All About Us
Based in the North Georgia Mountains, Kudzu Soap Company was established with a very simple philosophy of life and work … “have faith, do what you love, if you make a mess, then clean it up, and laugh often.” And we still live by these ideals today.
When we were brainstorming to come up with the name of our business, we were driving and kept noticing just how much Kudzu there was. It was everywhere and covering everything. Well, that is what our vision with our products and services was. We wanted to be everywhere.
Over the years, Kudzu Soap Company has grown into a premier manufacturer of handmade soaps and body care products. We use all natural and nearly natural ingredients when making our products. All of our products are made by hand and in small batches. This allows us to assure that we produce a quality product. We do not take shortcuts when making our products.
What’s the big difference in an All Natural product and a Nearly Natural product? An All Natural product is made using essential oils to scent the product. A Nearly Natural product contains a fragrance oil, or a combination of each, for the scent. Essential Oils come from a plant. Fragrance Oils are man made. Regardless of which products you choose, we assure you that you will love them.
We are so proud to be part of the wonderful world of handcrafted soaps and bath and body products. We are regularly researching and adding new items. We thank you for visiting our website and hope to hear back from you very soon.
Official Company Profile
Looking back on many years of experience, Kudzu Soap Company has quickly become one of the most well-known and leading brands in the handcrafted soap and bath and body industry. The Kudzu Soap Company activities are divided into two divisions. The Handcrafted Soap Division (some 65% of sales) and then our Bath and Body Division. Kudzu Soap Company is a privately owned company based, in the United States, in the historic town of Florence, AL. For the past two years, Kudzu Soap Company has seen record growth financially and a steady increase in the total of number of retail partners that carry the Kudzu Soap Company line.
Business growth at Kudzu Soap Company was bolstered by the positive stable consumer climate in almost all relevant markets and the successful launch of new products. While sales of Kudzu’s Handcrafted Soaps achieved record sales over previous years, there were Innovations in 2013 that also very well received by the market included the new generation of Kudzu’s Body Mousse, and Sea Salt Body Scrub. Product development in general was given a stronger focus by acquiring custom software that is specific to our industry and allows for accurate and precise calculations when creating and producing our products. At year-end 2013, Kudzu Soap Company proudly listed a total of thirty-nine retail partners throughout the Southeast United States.
Our products regional presence was further expanded to include over five countries, including the United States. A supply and sales joint venture for our Distribution Division was set up with Alpharetta, GA based Phillips Distributing, LLC to supply, and begin the introduction of, our product lines to a global consumer audience via the use of the mega-retailer, Amazon.com.
