Tell us about yourself

I’m Wei-Ke! Creator and Mad Scientist at Green Living Soap Co. I'm thrilled that you stopped by!! I am very excited about creating super fresh botanical hair & bath products in select batches with organic and the finest EcoCert ingredients. I love working with different natural plant oils, butter, essential oils, and phthalate-free fragrances to develop a quality soap product to fit the needs of all people. Practicing the traditional cold process technique was the perfect way to incorporate everything I love and believe in. I was instantly hooked.

​My goal is to provide safe and pure body care products for my family, our customers, and the environment. I strive to have all my products made of all-natural ingredients, oils, and jars of butter with no harsh chemicals. I truly believe in the healing properties of nature. When I can, I grow my own ingredients and process them myself, whether that is by grinding, juicing, or just using my fingers to pull them apart – like calendula. I infused my oils with fresh, wild, medicinal plants I lovingly grow and gather from our large backyard and our 42 acres adjoining it. This is my way of sharing the nourishing beauty of the forest and nature with you.

Soap is my passion, I pour all of my time and love into making high-quality soap and hair care products that I am proud of, and I love sharing them with our customers and friends. There is one thing you can count on – a luxurious bath experience morning, noon, or night from Green Living Soap. To all my customers, I sincerely want to thank you for your patronage and for taking the time to stop by, and I hope you enjoy my products as much as I do! Feel free to follow along on my journey to a greener living lifestyle.

All orders shipped by Green Living Soap are completely plastic-free. We only use Eco-friendly packaging, which has less impact on the environment and totally zero waste. Have a question? Message me, and I'll be happy to work with you! 100% customer Satisfaction is my goal!
