What’s in a name? (and the story of a town that sounds like a superhero movie)

Named after our home in Copperopolis (though we’re not really into comics, it’s always sounded to us like a city name that you’d find in Clark Kent’s universe), Copper Soap Works is nestled in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Foothills in California. Surrounded by rolling hills dotted with oak trees as far as the eye can see, it is a place of raw natural beauty. This landscape provides us with daily inspiration in the creation of our soaps and skin care products.
