Cooper & French Artisan Soap Makers are Richard & Stephanie Creger. They are Minneapolis natives, living and working in the art-centric Audubon neighborhood of Northeast Minneapolis.
They are both passionate about vintage and antique items. It was this passion that leads Richard to explore wet shaving with a vintage Gillette double edge safety razor. Of course to do the experience justice a shaving brush and soap were procured.
After that first full-on "old-timey" shaving experience, Richard was hooked. Not only did he get a great shave, but it was also comfortable to boot. A far cry from the usual abuse he got from canned goop and a disposable razor.
Within a year, Richard began exploring how to make shaving soap from the raw ingredients. Months of experiments, and dozens of micro-batches later, the formula has been perfected.
