Welcome to Riverside Soaps!

Our goal is to minimize our impact on the environment and provide customers with excellent natural, and nearly-natural, vegetarian and vegan soap, bath, and body products. WE STRIVE FOR TRANSPARENCY and list all our ingredients.

We use recyclable/reusable/compostable materials as much as we can in an effort to keep our rivers clean!

Beginners Soaping Class

For Safety purposes there is a limit of 4 persons for this class. Please keep your confirmation email to bring to your class.

In this class, we will be making a simple log soap with a swirl of colors and using fragrance oils, and discussing how how to use lye with milk, the benefits and drawbacks to using natural and artificial colorants and fragrances, the impact of choosing your oils on the environment, and the best sources to buy your ingredients. 

Please wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, and clean indoor shoes. Safety glasses and gloves will be provided for you to use and keep. Please bring your own duotang or binder just to keep a few handouts if you wish, and few pieces of paper should you wish to take notes. I will supply all ingredients. If you are allergic to any essential oils please let me know ahead of time and I will find another oil to use.

Select the date of your class and buy tickets here.


Riverside Soaps will be at the Naven Market under the dome on August 23, September 27, and October 25 for you to see our entire selection of soaps, bath bombs, sugar scrubs, natural deodorants, and more! This is your chance to see and smell everything in person! Hope to see you there!
