About

The story about how our business started.

Take a kid with a rare genetic disorder from an entrepreneurial family, who likes scents and textures and working with his hands, and introduce him to a maker of artisan soaps and you get Alan’s Artisan Soap Co.

Alan was born with the rare Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects many parts of the body. Having skin sensitive to textures and artificial ingredients made finding the right balance of natural ingredients in an affordable quality soap a challenge. An artisan soap maker of more than 35 years sat down with us to develop soaps of 100% natural ingredients and fragrance oils. Our soaps are quick to lather, soft to the touch, and rinse away clean leaving only the light scent of natural fragrances.

Meet Alan

Hi! I’m Alan. I personally guarantee that our soaps are made in small batches using 100% all natural ingredients. Each scent and characteristic has been approved by me.

Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

Dr. Seuss

Each soap is stamped and packaged by hand with a story from Alan about each fragrance, while his mom and Nana help him with the gift baskets. He hopes to one day employ other people with special needs to join him in packaging even more soap.

Alan’s Artisan Soap Co. donates to organizations helping children with special needs.
