Paula Foore and Carla Crownover formed Springdale Handmade in response to continuous requests to purchase the soap and body products that they were making for themselves, their family, and their friends.  

Paula, an organic farmer, and Carla, an avid gardener and local food advocate, joined forces in this endeavor and together they continually expanded the line to meet requests, and continue to do so.  All plant based additives (herbs and flowers) are grown in our personal gardens or on local organic farms in Austin, Texas.  We also use goods made by local artisans to infuse our products including Austin Honey Company, Lost Pines Yaupon Tea, Third Coast Coffee, Austin Coffee Traders and Zhi Tea. Our line of loofah soaps are made with loofah grown on Springdale Farm.


Commitment to Natural

Springdale Handmade uses only natural fragrances and essential oils in our products. We never use sodium lauryl sulfates, petroleum products, parabens, or unnatural preservatives or fragrances. Our body butters, scrubs, salves, bath products, and candles are handcrafted to complement the soaps and we only use the highest quality ingredients possible. 

All of our products are tested on humans, primarily our families and us. The only product tested on animals is our Working Dog Soap, which has been tested on Ellie May, the farm dog. She approves!
