Saipua was founded by Sarah Ryhanen and her cohorts in her Brooklyn studio in 2006, but has since moved to Worlds End, a 107 acre communal homestead farm west of Albany, Ny on ancestral Mohawk land. Every soap is poured and cut by hand at the farm, and infused with completely natural ingredients often grown right on their land.
The base for each soap contains saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor, along with shea butter, french green clay, and essential oils. Truly luxurious, these beautifully made soaps will both cleanse and nourish your skin while delivering a wonderful aromatic experience for your senses. We are currently carrying a variety of scents, including:
Bergamont-- A spicy blend of bergamot essential oil with the addition of clary sage and black pepper essential oils.
Clary Sage With Dill-- The scent of this soap is clean, earthy, and bright. It's worth mentioning that smelling clary sage essential oil is known to induce euphoria.
Coffee Mint Soap-- Made with coffee grounds and peppermint essential oil, this is a great soap for removing the smell of garlic or onions from your hands next to the kitchen sink, though many people like this invigorating bar for their morning shower.
Goat Milk With Basil-- A creamy, soothing soap suitable for face or body, blended with basil essential oil. Peppery and sweet, with notes of anise.
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.
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.
