Goat Milk With Basil Soap
About the Brand
We fell in love with Saipua before we even knew they made their gorgeous, hand-poured, olive-oil-based soaps—when we happened into their extraordinary flower boutique/design workshop in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The mother-daughter team creates all the magic using botanicals, oils, flowers and essences grown at World’s End, their upstate New York farm. (Mom, Susan Ryhanen, has been creating the cold-pressed soaps since the late nineties; daughter Sarah Ryhanen arranges flowers at the Red Hook studio). The (serious) bonus on the nourishing, fantastic-smelling soaps is the absolutely exquisite wrappings they come in—truly, the make an instant, please-everyone-and-everyone gift that never needs to be wrapped.
