Our Story

Our story:

Necessity is the mother of invention

- Plato

When my youngest son was five years old he experienced a mild case of eczema.
His condition was more uncomfortable for him than dermatologically serious. Commercial bath products contained chemicals and preservatives that only increased the irritation he felt after bathing. Many of these bath products – although advertised as ‘gentle’ contained chemicals with qualities similar to those found in detergents. 

If my wife couldn't find the best product for my child, she would make it herself. Let me describe Radha, the soapmaker. Professionally, she is a senior engineer for a large software company. She works in quality assurance, which requires an adherence to rigorous standards. Secondly, in the kitchen, she is a cook who insists on the freshest, most flavorful ingredients available at the local market. She brings these characteristics to making our soap products.

She made soap out of completely natural and organic ingredients that relieved my son’s 
eczema. She then experimented with various essential oils, butters, and other ingredients to develop her own recipes. After testing on kind friends – and further refinement,we developed first, a soap product line, then lotions, scrubs and balms, and shaving products (shampoos are next).

Two years later, Lexington Soaps started producing high quality bath products that you will find invigorating in the morning, and soothing in the evening.
