Welcome and thank you for visiting
Bourne In Style Handmade Soap Company's online storefront. Bourne In Style, located in Katy, Texas,
evolved from my love of gardening, digging in the dirt and just getting back to
nature. I've always had a creative side and with all the talk of
recycling, I knew there had to be something I could do with all my beautiful
flowers, herbs and plants after the season ended.
At the same time, I
began reading labels more carefully on commercial products and found their
labels either had no ingredients listed, partial ingredients or those long
chemical names that you can't pronounce. With the help of my daughter, a
chemistry major, we began translating those ingredients. Wow! No
wonder so many people have allergies and skin problems. I realized "what
goes on your skin, goes into your body" and I definitely was amazed at what I
was putting into my body all these years.
So after a lot of
research, I decided what grows "naturally" in my garden could be used on my skin
rather than all the products full of chemicals we use. What better way
than to wash off the old and apply the new. So I made my first batch of
natural soap approximately eight years ago. Yes, we do use lye; you cannot
make soap without it. So I was now a "true lyer"! Just like many
other soapers' story, I gave my first soaps as gifts and the more people used
it, the more they wanted. That's when I decided to help others obtain
"a more natural and clean lifestyle."
All my products are handmade in my home-based
workshop. All cold process soaps are made in small batches and are cured for at least
four (4) weeks before sale and are cut by hand. We use quality ingredients
and even some of the dried botanicals, herbs and plants are grown in our garden.
We do not use pre-made bases and most products, other than soap, are made as
they are ordered to assure our customers receive the freshest of products.

a bath with our dog soaps. Oops, don't tell him they're "dog"
soaps - he doesn't know he's a dog.
