While seeing some sights in the Eastern part if PEI we suddenly came upon the Great Canadian Soap Company. After parking the car we passed right by the goats that are the basis for this Company and they came to us looking for attention ! On entering the Store of this family owned business we were asked if we would... More

There is a very good video showing the making of soap. it runs about 12 minutes and is very informative. You can wander around and watch the goats,... More

Loved this place. Bought several bars of soap for myself & friends. Went out back to see the goats & they seemed to be happy & playful. Great stop for some souvenirs.

This really is a neat location. There is a short video presentation that is more interesting and informative then most. The soap and other products were lovely and they had great offseason deals! It was also nice to see the goats, who appear to be very happy.

Let's start out by saying the soap is very nice which is why I was up set about not getting the special after watching their movie. On the shelf next to the video is a sign that says "watch the video and get our $35 bar of soap for $20... Good deal if you like the soap and want a... More

This is a great stop...especially for families. At the entrance the goats who contribute their milk for soap production (as well as cheese and ice cream) are available for a pat and a photo opportunity. Inside all natural soaps, butters and lip balms are available for sale. The soaps are aromatic, many for specialized purposes and are popular judging by... More

So happy we decided to stop in and check out this shop. The scent when walking in was to die for. Very happy that they had samples to take home and that if I fall in love with my facial bar I can order it online. The best part for me was getting to visit the goats. So friendly and... More

We stumbled upon this place as we were meandering through PEI. We were invited to video the 12 minute video about the company, and after that, were convinced to give the soap and creams a try! I have arthritis, and tried the pain relief cream on my paining hands, and I have to say it seemed to ease the pain... More

We visited in May 2014. Watched a 15 minute video about soaps and soapmaking. A bit of a sales pitch, perhaps, but also thought provoking and interesting. Shop had a lot of samples and a wide variety of products. They had samplers for the creams and a sink with soaps to try too. They also had work by a local... More
