Wild Mountain Soap Company


Handmade Soaps, Lotions, and much more...


Instead of leaving the glycerin in the  soap, during their manufacturing process, companies extract the glycerin and replace it with detergents and chemicals.  Then they process the glycerin into other products, such as expensive  creams and lotions. Have you ever felt the need to apply a cream or  lotion after bathing so your skin will feel soft and not tight and dry?  This is the reason why. We have had several customers tell us they have  stopped using lotion after using our soap.
All of our soaps are made using natural ingredients,  no detergents, chemical fillers or preservatives, and retains all of  the natural glycerin.  Natural is always better than synthetic. 

Once you bathe with natural handmade soap, you will never want to use a commercial soap again! You can order online.  Call 304-574-1800 for more information and check out the website.
