Handcrafted olive oil soap produced in small batches by artist and floral designer Sarah Ryhanen on a farm in Upstate New York. All soaps contain saponified oils of olive, coconut, castor oil, shea butter, and essential oils. 6oz bar of soap.
Bergamot - A spice blend of bergamot essential oil with clary sage and black pepper oils.
Cedarwood - A take on an all-time classic scent that creates a grounding aroma of warm and woody cedar wood. The benefits of cedar wood oil have been used for centuries to promote vitality and soothe the mind.
Lavender Oatmeal - A classic combination of lavender essential oil and ground oats. Mild and exfoliating soap that is terrific for the face or body.
Rose Geranium - An intoxicating and uplifting floral essential oil blend.
Sunflower with Calendula (Unscented, no essential oils) - Unscented soap for those who may be sensitive to essential oils. Contains sunflower oils and calendula petals that create a softer soap that's very moisturizing.
Vetiver with French Clay - French green clay works in this soap to gently draw out impurities and tighten the pores. A good facial soap for those with sensitive and oily skin. The essential oil blend focuses on vetiver, a smoky scent, rounded out by the addition of citrus.
Black Soap with Charcoal and Patchouli - Activated charcoal draws out oils from the skin, making this an excellent complexion soap. Scented with an earthy blend of patchouli and lime essential oil.
Saipua began in 2006 in a Brooklyn studio devoted to the dual crafts of flower arranging and soap-making (Saipua is derived from the word for "soap" in Finnish, a nod to founder Sarah Ryhanen's husband's heritage). Ryhanen is an artist and educator who now creates at The Farm at World's End, a residency farm founded in 2011, which has become the headquarters of the Saipua team. The soaps are still mixed and poured by Susan herself, cut by her husband Pentti, and wrapped and packed by members of the World's End Community.
