A handcrafted bath and body brand, established in 2013 in Newport, Rhode Island by husband and wife duo Jake and Steph Kopper. Shore Soap Co. channels their inspiration from the sea to create quality products that portray nature and simplicity. With a wide range of natural nutrient-packed products to chose from, there’s something for everyone.

Initially formed in the kitchen of their Newport Rhode Island home, Jake and Steph began experimenting with cold-process soap making. This exposure to the world of handcrafted personal care items drove them to expand beyond soap and continue formulating other new products. Their goal was to create high-end goods using natural premium ingredients while also keeping them affordable. Shore Soap Co. products can be found at their flagship retail location, online and in over 90 independent retail shops. Watch us progress on instagram and follow us on facebook.

Our Newport Rhode Island Store

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. I am convinced that there can be luxury in simplicity. I wanted to dress the woman who lives and works, not the woman in a painting. It’s hard to balance everything. It’s always challenging. My relationships with producers or photographers – these are relationships that took years. I can’t get sucked into that celebrity thing, because I think it’s just crass. My aim is to make the poor look rich and the rich look poor. Vanity is the healthiest thing in life. I believe that my clothes can give people a better image of themselves – that it can increase their feelings of confidence and happiness. You can hide so much behind theatrics, and I don’t need to do that any more. I don’t really know how to do casual clothes.

Overseeing our first batches of soap in our Newport home, Bailey was there from the very start. She always sought out new shorelines to explore, swimming holes to retrieve in, and oceans to oversee. She brought us to the shore year-round, opening our eyes to how much plastic collects along our local coastlines — inspiring us to reduce our plastic packing and #cleantheshore. A product developer and frequent user of our Tick’d Off Dog Shampoo. The beach held a special place in her heart, and she brought us there regardless of the weather — wind, sleet, snow, rain, or shine.
