ZenSoaps only sells soaps by the Batch. With ingredient costs going up daily, our decision to switch to batch sales enables us to keep our prices low, while continuing to offer you uncompromising quality.

Why ZenSoaps?

•We ensure freshness and suitability by making new batches for each order.
•Everything we sell is handmade by us.
•Our proprietary formulas are tested for perfection and quality
Note: HP soaps are inherently more rustic and 'bumpy' looking than smoother CP. What they miss in appearance, they make up for in the more luxurious feel. All our soaps are HP unless otherwise noted or requested.

• The finest possible ingredients.
• Our soap is good for your skin.
• We look forward to delighting you!

Custom Soaps

lemon meringue soapWe are soap 'chefs', and our greatest enjoyment has always been the challenge of making creative unique-looking batches. These used to be sold in our online shop as 'specials'. However, each 'special' had to be photographed, described, and then uploaded to the store, cutting into our production time and increasing our expenses.

By offering only full batches, tailored to your needs, your color preferences, your ingredient choices, we are able to make each and every batch 'special', while continuing to provide our customers with the skin care benefits that set us apart.

meringue cake soapChoose your batch from our classic line of functional soaps, or give us precise specifications for a unique batch of soap. You can be the designer. We will do the rest. We continue to have satisfied customers over the years because we deliver on our promise of the highest quality in a beautiful and skin-nourishing bar of handmade soap.

What do you get from Zensoaps when you order a full batch?
28-32 bars of soap (depending on mold used) that are custom-made just for you. All batches offer luxury ingredients and are each carefully formulated using skin benefitting ingredients that we pride ourselves on.

white chocolate mint soapAll our colored products use food grade colorants. Fragrances will always be natural essential oils where possible, however, fragrance oils will be used where certain scents do not exist in nature (there are no natural fruit scents, for example). We strive to ensure that all our ingredients are the safest, most natural, and the finest on the market. No batch will be shipped without meeting our standards for quality. You will always feel the difference.

gardeners soapBenefits - moisturizing, acne, wake-up, dry skin, problem skin, allergic skin, specific ingredients or lack of.

Purpose - need a gardening soap with scrubby?

Here's one to the left. We use skin softening oatmeal for the scrubby, in an extra bubbly formula to get the dirt out of under the nails.

fishy soapFishing soap - we have a formula we adapted from someone who's family handed it down for 2 generations. It was used to keep human scent off of the hands when pulling fish out of the water - fresh water only.

It can also work as a hunting soap I've been told, although we've never tested that.



shaving soapShaving soap? Our bubbliest and slimiest formula that creates almost a gel on your face. Yes, it's pure handmade soap. Every oil has specific properties, and we know exactly what those properties are. While this will not be as thick as shaving cream, it is certainly better for your skin.

Ask, you may be surprised what formulatoins we can come up with and have already tested. We've refined a whole lot of soap formulas over the years:).
