The Elora Soap Company was founded by John
& Karen Kimpel in 1987 in Elora, Ontario, Canada. Suddenly and very sadly, we lost John in
2008, but Karen is still making soap in the Heritage Village of Paisley,
Ontario, Canada - our home since 1990. Our son, Ben, now 25,
lives here too, and he helps in the
store and at shows. Our century building still keeps us busy with ongoing
renovations. We live on the main street, where we make our soap, grow
many of our herbs, and operate a retail store - its a fun place - you can write on the
wall, chalk on the sidewalk, play
with the tin-toys...oh, and find out a lot about soap - we are open 7 days a week.
Sierra still makes cameo appearances in the store
and at shows, and occasionally even Eva might be
seen behind a counter...

Our products aim to strengthen your dermal (that's your skin) system. The recipes that we have developed, our choice of herbs, and our natural ingredients are all geared to enticing your body to produce the "good" things that it can but may have forgotten how. One of our goals is to get our customers (some of our customers, definitely not J.B.M.,) away from using steroids, like cortisone, and to help their system to get strong enough on its' own to not need them.
Worst things about Elora Soap Company:
- I got another one! None of our
products tastes great.
