French Country Soaps is a soap company from Ottawa (Stittsville), Ontario, Canada. We specialize in beautiful handmade designer vegetable glycerin soaps. We take pride in the quality & craftsmanship of our products and we hope you will love using our soap as much as we love making it.

We create small batches of luxurious natural soaps. There are never two alike. We have done research in therapeutic ingredients to help benefit the skin.

Our soaps are formulated with pure essential oils, distinctive blends of fragrances, and some of the best ingredients that Mother Nature has to offer, such as shea butter, mango butter, jojoba oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, coconut oil and grape seed oil. Our soaps will never be mass produced, and each and every bar is packaged and tagged by hand.  We are very proud of the fact that our soaps are therapeutic, beautifully fragranced, decorative and above all, personalized for every body.

Welcome to “French Country Soaps”

Why use Handmade Soap?

Why should you use handmade soap? Have you ever taken the time to look at the ingredient list of your favourite commercial bar of soap? It's full of chemicals, detergents and preservatives. Most of them aren't truly soap. Which is why they are labelled as beauty bars, cleansing bars etc.

The biggest difference between handmade soap and commercial soap is glycerin. Glycerin is the natural byproduct of the saponification process. Commercial soaps remove the glycerin, and sell it to cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies!

Handmade soap is unaltered, leaving all that skin-loving glycerin in the soap. Glycerin is a humectant which means it draws moisture into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. French Country Soap uses only the finest ingredients, without the addition of chemicals. For all French Country Soaps, we use luxury oils and butters which are also used in aromatherapy.

In your words...
"I have placed two orders with French Country Soaps and there will be plenty more including referring them to my friends and family. The first time I placed an order was about 7 months ago and was extremely satisfied with the speed and simplicity of the transaction and delivery. Top notch customer service. Just when I didn't think it could get better I was blown away the second time. I ordered 20 bars of soap one afternoon and within an hour, my order was confirmed since everything was in stock. The person I spoke to was extremely helpful and courteous. I explained that even though I live in Ottawa, I would rather have them shipped as quickly as possible since I was getting ready to deploy overseas and just didn't have the time to go to the other end of the city. All I can say is "Wow!" because the next day, just after noon my order was at my front door! This is why I buy local and support the smaller guys. Customer for life."
