Take a look at the label on the back of one of your skincare products.

The average person exposes their skin to over 200 chemicals every day, and about 60% of these chemicals can be found floating in the bloodstream.

Your skin is your body’s largest living breathing organ. When you put chemicals on it, your skin “ingests” them. You wouldn’t choose to eat, drink or even lick a chemical cocktail, so why force your skin to? Why do you think so much animal testing goes on? Because many of the chemicals can be toxic when they touch the skin, leaving rashes, burns, and worse.

When we first started Beekman 1802, our goal was to create an all-purpose “Soap for Sensitive People” using only the purest ingredients. Our skin is exposed to enough chemicals and pollutants during the course of day;  we certainly don’t need more to clean them away.

Beekman soaps contain ONLY goat milk, olive oil, soy oil, coconut oil, lye and essential oil blends.

Cleopatra would bathe in goat milk to restore her skin from the exposure to the arid desert air. It’s true. Goat milk is exceptionally moisturizing, but it also has the same pH as human skin, so it doesn’t lead to excess drying. Our Beekman 1802 bars can be used to cleanse face, body and even your hair.

Many commercial soaps use petrochemical byproducts which allow them to make cheaper products in larger quantities, but these can be irritating to the skin. Synthetic fragrances are then added to mask the smell. These, too, can irritate the skin (and the nose!).

In our scented soaps, we use only blends of essential oils, and even then at very small amounts so that the scent is light and never lingers on the skin.

    I have sensitive skin and I love this soap and I love the way it smells. I use this soap even though my mom makes soap too 😉

    In general, do you think the soap would be okay to use on your face if you are prone to acne and clogged pores? I understand if you may not know…currently Googling…Thanks!

      Hi, Abby. It is indeed. I have oily skin, and I use Lump of Kohl on my face every morning.

        Thanks! The only thing is, my skin is kind of dry. Should I alternate with something else? At the very least, I want to get either the honey or the “regular” soap for non-facial use. :)

    I’ve been using your unscented soap for a few years now and I wanted to let everyone know that it is as good as you say :) I love it.

    Love your soaps, use them every single day, since the first time I bought them. Love my baby soft skin. I smell great after the shower too.

    I haven’t tried the soap yet either, but I am trying to eliminate “the bad stuff” a little at a time. Perhaps this is a good place to start!

    They are so pretty! Timeless really…..

    This is so important. I am finding out more about my makeup I buy and I am not happy about what they are putting into my products. I trust your brand and your soap is really amazing.

    I haven’t tried your soap yet. I use Ivory, always have. I looked up “lye” It says lye is used in soap making, also oven cleaner and drain cleaner. So I guess it’s the percentage of lye that makes the difference. But, lye is certainly a chemical.

      Hi, Marie. To clarify, we don’t use any synthetic chemicals in our products. Lye is a naturally formed product and is the primary component of ashes. No soap can be made without the use of lye
