Zeep is the Dutch word for soap, a reference to the roots of Zeep Natural Soap’s founder Peter. He grew up in a small village in Belgium, in a region called the Flemish Ardennes, known for its rural hilly landscapes with hilltop bluebell woodlands. After moving to NYC by way of Brussels and Istanbul, discovering the natural beauty and tranquility of the Catskills in upstate New York felt like coming home far away from home. Inspired by the area’s streams, mountains and valleys, he started creating a series of Catskills themed soaps.
All soaps are made in small batches, using essential oils and nourishing vegetable oils, while omitting synthetic additives, plastic, palm oil, and animal fats. Founded on the power of beneficial natural ingredients, Zeep Natural Soap is caring and gentle, for both you and nature.
Peter has been a resident of Harlem for several years and keeps his city fingers green as a member of the Rev. Linnette Williamson community gardens, the oldest vest-pocket gardens in the USA.
