is quite hard to find the simplest ingredients that were certified and regulated by the 'real' people.

We purchase our ingredients from certified and verified suppliers who also believe in the same values as we practice.


Packaging is important in all beauty and being aesthetic is our agenda too.
When we create our packaging and shipping boxes, we also consider the longevity of our product in the bottle or wrapper, however, we also deeply consider the recyclability, sustainability of the materials. Waterproof labels consume tremendous amount of plastic and do not biodegrade although it’s convenient and has shiny finish. That’s why we choose to use reusable glass bottles, thermal labels and hanji mulberry papers. To us, making it look simple using the simplest materials is as important as manufacturing simple products with the simplest ingredients. It reduces non-recyclable waste and by-products.

 

We are based in ‘Korean’ traditional herbalism.
Korean herbalism is as old as 5000+ years since their folktales mythology 단군신화 “Bear and Tiger” story; The very first woman of Korea was a bear who consumed a lot of ‘mugwort(쑥)’ and garlic to become a human female. (Fun fact indeed, you can see how old mugwort has been there for Koreans which is one of our signature ingredients) Not only the oriental medicine practitioners use various herbs to naturally fight against diseases and improve health of their patients but also the general Korean population are naturally educated on how to practically use and incorporate herbs in their everyday lives. We want to introduce that heritage and share that with the world. 

Han-bang skincare is skincare made with traditional methodology of Korean Herbal Medicine derived and practiced from more than 5000+ years ago as mentioned above. In South Korea, Herbal Medicine Medical doctors go through the same training if not more, than Western Medicine Medical doctors and are recognized and honored at the same level with Medical Doctors.

Why do we mainly use South Korean herbs? Because South Korea has the most strict standards by the government, public and private associations approving herbal products because the medical grade herbs are being used by Korean Herbal Medicine Medical Doctors to prescribe to treat patients with real diseases like cancers and diabetes.

There are millions of women who moved from using commercial, mass produced skincare lines to handmade, small batch, indie skincare products. Women in global market are changing. Simply put, they lost interest in buying from companies that make and produce their products outside the country, spend massive amounts of money in advertising which creates major quality dip, using machineries and automations to deliver, what we would like to call, Phantom products covered in miraculous looks and fancy packaging and marketing.

We want you to know the truth in using the simplest ingredients to recover from so called ‘the Korean 10 step skincare routine’  
The founder Bo Kim, a Korean immigrant in the US discovered that having less wrinkles or less acne do not depend on the complex routine that is being popularized. After her longest fight with various skin problems such as adult acne, she decided that she took her own route of skincare: free-of preservatives, fresh ingredients, zero synthetic sulfates and fragrance. The simplest, yet, the finest ingredients are all you need to transition into recovery from ‘Preservative-skin’ AKA 방부제 피부 in Korean.

We believe in these 5 Steps for good skincare routine.
Stress-free, practice mindfulness to unclog your worries off your mind and have positive thoughts
Cleanse well with gentle motion: Light Alkaline soaps can help cleansing the makeup residue off your face.
Use high quality oils to lock in the moisture and be patient in restoring your skin’s water and oil balance naturally instead of liquid base lotions, creams and serums which likely to contain preservatives and emulsifiers.
Avoid frequent exfoliation of skin.
3 Ps : Patience. Persistence. Proficiency. Be patient with getting the results (our skin immunity needs at least 6 months to get rebuilt), Be persistent with the regimen you chose and follow through, be proficient with your own skincare (knowledge is indeed power.)
We are a cool community focusing on manufacturing the most simplest, yet the finest products with the freshest ingredients from ethical suppliers. Welcome to our Cool Community!

Hand Crafted Soap and Soap Butter Pre made or Custom made; You Are Only Limited by Your Own Imagination

View Full Description

By utilizing premium soap bases, high quality essential & fragrance oils, and over 100 molds: I am able to create one-of-a-kind soap gifts and/or promotions; as well as highly desirable soaps that are repeatable.

Over twenty years ago, almost overnight, I had to suddenly change using chemical products to as natural as possible. Key item to change was fragrance. I now use such high quality products, that I do not have a negative reaction.

I have set up my soap company, that an individual can pick and choose from my inventory, and with my help, create solid soap or soap butters as unique as the individual making the choices.
