Our Signature Soap Collection
We have formulated a very special soap! Most soaps are made with water, goat milk or another form of liquid to mix with the lye that is needed to convert oil into soap. We have taken sap from birch trees on our Northern Ontario property to make this very special kind of soap.
Using birch sap in our soap has created a soap that has a soft and creamy lather and it feels luxurious on the skin. To learn more about our Birch and Chaga Tea collection of soaps, click below!
Who are we?
Dutch Dragonfly is the business side of a country girl who wanted to be able to provide all natural soaps, that are gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin.
Making soap was something I wanted to do for many years, but never had the courage to attempt it. I had someone in my life who encouraged me to try making soap, and I decided I would, "when I had time." I was a full time college student at the time, with two teenagers at home, and a husband who worked full time. With the home life commitments I didn't think I had the time, so making soap was set aside.
The desire to make soap never left me, but I also never seemed to have time to give it a try. In the late fall of 2020, I decided it was time, and started doing my research and learned how to make soap. I mixed up and poured my first batch of soap on Dec 31, 2020 ... it wasn't pretty, but it was something. I wondered why I hadn't taken the time to try it before then!
Dutch Dragonfly was born in April 2021. I have teamed up with another family member to be able to bring you our products. Due to skin sensitivities in our family, we decided it was best to focus on keeping our soap gentle so that others with sensitivities will be able to use our products confidently.
We wanted to make sure that we had something extra special for ourselves and our customers. With a little bit of experimentation, and a lot of testing, we came up with our signature Birch and Chaga Tea collection. Using birch sap and chaga that have been sustainably harvested from the forest on our northern Ontario property, we were able to formulate a line of soap that lathers beautifully.
We have also expanded beyond soap so that we can provide a product to the men out there as well. We have amazing beard care products for the men who love to have full beards, short beards, goatees, or are wanting to start growing a beard. We also have a shaving line, with a shave soap and after shave conditioner. We will be expanding our men's lines to include products for full skin care or beard care.
We look forward to being able to get soap into your hands, baths, showers and anywhere else you choose to use it.
