A Little History

Display of Sunflower Hill SoapsSunflower Hill started as a hobby, making soaps, lotions and potions as an excuse for a little pampering (ahem, someone had to try out the products). Before we knew it, friends were asking for their own concoctions and a business was born!

We use only the best quality ingredients, essential and fragrance oils, glycerin, fixed oils, etc. Our products are never tested on animals, mostly on willing friends and family – husbands and sons included! We make all our products in small carefully controlled batches. Each bar of soap is hand cut and wrapped. Most of our packaging can be recycled.

Many of our products evolved from enthusiastic ideas and requests from friends and customers, resulting in names like "My Sister's Patchouli" named for my sister who came of age in the 70's, Treasures from the Sea (Almost) , our soap that looks like Seaglass which was developed at the request of a customer. Our men’s soap "The Lone Rooster" at another customer suggestion who also came up with the tag line – "Don't smell 'fowl', use Lone Rooster and get the 'chicks'"

We are committed to hiring local women- primarily stay at home moms and retirees- allowing them to control their work schedules with us… one more way we are supporting the women of Maine and our diverse roles while helping to build the economy in our little corner of the world.
