Moccasin Bend Soap Company is a small family-owned company started by Dave and Ashley. We make homemade small-batch bath, body, and beard care products in our home. Everything we make is used by our family and friends so we work hard to make sure it’s the best!
How did you get started?
Ashley was watching Youtube and ran across a soapmaking video. She watched it and another 20 more and before she knew it she was doing research on soapmaking herself. So we bought some lye and olive oil, mixed it up and poured it into a paper-lined vanity drawer to see how it goes. She decided pretty quick that plain white Castille soap was not what she wanted to make. We ordered some colorants and fragrance oils and it went crazy from there.
How did you come up with your name?
We wanted a name that wasn’t too masculine or feminine and let people know we were in the Chattanooga area. Dave loves the river and Moccasin Bend just sounds cool so we went with that. We are also now known as Moccasin Bend Beard Company. Our logo is the river in a circle with the stars from the Tennessee state flag.
What about the beard stuff?
Dave has had a beard off and on for years. He’d tried several different brands and wasn’t happy with any of them. We did some research on oils and other ingredients and started testing. It wasn’t long before we had a product that he was happy with. We had some friends try it, got some feedback, and made some changes. We recommend you use some type of beard oil and/or balm in your beard. Any oil is better than no oil. Ours is better than most.
Thank you for supporting our family business. We see every new customer as an addition to our family and friends. We love knowing that our products make your lives a little better in some way.
