Featured Illinois Manufacturer:
Sozo Artisan Soaps
About Company   Decatur, IL

All natural handcrafted soaps and more. I have been making soap for 5 years. I wanted my family to have something better than store bought soap could offer. It is my passion to eliminate as many chemicals from my family's life as I can. It is my passion to be a part of eliminating chemicals from your life, too. Sozo natural handcrafted soaps help in that effort using only beneficial essential oils to scent the soaps, all natural and organic ingredients, and only all natural coloring from clays or plants.
