Testimonies

"All the products I've purchased have been beneficial in halting skin irritation, which prescription creams didn't even help. Love all the scents and natural ingredients. My first introduction to Bend Company was a Christmas basket with products from my daughter in-law. Since then I've purchased more bar soaps, milk baths and lotions. Love all I've tried!!!"

-Linda Nielsen


"I bought a bar of your soap when you were at the Art and Wine Festival in Mountain View a few weeks ago. I have fallen in LOVE with this soap! I have had a rash on my shoulder for the past 8 years, and the dermatologist could not tell me what it was. After using this soap, that rash has completely disappeared!!"

-Alysha Madon


“I wanted to give you my little testimony. I am 43 years old and have struggled with acne the last 2 years. I have been put on hormones, given antibiotics, and spent hundreds, if not a couple thousand dollars, on various products. I am part of a co-op (Azure Standard) and just ordered the soap randomly. I have been using Pure 'n Natural not even a week and my skin has almost 100% cleared up. Crazy! I ordered a bunch more this morning to give out to relatives.

I seriously cannot believe my skin has cleared up in less than one week of using the soap! I have been telling everybody! I have struggled for the last 2 years and have been on medication, but today was my first day not taking the antibiotics. So happy!”

-Amy Christle


"I have been using your soap as a face wash every night and morning for close to two weeks now. My face has never looked better. I have struggled with acne my whole life and now I can see it disappearing more and more everyday. Keep doing what you're doing and don't change a thing! I am buying for life!"

-Jill Skordahl


"I've suffered from itchy skin for several years and have tried all kinds of creams and lotions, as well as hydrocortisone, steroid creams, and anti-fungal creams (without any kind of long-term relief). Since using your soap (June of 2013), I've had COMPLETE relief from the itching. I never thought changing soaps could make such a difference! Amazing! I started with the Pure n' Natural, but have branched out to some of the other scented soaps. All of them are great!"

"I've been using the soap daily and I've noticed a drastic improvement in my psoriasis on my elbows. It's only been a week and most of the flakes are gone. I've even noticed a reduction in the size of the effected area.

I also took your advice and used it as a shampoo. I used to have a flaky scalp and nothing worked...until now. I tried numerous dandruff shampoos with no results. Several days with the goat milk soap and my head is virtually flake free.

I want to thank you for producing such a simple, natural product that produces results quickly and effectively."

Charles Cole


"A friend of mine recently gave me a bar of the citrus mint soap from Bend Soap Co. Wow. I'd never used goat's milk soap before, I'm a die-hard dove body wash girl. I have eczema and a less common related skin condition which wrecks havoc on my hands and feet. I've been using my magic goat soap for about a week so far and am in love! I'm even using it to shave because my skin doesn't get so irritated with daily abuse, no razor burn! Thanks for creating a great product!"

Rachael Wood


"I have been getting numerous compliments from all my friends and co workers about my improved skin complexion. My face is glowing. The bumps on my forehead and cheek areas are diminishing. My mother has been hounding me for a long time to give these products a try. I am very pleased. My skin feels incredibly soft and my girlfriend cannot believe how my face looks in such a short period of time. I love the soap and love the Island Coconut Lotion!

So glad mom was right, as always!

Josh


"Oops forgot to say that your lotion is THE ONLY lotion that I have tried that doesn't cause my skin to break out. Every lotion breaks me out to some degree or is too harsh for my sensitive skin and I have tried tons, including plain oils. I've waited to say anything because I'm still really shocked and keep waiting for my skin to act up, but it's just looking better and better. Thanks you much for all your wonderful products."

"I first tried a bar of soap when Bend Soap Company came to Newark, CA for the Newark Days Celebration.  Both my friend and I have what is called Keratosis Pilaris (KP).  This is a hereditary dry-skin condition that often leaves red bumps on the skin, looking like pimples.  After using Bend Soap Company soap, both my friend and I can honestly say that the soap has significantly helped our skin!  My skin condition has improved by 75%, and I am now no longer afraid to wear short-sleeved shirts!  So far, I have found that the English Garden bar works the best for my skin.  I no longer have to pay the big bucks for medicated treatments that only worked temporarily.  It feels good knowing that I am putting healthy ingredients on my skin now, instead of harsh chemicals.  Now, I am sharing this soap with others who also struggle with different skin problems."

I just wanted to say thank you for your soap. I am thirty years old and have had eczema all of my life, but it got worse just a few years ago (stress being a huge culprit) . It was so bad that I would scratch until I bled. Though it is not completely cleared up since using your soap, I have noticed that it doesn't itch so severely. It's slowly healing and going away. But, it is such a relief that I am not constantly scratching. Thank you again for your soap, they smell amazing and leave me feeling very soothed.
Stefanie Kessler


Thank you so much for the Oatmeal 'n Honey goat's milk soaps! My baby's eczema spot on his chin got better (less red and flaky) after only two baths. Now, we're going to try the Milk Bath in a Bag and I'm sure we'll love it!"
Shannon Young




I had heard that if you soak your feet in a Bend Soap Company Milk Bath for 15-20 minutes, any dead skin you had on your feet would scrape right off. I have a couple patches of dry skin on my toes that I have not been able to get rid of (layers of dead skin). I tried the Milk Bath for 20 minutes last Friday and it was amazing!!! All the dead skin is gone. I easily scraped it off with my fingernail. No pain! I will definitely be using this on a regular basis. My feet are smoother and softer as a result.

I'm a big fan of Bend Soap. I had a recurring rash on my ankle for several months. I didn't know what it was, but it was itchy and uncomfortable. I wasn't thinking about the rash when we bought our first bar of Bend Soap.  After a couple of weeks though, I noticed the rash was completely gone and hasn't come back since. The soap has great lather, too!

I tried your soap for the first time last weekend, and I love it. I love the lather, the scent (Lavender, but I'll try the others when it's gone). I love how soft it makes my skin feel. I feel like I'm pampering myself by using a frankly "spa-quality" product; except, it's all natural -- super bonus! Truly awesome -- totally exceeded my expectations!

I live in Manteca, CA, and it is HOT (and the water is HARD) and my skin was drying out terribly over this first year here. However, I noticed a difference in only one week of using your soap. I look forward to continued use of your product; but I already know it works! I'm going to tell all my new friends and neighbors in Manteca!
Joy Guess, Manteca, CA 


We just wanted to let you know we love your soap!! Since I've been using the Oatmeal and Honey soap, a skin condition on my leg has completed cleared up!

I have cancer and it dries my skin out so fast, but this soap takes care of the problem. I also had shingles. It was so soothing to my skin and it made it easier getting over the shingles.

"I was thrilled to learn that Bend's Soap could take off sap AND was gentle on my little baby. It does such a good job. I'm so glad there are no harsh chemicals."
Naomi Clark


Its wonderful to have a soap that smells good and feels so soft, without all the harsh ingredients. We lloooovve this soap. Its absolutely the best! It lathers up amazingly, too."
Brendan & Sarah Booher


Our family is so-o-o impressed with the soap. Our granddaughter, who has eczema, used it today and called me to say how much she liked it. She is without any skin problems, like with other soaps. I have even shampooed my hair with the Lily and Lavender and it came out lovely. Good job Johnsons, you have a whole family of new customers! We are all converting to your soap. You make a high quality and wonderful product. 
Linda Hampton


I love all the scents, but I have to comment that we especially like the plain bar! All those beautiful flavors & yep - we like the plain best for the gentleness of nothing but the pure goat-creamy soap.
Dauna Johnston


YOUR SOAP ROCKS! My hands/nails are [coffee] stain free already! I am floored! Before this I had tried literally every soap in our house and scrubbed each day. Also, the cracking in my hands is going away already! I cannot believe in just a few washes my nails are clear and the cracking is going away. Holy smokes, you have a great product! I am now trying it as a face wash and shampoo too!
Marcy Rasmussen


I just started using the mint soap in my hair and it gave such a great lather! I have a lot of hair and even with regular shampoo it takes a lot to suds up. I feel so much better putting a lot of healthy soap in my hair :)

I am consistently amazed! I've just discovered the Bend Soap Company this week. Each day brings new exploration. Today it was trying it as a shampoo. Loved it! My hair is soft and flexible, not dry and brittle. No more chemical shampoo and conditioner for me!!! I feel like I've discovered el Dorado!
