First conceived by Van Woods, son of Sylvia Woods, founder of the famed Sylvia’s Restaurant in New York City, and long-time friend and business partner, Gary Greenhouse, Dr. Woods is rooted in a lifetime commitment to family, community and doing what’s right.
Starting with our Black Soap, a unique natural cleanser, Dr. Woods’ vision was to produce high quality skin care products sourced worldwide but made right here in the United States. Products made by a small company that personally cares about what we offer to our customers. Natural products that are of the highest quality at a price nearly anyone can afford. Products that we use every day in our own family, and are proud to share with yours.
In short, we are committed to creating products that truly are “All Things Good.”
Today, our product family, like our own family, has grown like the leaves and branches of the tree we use to symbolize our promise to our family and yours. A promise to provide safe, natural, cruelty-free products that are good for you and the environment. A promise to use ingredients that support the families of small farmers and producers around the world. A promise to make natural products that just plain work, at a price your family can afford.
A promise to share only those products with your family that we know are good for our family, too. Products that we love and use every day – on our kids, and our own skin, hair, and homes.
Welcome to the family.
Made for the Entire Family
Only the Best for Your Skin
We offer our Fair Trade Organic Shea Butter, one of Nature’s most effective and versatile Health & Beauty resources, across all Dr. Woods Castile and Black Soaps. Sustainably harvested from the nut of the Karite Shea Tree, indigenous to Ghana, our Shea Butter is a bountiful source of Vitamins A and E, as well as essential fatty acids to soothe and balance your skin. We use Shea Butter in its purest form – Raw and Organic – in order to retain its highest level of therapeutic and healing properties.
Available in 3 Sizes!
Dr. Woods Unscented Baby Mild Castile Soap with Organic Shea Butter is available in 3 sizes (8 oz, 16 oz, 32 oz) so you can pick what is best for you and your family.
Formulated with a healthy coconut and olive oil base, our Castile soap produces incredibly rich lather that allows for a deep, refreshing clean and effortless rinsing. Our ingredients are gentle enough for all skin types and beautifully balanced for face, body and hair.
Never Tested on Animals
Sleep better at night knowing that all of Dr. Woods and any of their suppliers do not conduct or commision animal testing on their products.
Our vegan soaps are petroleum-free, detergent-free, and free from sulfates, parabens and phthalates.
Dr. Woods Black Soap
We are so proud to offer our line of Castile Soaps! Made from natural all vegetable ingredients, they are free of phthalates, parabens, sulfates and petroleum products. These soaps are as good for the earth as they are for your family. Our 100% vegan, certified cruelty-free Liquid Castile Soaps are gentle and moisturizing, thanks to the natural healing powers of our proprietary blend of olive, hemp and coconut oil. This combination is particularly effective at keeping our Castile Soaps from stripping the skin of much needed moisture. A natural humectant, olive oil actually attracts moisture to the skin, increasing hydration. It then creates a breathable layer of protection to help maintain that healthy moisture balance. Dr. Woods Castile Soaps are available plain or with added fair-trade raw shea butter to condition and moisturize your skin.
All of Dr. Woods Liquid Soaps are Gluten Free.
Only the Best Ingredients, Ever.
Here at Dr. Woods, “All Things Good” is not simply a slogan on our label, it defines each and every ingredient that we include in our soaps. And we don’t stop there. All things good includes everything from where we source our products to the way they are made. Our products are certified cruelty-free and we use only sustainable, locally-produced sources wherever possible.
If it’s not good enough for our family, it’s not good enough for yours. It’s our commitment and our promise.
By combining hard work, perseverance, and an unswerving dedication to offering only the best, Dr. Woods offers a unique line of what we believe are some of the most effective natural cleansers available today. At a price your family can afford.
Exceptional quality and incredible value? That is all things good.
Soap for the Family, Supports Families and Communities
