Skincare is all the rage right now. I mean, you can hardly scroll through social media without seeing something new that you need to add to your routine. To make curating the perfect skincare routine a little bit easier, we’ve rounded up four brands across the Gulf Coast that specialize in handmade goodies for your skin.
1. Lunar Magic Apothecary
If you frequent Mobile or Fairhope’s many maker’s markets, you’ve likely run across Lunar Magic Apothecary. This adorable little brand features tons of handmade soaps, body oils, bath salts, body scrubs and more, all handmade from recipes crafted by the owner herself, April Jordan. All of the herbs used in the soaps and oils were grown in Jordan’s garden, too.
They don’t have a physical storefront (yet!) but they always announce their market appearances on social media.
2. Fairhope Soap Company
If you like to spend a day walking around some shops and you just so happen to need some skincare, Fairhope Soap Company is the perfect stop for you. It’s located in the heart of downtown Fairhope, which is an adorable place to spend some time walking around.
They have a huge selection of handmade soaps, bath bombs, body scrubs and more, all in a huge variety of delicious scents. Everyone will find a scent they love. They have a great selection of beard care and shaving supplies for the guys, too.

3. Nature’s Nuance
Nature’s Nuance is another maker’s market favorite around Mobile. They have a wide variety of soaps, oils and hair care products, all handmade with pure essential oils. As the name implies, Nature’ Nurture focuses on the healing properties of herbs and flowers around us, making soaps & skincare with common skin concerns in mind.
Nature’s Nuance makes it easy to shop, too, since you can shop online or follow along on social media to catch them at a weekend market.
