Soap making is our craft. We specialize in making all-natural soaps from crafted beer. We let the beer speak for itself by letting the natural beer color, scent, and consistency guide our making process. Our soaps contain olive oil, sustainable palm oil, coconut oil, and other natural ingredients. They are fragrance-free unless otherwise indicated. We carefully select our natural raw materials and suppliers. We are members of the Essential Depot Greener Life Diamond Club which caters to companies that value kindness, and social responsibility. We are also proud members of the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild, the only international non-profit trade association serving the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry.
We also make silky and bubbly soaps from hops. These soaps may be scented or scentless.
Ten Inch Smile Soap Works online shop will open in early 2023.

Beer and Hop Soap Making Process
All our soaps are artisan hand-made by Jeannie and Adam, Ten Inch Smile Soap Work owners. We use the cold and hot process methods in our beer soap making.
For our beer soap, we have found that the hot process method works best. The end product is slightly rustic and rugged looking, allowing us to simulate the shape of a beer in a mug. The bars are sturdy, all-natural, and long-lasting. We have brewed beer soaps of the following styles: IPA, Stout, Porter, Pilsner, Lager, Pale Ale, Sour, Belgian, and Wheat Beers. We offer these soap beer styles in unscented and scented varieties. The unscented soaps are fascinating since the natural scent of each beer permeates the bars. Each beer gives the bars a unique and distinctive smell naturally created by the beer's special ingredients. The scented bars are delicious smelling and add pleasure to our senses. The hot processed beer soaps cure for a minimum of two weeks.
For our hop soap, we use the cold process method. This method yields the best product for hop soaps. These hop soaps are very mildly exfoliating; they are more of a caress on the skin. We use the Azacca, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Citra, East Kent Golding, Galena, Mosaic, Styrian Golding, UK Fuggle, and Waimea hop varieties. Each hop has a unique consistency and aroma that makes the soap's distinctive personality. The cold processed beer soaps cure for a minimum of four weeks. We offer unscented and scented soap bars.
Our most popular scented bar include fragrance oils of Beer, Tobacco, Bourbon, Rhum, All Spice, Lavander, Orange, and Hickory BBQ Smoke.
We recommend you restrain from the urge to taste our soaps. They are not for consumption.
