Our products do not intend to cure any skincare issues. If you have a skin condition it is best to seek the advise of a doctor before trying new products. If you have sensitive skin, try a small amount on a small area of your cheek or inside wrist, first. Do not use our soaps that contain clay or apply our skincare products to broken skin. If you have a reaction after using our product, discontinue use and consult a physician.
Possum Hollow Farm Soap is a family owned and operated business. We are dedicated to providing you with natural bath and skin care products while considering the sustainability of the ingredients we use and our carbon foot print on the earth.
Our founders, Robin & Jim Bedford started the company in Lehigh Valley, PA in 1999. They were dairy farmers at the time and their youngest son, Adam, needed to complete a science project, he chose to make soap. After the science project was complete Robin loved it so much that she and Jim decided to continue making soap and gave them as gifts to family and friends. This love blossomed into the desire to build a business and go to craft shows. On the beautiful countryside behind their home was a possum hollow where a family of possums lived year after year. With the cow’s milk readily available it created the perfect recipe and this is where the story of Possum Hollow Farm Soap begins.
When Derek, their oldest son, met Jen and married in 2008, Robin and Jim taught them how to make soap and they gave them out as wedding favors. They thought they had a lot to offer the family business and joined in 2009. In 2011, they decided to move everything to Bucks County, Perkasie PA, their original hometown. They made their soaps and other products in the back of their retail store for 5 years. When Robin and Jim retired and moved to Texas to care for their grandson in 2014. Derek and Jen decided to close the store and move back to New England where they went to college. They found a beautiful home and supportive community in Sanford, Maine where they run the family company together.
Your sense of smell provides your strongest and longest lasting memory and we are sure not skimp on the essential oils in our soaps. However, the scent will not compete with a perfume, cologne or other scent you apply to your body. From the moment you open the shipping box, unwrap the soap, step into your shower to bathe, to that last see-through sliver of soap you are desperately trying to savor every ounce of, you can smell the scent and enjoy the aromatherapy of it.
Customers, business owners and buyers alike, rave about how moisturizing our soaps are, how long they last and that they love the lather. We have received many testimonials that our soap is the best soap they have ever used, how well they sell and how good it makes their skin feel.
