"Handcrafted with organic botanicals as the cornerstone"

Cathryn Violet Artisan Soap holds paramount value in handcrafting products that are made with wholesome high quality ingredients and sustainable methods. I have chosen to go straight to the source and gather local,organic botanicals & essential oils. CVAS believes that ethically and environmentally this concept is very important to a sustainable world and our health and well being. We've been organic and locally foraging since the beginning of our company's founding.
CVAS only uses high quality vegan ingredients in its base oils as well, avoiding synthetic fragrances, dyes, and commercial detergents of a variety of chemical names ( there are no phalates, parabens, sulfates, phenoxyethanol, PEG, propylene glycol, petroleum products, tetrasodium EDTA, silicones, or synthetic surfactants). You'll find only plant botanicals and cruelty free soap here in the workshop!
Assured quality and organic botanicals are the cornerstone in the soap making process from the first hydrating splash of distilled water to the saponification of nourishing oils and the luscious finished product. CVAS saponifies primarily with herbs, flora, fruit and sometimes even veggies (i.e. pumpkin) from local farms.
While living on the island of Martha's Vineyard for 10 years, I developed a passion for the artisanal craft of soapmaking. Inspired by the subtle yet majestic beauty of the natural flora that grew along the seashore, I studied native island plants, gardening and lived on an organic and ecologically sustainable farm. I learned the importance of living simply, surrounding myself with natural beauty, and pouring that philosophy into my craft.
As an east coast soap artisan now living by the sea in the ocean state of Rhode Island (where the state flower happens to be the violet and in a stroke of luck my middle name), I find myself inspired by the creative vibrancy as well as the historical artistic ingenuity of the area. What makes my soap unique is how the organic botanical ingredients are handcrafted in a way that lets the elements of nature shine with simplicity. I use a secret European cold-process recipe and select flora and essential oils for their incomparable beauty, texture, cleansing and skin nourishing properties. Cathryn Violet Artisan Soap utilizes the healing properties of nature's organic botanicals in its environmentally conscious self care products.
