Worker’s Soap ($19.50) This small batch artisanal product is for the man (or woman) who understands that being good with your hands means being good to your hands. Whether your dukes are calloused from carpentry, weary from woodworking or pencil-stained from paper-pushing, our Worker’s Soap provides your hands with a heavy-duty, capable clean. And it’s not just a hand soap: natural pumice makes it perfectly suited for scrubbing tough spots like elbows and feet. Endowed with the unburdening aromas of tobacco, cedar and patchouli, Worker’s Soap has a scent that is nothing short of hardy and strapping. It will leave your hands soft, refreshed and ever ready for the next big project. Handcrafted in the Western Adirondacks.

Beeswax soap is a harder, longer lasting, tough soap that helps hands resist dryness and irritation caused by frequent washing. Leaves skin smooth and clean, ready to rustle up a meal or indulge in one.

 Part of the working class culture since the Middle Ages, scullery soap would often appear in the servants’ quarters or kitchen annex as a utilitarian scrubbing bar. Hudson Made’s scullery soap pays homage to the tradition of the homestead and works well on all of your rough spots. It’s a soap for anyone who possesses a multitudinous passion for the kitchen or a hard day’s work—and for whatever those efforts may yield.
