A CONCEPT COMES ALIVE
The idea for San Saba Soap Company grew out of our own personal appreciation of luxury and natural bath products. Through studying the ancient cold process soap making method, soap maker and owner Marcus Holley, who is also a professional wine maker, decided it was the best way to achieve the quality of bar we could be proud of. We wanted to handcraft an all natural, luxury soap line for men and women using local Texas agricultural products in our soap base. Many soap companies use artificial fragrances, but we chose fine distilled essential oils from Brazil to scent our bars and add important skin benefits.
OUR SOAP MAKING METHOD
We use the traditional cold process soap making method, as opposed to the “melt and pour” soaps you see in such abundance. Cold process is the art of mixing fixed oils with an alkali, creating a chemical reaction called saponification. The introduction of additional moisturizers, multiple essential oils and natural exfoliants can be quite complex, especially in the initial stage of development and formulation. We think San Saba Soap Company excels in this delicate marriage of art and science thanks to our soap maker’s education and experience as a commercial wine maker. We do not use artificial fragrance oils or artificial hardeners. We see ourselves as an artisanal lifestyle brand, and so we put a lot of our personality into the soaps.
QUALITY FROM START TO FINISH
Even though our original idea was to create small-batches, we remained confident that our soaps would be great! So we made the financial investment into the best soap making ingredients and equipment we could source including our laboratory grade digital scales for fine measurements, large commercial bar slicer, and all stainless steel mixing equipment, forms and curing station. Then we took time to focus on the quality of the oils and fragrance combinations. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.” Our desire to create a natural, luxury bath soap with minimal environmental impact extends to our beautiful packaging design, created by Leanne Holley, Director of sales, graphic artist, and mother of four little Holleys.
