Sweet Air Soapworks is a Veteran owned Handcrafted Natural Soap & Skin Care Products Company headed by Mike & Cindy McGuirk. Mike is a U.S. Air Force Veteran & handles all technical aspects of running Sweet Air Soapworks including all computer stuff, product & scent formulations, marketing, social media, labeling & packaging, set up & tear down of our craft show display and also makes our line of Gourmet Lip Balms & several varieties of specialty soap.
Mike studied natural soap making for almost 1 year before developing his first soap formula. Before co-founding Sweet Air Soapworks, he spent over 25 years in the Information Technology industry (i.e. computer stuff) and over 8 years in the Beauty Supply Industry where he represented some of the most well known beauty, body & skin care products in the U.S. to a large number of upscale Salon’s & Spa’s.
Cindy is a serial crafter and the “better half” of the team. Prior to co-founding Sweet Air Soapworks, Cindy owned & operated a sedan transportation service for over 16 years. On the crafting side, she spent several years making and selling gel candles. Most of her gel candle creations involved beach scenes, as both she and Mike love the beach and spend as much time there as they can.
Cindy is the “glue” that holds everything together & personally makes the majority of our soap & skin care products. She also makes sure that each variety of soap looks & smells delicious. Together, we handcraft all of our soap & skin care products completely from scratch, starting with all natural ingredients, our own proprietary formulas, and the traditional cold process soap making method.
We use only the finest food grade/plant based vegetable oils & butters available, along with essential oils, premium cosmetic grade/skin safe fragrance oils, botanicals, powders, clay's, natural liquids like distilled water, goat’s milk, juices, tea’s, coffee and natural pigments.
To insure that our soaps are long lasting, mild & safe for use, we air cure all of our soaps for a minimum of 4 weeks, except for our Castile soap which air cures for a minimum of 8 weeks or longer. And, with the exception of goat’s milk & beeswax, we don’t knowingly use any animal products in our soaps.
We test every new product formulation we develop personally on ourselves. After curing & testing, if we like the product, then we’ll turn over some samples to a small test team comprised of friends and family. If they give us the “thumbs up”, then we’ll release the new product to our customers.
Our natural soap bars DO NOT contain any harsh detergents, chemicals, sulfates, phosphates, or any nasty stuff and are 100% biodegradable. And since we make our soap totally from scratch, nature adds naturally produced glycerin which drenches your skin with additional moisturizing goodness
The result of our efforts is REAL soap that looks & smells totally scrumptious, along with producing generous amounts of creamy lather to make your skin feel silky smooth and squeaky clean.
Thank you so much for stopping by our website. We invite you to try some of our natural soap & skin care products and see for yourself the difference handcrafted high quality natural products can make for your skin!
Stay clean & soft my friends…
