Since 1997, Cream City Soap Company has been creating aromatherapy products in Milwaukee. Our raw materials are fresh, and we make small batches by hand, to ensure the best quality. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you love our products!
Our Soap: Our soap is vegan! We use olive, coconut and soybean oils to make our soap from scratch. Your skin will feel soft and healthy, never dried out.
Scents: Our products are scented with expensive essential oils. Essential oils are the compounds inside a plant's cells that give the plant its scent. Tons of plant matter are collected by large distilleries and the oils are then extracted. Some essential oils are light and act almost like an alcohol, and evaporate very quickly into the air. Some are dark, almost black, and are thick and sticky like a resin. These do not evaporate quickly.
Artificial fragrances are never used in our products.
Colors: Only natural colors are used, such as flower buds, ground spices and herbs, earth pigments and coca powder.

Preservatives: The use of preservatives is avoided if possible. That is why many items are sold in a dry form. However, if a product contains water, or could acquire water into during normal use, preservatives must be used. Brain Perry from Microbiology Today writes, "Organisms commonly isolated from poorly preserved water-based products include Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Staphylococcus and Bacillus species, Pseudomonas, including P. aeruginosa, Burkholderia cepacia, Penicillium and Candida albicans." Those are no fun.
As of today, there exist no natural preservatives. Some say that grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is a natural preservative, but it has been shown that GSE has no natural preservation powers whatsoever. Studies have proven that the antimicrobial effects are derived from a preservative added while manufacturing GSE. Check my "Interesting Articles" link to read more about this.
