About Us

Herb Garden Soaps is the creation of Stony Creek, CT resident Carole Barber, who has combined her background as an historian, artist, pastry chef, graphic artist, and entrepreneur to create healthy herbal skin care products that are good for you, and gentle on your skin.

“I truly believe that everything we need to live is provided in our natural environment. I have been a student of herbs and their healing properties my whole life, and even studied ancient herbal remedies while earning my degrees in Archaeology and Theology. My back yard is planted mostly with herbs and flowers which I cultivate and employ for both culinary and herbal health care applications. In creating the soaps and skin care products, I find my Chef’s training, education with food safety, experience creating and adapting recipes and the basic artistic skills needed to be a pastry chef cross over to this more scientific endeavor.” Carole Barber, Soap Maker.

Herb Garden Design LLC’s product sourcing policy considers sustainable agriculture, fair trade, reduced fossil fuel/carbon foot print, organic certification, and local producers as desirable supplier attributes. We do not use synthetic ingredients, animal products, nor do we employ animal testing*. All ingredients are cross referenced with FDA and industry publications to avoid substances that have known toxicity, carcinogens, and known substantial allergic reactions.

Did you know…?

Hey, what’s with the Latin? [Rosemarinus Oleoresin Extract (Rosemary Oil)>The FDA is coordinating cosmetic ingredient labeling with other world regulators, primarily in Asia and Europe. This effort will go a long way towards eliminating hidden ingredients, and misidentified products, and help folks with allergies avoid what ails them. The International Cosmetic Ingredients dictionary (INCI) is the prescribed source for the proper name of the ingredient, and there is where the requirement for the Latin plant name comes from. On our labels, we put the familiar common name in parenthesis as an aid for you to help identify our ingredients. Don’t shy away from the complicated names of ingredients, it actually helps to keep labels honest! We promise not to put anything unnatural, unnecessary, or unwanted in our products. If you need more info about a specific ingredient, feel free to inquire at

Honest disclosure: I do test products on my husband and my family, and they are part of the kingdom animalia, mostly. However, I still claim “cruelty free”!?
