Every Beekman 1802 product contains goat's milk—a key ingredient renowned for its non-irritating, soothing qualities. Beyond the botanical formulations, Beekman's passion for purity is also reflected in its minimalist yet elegant packaging.

Beekman 1802 Face Wipes offers convenient skin care while on the go. Gently textured, the wipes are ideal for removing makeup, dirt and grime. Lightly scented and perfectly suited for sensi- tive skin, Beekman 1802 Face Wipes are offered in Apricot and Honey Tea, Honeyed Grapefruit, Pure Goat Milk, and Honey and Orange Blossom. A floral motif embellishes the pretty package. SRP: $7 FinchBerry Soapery Ashley Robertson, founder 352.358.8016, Leaving her corporate role far behind, entrepreneur Ashley Robertson created a successful business venture that mingled two of her passions—crafting soaps and embellishing cakes. When she had some downtime from her previous position as a paralegal, Robertson would create darling soaps in her basement in Washington, D.C. She often utilized cake-decorating tools and techniques to fashion these color- ful treasures. The artist even infused her soaps with some traditional baking oils such as olive oil, sunflower oil and coco- nut oil. Eventually, she began selling the colorful soaps at local farmers markets, and when the orders started pouring in, this visionar y resigned from her corporate gig to focus on making Finch- Berry a full-time endeavor. The FinchBerry brand, which was founded in 2009, is currently in more than 1,500 retail locations throughout the world. On the menu are some enticing, colorful gourmet soaps that resemble mini desserts. The collection in- cludes Sweetly Southern (honeysuckle scented), Sweet Dreams (lavender and vanilla), and Cranberry Chutney (cran- berry, chopped apple and a hint of luscious blackberry). Crafted from "scratch" with food-grade oils, the decadent soaps contain shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, sun- flower oil and palm oil. The soaps are vegan-friendly and gluten-free. SRP: $9, 5-oz. bar SallyeAnder 315.343.0793, Well before America began "going green" SallyeAnder made a commitment to formulate its products as ecologically as possible. For more than 30 years, the company has been churning out handmade American soaps that boast ingredients that are sourced both locally and globally. The company traces its history back to Minetto, New York, in 1982, when Gary Austin created the first product—an olive oil castile soap developed for his son who was allergic to other soaps on the market. Decades later the family-owned com- pany, which is now based in Beacon, New York, still celebrates the success of one of its original soaps. The soap, dubbed "Hogwash," evolved as a means of eliminating waste and recycling. Made with fragments of soap leftover from the production of other soap bars, Hogwash also offers a dash of organic cornmeal for extra scrub appeal. Beyond being gentle enough to clean children's hands, Hogwash also multitasks as a stain remover. Offered in white, brown, pink, green, purple, yellow and tan, each bar is unique and offers its own scent. SRP: $7.95, 6-oz. bar Spinster Sisters 844.SPINSTER, ext. 2 The Spinster Sisters' dream took flight in 1994 when Kelly Perkins realized that she yearned for an alternative to the "witch's brew of chemicals" she believed many contemporary skincare collections represented. After studying soap mak- ing, Perkins whipped up a few batches to bestow as gifts. After some initial success selling at a craft fair, Perkins decided to leave her day job as a busi- ness analyst so that she could focus on Spinster Sisters. The collection later expanded from fine bath soap into shav- ing products, moisturizing lotions, salves, soaks, scrubs and more. On tap is the Pandan Porter Beer Soap, which contains rich cocoa, vanilla extract and coconut oil. Hops and barley harvested from the brewing process are also added to the soaps and work as a gentle exfoliation.
