BIG News!

New Website Launches

The other big news is our new website. After a few weeks of super-secret work that involved not only a redesign of our logo (you might have noticed - no more awning) but a top-to-bottom re-code of our website, the new Product Body site has launched.

The new site is much cleaner, with easier and faster access to the products you want, when you want them. Every product page also has the requisite (it is 2011 after all) social media links, so please Tweet and "Like" products you think are groovy.

We've also put in a ton of new photography, and every product page has a clickable image with a beautiful full-size photo that comes up for your in-depth perusal. Co-owner Bradford Schmidt did the design and coding, with photography by both Joanna and Bradford (but mostly Joanna - and it's beautiful).

ABSOLUTE SOAP: The Real Alternative

(Find out for yourself with a free bar)

It's time for a REAL alternative to the every-day soaps, shampoos and body washes we all grew up with. For a line of handmade, real, pure soaps to replace the detergent and chemical-laden products on store shelves. Soaps that are reasonably priced, soaps for every need, soaps for everyone: men, women and children.

So Product Body is incredibly proud to announce the launch and immediate availability ofABSOLUTE SOAP, our new line of real, handmade soaps designed to replace, not augment, whatever body cleansing products you're currently using. Prices start at just $4.95 a bar, making it easy to use the real deal everywhere.

Citrus Black PepperThey are all handmade using the traditional cold process method, and are cured for weeks before being mindfully wrapped and delivered to your door. We take great pride in bringing you a product filled with fine oils, butters, milks, grains, clays and other ingredients that feel wonderful on your skin. If we don’t love it, we don’t sell it.

Our launch bars include (aside from the incredibly reasonably-priced Everyday Soap), some of the artisan bars you know and love, face bars, shea butter bars, goat milk bars , and sea salt bars (in other words, something for everyone). We'll be adding shampoo, shave and other special purpose bars soon (they're now curing).

And don't miss our new exfoliating bars! We've got two brand new ones: Citrus Black Pepper with Ground Coffee (pictured above, right), and Lemon Scone with Oatmeal (a goat milk bar). Both incredible, and both immediate staff favorites. In fact, just last night Joanna rubbed a raw chicken with butter and spices (for DINNER) and used the Citrus Black Pepper to degrease and scrub her hands. It was wonderful: no greasy aftermath, her hands smelled divine, and they were clean as a whistle.

Launch of Absolute Soap + Our New Site

We are incredibly proud to announce that our newly redesigned website (complete with a new logo: say goodbye to the striped boutique awning) is now live, and features the launch of our new soap line: ABSOLUTE SOAP.

We think it's about time that someone produce a line of handmade, real, pure soaps to replace the detergent and chemical-laden products on most store shelves. Soaps that are reasonably priced, soaps for every need, soaps for everyone: men, women and children.

ABSOLUTE SOAP is the real alternative. From our Everyday Soaps that we priced to make easy to use as replacements for every bar in your house, to specialties like face soap, kitchen soap, shave soap and exfoliating soap, there's something for every need (even shampoo - which is now curing and will be available soon).

Every bar is handmade, real cold process soap, made from pure, natural ingredients like olive oil, shea butter, goat milk, sea salt, coconut milk, essential oils, cocoa butter, ground coffee, oatmeal and many others.

Stop by the Product Body site to see all of our handmade body products, or go directly to the ABSOLUTE SOAP handmade soaps area to learn more.

Goat Milk Soap in The Mold

We haven't made an unscented goat milk soap in well over a year and it was great to get back to it. There is something so zen about it; the warm color, the feel on your skin.

This will be a permanent part of our soap collection, called Mar Bar incarnate. Olive oil, organic palm, coconut oil, and goat milk. All natural, of course. Yum.

Cure date to be announced when we launch our new line of soaps and new website and new labels!

UPDATE (May 21): Cured and available immediately in the goat milk soap section of our new site!
