Kim Ford has always enjoyed incorporating her fun personality into the products she sells. Now, Hoover residents can enjoy them too. This past fall, her business Skull Girl Soaps found a new home in Bluff Park.
Kim Ford formerly had a store and decided to move her line of bath products to Owls Hollow Farm Market. Walk in to the door of the market and turn right past the produce to a sweet smelling room of luxurious bath products.
Skull Girl Soaps offers unique, all-natural soaps, scrubs, lotions, lip balms, shaving accessories, bath teas and more.
Fun soap flavors include Cilantro Citrus, Orange Ginger, Oatmeal Honey, Bama Sweet Peach, Twisted Tea Trea, Viva La Juicy and Wicked Pink Lemonade. Each soap features a different skull girl design, a skull sitting a bubble bath.
With Valentine’s Day approaching, Ford says custom gift baskets are a great option and advises customers to give her a call ahead to time with what they would like. She also does personalized wedding favors and customized bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts.
Ford’s products aren’t just for adults. She has several lines of children’s soaps with fun toys in the middle such as tiny cars and dinosaurs.
“Whether it is for a wedding, social event, or special occasion we can create perfect unique gifts for you,” Ford said.
She uses natural ingredients, which is helpful for people with eczema, dermatitis, etc. She often gives her items as gifts for friends and family.
The name of her business comes from Ford’s background with Harley Davidson.
“I think they really show off my personality,” she said.
Ford makes the soaps at home in batches and often enlists the help of her family. Each bar of soap is a cold press soap which takes four weeks to cure. All soaps are made with food grade coconut oil, olive oil, palm kernel flakes, Castor oil, essential oils/fragrance oils and natural herbs. These are made in small batches, and then each bar is cut and packaged.
In addition to the Bluff Park store, Ford sells her items in the Birmingham Museum of Art, Heart of Dixie Harley-Davidson and Spa Greystone and Riders Harley-Davidson. She enjoys her new location in Bluff Park and hopes to continue to serve the community with unique and fun bath products.
