I got a shampoo and conditioner bar at the madisonville market yesterday and I can’t recommend them enough! My hair feels amazing. The shampoo bar lathered so well and I’m so impressed with the conditioner results. I’ve been looking for bars to switch to so I can move away from traditional plastic packaging. I will be buying more in the future! Thank you!

I work in grease rust and grime every day. Not even Go Jo takes rust off my hands. One of the mixtures they make does. 5 Stars to this company.

Owner and Creator

In 2019 alot of things changed. The world changed. Like many of us, I found myself online trying to drown myself in entertainment. I guess you could say I fell down a YouTube hole. For a long time I had itchy skin, and I already knew I was sensitive to detergents. I decided to give soap making a try. And found that I had so much soap in the house I couldn't use it all in years but I had found the solution to my skin sensitivity. So what to do? I decided to open Silver Branch Soapworks. Since that time, the company has expanded to include many more handcrafted from scratch products. And now I bring those products to you. May you use them well.


Items may be purchased online or at various markets in the Southern Louisiana area, most commonly at the Hammond, Louisiana on Saturdays between 8 am and 12 pm. Market attendance will be on the Silver Branch Soapworks Facebook page.
