Our Story

Summer House Soaps was born on Cape Cod, where the sea, sand dunes, and fresh salt air are a daily inspiration. 

I was at home with two small kids, taking a break from a career as a graphic designer, when I became passionately involved with making soaps and body care products. I loved the scents and textures, the science and the artistry. I loved that the final product was both practical and luxuriously sensual. 

The production has long since moved out of the kitchen, and what started as a solo obsession has turned into a grand collaboration of quirky, funny, creative people. The scale of our production has increased a lot, but we still make our soaps, lotions, balms, and salts by hand in small batches, from fine natural ingredients. 

We love what we do, and we're glad you're here. Welcome!
