Buff City Soap Brings Plant-Based Products to Forest Lake


Buff City Soap – a rapidly expanding handmade retail franchise known for its plant-based soap and body products made in-store daily – will soon be opening its first location in Minnesota. The new store will be located in Forest Lake at 2009 W. Broadway Ave. and opened in February this year. 

To celebrate the opening, the first 50 people who visited the new store in Forest Lake each day Thursday, Feb. 10 – Sunday, Feb. 13 for the VIP received FREE soap for a year. 

“People don’t realize they have a soap addiction until they walk through the doors at Buff City Soap for the first time,” said Carla Haugaard, Director of Operations. “We take pride in the fact that everything in our store here is hand-made by members of the local Forest Lake community.” 

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.
