All of our products are carefully handcrafted in small batches to ensure freshness with the finest all-natural, organic and therapeutic quality ingredients.
Our mission is to freshly handcraft healthful and beneficial skincare that is blissful and comforting to use and made as naturally as possible.
We strive to have the highest ecological standards. Among a few of our efforts:
• All of our products are made with Earth friendly, all-natural, 100% vegetarian, organic and biodegradable ingredients.
• All of our Soap Bars and many of our products like our Shampoo Moons (shampoo bars), Hair Conditioning Bars, Shaving Cream Soaps, Beard Shampoo and Solid Lotion Bars are designed to create ZERO WASTE and do not require a plastic bottle that would later need to be recycled.
• Our packaging is minimal and almost all of our products are packaged in glass or aluminum containers which, unlike plastic, are truly recyclable or reusable.
• All of our shipping materials are recycled or reused.
• We source our ingredients and supplies as locally as possible.
NONE of our products, nor their ingredients, are ever tested on animals!
We believe that a bath can cure almost anything, that nature has the answers, that scents can make you happy and that care of the body is care of the soul.
Em’z Blendz Soap Co is a family owned and operated natural soap, bath, body and skincare company located in Southern Oregon. It is run by a husband and wife lead team. Emily Whitlock, the CEO and original founder of Em’z Blendz Soap Co., is a native Oregonian, an artisan, herbalist, aromatherapist, master soap crafter and cosmetic formulator with over twenty years of experience specializing in natural and organic products. She is the driving force behind all the creative development of The Blendz. Andy Whitlock, her husband and Co-CEO, (also a seventh-generation Oregonian), is the technical engineer behind all the logical parts of the business. He is the graphic designer for all of the labels, marketing materials and digital media. He is also the editor, photographer and website developer. Together they symbiotically bring their right and left brains together to collectively create and mutually manage all aspects of small business operations. Every single original product from inspiration to research and from blending raw ingredients to the final packaging; it’s all handcrafted by them for you. They truly love working together and hope everyone who experiences the cleansing goodness they create, feels a little bit of bliss each time they use any of Em’z Blendz products.
The original concept of Em'z Blendz began in 1998 in Emily's kitchen, where she discovered the art and magic of soap making. As an artist who lives through her senses, she was inspired by her love of nature's scents, her creative spirit and intuitive sense of comfort.
Soap-crafting, the study and practice of Aromatherapy and Herbalism, as well as natural therapeutic care of the body and spirit, became the conduit for her artistic passion. Em'z very first soaps and Blendz were lovingly created as nurturing, wholesome gifts and healing remedies for family members and friends with sensitive skin and other skin conditions. This energy and enthusiasm for creating beautiful, healthy and therapeutic gifts is still infused into every product.
Now, over twenty years later, Emily and Andy continue to carefully hand-craft and oversee each and every batch, ensuring a consistent standard of high quality, all natural products. Jaden, their daughter, a talented young artist, sketches many of the pictures for product labels. Nathan, their son, a college student and gifted athlete, often spends summers helping in The Soap Lab, cutting and wrapping soaps.
Every single recipe has been created through hours of forethought and with true love and passion for producing meaningful products. We hope that they bring comfort, enjoyment and a little bonus bliss; that somehow the delight we feel while creating them will also be felt by each individual who uses them. We hope you will find Em'z Blendz natural bath and body products to be the very best you've ever purchased and that you-
Live healthy and happy from the skin to within... ™ ~Emz
