Most beauty/bath bars are detergent based & strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dull, dry & itchy. Sami, the Soap Goddess, suffered from psoriasis on her scalp and no matter what combination of shampoo, oils, creams and lotions she tried, it kept coming back. She made her first batch of handmade soap as an act of desperation. Within DAYS, the pain and tightness and flaking disappeared and those bald patches started healing and allowing her hair to grow back in naturally.
Our final product has no lye and is super-fatted with skin nourishing oils. One of these products is glycerin, which behaves as a natural humectant - it draws moisture from the air into your skin. The vast majority of commercial soap makers extract this beneficial ingredient. We don't. Each bar is blended by hand and made with top shelf vegetable-based oils for an eco-friendly product, safe for the whole family. Just keep them away from young eyes. These soaps are NOT tear-free.
I could not be happier with this purchase! I bought two of these as gifts and they definitely exceeded my expectations. The sellers are fantastic to work with and were generous in their samples and wrote a lovely note that they included in the package to me. Outstanding customer service, lovely products, and one happy customer. Thank you guys! I will be back! ~ Lauren B.
Pip & Lola's can do no wrong in my eyes. This shop is pure genius. You must try these soaps, you'll never touch store bought soap again. ~Brienne R.

Samantha Story-Camp (aka Sami, Goddess of Soap at Pip & Lola’s) was browsing through Facebook one day and came across a story about a Suspended Coffee program at cafés in Europe and Australia. In the Suspended Coffee programs customers can pre-pay for a cup of coffee and “suspend” it so that if someone in need comes in then they can get that cup of coffee at no cost to them. She absolutely loved that idea and wanted to figure out a way for Pip & Lola’s to be able to do something like it. “Would something like this work for soap?” she wondered. She had read recently that one of the hardest things about homelessness is the inability to get clean. That inability can be very demoralizing. Could the gift of a bar of soap make a difference to someone in need?
Now in its third year (two years in Tacoma, WA and now in Pittsburgh, PA), Pip & Lola’s Suspended Soap program has been able to gift over 200 bars. It is a pretty simple thing. All a person in need has to do is ask if there are any "suspended" soaps. If there are any available, they will be gifted - no questions asked. Customers can purchase a soap either in person at the shop (3614 Main Street, Homestead PA 15120) or on-line and Pip & Lola’s will then match it with a second bar and put them on the Suspended Soap Shelf to wait for a person in need. Once few have been accumulated, they will be passed along to the various organizations – making sure there are some on the shelf in case someone comes in for one.
