For Deborah Lukasik and Chris O’Shaughnessy, soap making is not a lost art.
It is very much in the present.
The Southampton-based artisans are taking their handcrafted, all-natural soaps to the heart of the village with a new shop at 30 Jagger Lane, opening Saturday, June 16, at 12 p.m. with a ribbon cutting, where the first 50 customers will receive a swag bag.
“We are proud of the integrity of our company and the support we have received from our family and the East End community,” Lukasik and O’Shaughnessy said in a press release. “We are looking forward to celebrating with you at our grand opening and look forward to what this next chapter will bring.”
The shop will feature custom-scented products from an aroma bar, and will reflect a newly expanded product line for the bath, body and home, which uses local and organic additives whenever possible.
They will offer a community supported soap membership, and hidden memberships will be printed on select undersides of soap labels within the store, “to add an element of fun,” a press release said.
In 2012, the Southampton Soap Company officially launched its all-natural soap line made in small kettle batches. Their soaps are 100-percent vegetable based, scented with essential oils, adorned with herbs and botanicals, and cut by hand.
