Gisele Bridges, Owner of Island Soap


Island Soap Company began in 1984 on Deer Isle, Maine. I had never made soap before but I jumped at the chance when the company went up for sale and now continue to make it the old fashioned way on our five generation coastal Maine farm. As a Holistic Health Coach and organic gardener and farmer I value caring for the environment as well as my health and my greatest love is educating others on natural living. I take great pride in offering a line of natural soaps without synthetic fragrances or artificial ingredients. I don’t just sell soap but offer education on why we should care as much about what we put “on” our body as what we put “in” our body. Each bar is hand made with only food grade ingredients and hand wrapped in colorful tissue and a label created from original artwork depicting our beloved Maine coast. One label is of Stonington, a quintessential fishing village not far from where Island Soap first began.
