ABOUT US

Napa Soap Company was founded by Napa Valley local, Sheila Rockwood. Having grown up in the Napa Valley, Sheila wanted to create a product which utilized ingredients made in the Napa Valley. She also wanted to create a product which could truly work - one which others could enjoy and use. Sheila was also very conscious in creating a small business which she could manage in addition to raising her three sons - all under the age of 5.

Combining her interest in the environment, aromatherapy and a prolific supply of lavender, Sheila discovered that soap offered a natural outlet for her talents. After researching the therapeutic benefits of a by-product of the local wine industry, cold-pressed grapeseed oil, Sheila decided to use this wonderful ingredient throughout her line. After nearly two years developing the right combination of essential oils and natural ingredients, Sheila started to sell her Napa Soap Company products to select accounts here in the Napa Valley.

Napa Soap is hand made in very limited quantities-less than 50 bars at a time. Enjoy Napa Soap Company products! Since we have 3 children growing up in our community, a portion of our proceeds are donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Helena and Calistoga, a nonprofit organization committed to serving the needs of school aged children in the upper Napa Valley. For more information on this excellent organization, please follow this link. We also support numerous organizations in our community that benefit youth.
