About Us

Sally Cates in the Wild Eleven years ago I wandered into an open air green market in southern Florida. A woman was selling beautifully crafted soap that incorporated natural essential oils. I remember looking at each one in great detail. Seduced with the likes of real rosemary, lavender, and orange, I purchased three, packed them away and headed for home. These three little bars changed my path.
From then on, I sought out every book and article written about the art of natural soap making and essential oils. Creating, testing, seeking the finest ingredients available, and the desire to continuously improve are my mantras. I tucked the idea of creating a true all natural bath and body care business away into my dreams. Well, my dreams have become reality. Today Wildwood Soapworks is an environmentally conscious, small company located at 7100 feet above sea level on the edge of Gorieta Mesa 20 miles outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. We are offgrid with electric courtesy of the sun and water from rainwater harvesting. We have a healthy obsession to use only the finest ingredients on the planet, no matter what the cost!

Experience skincare as nature intended...Water will never be the same!
