Sixteenth and Main was created to offer you luxury artisan bath and body products, handmade to meet your skincare needs. Our Artisan (Handmade) Soaps are proudly crafted in small batches to ensure quality and freshness.
When crafting all-natural artisan soap, we include pure and organic essential oils with a variety of clays and/or spices for color. We also feature artisan soaps in high quality, phthalate free fragrance oils with natural and/or cosmetic colorants. The intent of our brand is to encompass natural elements, whimsy and sophistication while remaining true to our customers unique, personal needs.
We combine a custom blend of skin moisturizing butters and oils with organic coconut milk, goat milk, buttermilk and/or heavy cream to condition the skin. Instead of using harsh chemicals found in commercial soap, we use sea salt to harden soap; surfactants are replaced with sugar or honey to create bubbles. These fine ingredients form a chemical reaction with lye to create soap for all skin types.
Soaps are hand cut then cured for 4-6 to enable the lye to neutralize and allow the liquid ingredients to evaporate, leaving their fatty properties behind. Each batch is pH tested to ensure we produce gentle, high quality products.
Aside from artisan soap, we create an array of bath treats, lotions and candles that compliments any bath ensemble. Treat yourself or gift it to someone you care about.
If you haven't experienced an artisan soap, you’re in for a rewarding treat.
Note: All of our ingredients comply with usage rates outlined by IFRA and laws governed by FDA Cosmetic Regulations.
