handmade soap & other personal care
Outlaw Soaps are handmade in Colfax, California by Mr. Russell Vincent, our co-owner, co-founder, and all around badass.
We taught ourselves how to make soap, and since those early days (in 2013), we have developed many time-honed techniques that enable us to make larger batches of the finest handcrafted soaps around, in terms of composition, scent, and artistry.
All our soaps are made with a natural combination of oils (avocado, coconut, olive, and castor) and are free from chemical hardeners (so be sure to keep your handmade soaps out of standing water). We are 100% against animal testing (our dogs are woefully unbathed) and our soaps are vegan (our colognes and lip balms contain beeswax).

When you order from us, you're ordering something that we designed, created from scratch, (often) cured, hand-labeled, and lovingly packed.
In Colfax, California (our home) Outlaw Soaps has not only created jobs (and hopefully will continue to create more), we've also increased the number of packages our rural post office handles, which is accounted for in their reporting. Your money has paid for our photographer, has bought ice cream from the newly opened candy shop, and even has paid for health insurance for us.
What the Amazon / Whole Foods deal means to a handmade business like ours
Posted on June 19 2017
On Friday, news broke that Amazon is buying Whole Foods Market for $13.7 Billion. This prompted vast speculations of the death of the handmade middle market, to USA Today articles about disruption in grocery and disruption in retail.
But what does it mean to us?
Well, the truth is, we don't know yet.
We can speculate like crazy (which we'll do in this post, in a bit), but the truth is, we don't have any insider information aside from our own experience. And our own experience in the past 5 months has been radically different than our experience in the previous 5. This is a vastly changing market, and we are corks on the water of change.
Outlaw Soaps has many horses in this race.
