Buff City Soap – a rapidly expanding handmade retail franchise known for its plant-based soap and body products made in-store daily – recently opened its first location in Alexandria.

The new store is located at 1416 MacArthur Drive. This will be the fourth Louisiana location to be opened by local owners, Jeff and Stacey Lauseng.

“Our guests fall in love with our products once they find out that they are completely plant-based and handmade by locals in the community,” said Stacey Lauseng. “We pride ourselves on the interactive retail experience we offer each person who walks in through our doors and we can’t wait to begin forming relationships with new Buff City Soap fans here in Alexandria.” 

Founded in 2013, Buff City Soap has created a high-quality alternative to commercial soap products full of harsh chemicals, detergents, animal fats, and sulfates. By giving customers the chance to see the whole making process live in each Soap Makery, Buff City Soap is disrupting the consumer goods industry by focusing on transparency of ingredients and process.

Each Buff City Soap store offers more than 30 unique and customizable scents across dozens of handcrafted soap products; including its famous soap bars, bath bombs, foaming hand soap, and even laundry soap. The brand’s products are crafted by local artisans at the in-store Makeries, which allow guests to customize the scent and ingredients used in the process to create a unique scent profile.
