The name "Monocacy" refers to the name of the first path through the town of York, Pennsylvania, our hometown. "Monocacy Road", now known to most as Market Street, was used by native Americans traveling from nearby Susquehanna River to Monocacy River in Maryland. Our name serves as a tribute to going back to the basics. Back to a time when women would make soap using traditional methods. It was a time before synthetic chemicals, fragrances or dyes. This remains as our focus at Monocacy Soap Company. We are committed to providing a healthy, "special treatment" for your skin...everyday.
