A Little About Us

Scum Soaps Creator and Chef
I grew up in a very artistic and creative environment. Anything we needed– we made. Everything from our house to the furniture inside it, our cookies, pastas, jams, quilts, and clothes. It was only a matter of time before we began to make our own soap; And now that we’ve started, there’s no stopping us....

New Product: Guest Soaps

Honey Almond Guest Soap

Lavanula Guest SoapHoney Almond Guest SoapForest Floor Guest Soap

Our New guest soaps are now available throgh our Etsy and Opensky Stores! You can find links to these sites through our Shop page.

We designed our guest soaps to be small and elegantly packaged, perfect for counter top decor or small gift items. They even work exceptionally well gifted with other Scum Soaps products, or as a set of 3, 5, 10… You get the idea. We made sure these soaps had a strong fragrance- strong enough to fill the room they are displayed in, or to pack a punch when used. We know you buy soap for the scent- and who doesn’t hate a soap that loses its fragrance?!? We can assure you that these soaps will not!

As a small, handcraft-based business we like to roll our new products continuously! Make sure to check back often and see what we have whipped up for you.

If you would like to hear about new items and exciting features, make sure to subscribe to our Newsletter! The subscription box is found on our Home page. Don’t worry- we honestly don’t have the time to send you 2 emails a week. We do our best to not end up in your spam box!

Forest Floor Scrub



When maker Briana Petruzzi first attempted making a sugar scrub, she was loosely following a common recipe she found online. “I quickly realized didn’t have all the ingredients needed, so I started to improvise. The final product ended up being nothing like the initial formula, but it was absolutely amazing! Over the years, I’ve done some minor tweaking in the formulation, but that mistake is still the foundation for our sugar and oil skin treatment.”

Forest Floor is a fresh, clean scent inspired by the Appalachian Mountains. The scrub is handcrafted from natural granulated and large crystal sugar cane to provide two levels of exfoliation.

Wedding Favors

Wedding Favors


This listing is for a set of 50 small soaps for favors, labels customized to say whatever you would like. Just keep in mind that more text = smaller font. Our company logo and the soap scent are labeled on the back side. We can also do a photograph, logo, design, etc. Whatever you may have in mind!

These favors are perfect for your rustic, barn, or historically themed wedding!

Each soap weighs approximately 1.63oz / 46g. Since they are 100% handmade, hand cut, and also packaged by hand, weights and sized will vary slightly. I do my best to ensure each piece is consistent with each other.

If you would like a quantity other than 50- please message me for details and a custom listing!

The scent and color of the soaps are to be discussed, and are ultimately your decision, based on the theme and time of year of the event. Please message me with any ideas you have, as well as relevant information.
Any materials needed that are outside of my collection (which is pretty extensive) would cost an extra fee, based on the materials needed- this basically means a fragrance or essential oil bought specifically for your event.

Please allow a 5-6 week turn around time for custom-made soap favors, as that is the amount of time needed for the soaps to cure. Only cured soaps are safe for use.

If you are using soaps already in my collection (pre-made), the wait is 1-3 weeks from time of order till they are in your posession.

Our soaps are made from Olive Oil, Soybean Oil, Cottonseed Oil, Castor Oil, and Coconut Oil. Please message me if any of these ingredients become an issue.

Dusk Collection




Dusk- the moment when daylight turns to night, and the world seems to change in ways we can only feel. The mystery of darkness is the primary inspiration for this classy fragrance. Indulge your body and home in deep masculine notes such as patchouli, amber, and musk. You will never be the same.

TRADITIONAL COLD PROCESS SOAP: Our bar soaps are handmade unlike any other on the market. We use the old fashioned cold process method which is ideal for dry skin, or for those who just love a good moisturizing soap. Our signature one-of-a-kind formula contains ingredients such as Cocoa butter and Coconut oil- both providing more benefits for your skin than we can count. These ingredients also make an extremely rich, lathery bar of soap that lasts longer than you would expect.SUGAR & OIL SKIN TREATMENT: Indulge yourself in over 1 pound of our Sugar & Oil skin treatment, and bring the spa to you. Our scrubs are handcrafted from natural granulated and large crystal sugar cane to provide two levels of exfoliation at the same time. Nothing leaves your skin softer, healthier, or happier.

BODY BUTTER: Just as the name implies, our signature Body Butters look and feel just like silky smooth butter for your skin. They are made solid in order to last longer and minimize waste. We hand craft our Body Butters from unrefined shea butter and unbleached beeswax to keep our products as natural as possible. Their compact size enables you to hold the butter right in your hand, which is also convenient for traveling. Massage into your skin and fall in love! We’ve put our heart and soul into this stuff, and it shows.

LUXE SOY CANDLE: Not only can you lather our products onto your skin, but our unique scents can also fill your home. Our candles are made from 100% natural soy and vegetable waxes, so they burn clean and with minimal soot- keeping your home free of harmful fumes and toxins. Our luxurious jars also add a touch of class to your home décor, and make the perfect one-of-a-kind, unique, handmade gift.
