Trusted in the Bay Area since 1995

We are a small, family owned business specializing in supplies for local soapmakers, and we also sell supplies for bath bombs, lotions, beard oils, etc.

David Critchfield started Mission Peak Soap in 1995 as a means of using his beeswax and honey in soap. Along the way, he taught classes and developed SoapQuick “The Brownie Mix for Soapmakers” in 2007. After decades of lifting heavy boxes, David retired and sold Mission Peak Soap to his production manager and former student, Shirin Samiljan. She has a background in chemistry, retail, politics, and once ran off to join a circus (really!). Shirin has expanded Mission Peak Soap’s services to include custom master-blending (masterbatching) of oil blends, and she continues to produce custom soap for private label customers.

At Mission Peak Soap, we are primarily soapmakers, and we only stock products that we have tested and used ourselves. Our signature product is SoapQuick, a handcrafted blend of vegetable oils for the beginner or professional. In addition, we offer a range of ingredients for lip balms, bath bombs, and other creations. We teach classes as well! (Check the Events calendar)

Our oils are fresh, and we source locally whenever possible. We stand behind our products and their quality. Some of our customers make only one batch of soap or lotion bars a year, and others are professionals selling at boutiques, farmer’s markets, and natural food stores all over the country. We produce soap for retail or wholesale purchase, and we specialize in custom manufacture of cold process soap. We are easiest to contact via email, as our in-shop hours vary depending upon production.
