Saipua's soaps transform a shower to spa-like moment—create a ritual of this everyday task:

 

Cedarwood: Saipua's most recent soap, with a grounding aroma of warm and woody cedar wood. The wood was burned by the Greeks and Romans to perfume the air, to promote vitality and soothe the mind. Contains saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor, with shea butter and essential oils.

 

Goat Milk Soap with Basil: A creamy, soothing soap suitable for face or body blended with basil essential oil; peppery and sweet with notes of anise. Contains saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor, with shea butter, goat milk, and essential oils.

 

Rose Geranium: An intoxicating and uplifting floral essential oil blend focusing on rose geranium. Contains saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor, with shea butter and essential oils.

 

Saltwater: An essential oil blend creates a scent reminiscent of the ocean. Made with salt and nori. Contrary to popular belief this is not an exfoliating soap; though the salt conditions the water as you shower and creates a creamy and unique lather. Contains saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor, with shea butter, salt, nori, and essential oils.

 

Vetiver: French green clay works in this soap to gently draw out impurities and tighten the pores. A good facial soap for those with sensitive and oily skin. The essential oil blend focuses on vetiver, a smoky scent, rounded out by the addition of citrus.  Contains saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor, with shea butter, french green clay, and essential oils.

 

ABOUT: Saipua matriarch, Susan Ryhanen began making soap as a hobby in 1999 in her basement using olive oil from the grocery store and a shoebox as a mold. The hobby grew into a small business called Creekside Soaps which sold soap as well as custom engineered soap-making supplies, designed by Susan's husband Pentti.

In 2004 Susan’s daughter Sarah and her partner Eric suggested a re-branding of the soap - and SAIPUA (derived from the Finnish word for soap ‘saippua’ and a nod to Pentti’s heritage) was formed. For almost two decades, soap has served as a backbone for the myriad endeavors at SAIPUA and Worlds End Farm.
