Buff City Soap began in 2014 in Memphis, TN when founders Brad Kellum and Jen Ziemianin learned how to make soap in their garage. Little did they know, Buff City would soon be a national lifestyle brand.

Van Alstyne Chamber of Commerce's Buff City listing shares, "Buff City’s artisan soaps and other products soothe, moisturize, and condition skin with coconut, palm, and olive oils … plus you’ll smell fabulous. Our plant-based ingredients like rosemary, lavender, and mint are (almost) good enough to eat!"

With recent deliveries to Van Alstyne ISD campus', Buff City Soap (Facebook) shared photos & said, "It is Fall Y’all which means it’s Festival Time! Buff City Soap loves our teachers and our new community! Let us know if you would like help with a fundraiser, shopping event or hosting fun Girls’ Night Out!"
