We only test our products on Humans, NOT Animals (although some consider us animals). Our products may contain Tree Nut Oils & Natural Botanicals. All of our products are Phthalate Free. If you have allergies, consult with your physician before testing on yourself or on your friend...because they may have allergies also.

All of our Beard & Body Bars are handcrafted and poured in small batches to ensure freshness. This also means that no single product will ever be identical to another. Variations in color, design and weight are true to handcrafted products.

To enjoy your Handcrafted Bar Soap as long as possible, keep out of direct contact with water when not in use. Well draining soap dishes or the metal bbq grate from your grill are a great place to store them! This allows the Soap Bar to dry between uses and helps to prolong the life of your soap!


Grab this Handcrafted Body Soap and show it who's in charge.  Scrub the imperfections from your body and purify your facial fur!

Cold Start is Best Start

Recommended by Dan C. Bearded, this stuff is ridiculous. Best shower I've had in 10 years, easily. Get it. Use it.

10 years in the making to a great shower! We're glad Dan recommended you to try Cold Start! We truly appreciate your support!

Fantastic soap

fantastic full stripping beard wash. Smells wonderful, and makes your beard sparkly clean. Perfect for when you need a fully stripping wash to start your beard fresh again. Only should be used on the beard once a week, twice at the most. Not a daily wash. But for that use, it is fantastic. It’s great soap for any other traditional use as well

We’re glad you’re enjoying our handcrafted soaps Jonah! We’re honored you allow us to clean the beard ‍♂️

Favorite scent so far!

Smells amazing! Wish I got the liquid wash the same scent. Cleaned very well and been a amazing product so far!

Nothing beats Cold start in the shower! We designed our handcrafted soaps to be hard on the germs but gentle on the skin! We’re glad you’re enjoying it Dominic! We appreciate you!

Customer minded company

Soap is awesome(love all the cold start products)
But I wanted to talk about customer service. This company is awesome with customer service. Order was supposed to show up it didn't, I send an email early evening at the start of the weekend so I figured wont hear anything till Monday. I WAS WRONG! got an email within couple hours stating they will look into. Well weekend wasn't even over and got an email stating ups contact could not find package. There was no hesitation they let me know they refilled my order and are sending it right out. Very impressive as I know they are not a billion dollar company and things like this hurt bottom line but they proved bottom line is awesome but a happy customer is far more important.
Thank You for being a very impressive small business

Smells fresh and clean!

Amazing stuff, fresh and clean feeling! Use once a week, to reset your beard!

Thanks Mike! I agree I use it once or twice a week for a little more of a deep cleaning myself! We appreciate you!
