Every hunter knows the importance of staying downwind to avoid your mark picking up your scent. There are a lot of tried and true big-brand products on the market to help you upkeep your personal hygiene on a hunting trip and remove or mask your natural human smell; however, even when you’re camping, hiking, or backpacking personal hygiene isn’t a necessity your campmates will thank you — and it will probably do wonders for morale. We found four small businesses who offer biodegradable, outdoor friendly soap bars perfect for thriving when outdoors. 

Singing River Farms Hunting Camp Soap-Fir Needle

Singing River Farms is owned and operated by Sue House and Scott Carlstrom out of the Colorado Rocky Mountain foothills. Sue and Scott stumbled into soap making and quickly found it to be their passion. They started making soaps that lather well in hard water and leave skin feeling hydrated in high-altitude environments. Their Fir Needle Hunting Camp Soap is a misnomer. Instead, it offers the scent of a fall hunting camp with good friends and good times. Bring that nostalgic feeling with you wherever you go outdoors by purchasing it through Singingriverfarms.com 

The Blue Ridge Soap Shed Bug Me No More Soap Bars

The Blue Ridge Soap Shed started in 1998 in a shed located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina by married couple Dr. Tim Tyndall and Karen Tyndall. ‘Dr. T’ graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a major in botany and biology and completed his later graduate degrees from North Carolina State University. Beyond soap making, Karen writes about small business topics and reimagining your life and business after 50. Their Bug Me No More soap deters insects, removes campfire odors, and soothes sunburned skin. You can pick up yours from Soapshed.com.  

Sudsy Bear Deep Woods Soap Bars

Hitting the soap scene in 2021, Sudsy Bear soap brings the farm-to-table philosophy from their family farming operation in central Florida to the world of personal grooming. Their Deep Woods soap wants to transport you to a hunting camp, “filled with men telling tall tales and lies while imbibing strong amber liquids sitting around a roaring campfire after a fine meal.” This gritty two-toned soap has smooth hints of American Bourbon, Vanilla, fir needle and more. You can pick up your bear directly from Sudsy Bear’s website.
