It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about my soap preferences. My previous supplier went weird politically and seems to be forever out of stock on the soaps I use to get clean. I had to find an alternative.

Enter Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve (link). They really saved me when it comes to bar soap and have become my primary source of soap over the last ~9-12 months.

Currently I’m using the following products and I cannot complain. I highly recommend checking out their offerings, including the following

Activated Bamboo Charcoal
Dead Sea Black Clay
Loofah Adzuki Exfoliating
Coconut Milk Shampoo Bar
Lemon Lime Shaving Bar

I use the Activated Bamboo Charcoal as an overall body soap, Dead Sea Black Clay as hand soap and Loofah Adzuki Exfoliating on my feet/gross areas. The others should be pretty self-explanatory.

It took me awhile to find my preferences as Chagrin Valley offers a ton of soaps. The cool thing is they work off a basic castile soap and adjust accordingly. They also ship their soaps in a very boring, very recyclable cardboard box.

Edited 2022-11-06 to remove previous supplier name and make it clear why I changed suppliers. I still use Chagrin Valley as of this edit.
