Lauriche Soaps & Such

Celebrating 10 years of fabulous artisan soapmaking

Lauriche Soaps ‘n Such is a small home based business creating hand made artisan soaps, located in the community of Rayleigh in beautiful Kamloops, BC.

In the summer of 2014, inspired by some fabulous handmade soap I bought at the Kamloops Farmer’s market, I set upon a mission to learn how to make my own,  Now, well over 10,000 bars and counting, I still craft my soap in small batches in my “lab,” a small cubbyhole in the basement that has a workbench and power.

The earliest batches of soap were fragrance free, and the best soap I ever used! It was extremely effective at removing the smell of onion and garlic from food preparation in the kitchen, and I was hooked.

I have experimented with various fragrances, using essential oils and fragrance oils, and have many delicious fragrances that will delight your senses. Some soaps have various clays in them for colouring as well as conditioning.

Our soaps are big and chunky. While most hand made soaps are around 100g (4 oz.) our soaps are usually at least 140g and sometimes heavier.  So you get more for your money! Several of my customers have mentioned to me that they cut the bars in half for two fully functional bars of soap.

Click on the “Shop” link in the top navigation bar, or click here to see what kind of soap we make. If you live in Kamloops, we can arrange for you to come over and pick up your order, or I can deliver it to you for $10.00.

The 2024 Saturday Farmers’ Market has begun!

For the 10th year now, I will be in the same space at the Kamloops Farmers’ Market, up in the schoolyard, across the sidewalk from Saorsa Donuts. I have the classic assortments of fabulous bar soaps, natural deodorant, shampoo bars and lip balm.

I have some new products this season that I have been working on over the winter months.

  • Liquid soap (hand and body wash)
  • Conditioner Bars
  • Shaving Soap

Come on out to the Farmers’ Market and stock up.  I will be there most Saturdays, from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Looking forward to seeing you there!
