Mountain Mist

The Mountain Mist Soap Company was founded in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina. Rich in history and culture, Asheville provides the perfect backdrop to create products to nourish the body and the senses.

Mountain Mist uses simple ingredients, clean scent blends, and quality ingredients to make small batches of handcrafted, fragrant products.

Mountain Mist soaps and lotions are made using organic, Fair Trade shea butter (made from the nuts of Butyrospermum parkii, also known as shea nut or karité, a Sahalian tree that grows wild across sub-Saharan Africa. Shea butter is wild harvested, and provides valuable supplemental income to the farmers and women’s cooperatives who harvest and transform the nuts, as well as adding value to the trees, enhancing their conservation. 

Shea butter contains the Vitamins A & E, minerals, proteins, and a unique fatty profile, and is a superior active moisturizer. Unlike petroleum based moisturizers, shea butter actually restores the skin's natural elasticity. Shea butter enables your skin to absorb moisture from the air, and as a result, your skin becomes softer and stays moisturized for longer.
