Every year, through our "Give A Soap™" campaign, we set aside 2% of our sales to support charitable organizations that share our ambition and philosophies to improve the lives of those living in Arvada, CO and surrounding communities.
We believe that feeling fresh and clean makes you look good and feel better about yourself. We think of keeping clean as an experience to relish and not just a quick obligatory transaction. That is just one reason why we focus on really high-quality beauty products. But we also want to help our customers and community in other ways that lead to a fulfilling life.
Give A Soap™ enables us to extend this care beyond our physical borders. We support health and human services, and those helping small businesses, like ourselves. We also support educators, art and artists, and those promoting peace. And our list keeps growing. Take a look at the list of friends below to see why we find them important and who your purchase helps us support.

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.
