Dear Sappo,

Thank you for making such a wonderful product line. For anyone having dermatological issues we have found that using your soaps have solved all allergic reactions for both my staff and family. Highest of recommendations.

Just wanted you to know my last order was phenomenal!  Has lasted over a year now... Many thanks for your wonderful therapeutic soaps.  I cannot thank you enough.



A friend of mine has flawless skin and she told me that she washes her face with natural Sappo Hill soap and then applies coconut oil...that's it!

I began using it to bathe my children who now fight over the oatmeal soap because they both love it. While in their bath tonight, after washing his feet and with a big smile on his face, my 4-year old said, "Mmmm, my feet smell like oatmeal!" We will continue to be loyal customers. Thank you for making such a a wonderful product!

My favorite Sappo Hill soap bar is the Shampoo Bar Avocado oil Tea Tree, but I don't use it for my hair.  I actually started trying it on my face (because of the Tea Tree oil), and I have had incredible improvement with my acne. I thought you might want to know how nicely this works. Thank you.



I've used Sappo Hill soaps for 10 years. I alternate between the glycerine, regular oatmeal and the aloe oatmeal. They are good for sensitive skin, moisturize without leaving the skin oily, and the oatmeal helps ease irritation and excessive oiliness.


This is now my favorite soap!!! I
buy it every week from Wegmans. I
love it. It doesn't dry my skin.
It smells great! It's sensitive
enough to use on my face!!!!! I
tell everyone to use this soap.


I originally bought your oatmeal soap at the New Orleans Food Coop.   Best ever for my psoriasis, so I bought all they had on hand. Cheers!


As an African-American, I tend to have drier skin. Most soaps, even many all natural soaps over-dry my skin. However, after just one use of your soap, my skin was super moisturized!! No need for lotion!!! You've got me hooked!


Been using over 20 years. Had to have surgery this week and forced to use dial antibacterial. Oh my word the difference is marked! The dial shriveled me up like a prune. Cant wait to use my Sappo today!!



Sappo Hill soap is the best soap I have ever used! I prefer natural soaps and I have tried soaps made with goats milk vs the Sappo Hill process.Not only do I feel more clean and not coated, it doesn't dissolve and coat my shower! I really dig the activated charcoal along with sandalwood.

-Todd R

Your Bamboo Charcoal soap is awesome! I hope it will be on on the menu permanently. I'll definitely be getting it whenever it's available. Thanks!


Dear Sappo Hill,

I have been using Sappo Hill for a LONG TIME! Thank you for making such a great soap. I'm a fan for LIFE! I recommend it to all my patients with dermatologic issues.

I.H., NP



I have used your soap (all kinds!) for 9 years straight, and my stars it is the VERY BEST thing I have ever used on my body. I am allergic to almost every soap, and never, ever had an issue with yours ! Also its affordable, smells amazing and it lasts a great length ! 5 stars till the cows come home!


L. Bee

I first bought this soap at a local health food store and fell in love with it!  I have terrible dry skin and am probe to eczema and "chicken skin and this is the ONLY soap I have come across in my 30 years of life that makes my skin soft and smooth. As soon as I ran out my chicken skin came back and I tried another brand of oatmeal soap but it only made it worse!

-Lisa B.

I tried your shampoo bar and I absolutely love what it does for my hair....!

Thank you so much!


Hello Sappo Hill, 
I have a medical office for skin care...I recently came across your oatmeal soap and
found it just as effective for dry skin and other skin issues.
Dr. S.


My boys loves the scent. And living in Tennessee with Chigger season this soap quiets the itching when they forget their long socks



Our family doesn't use anything else for last 3 years, very happy with it!!! Great with eczema, psoriasis or baby sensitive skin. No smell, very gentle on skin, doesn't leave the dry feeling.


My husband's legs always itched after showering; we tried the unscented and he won't use anything else!!!! I order by the dozen!!! The gardnener's bar is awesome as well!!! Works great on all ranch dirt!!!


I love all of your soaps and recently tried your shampoo bar with avocado oil. Oh, is that ever a fantastic shampoo!!!!

-D. Cullen

A friend who has even more seriously sensitive skin than I do shared a couple of "bars" of their plain glycerin soap that is so gentle I can use it every day. I keep some in the house always.


I love this soap! I have lots of allergies and this is the only soap I can use!


This (Old Fashioned Oatmeal) is my favorite soap and the aloe vere!! I use this skin is so smooth and moisturized after taking a bath🌸💕and it smells so refreshing✨

-Lei Annah

Sappo Hill’s shampoo bar has simplified my routine so delightfully because I can use it on my face and body, and no longer need daily conditioner, which caused breakouts.

One pure product for a rich lather. It feels great!  It took a while for my hair to get used to it.  I found that lathering all the way down the hair shaft until I can run my fingers through all my hair, and then rinsing leaves hair clean and bouncy.  

:)  -J. Lee

I'm so happy I found your soap! I have a skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris (small, dry bumps on the skin) and nothing can get rid of it. It's often dry and itchy and Ive tried every moisturizer in the world to calm it down but to no avail. I found your soap at my local coop and picked it up at the check out as an impulse buy, and it has left my skin so soft and moisturized! My Keratosis is still there but it's no longer dry or itchy at all, and is much less irritated. Thank you again!

Dear Soapmaker...

I am anxious to try some of your old-fashioned handmade soaps. I saw your ad in the Classified Flea Market.

What the world needs now is more natural soap, so please keep on making soap. Thank you in advance, I know it will be great!

Om Shanti...

Berkeley, California

I've been using your fragrance-free oatmeal soap for years and love it but decided to try the almond just for fun. I started noticing that my upper body acne was better the times that I used the almond soap and now I use it regularly. No more need for my high strength acne wash for those areas anymore! Not sure why but an exfoliating mitt and the almond soap work just as good. I'm happy to not need to put those chemicals on myself anymore.



We love offering your soap to our Airbnb guests. I've always loved your soap and happy to help promote such a great product.

-Scott C.


Thank you so much for making your fragrance free soap. I took my eight month old son to the doctor because of a red flakey rash on his body and the doctor said it was eczema and suggested a steroid cream. On my mission to look for a natural approach to treat his ailment I found your soap, and his eczema has completely cleared up.

Thank you, Lisa

Your soap is simply amazing! When I tried it all the dryness in my face disappeared and it left my skin looking and feeling the helathiest it's been in a long time. I have been raving to all my friends and family about your products. Keep up the fabulous job!


A friend who has even more seriously sensitive skin than I do shared a couple of bars of the plain glycerin soap that is so gentle I can use it every day. I keep some in the house always.


I love your soap. I want to thank you for making it, and for selling it at such a reasonable price. Thank you for making it affordable for everyone...even a blue-collar family like mine.

I love that your product is so gentle to our precious mother earth and to all her inhabitants.

I was sooooo happy to find your soap. I am very sensitive to chemicals and perfumes so I love that your scents are so light and clean, and pure and natural smelling.

Thank you for such a wonderful product. Please keep making it.


I started using the aloe and oatmeal soap on my face as mask and for regular washing. this stuff is awesome. the redness on my face from acne medication has gone away and my acne has cleared up completely. I've used other organic soaps but never had these results. thank you so much



Hi guys-- Thanks so much for making both great-smelling and fragrance-free vegan soap with ZERO packaging! I've replaced all the pump-style soft soaps in my house with little bars of Sappo Hill. Thanks for all that you do!


Several years ago, I began to develop a severe skin eczema. Specialists were giving me steroid injections, steroid creams, and even oral steroids.

Your product has changed my life. I never stay overnight anywhere that I don't take my soap with me. I've even recommended it to my dermatologist to pass on to his other patients. Thanks so much.


A quick note of thanks for your product. We have used your soap exclusively for 17 years now (since 1992). We love the different fragrances and textures, lathering quality, longevity, and lack of residue. We have never been disappointed and in fact consider it one of life's small pleasures to get a new flavor of Sappo Hill soap in the shower. Keep up the good work.

-Jim and Ann

My wife and I have been using your soap for over 6 years now and we love it. Seriously great stuff!


Don't ever change a thing about your soaps! I can't wait to share the variety pack I ordered for friends and family this Xmas.

This is the only soap I've found that doesn't a) cause breakouts b) dry my skin out or c) make my skin feel "slimy." In addition, it lasts forever, I can shave with it , and it smells wonderful! Even the non-scented! Just clean and fresh~


I love your soap. Because I have allergies, they make my life much easier. And, I am always looking for products that are not packaged wastefully or in plastic. I love you; please don't ever change. ;)


Dear Sappo Hill,

I adore the simplicity of your soaps. I am a raw vegan who is prominent in the community,  I am a performer in film and television and under the studio lights I must wear quite a bit of make up. I use the unscented Oatmeal Sappo Hill bar to cleanse my body as well as remove my professional cosmetics including eye make up. Sappo Hill is gentle in my eyes. Finally, as an environmentalist and waste- free living advocate, I eliminate packaging, too, wherever I can and I am excited to know that Sappo Hill represents similar ideals with the NO packaging consumer purchase and the recycled content cardboard bulk boxes used to display the items on the shelves of Hollywood Whole Foods. I hope you gain an account with Hollywood's Erewhon as well. Thank you for creating this soap...

- T.K.

Every time I start a new oatmeal or almond bar of soap, I put the purchase sticker on the wall of my shower. I'm up to over 12 stickers now, and I still love the smell and feel of this soap. You keep making it, I'll keep using it. One day, maybe, my whole shower will be covered in those stickers!


I LOVE your oatmeal fragrance free soap. I used to use expensive face soaps until I read the ingredients and wondered why 25 ingredients? Your soap is simple and natural. BRAVO- for making an environmentally friendly product due to your savvy packaging (or lack thereof).

Sincerely, Cecelia

I have been using and enjoying your soaps for many years now. I wanted to thank you for offering such wonderful soaps, and not having them in fancy packaging. I really appreciate being able to buy soap without creating extra trash. My favorite soaps are in your oatmeal line. It acts as a sort of loofah....and my skin feels wonderful!


I love the almond and oatmeal and am eager to try your other scents. I just put in an order for my holiday gifts. I'll keep some stashed in the house for a quick gift, or to just lift someone's spirirts! The price per bar is so affordable for such a quality soap- a great product at a great price. Thanks!


I love your soaps! I have very sensitive skin, so I tried the fragrance free soaps. I discovered that the others I have tried were also mild enough for me to use. Hooray!

I have been sending some of your soap to family members to try, and they loved it!

Thank you for a great product and great customer service!


I just wanted to say that I am very satisfied with the two bars (oatmeal and almond) that I've been using for the last week. Both have great scents and consistencies. It's really nice to finally have a soap I can enjoy using for the shower and for hand-washing that smells great but doesn't leave me dry or slimy. As a frequent hand-washer I can't tell you how I like the fact that your soaps do not dry out my hands. I would like to thank you for keeping your product high quality at a very affordable price compared to the other soaps it gets lined up with at the store.


LOVE your soaps!  first purchased 3 bars, from mountain mammas, in co springs, co, 2 days ago, and i love the silkiness of the suds. plus it makes my skin feel a lot better than the commercial soaps i've been buying, i'll continue to buy your brand of soap, also, it smells great, ty jeannie

I LOVE YOUR SOAPS!!! I discovered your oatmeal soap when I was in Kauai getting married and I happened upon it at Foodland. I never thought I would find something as amazing as your soap in a grocery store but I'm so glad I did!!!

I have never liked using bar soap- I was strictly a body wash in a bottle and loofah girl because I never liked the way my skin felt after bar soaps. I bought the oatmeal soap randomly because the smell was sooooo good and then when I felt my skin after using it in the shower it was so soft!!! That was a definitive moment- I fell in love with the soap and decided I'm never using that bottle body wash ever again! I love that there are no parabens or phthalates or anything unnatural. I've never liked "natural" beauty items but your soap takes the cake. It's a big deal for me that I switched to a bar- I thought I would NEVER use a bar, but here we are.

Thank you for such an amazing product...I'm a customer for life :)


I use Sappo Hill natural unscented oatmeal soap. I spent ages looking for a body wash free of harmful chemicals but I just couldn't find one. Sappo Hill attracted my attention because the unscented variety actually has no fragrance (surprisingly rare!) and I could pronounce and recognise all of the ingredients! It's all the same stuff I used when I made my own soap, without having to make my own soap. Besides, it's named for the hill in Ancient Rome where the cleansing properties of lye mixed with fat were first discovered! Bonus!


I love  you!! After using a liquid castile soap for many years, I started to find that it was leaving my skin pretty dry. So began the hunt for a new natural soap. After months of bouncing around between a few different ones that just didn't work for various reasons, I finally settled on Sappo Hill. My search has ended. Yay!! Plus, Sappo Hill is always available at my local Whole Foods or co-op grocery store. Keep up the excellent work!!


I've been buying your wonderful soap for our family for many years now at Debra's Natural Gourmet in West Concord, MA...the almond is our favorite. I'm especially grateful for your products these days since our son has many allergies to otherwise natural soap ingredients (such as dairy cream, goat's milk, even olive oil) but his skin loves your simple, rich soap. Thank you so much for continuing your thoughtful approach to making such pure, simple and satisfying soaps at a very affordable price,'re a rare breed!


I just wanted to tell you how your oatmeal soap is a miracle soap to me. To start with, I broke out in rashes on my arms, legs, and hands since I was 2 years old to now, in my early 40's. I've tried everything it seems and nothing helps the rash till I started using this soap this past winter and into this spring. I usually break out in May and it's middle of June now and no rash so far!! Anybody who has skin problems of any kind, should use this soap!! I won't be using any other soap for now on so please don't stop making it. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!


I have just tried the Oatmeal Soap. I must say that this is the best soap for oily skin. I have tried all of the high end soaps, they either irritated my skin, or just made me have large pores. Since I've gone Vegan, I was definitely looking for a more natural soap, and you guys have delivered everything in a soap that a person would ever need, my skin is firmer, my face is producing less oil, pores are closed. In addition I'm also bald, and I use the Oatmeal, Aloe soap for shaving, your soap also gives the perfect shave, with no irritation. I appreciate this product, your business, and all that you stand for, please keep producing a great product, I will always be a buyer.


Just dropping a thank you note to the staff at Sappo Hill for making such great products! Since using your soaps my skin has transformed. I have shared this incredible discovery with my entire family and friends. Never stop making these soaps!

Again, thank you for the amazing product!

With much appreciation,


I recently ordered a bar of your fragrance-free natural oatmeal soap. I must tell you how pleased with it I am. I have MCS and have (for a long time) been looking for a soap that would not cause allergic reactions. The faint fragrance is delightful, the lather creamy and soft, and it rinses quickly and cleanly from my hands. I intend to make this our primary household soap from now on. Thank you for a wonderful organic product.

Katie J.

I just wanted to let you know how much my husband and I enjoy your soaps. The fragrances are great, they make your skin feel soft, and they are cruelty-free!

I found out about your company from the National Anti-Vivisection Society and I couldn't be more happy with a soap.

I congratulate you on an excellent product -- keep up the good work! As you can see, I've enclosed an order for more!




Ever since I was a baby, I had been plagued with eczema, an itchy rash, which covered my arms, legs, and hands. Although dermatologists managed to fairly control my sensitive skin with various pills, lotions, creams, and ointments, I always managed to occasionally re-live the itching, burning, irritation, and infection that my skin created. For nineteen years, I suffered and hoped to "out grow" the disease.

I threw away all of the chemicals after I tried the Sappo Hill Almond Soap. The cruelty-free, vegetarian, and God-sent soap completely cleared up my skin. I have personal proof that vegetarian products are better than animal-tested, artificial chemicals!

I am forever grateful for Sappo Hill Soap. Thank you!


(a very satisfied customer)

P.S. - Please remain cruelty-free!

We can't tell you how pleased we are with the soaps you sell! they lather up great, last a long time, and smell great! We first bought the soap because it had not plastic or cardboard wrapping, which we thought was an excellent idea (less junk to fill landfills with.) And now we discovered you don't test on animals -- great! Keep up the good work!

Your soap is sooooo wonderful, our guests are swiping it!

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much my family and I love your soap!

I am a 32 year old housewife with three children, and nobody can believe how young my skin looks. I have to show my I.D. in restaurants and when buying wine for dinner at the supermarket and I love it! I have always been very sensitive to soap and fragrance which is why I started using your soap several years ago. I have used it faithfully since finding it in a health food store in Los Angeles, CA, and have been ordering a year's supply at a time from you directly - going on my third year. My entire family uses it, I purchase nothing else. And I recommend your product to anyone interested enough to quiz me on what I use on my skin.

Thank you so much for making such a wonderful product, and please never stop.

Sincerely yours,

Carlsbad, California

I should like to thank you very much for making Sappo Hill Glycerin Creme Soap. In order to help my patients with skin problems and environmental allergies, I am always on the lookout for natural, unscented products.

It would be very pleasing to me to be able to give patients a sample bar when applicable, and to know where they might be able to obtain your soap. I would also enjoy purchasing a case for my personal use, if the cost is reasonable.

Thank you very much. Sincerely,

William, M.D.
San Francisco, California

This is just to say that I find your soap to be an excellent product. Also, I appreciate the lack of packaging, it is a rare thing to find a bar of soap for sale with no packaging whatsoever. The quality of soap is supreme - keep up the good work!

Thanks again,

Colorado Springs, Colorado


I can attest to this being the only soap I used when struggling with eczema for years. Irritant free! So grateful for this company that they have made a product that helps those with sensitive skin!❤️


I washed my hair with this soap as I am trying to not use single used plastic and it’s a plastic free product and it’s the bomb. I used to for everything mild and natural smelling.... I can’t be happier!



Dear Sappo Hill,

I have used your unscented soap for a long time.
I too have great sensitivity for all soaps on the market. My doctor recommended free and clear. I did not like. I am looking to try your soap as a shampoo after reading that you can use it as a shampoo. I too thank you for your soap. I cannot use anything else that works for me.

Thank you,

Recently I was visiting friends and questioned them about the odd round cake in there bathroom with the pieces of whatever in it. They proceeded to tell me about your products and their preference for them. They gave me a bar of your oatmeal soap to try and I found it did not dry my skin as much as the Ivory I presently use.

Thank you in advance.

Battle Creek, Michigan

Thank you for your Gardeners' Soap. Love it!!! I am dig in the dirt gardener and your soap does what nothing else has done, takes the dirt stains and leaves my hands soft.

Thank you,

Monroe, Iowa

Greetings, Ya'll --

We're in Saudi Arabia now -- bathing in partially desalinated water. Thank Goodness for gentle Sappo Hill soap.



We love the soap -- we're hooked!



I ran out of your heavenly soap and my skin feels awful! Please hurry... I'm addicted!!

(I loathe all other soaps)


I love the Gardeners' Soap. It got my hands clean in 2 tries. Which is very unusual. I have been looking so long for a soap to get this clay off my hands.

Thanks again,



I had major skin-condition problems (not sure if it was eczema but similar - red, occasionally scaly and constantly itchy to the point I would scratch until I bled) until I started using Sappo Hill oatmeal soap.

-Aurora B.


Just to let you know my boyfriend who is particular about the soap he uses, loves Sappo Hill! He likes it because it is good to his skin without heavy fragrance!

You've got us both hooked now! Thanks!


And I just wanted to mention that nirvana is Sappo Hill Almond soap, Santa Cruz Mountains wine (Felton Empire Vineyards), Richard Braughtigan novel, and lots & lots of bubbles.

There's something good going on in Oregon. Keep up the good work!!

Enthusiastically & blissfully,


I love your soap! I'll never use any other kind for the rest of my life!! This is the first winter that I haven't had dry skin!


Just a small note to tell you how much I enjoy your soap. I also enjoy how long it lasts. thank you for such a fine soap.


Pat Tulelake, California

I have been using your soap for several months now and have really enjoyed it. My skin feels so much better and has not broken out (like it used to) in all that time. Thank you for making such a wonderful product!


-Nancy, North Carolina

Several weeks ago I spoke with you and asked you send me samples and/or any literature you could for my display at the High Desert Home & Garden Show this past weekend. I was more than pleased when I received your shipment. All the material you sent me was great and I appreciate that you sent the materials so promptly and in a quantity that was very beneficial. I appreciate that you and Sappo Hill take such interest in your customers. I use Sappo Hill exclusively myself, and I think it is the best product. In fact I am happy to say that because of Sappo Hill my husband will finally use a natural soap, actually he won't use anything else now.

Ive been using your product for about 6mo or so. Within a week, my skin took on an amazing difference. Gone are all those high-end department store cremes, lotions etc. Thanks for making such a quality product. My favorite is old fashioned oatmeal- followed by almond.

-Mrs. D.L.

The quality of this soap is unmatched in my experience. I use the Unscented Oatmeal, & it is pure and leaves my skin feeling great. I also ordered online for the first time, & both the site, the service and the delivered product are everything I depend on from Sappo Hill's craft. Support a small business, and treat yourself to some excellent lathering!


I've been looking all over for you! I didn't remember the name of your company, I kept thinking lavender hills, whatever, I have found you again and that is WONDERFUL. I love your fragrance free soaps and now I can share your company with friends in MCS groups. Your soap lasts a long time too. It's simply been the best for me. Thanks, now I'm gonna order!


I am allergy free since finding your soap.  I have a better and more fulfilling life since finding your fragrance-free soap.  Formerly, I lived a miserable existence with allergies all year long as all soaps are adulterated with fragrance that causes allergies.  I appreciate that you are in business.   I need your soap to live a better life!  Thanks for being there!


I have used this soap for my eczema for a couple years now and it is phenomenal.


I’m in LOVE with the Oatmeal soap. It smells heavenly, lathers well, and leaves my skin feeling buttery soft. It’s natural, biodegradable, vegan, and cruelty-free.  I now buy them in bulk.


No matter what soaps I try out, I always come back to my beloved almond soap. It’s so creamy that I even use it for shaving. ..completely unpackaged, very reasonably priced... it solved my issues with waste and quality all in one.  I simply love your almond soap!



Sappo Hill soaps are fantastic-I'm a big fan of the lemon gardeners' with cornmeal.




Dear Sappo Hill,

I just received my much anticipated box of your
lovely soaps!  They are wonderful and the
fragrance is subtle and not over perfumed.  The
soap leaves a nice feeling on the skin and not at
all dry!

Thank you for a superior product and your
commitment to staying "green".

Debra E


Dear SHS, I bought your soap this fall in California and I'm crazy about it. Do you also sell in the Netherlands or ship here?


Best regards, M.L.



I have been using the almond scented soap for a long time and I LOVE it.  When I started using this soap, I noticed the added benefit of decreased eczema on my upper arms.  I have always had a mild case of eczema on my upper arms, but nothing that I ever went to the doctor about.  But, I am thrilled that it has lessend greatly since using your soap.  That is not why I bought the soap, but I have enjoyed that benefit.

I buy your soap because I want to use natural products and also products that have minimal packaging, especially plastic packaging.  I buy your soap at our local Whole Foods and it only has a bar code sticker. Thank you!.


I have been using Sappo Hill soap forever. It's all natural, and keeps my skin from being too dry. It's not expensive. I have found it in Whole Foods and some independent natural grocers, including the Natural Grocer in Newburyport, MA. My favorite is oatmeal.

-Kyle C

I’ve just recently discovered this soap at the grocery. And I LOVE it. I have sensitive skin and this soap is so gentle and smells so good.
