Island Thyme Soap Company is an e-commerce shop producing beautiful decorative handmade soap with love and lots of coconut milk on a little island on Florida's Gulf Coast!
A Three Mile Long Slice of Paradise
Inspired by the whimsical little beach community of Indian Rocks Beach Florida, we put the charm of our "Old Florida" little island town in every small batch we make. Just a short drive from Tampa Bay’s metropolitan centers, IRB, as it's affectionately known, seems a world away from the hustle and bustle.
While neighboring beach communities have become overgrown with towering hotels and noisy night clubs, IRB remains a small town still deeply connected to tradition of colorful beach cottages tucked amid grassy sand dunes, and a vibrant local economy of eclectic shops, world-famous dining and outdoor adventure.
A love of nature and a love of the arts run deep among the island’s nearly 5000 residents who welcome visitors from around the world to share a spectacular Gulf of Mexico sunset and a taste of that funky, mellow island life.
Our Mission and History
Our founder Beryl Anne Coder was diagnosed with MS in 2003. She began making handmade soap in 2006 to limit her exposure to harsh toxic chemicals found in so many mass-produced personal hygiene and beauty products. Upon leaving the corporate world after 20+ successful years as a human resources executive for several large multi-state hospitality companies, soap-making soon became her passion.
We take pride is creating the highest quality decorative handmade coconut milk soap bars that are:
- Cruelty free
- Phlalate free
- Made with ingredients that are ethically sourced
- Long lasting
- Responsibly packaged
- Quickly Shipped Carbon Neutral
