About Us

Established in 2013, Shore Soaps is a gourmet soapery with locations in Cape May, NJ and Stone Harbor, NJ. All of our products are made by us, by hand, in small batches at our production facility in Cape May County. Our products are 100% vegan (no animal bi-products used), and cruelty free, from our ingredients to product testing. We only use the purest and highest quality essential oils which are steam-distilled right from the plant. We do not use any parabens, or harmful chemicals or preservatives in the making of our products. Our soaps are hand-cut, and cured for 4-6 weeks before shrink wrapping at peak-perfection and then distributed to our 20+ stockists, and our own store shelves. You can also find us at West End Garage in Cape May, as well as many festivals, farmers markets, and events in the area. Interested in learning our craft? We teach a variety of hands on, informational classes out of our Production Facility in Rio Grande, NJ - Contact us for more info on classes, or check our Stockists page for locations where you can find us, and a schedule of our upcoming events!
