I was there early in season. Ice cream bar was not open yet. Fun to shop. Enjoyed visiting with the goats that make it all happen.

The Great Canadian Soap Company is well worth a stop. The owner talked to us about the soap and the reasons for the different colors. We bought a large variety to bring home.

Who knew that goat soap was so special! I purchased several soaps for my friends at home, they were thrilled. I only wish I had purchased more.

Huge variety of soap for both people, and even furry friends. So many different scents, it’s impossible not to find one you like, although slightly overpowering at times. Don’t let the name fool you, they also have lotions, shampoos, lip balm, and more. It’s a great place to find stocking stuffers, or a lovely island souvenir. Good pricing as well.

I am a little embarrassed to admit this but in all my life, this was my first visit to the soap company and I only live about 5 miles away. I drove by here many times and just never stopped in. They are open all year long and offer some of the best soaps you will find. Made from goats milk their soaps are very "Skin Friendly". Although they do add some scents to the soaps there are no harsh chemicals involved in the processing. They have a huge selection of scented and unscented soaps plus oils and creams, cheeses, jams and more. They are one of the few places on the Island that has a license to make and sell their own cheese. I was surprised at the amount of different products that they offer besides soap. This store is not just for the ladies either. They have a section of creams,waxes and oils for those of us with beards as well. Although they are open all year round, I believe their ice cream store is only open in the summer. I also believe that about 90% of their products are made in house. There is also an area where you can pet the goats and sheep. This is not a fancy retail store with slick advertising and expensive displays. It is a small country store.But their products are of a high quality and standard and unlike the products that you will find in the large retail centers you will not be exposed to all the toxic ingredients. I will be making regular visits here for my body products as I really like how they make my skin look and feel.

We enjoyed The Great Canadian Soap Co. very much. Nice to actually see the goats. The young lady was warm and friendly and allowed us all the time we needed. Products are great. The gentleman knew he stuff and was very informative. A nice experience! Would recommend.

We stopped here because I’m a big fan of natural things. So soap made of goats milk was great. They had numerous scents and were all made on site. There were some goats in a pen that you could see. A little area to sit and eat goats milk icecream. ( was a very icy product, not creamy at all). Cute place, worth the stop if you’re over that way

Cute to visit the goats at this stop. They sell soap, goat's milk ice cream and cheese. Found them to be pricey.

We love goat milk soap, so this was a stop we had planned on! The goats were fun to see and then we went into the soap shop. So many scents! We smelled them all and bought over a dozen bars. I am happy to know they will ship to the USA! Sampled some cheese, but since we were traveling, we couldn't keep it chilled. We also sampled the creams, but I thought they seemed too pricey. A lovely environmentally-conscious business! As we were leaving, we stopped by the ice cream shack and had a goats milk icecream - interesting texture - crumbly like the high protein ice creams out now. The flavor was not goaty, but not great. Love the soap since we've used a bar at home!
