One by one, we are leading a movement into a future. We are powered by people, and our collective mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone while helping them in our local community of Olde Town Arvada, Colorado along with Denver, Colorado as well.
Every year, we set aside 1% of our sales to donate to charitable organizations called "Give A Soap™" that share our ambition to bring everyone together in Arvada, CO and our surrounding communities.
We want our customers to look and feel good; it’s why we’ve gone to great lengths to make really high-quality beauty products for them. From the beginning, we have had this mantra: “We Give A Soap.” It’s a statement that embodies us caring about every last detail of what we do and extends to caring about our customers and the community around us.
We do this because, actually, it’s nothing short of helping our local community: men, woman and children. Here’s a closer look at why we picked them, what they do, and what specifically your money is being used for.

The Arvada Center celebrates and elevates the human condition with engaging arts, humanities, education, and entertainment that expand the cultural landscape for everyone who visits us.

In 1925, Arvada was a small farming community with a population of approximately 1,000 people. At that time, business leaders decided to move from a Community Club structure to a full-fledged Chamber of Commerce. With a new charter in hand, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce began working to strengthen Arvada’s economy. From the first Harvest Festival in 1925 to the first traffic light in 1941, the Chamber helped the community achieve its economic potential. Through the Great Depression and World War II, members of the Chamber developed the foundation that would help Arvada prepare for the economic growth that lay ahead. Having served the community for over 90 years, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce continues to play an integral role in the business community.
