With Mamoucha handcrafted soaps, cleaning has never felt so luxurious. Since 2009, owner and founder Kate Johnson has been personally making Mamoucha soap in small batches, using FDC-approved ingredients such as Glycerin and Shea butter for premium cleaning power. Her colorful and fragrant artisan soaps are as fun to make as they are to use, featuring a variety of playful designs and patterns to choose from at a price that allows you to have bars at any sink or tub in your home.

Johnson began learning crafts from her mother and grandmother as a child. Decades of skill and passion go into crafting each bar of soap, which she has enjoyed doing since Day 1. Her use of melt and pour soap techniques allows for the perfect mix of color, design and fragrance, resulting in a product that’s both useful and fun. Johnson is a constant presence at Sugarloaf festivals, both near her home in Philadelphia and around the region. Make sure to come visit her and discover how bathing can be fun again!
