Hudson Made soaps at Kai D.

Posted on March 04, 2014 by Kai D. Fan

Hudson Made was founded by Bill Hovard, at his beautiful home in South Kortright, NY.  His philosophy is to return to the roots of America, a time when craftsmanship and quality were valued above machinery and quantity.  For him, quality means knowing a product’s story, which means knowing the artisan who crafted it, knowing from where the product came and how far it traveled, and knowing what makes this product unique and how it can enhance your life.


Worker’s Soap: 

Handcrafted in the Western Adirondacks, this artisanal product provides your hands with a heavy-duty, capable clean.  Endowed with the unburdening aromas of tobacco, cedar and patchouli, Worker’s Soap has a scent that is nothing short of hardy and strapping.


Beard and Shave: 

For the bearded man and his clean-shaven brother, this multio-purpose disc generates a lather that acts as both a gentle beard shampoo and an exceptional shaving cream.  The Citron Neroli Beard and Shave Soap is blended with organic oils of petitgrain, white grapefruit, neroli and cedar wood.  Neroli oil, produced from the delicate blossoms of the bitter orange tree, has been revered for since the 17th century.


Scullery Soap

Made from locally harvested ingredients like rose geranium oil, mineral salt, and all natural beeswax of the finest quality, this cleansing soap, is perfectly suited for hands and forearms hard at work in the kitchen.  Beeswax soap is a harder, longer lasting, tough soap that helps hands resist dryness and irritation caused by frequent washing.
