The Story of Mooseberry Soap Company
At Mooseberry, we are Soap Artists and Body Care Experts, taking pride in carefully manufacturing each product by hand. Mooseberry started in a log cabin in the finger lakes region of New York State, where the owner, Mary Bartolotta, began making soap in her home in 2009. Mooseberry Soap Company quickly moved to its first warehouse in 2010 and has been growing steadily ever since, with store locations worldwide. The company mission has remained steady and forthright - that what you put on your body should be as important as what goes in. That's why the ingredients selected for skin are sustainable, organic, moisturizing, exfoliating, purifying and balancing.
Mooseberry secures clean, certified manufacturing equipment for your body care. Once you try our organic soap and body care products, there is no turning back.
In Mary’s Own Words…
Since early 2009, I have been creating soaps and body care using organic certified oils, hand grown herbs & spices and rich local butters, gleaned from local farms in the Finger Lakes and central New York, where fruits and vegetables abound. A squash, pumpkin or handful of berries is transformed into a lotion, cream or artisan soap, each one chock full of properties that are amazing on the skin.
Recipes have always come easily to me because of my background as a pastry chef and restauranteur. Hours were spent in the kitchen as a child, watching and helping my mother cook and bake for a brood of six children. Prior to soap making and long after my mother was gone, I spent my own years in that very same kitchen, refining recipes passed down from generations.
In 2014, I travelled to Sicily, where I imagined how my grandparents must have lived, worked, worshiped, and of course, cooked and baked, and perhaps made soap. I believe it is my heritage that gives me my flair for developing unique, new recipes and it is my passion that keeps me going.
At Mooseberry, we have been living our mission “What goes on our body should be as good as what goes in”, long before the notion became popular in today’s organic market place. That’s why our products are real & sustainable, rustic & luscious.
