Rare Bird Soap Shop is a small family owned business that specializes in quality handcrafted soaps and skin care products. We are located in the Midwest near Iowa City, Iowa on a small farm where all of our products are made. To insure a high quality result all our products are made in small batches with all natural Vegan ingredients and 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils. We believe in the importance of good quality ingredients and use local, sustainable and organic ingredients whenever possible. Being a small local business we believe in giving that support back to the community so most of our ingredients are purchased locally at an Amish grocery store. All products are handcrafted by Wende Fugate, owner and founder of Rare Bird Soap Shop. We offer our products online at our Etsy shop rarebirdsoapshop.etsy.com and have a shop location at NewBo City Market in the Newbohemian District in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We are also vendors at local farmers markets and most of our products can be found at small shops across Iowa.
