Val doing her thing downtown.

Valerie Jaquith is the woman behind Colorado Real Soap Company, the Crested Butte based natural skin care company that everyone can smell the second they walk into our shop. Val is a naturalist and forager who has been wandering around the Gunnison Valley's forests and mountains for the past 25 plus years. You've probably seen her on the town bus, at farmers market, skiing the mountain, or cruisin' town with her pup. 

She's an artist who has mastered the craft of small batch, artisanal, hand curated products that are safe, simple, and effective. Crested Butte is tough on the skin. Dry winters, tons of sun, and a wind burn here or there make it incredibly important for us to care for ourselves and our furry friends too. Val's company makes that affordable and easy.

Artisanal Liquid Soap...it's so good.

Colorado Real Soap Company consists of 100% bio-degradable artisanal soaps, lotions, body butters, shave cream, cleansing & facial oils, puppy products, salt scrubs, and more. They're all made in small batches to help ensure purity and freshness with mostly organic ingredients and her own personally wildcrafted infused oils made with locally harvested plant material. This mountain gal knows what she's doing. 

Some of our many favorites.

I use the Body Bliss Butter Creme and the Faces Butter Bliss Perfection Scrub on a daily basis and love them. The creme comes with me everywhere. I keep it tucked away in my day bag for when my skin needs a little love. I wake up every morning with the scrub and love the moisture it provides for a day on the hill. 

The Chopwood collection.

Val and Colorado Real Soap Company have it going on. We stock it because we love it. Come in, check it out, and test it out.
