Larry Plesent began raising the bar on natural and organic soap products in 1992 when he founded Vermont Soapworks. Larry's innovations have continued throughout the years to included a breakthrough in the first certified organic shampoo base for the private label industry. Vermont Soapworks Organics produces USDA Approved, Certified Organic alternatives to the often irritating, chemical and detergent based personal care products.

A major expansion at the factory in Vermont took place to create more capacity when Vermont Soapworks began supplying leading manufacturers. Larry is dedicated to his customers and also providing formulators and marketers with the most effective backbone formulas.

Vermont Soapworks has been experimenting with different combinations of shampoo ingredients and botanicals for nearly two decades, also manufacturing handmade cold process bar soaps, liquid soaps , the first truly organic shower gels, numerous organic nontoxic cleaners and much more.
