The Whys?

  • Who is Ann and what makes her soap original?

Ann retired from her career in nursing after nearly 2 decades to focus on producing healthier, more natural foods and alternatives to the ‘mega-store’ products.

Along the way, with her husband, they founded FoxWood Run Farm, LLC, raising amazingly healthy, hormone and additive free chicken, eggs, rabbit and goats milk.

This naturally led to Ann’s Original Soap, Lotions and More… Hand-crafting soaps, bath bombs and lotions using natural oils, local honey,  and goats milk from her own herd.  Crafting soaps in small batches, by hand, from high quality, natural, and local ingredients means that  you can count on Ann’s Original Soap to be a good, clean, honest bar of soap.

 

  • Why Goats Milk:

Goats milk is wonderful for dry or sensitive skin or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which helps remove dead skin cells, for a healthier, younger looking you.
