Why Salt & Butter?
Simple. Thoughtful. Intentional.
Simple…we need to feed our skin as much as we need to feed our bodies. We strive to nourish ourselves from the inside…but tend to forget about just how simple it is to do something incredible for our overexposed and daily embattled epidermis.
Our ingredient choices are fresh, naturally nourishing and moisturizing. Gorgeous butters and rich oils packed full of powerful antioxidants, essential fatty acids, along with incredible additions such as superfood boosts naturally carrying critical enzymes, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, and serious Vitamins just to start. We’ve also carefully chosen what to avoid as well. Phthalate and paraben free, every single thing that goes into our handpoured and crafted products is thoughtfully chosen with the sole intent to #feedyourskin. Just please… #donteatthesoap.
My journey began as a child with an auto-immune disorder which originally attacked and inflamed my skin. Just over a dozen years ago, it morphed into attacking my joints as well. It was then I buckled down and became more proactive about my own care…starting with my skin.
The negative response my skin had to most commercially available skincare products limited me to either extraordinarily priced products or a very narrow selection of mundane basics. But I still wanted the fun and delicious sparkle that nourished my skin…without breaking the bank! So the intention began.
I soon discovered this journey was actually a creative outlet waiting to happen. It would come to be able to feed and nourish my hurting skin, but my creative soul as well. Working with the massive variety of natural components to discover the combinations which best serve up their nutrition, and then make it a complete sensory experience? There’s absolute magic in that.
Today, Salt & Butter Soap Kitchen is here to help do the same for you. Our mission is to help you feed your skin…and uplift your heart in the process. Bring a smile to your face as you enjoy the way your skin feels, and far more importantly…the way you feel in your skin.

We are a family company; headed by two sisters with the help and support of the whole clan. Several members of our family struggle with eczema (one with psoriasis) and after frustration and lack of results prompted us to give up on conventional products, we began delving into the world of natural ingredients. Putting together aspects of various home/folk remedies over years of study, trial and errors, resulted in the proprietary blends we now hope to bless others with.
Although we are one of many companies using only natural ingredients, we are unique in our inclusion of herbal infused oils. We focus on the healing properties of each and every ingredient. We carefully select ingredients that not only have strong healing capabilities, but are also gentle with no known adverse reactions and rare allergic reactions. We are so serious in our commitment to help people of all skin types that if a customer does have an allergy to one of our ingredients, we will make a custom order specifically tailored to that individual’s needs and allergies with little to no extra cost.
As moms of young, mischievous children, we know the importance of keeping our kids safe. Therefore, we use food-grade, non-toxic ingredients. All of our oils and herbs were chosen specifically for this reason so, although we don’t recommend adding it to your diet, all of our products are safe to consume. Also, we make everything by hand, carefully insuring a consistent, quality product. We choose the most natural, organic ingredients we can find.
My daughter has eczema and it was getting worse day by day!! So katie gave me some of her magical stuff and in less than a week her skin is soooooo much better!! I love this stuff. Also my daughter was playing at the park and got a little scrapped up from a fall and didn’t even flinched when I applied it to the injured area. I swear it made it heal faster too!! I never would’ve been able to touch her with a regular lotion from the store. That would’ve stung to much!! But this stuff?? She just sat there and let me slather it on her!!
Elizabeth Ann Andersen,
A week before my wedding I got a bad burn from a tanning bed all down my body, the worst on my face. I was red and started peeling all over my face and was so stressed it wouldn’t clear up before my wedding! 3 days prior to my wedding I tried a shea butter all over my face and body and it immensely cooled the burn and got rid of the peeling just in time for my wedding! I LOVE this product and HIGHLY recommend this for any sun redness or peeling/dry skin. Wasn’t irritating at all to apply and worked like a charm! Thank you Nicole and Katie for this miracle cream!
My son suffers from severe eczema on several parts of his body. He gets it on his face, arms, a couple spots on his back, and his toes. But the worst of it all is behind his knees. Because he is so active he is constantly scratching at it. He was constantly bandaged up and I was finding Band-Aids everywhere because he pulled them off to scratch. I mean how could you ignore it when it’s right behind your knees. We had tried so many different products including steroids prescribed by my son’s doctor. None of them really did the trick, and the ones that did had to be applied 3-4 times a day. With this product I can apply once every other day after bath times or as break outs happen and within 12-24 hours my son’s skin is completely healed. I would and will recommend this product to anyone and everyone. They are truly miracle products.
