The Story Behind Foxcraft Goods
Behind every great brand, there's a story.
Ours began in 2016 when our founder, Ashton, made her first batch of hot processed soap. It was plain colored and lightly scented, a little crumbly, but it made her skin feel soooo nice. From then on, she was hooked. She dropped her other plans. She stayed up all night making soap. She skipped classes, missed meals, devoured every book and online resource on making soap, and just could not quit. Realizing that the knowledge she had amassed could be helpful to other people, she started selling soap, and eventually lotion, body scrubs, lip balm, and more.
Here's a picture of Ashton in 2017 displaying her handmade creations in Ferdinand, Indiana, for the annual Folk Festival. The brand has had some changes since then!
Making amazing, gentle products for your body is what keeps us up at night (sometimes literally!). We pride ourselves in using quality, mostly cold-pressed oils and butters, and avoiding the soapmakers' easy way out with palm oil. We use a blend of essential oils and fragrances for scent, and natural mica and botanicals for colorant.
Our products are free of parabens, phthalates, and animal cruelty.
We proudly make products that combine nature & SCIENCE, e.g., naturally occurring ingredients and man-made synthetics, that are proven to be gentle and skin safe. We thoroughly investigate our ingredients and the supply chain that provides them. You will not find B.S. misinformation here!
Foxcraft Goods was originally formed to provide simple, gentle soap and body products for conscious consumers seeking skincare products that make them feel beautiful, whole, and honest. Since 2017, we have expanded to include items for the face and hair, including lip balm, scrubs, clay masks, and more.
What motivates us:
-Creating products that our skin (and yours) will love
-Avoiding ingredients with questionable harvesting/sustainability standards
-Preserving our planet for future generations by using less packaging and waste than mainstream cosmetic and soap suppliers
Foxcraft Goods is a woman-owned, very small business based out of Indianapolis, Indiana.
