Buff City Soaps - Newport News

Buff City Soap – a rapidly expanding handmade retail franchise known for its plant-based soap and body products made in-store daily – has opened its first location in Newport News. The new store is located at 12551 Jefferson Ave. and opened on May 5th.

To celebrate the opening, the first 50 people who visit the new store in Newport News each day on Thursday, May 5 – Sunday, May 8 for the VIP Event, will get one free bar of soap every month for a year. In addition to the VIP Event, the Grand Opening Event will be held from June 24 – June 26 where customers will have their second chance to win free soap for a year each day that Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“The superior quality products that Buff City Soap makes in each of its soap ‘makeries’ is clear to anyone who stops by our stores,” said Jamie Mason. “We are so excited to now open Buff City Soap’s newest location in Newport News and strengthen the brand’s presence in the state of Virginia.”

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.
