Douglas Smith Artisan Soap Co., a locally owned soap company, opened at 208 N. LBJ Drive, San Marcos, Aug. 10.

The soap company frequently set up shop at the San Marcos Farmers Market and other Hill Country farmers markets. Owners Michael and Kevin Douglas-Smith said they decided to open a brick and mortar in San Marcos after building a base with the community.

"We're so excited to be open," Michael Douglas-Smith told Community Impact.

The soap company sells an assortment of plant-based, handcrafted soap and shave products using ingredients that include honey, lavender, aloe and jasmine.
