Caswell Massey is a purveyor of fine soaps and bath products with stores across the country and on the Internet. The company has a storied history, dating back to the time of the American Revolution. At that time its predecessor, Hunter's Dispensary, was selling bubble bath and cologne to such luminaries as the Marquis de LaFayette and George Washington. Today, the company specializes in fine-milled soaps, creams and bath gels.

Caswell Massey Fine Toiletries

Unique botanical creations are a hallmark of Caswell Massey. Their almond cold cream soap, for example, has been a favorite for over 50 years. It was the preferred soap of the Eisenhowers, as well. Almond and aloe hand cream has silk protein. Elder flower and cucumber soap, castile olive oil cakes and sandalwood-scented tricorn soap are triple-milled for thick lather and skin-softening properties.

Their fragrances are also rich in botanicals. Their famous Number 6 cologne was favored by George Washington, its citrus scent still made with the same formula two hundred and fifty years later. Casma is a blend of musk, jasmine and vanilla. A new line of sea-based bath products offers salts, bath gels, bath oils, soaps and body mist made from marine botanicals

Caswell Massey was one of the first producers of fine toiletries in America. They continue to offer soaps and skin care products for men and women that are made to exacting standards. Once the privilege of presidents and diplomats, their line is now available to the public online and at select retail stores.
