Red Mountain Goodness soaps
Red Mountain Goodness handcrafts its soaps using natural, local goat milk as well as pure coconut and olive oils and high quality essential oils. Owner Todd Hinson, who is a Piedmont EMC member, began making soap to help ease his wife's dry wintertime skin. After positive feedback from family and friends who used his soaps, the former research scientist went into commercial soap production from the couple's Rougemont home. The Red Mountain Goodness product line includes citrus, Australian tea tree, oatmeal, peppermint, bay and rum and French lavender soaps, and each 5-ounce bar sells for $7.50. The company also sells a 2.75-ounce shampoo bar (lavender and rosemary versions) for $4.50. Gift baskets for $32 are also available.
