Organic Handmade Soap with a Cause

Poppy Soap Media Kit

POPPY SOAP CO.

Lindy LaRoche is a master soap maker, proud mama and founder of Poppy Soap Co. A few short years ago, Lindy was climbing the corporate ladder – then her son was born. As many moms can relate, life as she knew it changed forever. Instead of endless workdays and overnight travel, Lindy wanted to be home with her son, leading by example.

Inspired by a desire to follow her dreams so her son knew he could follow his, Lindy left the corporate world. She knew she wanted to create an organic soap line with the power to change lives. What began as a humble idea taking root in Lindy’s garage has grown into an eco-friendly microbusiness called Poppy Soap Co.

Located near San Luis Obispo, California, Poppy Soap Co. creates quality, sustainable organic soaps, and gives back to local communities through a unique program called “Bar for Bar.” For every bar of soap purchased online or in stores, Poppy Soap Co. donates a bar to a women’s shelter. To date, the company has donated more than 3,000 bars to shelters across the country.

TESTIMONIALS

Check out what our customers are saying:

Neem Tea Tree Organic Soap

My husband has had psoriasis since he was a teenager. He's used different types of soaps/shampoos, etc. trying to help his skin from feeling so itchy & irritated. He has had just ok luck but after the first use of your Neem Tea Tree soap, he was so excited that his skin felt so moisturized, smooth, and calm he was ecstatic. I could tell a difference right away when I rubbed his arm and couldn't believe how smooth & soft his skin was. I know we won't be buying anything other than your Neem Tea Tree soap for him, and for me as well!"

~Cindy M. San Luis Obispo, CA

Orange Patchouli Walnut Organic Soap

The smell just makes me feel happy and bright! I tend to get dried out by regular soaps and your's makes my skin soft, no drying! I do tend to have dry skin, so I don't usually use soap other than for the stinky areas, but with your soap I can use it all over! I find using your soaps worry-free, I know they are made with organic and pure ingredients and that feels great!" 

~Kia C. Clovis, CA

 

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Poppy Soap! It feels and smells amazing, and leaves your skin feeling and smelling amazing! I especially love the soaps with some texture - such as oatmeal or poppyseeds - they add an invigorating extra to your shower that is absolutely addictive! Best of all, the soaps are made with organic ingredients, so you know you're taking good care of yourself and the earth at the same time. On top of that, for every bar purchased, a bar is donated to a shelter - what an amazing business philosphy!
Where else can you find a product that lets you spoil yourself, take care of the environment, and help others all at the same time!?! Love these soaps!"

~Rebekah O. Iowa City, IA

 

This soap is amazing. It looks good enough to eat, smells enticing - and most importantly ... it lathers in fine, fine, fine bubbles....so the foam is velvety and smooth. My skin feels like it's being hugged when I use this :-), it amazes me every time. Thank you very much for a wonderful way to spoil myself!"

~Dr. Ainslie Y. NY, NY
