SallyeAnder was the nickname of my adopted Grandmother, Sadie. She was an honest, sturdy woman of French-Canadian descent who lived on her family farm in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. As one of our closest family friends, she was a wonderful example of hard work and honesty. She was never taken in by what was cheap or trendy. That is why my parents named the company (and me) with her in mind.
Our soaps are not created the same as other soaps, therefore their lather is different. We do not add chemical lather enhancers. Instead we recommend physically creating the lather- use a soft sponge- for rich lather. Or just enjoy the natural creamy texture instead. Lather is NOT crucial for cleansing, it only means that the soap is dissolving rapidly.
Our soaps last 2-3 months with daily use. Due to the soap making process we use, our soaps do not disintegrate quickly if kept out of water. We also use a hard oil base that keeps the essential oil aroma throughout the entire life of the bar.
In the SallyeAnder soap making process, our soap becomes very hard. It can be very difficult to cut and mold, so we’ve designed our own soap cutting device that gives you a large 4.6 ounce bar. It can be hard to hold at first, but as you use the bar, the edges become soft.
We get this questions a lot! Our soaps are made with pure, 100% essential oils. No fillers, or fragrance oils- which makes for a very strong, soothing bar of soap. The best part about the strength of our bars, it that when mixed with water- the scent of the soap becomes even more powerful!

Use Olive Oil Blends
Our olive oil blend base creates a very mild base for your skin. Olive oil is considered an extremely safe oil to use on infant skin, skin irritations, and actually lowers the risk of dermatitis. Our olive oil blend is pressed from ancient vines in Spain and Italy. Our unique blend of olive oil actually holds the essential oils integrity properly in order to provide skin with powerful nutrients. Olive oil also helps our soap last longer than normal handmade soaps, our bars will last 2-3 months in the shower!
If you can’t eat it, we don’t use it! Our products are made with only edible ingredients! Common Ground Farm and Fishkill Farms are just two of the organic local farms we use for ingredients fresh from farms all over the Hudson Valley, here in New York. We make all our products from scratch – we never use manufactured soap pellets or chips!
We also work exclusively with true essential oils, from companies that have only the highest standards for plant life. Pure essential oils in all of our products, which is why each bar is so boldly fragrant!
We promise to not only be handmade in the USA but to generate jobs in our local community. Our employees live, and work here in New York, and throughout the USA. Our products are hand cut, hand wrapped, and labeled and hand shipped by our wonderful staff, each and every day. Our soap makers make 1,000 bars per day!
Coconut oils are dangerous for people with severe allergies, and can be drying to skin. Coconut oil is also very soft, which is why coconut oil soaps disintegrate quickly. We will also never use, petroleum based lather enhancers, or any animal by products. Palm oils, sunflower, grapeseed will also never be used here!
