Ian and Alina started Borestone Soap in the summer of 2017. As children, they both loved spending time roaming the wild woods of Maine with their families and sometimes fishing poles. Growing up in the Highlands, one of Ian’s favorite places to hike was Borestone Mountain, a secluded summit surrounded by the beautiful 100 mile wilderness and the nearby Appalachian Trail. The Borestone trail system is still a favorite hike and the reason for our name. Borestone soap is all natural and contains no synthetic fragrances or artificial colorants. We think people like being able to pronounce the ingredients they’re putting on their bodies. Our handcrafted bars have 3 basic ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, and shea butter.
