Keep Your Skin Soft with these Handmade Soaps in Gilbert

Shop for Handmade Soaps in Gilbert at these Local Shops

If you're searching for handmade soap that smells great and features the finest ingredients, several local stores have you covered. They offer a range of scents, and best of all, you can shop in person or online. The stores near our Gilbert apartments include:

AZ Dope Soap

Jessica discovered Scentsible Suds after moving to Gilbert. She loved how the natural soaps made her skin feel. She quickly became a loyal customer and later took over the business. Jessica changed the name to AZ Dope Soap, and while the products feature a new look, they're still the same ones customers have come to know and love. Scents include coconut, lavender lemongrass, eucalyptus spearmint. To shop in person, visit the Gilbert Farmers Market on Saturdays. 

Buff City Soap 

Buff City Soap boasts that it's the "last bar of soap you'll ever buy." Its mission is to make life smell better. The products feature plant-based products you can pronounce, and you can watch as they're made in front of your eyes. Soaps include All Hail the Queen, Ferocious Beast, and Fruity Loopy. Other items include laundry soap, beard balm, and body scrubs. You'll find Buff City Soap in nearby Tempe. It's open daily and offers convenient shipping if you would rather shop from home. 

Strawberry Hedgehog

Don't miss shopping at Strawberry Hedgehog. In 2014, it was named "Best Soap in the Valley" by Phoenix Magazine. Tracy Perkins founded the shop while in college after struggling to find quality and affordable vegan products. She started by making goodies for her family and friends and named her product line after the local strawberry hedgehog cactus. Soap scents include rosewood-geranium, eucalyptus-lime, and green apple-rosemary. To save time, shop online for shipping or curbside pickup. 

After shopping for soap, enjoy a sweet treat at a nearby ice cream shop. Finally, if you would like to become a resident of Town Commons, please contact us. Our team will gladly show you everything our apartments in Gilbert have to offer.
