Welcome to Oregon Rain Soap! We think you will love our handmade soaps and the other natural products our company offers.
We are Johnna and Rob Zeigler, owners of Oregon Rain Soap and Oregon Rain Naturals, LLC. We are a family owned and operated local business near Portland, Oregon. We make handcrafted, high quality, reasonably priced, and natural products including lotions, bar soap, soy candles, lip balm, and more.
I (Johnna) have been making natural handmade soap since 1990. Soapmaking has been in my family since the 1970’s. I was about nine years old when my mom, Elayne, started making bar soap with natural ingredients. My mom and dad made unscented oatmeal soap for all of my upbringing. I had never used scented soaps until I went to college, but then I had adverse skin reactions to all the store bought soap. After I graduated from college with a teaching degree, I wanted to try making natural, handmade soap for myself. My parents lent me the molds my dad built and taught me how to make soap from my heart. I knew then that I had found my passion and really wanted to make natural soap and sell it, calling it Oregon Rain Soap. But life continued on and I had to set that dream aside. I continued to make unscented soap just for my family and friends.
It wasn’t until I met my husband Rob that I started adding scent to the soap I was making. He knew how much I loved scents, so he bought me my first essential oil; lavender. Rob helped me make my first lavender batch of handcrafted soaps, and it was amazing! Everyone went crazy over it! We have since added a wonderful selection of scented bath and beauty selections with scents from blackberry and Portland rose to lavender and tea tree and more. Rob enjoyed soapmaking with me, so we spent many hours researching and experimenting with different scents and herbs to create new products.
I can honestly say my husband made my dreams come true, because in 2003 we started our Oregon Rain Soap company! Since then we have expanded into a wide variety of handcrafted goods: lotions, candles, lip balms, bath salts, and sprays. And in 2019 we added Oregon Rain Naturals, LLC to expand our product lines.
We use real Oregon rain, filtered for purity. We use natural and eco-friendly ingredients in all our handmade soaps and products.
I hope you feel the love and care we put into all of our handmade creations! We want only to bring the best handmade products to our customers, so we test only on family first. We never test on animals!
