We’ve made soap for 40 years

Unhappy with common soaps, Linda Quiring crafted an alternative. She grew ingredients, conducted experiments, and refined her recipes. In 1979, she founded Saltspring Soapworks. This led to local interest in her soaps, which spread around the world.

Look and Be Your Best

Her business expanded from the kitchen to the barn—and eventually into a small factory. In time, she also introduced skin care options, and opened a few retail shops. In 2012 Linda asked her son, Gary, and his wife Amber to take over operations.

Since then, they’ve worked to honor Linda’s legacy and values. (She believed in being environmentally conscious, staying small, and supporting the community.) Amber and Gary also introduced new systems and structure to the operation. These measures ensure quality and purity in our products.

Feel Beautiful on the Inside and Outside


A commitment to everything we make

We make Saltspring soaps and skincare products on Salt Spring Island. Our team formulates, sources, mixes, and packages each product by hand.

Our past is rich with experimentation. This ranges from repurposing cooking appliances to building our own custom tools. We examine ancient recipes. We test wholly new formulations. This is all led by a belief in ongoing, incremental improvement.
