About Us

Lorie Norman For the Love of Suds began in Bristol Virginia by Lorie Norman. Lorie had been making handmade items for her household for years (detergents, cleaners, bath products), because she did not like the harsh chenmicals in the ones she was buying at the store. After making several bars of soap and even giving some as Christmas presents she realized that they were a big hit. Lorie decided to begin making soaps to sell. Lorie is a computer programmer turned stay-at-home mom with 4 wonderful kids.

Bristol is a unique city located in the heart of the Appalachian region, where many talented craftsmen are found. For the Love of Suds makes use of the local market for product ingredients such as herbs, essential oils and goat milk. All our supplies are selected for the best quality. We dont make anything that we wouldnt use on our own family. In fact, all our products are tested on humans and are used in the homes of our relatives and friends.

For the Love of Suds is sure you will appreciate the time, love and quality ingredients that go into each of our lovely creations. In fact, if you don't enjoy your product for whatever reason we will gladly replace it or give you your money back.

Thanks for shopping with us. Once you try our handmade soap and bath items, you will never buy manufactured produts again!
