BEST Featured Artist - Swan Mountain Soaps

Let me begin by telling you that I love skin products.  Soaps and lotions are not an extravagance, they are a necessity!  So when I had the opportunity to visit Swan Mountain Soaps I fell in love.  Swan, AKA Christine, Mike and their 5 children are the faces behind the products.  Their soap-making is truly a family affair.  They use the birch and spruce trees, the dandelion and the wild roses that grow around them.  Their garden provides chamomile, chickweed and calundula and more.  Swan does all of the formulating and soapmaking.  Everyone helps with planting, gathering, and much more.  Living in Alaska has provided them with the inspiration for making their products and they take great pride in creating products that are natural, contain no detergents, fillers or lather boosters, no formaldehyde, and no parabens - just naturally-good, skin-loving ingredients like cocoa butter, shea butter and olive oil. And an occasional beer. I hope you enjoy what I show you here, and that you will check out Swan Mountain Soaps for yourself.
