Not just for color

We use a variety of botanicals in our soaps at Blue House Soaps. You won't find a dye or colorant that doesn't have a specific purpose among our products.

Our Red Beard soap for him contains turmeric, a botanical of the ginger family that is cultivated primarily in India. Turmeric contains antibacterial and antifungal properties, and acts as an antioxidant. Turmeric can be used to heal minor skin damage that has been caused by acne, eczema, psoriasis, and minor skin rashes.



We combine our original cold process soap recipe with a generous portion of turmeric, poppy seed to gently exfoliate, and a spicy bay rum fragrance. This soap lathers with golden yellow bubbles and rinses clean, leaving skin soothed, smoothed, and refreshed.

For the first time ever, we are offering this luxury soap as our Soap of the Month selection. Pair this with our Shampoo Bar of the month, our Beer Shampoo & Shaving Bar for the ultimate pairing. Visit our Scent of the Month page to view our Red Beard soap, offered at a discounted price for March.
