From film production to graphic & web design, we love the emotional response that excellent art brings. We’re expensive. But we’re worth it because we can show you the money.

When we founded the Men’s Soap Shop in a small apartment in Boston, Massachusetts, a smooth gentleman had limited choices for all-natural body-care products. We decided to change that. Today we brew, pour, cut, and cure our products in a nineteenth-century factory building, a daily reminder of the role of good, old-fashioned artisanship in our business. Painstakingly handcrafted in small batches from simple, all-natural ingredients, our products represent a resurgence in traditional masculine grooming rituals.
