Have you ever attempted to read the litany of ingredients located on the back of most store-bought lotion bottles? Exactly. Most of the terms require a PhD in chemistry.
Lucky for all of us, that’s not the case with our hand and body lotions. Made right here in West Virginia, we use a combination of olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, and glycerin to make this body-quenching concoction. Yes, natural… and easy to spell! Add a drop or two of essential oils, and you have your favorite scent infused right into every dollop.
And best of all, no need to hang around in your birthday suit waiting to shake that just-coated-myself-with-something-greasy-but-it-must-be-good-for-me feeling. This lotion absorbs quickly, leaving you soft and hydrated. So long, dry skin!
You might be wondering how we got our start. Simple, really. Soap. Our first batch, “relax,” was a blend of vanilla, lavender, and other spices. Despite the minor discussion on which of us would test it first, the difference in skin texture and softness after one visit to the shower was immediate. It sealed our fate -- going back to off-the-shelf-mass-produced soap was not an option. Within two short years, our single scent has grown to more than 50. In many instances, our customers have shared their “scented” memories with us – allowing us to create unique blends of which many are Wild Mountain best-sellers. So, yes, we might have been born from the hills of West Virginia where the pace of life is just a little slower, but not for Wild Mountain Soap Company. What began as a kitchen-table business outgrew the kitchen long ago. We invite you to experience first-hand the benefits of our natural soaps and other products -- the way it should be made – with simple ingredients, by our hands. ~Phillip and Mary… two West Virginia artisans.
