The Soap and Paper Factory is found in New York and online at  Factory you say?  If it is a factory it’s a fabulous factory that produces the finest and packages each with flare.

Among S & P’s finest are their hand creams - all flawlessly hand made and rich in Shea Butter - the miracle worker that soothes and smooths your skin.  Happily the hand creams just like all of S & P’s products are made free of animal testing, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, and additives.  They’re packaged in shiny aluminum tubes so easy to tuck in purse, backpack or desk drawer.  Each tube has a safety seal beneath the cap to ensure total freshness when it is opened.  And, what a joy it is to remove the seal for the first scent, which challenges nature in its authenticity.

The cream itself is created not only with Shea Butter but also the finest oils.  It takes but a small amount, perhaps the size of a green pea to moisturize your hands.  The cream is absorbed with no feeling of oiliness only soft silky skin, a feeling that lasts.

Our favorite college girl is headed to campus this year with three of her favorites:

Violet - the ultimate in a floral scent with the cream highlighted by notes of Crushed Violet Petal, Jasmine and Citron.  So feminine!

Bouquet - enriched with rose, created with notes of Turkish Rose Otto and Rose Geranium.  Innocent and sweet.

Camellia - a scent unto itself blended with Citron, Basillicum and Wild Fennel.  A bit dramatic and intriguing.
Our girl has never been shy about dropping very broad hints so she has made it clear that each of these scents is also available from S & P in perfume form.  Right at the top of her Santa list says she.  Undoubtedly the creams and perfumes will be topping many lists this year - including ours.  We’ll find them at
