Seawater Soap

Soleseife (pronounced zo-luh-zy-fuh)

A soap made from seawater and coconut oil. Seawater produces a luxurious long lasting, hard bar of soap that feels soft and offers a rich creamy lather.

"If you're lucky enough to live by the sea, you're lucky enough!"


According to old wives and salty sailors, soleseife soap will detoxify the skin, draw out impurities, and make you feel refreshed. 70% of our beautiful planet is covered in seawater and it contains many minerals and organic materials that sustain all manner of life.  While there is no research to back up any rejuvenating effects of seawater in soap, old wives and salty sailors didn’t get to be old wives and salty sailors without knowing a thing or two about good living!

All of our seawater soaps are made with the pristine waters of Saint Augustine Beach, Florida.

All About Us

Homegrown Creations FL was born from love. The love of the sea and the love for my kids. I have lived my entire life near the ocean. I can’t live without it. I have a theory that there are sea people and then there’s everyone else. When my oldest son was a teenager we were having a hard time connecting. I sat him down one day for a little mother-son bonding over a movie that I love and I was pretty sure he'd like. That movie was "Fight Club." My son watched Brad Pitt's character make soap and loved the idea that soap was something you could make! He asked if we could find a soap making class to take. I was interested in making soap but I was far more interested in having something in common with my kid! We took the class and both became hooked. Making soap is a fabulous hobby but there's only so much soap a family can use so I started giving it away to friends.

After a few years of experimentation, I discovered something called sailor soap that is made with seawater. Seawater ?!?! My mermaid heart fluttered at the idea! I was immediately obsessed. I started making all of my recipes with seawater and the difference was amazing! I settled on my favorite recipe and gave a bunch of seawater soap away.  I got such a huge reaction that I decided to try and make a business out of it. The rest is history. 

Seawater is the perfect ingredient for hand made soap. It helps to create a harder, longer-lasting bar,  that gives you all of the fantastic benefits of sea minerals!  I’ve since expanded the line to include whipped body butter, salt scrubs, lotion bars, natural sea sponges and hand made soap dishes. I absolutely love what I create and I hope you do too! Thanks so much for taking a look!
