Erin Nelson,
Owner of Irish Twins Soap Company

 

 

Hello!

 

I’m Erin Nelson, owner of Irish Twins Soap Company…so pleased you landed on our page.

I started making soaps several years ago when I got a bit fed up with my quest for soap without petroleum, synthetic perfumes and colors.  You see I am fussy about what I put on my skin because skin absorbs whatever you put on it.  In a world full of chemicals I wanted to get back to simple, natural basics.  I wanted an easy natural product and I wanted to know what was in it.  And so I began. 

I knew I couldn’t be the only one who felt this way, so I bought my first soap mold on Craigslist almost 7 years ago, fired up my first batch in my kitchen and the rest is history as they say.  I had no idea I had boarded the Soap Train. 

In those 7 years we have attended Farmer’s Markets, Craft & Arts Shows, Pop-up Shops and several retailers have picked up our products in their health markets or salons.  We now have a full line of all natural aromatherapy artisan soaps that are safe, non-toxic alternatives to commercial soaps with artificial dyes, colors, and fragrances. 

I try to source ingredients as locally as possible, and we try to package our goodies minimally.  We try to be mindful of every purchase we make and strive to support fair trade, organic and sustainable businesses.

We now have a brick and mortar shop in a historical building in the main downtown district of our small town. It’s a far cry from our kitchen at home with a full soaping kitchen and a studio full of molds, essential oils, packaging materials and a full candle station where we pour our soywax candles and waxmelt tarts.

Stop by our browse our full line of soaps, spa luxuries like sugar scrub, bath truffles, cupcake soaps, bath bombs, bath salts, body butters, all natural deodorants.  Because I’m naturally minded all around, we also have a full line of green homekeeping products from laundry soap, laundry stain sticks, wool dryer balls, lavender sachets and linen sprays.

So what are Irish Twins?  Siblings born less than a year apart.  My sis and I are 11 months apart, we’re Irish and it seems like a perfect fit!

We’re a small business and we love to support small business.  We’re invested in our business, our quality matters, our customers matter. 

I’d love to connect with you!

I love this soap Tried this soap for the first time recently and it's wonderful. I love the touch of activated charcoal. Great scent overall, leaves skin feeling great, and it's pretty to boot. My guess is that it got its name because the design in it looks like the tongue/lips logo of The Rolling Stones. At least I think it looks like that. Feel like a rockstar!Dead Sea Mud Soap Metamorphic Rockstar Soap

Great Soaps Love the soaps I ordered. Erin at Irish Twins Soap Co. Is so helpful and added a sample of a natural deodorant product she is working. I have been using it for a week now and I love it. I love the fact that it is all natural with no bad chemicals in it like store bought deodorants. It works just fine. Going to get my husband started on it now. The soap that Erin suggested for my dry skin type was just I needed. Thanks Erin for your excellent service and especially thanks for the sweet note you included with my order. Can't wait for your deodorant line.

Best Cleanser! Love this bar! I keep it in the shower and it exfoliates very well. I will be purchasing more of this in September @ Robyn's Junk Fest @ The Nest. Gardener's/Mechanic's Rustic Soap

Amazing!When the opportunity came up to purchase the deodorant sampler I knew I had to get it. I was skeptical about it working but I figured it didn't cost that much so if it didn't work I would have only wasted a few dollars. But.....it works! I use a tiny amount once or twice a day. It smells great. The scent is barely noticeable after you apply the deodorant so you don't have to worry about it clashing with the scent of your perfume/cologne/body spray. The obvious awesomeness is that this deodorant doesn't contain harsh chemicals. There's also something else that's great about it, its actually good for your skin! I am so happy I decided to try it out and can't wait to buy more soon :-) All-Natural Paraben-Free, Aluminum-Free Deodorant Samplers

Soap Dish Good, small device - allows the soap to drain and dry quickly. The soap will stick to it, sometimes, and have to be pried loose, especially if laid flat, but it's not a big problem. Soap Saver Dish

An Uplifting Scent! My mother is sensitive to scents and chemicals. Whenever I can she has me buy natural soaps and this has become her favorite!Lemongrass Rustic

Great for sensitive Skin!! Great for sensitive skin!!!Laundry Concentrate

Soothing for trouble skin This soap is wonderful! It really helped calm down my psoriasis flare up. It's mildly scented which I like. My skin feel so soft after I used it, no more flakes, no more itch. My husband and kids loved it as well. Dead Sea Mud Soap
