The San Marcos Springs is one of the oldest continually inhabited locations in North America. In the Coahuiltecan tribe’s creation story, they were born out of these springs. There are 5 endangered species that exist at the springs and in the aquifer that feeds them. The Texas Wild Rice and the San Marcos Salamander are endemic to these springs. The water is approximately 72 degrees fahrenheit year round and the spring has never gone dry. This soap is made with water from the spring and will leave you feeling refreshed and youthful like all who swim in these waters.

Bathe with the essence of San Marcos Springs with our classic olive oil recipe featuring fresh water from San Marcos Springs. Sweet and cool, just like the river – this bar features essential oils of bergamot, spearmint, juniper, and cinnamon. A touch of red clay offers a silky smooth feeling, like you are swimming among the wild rice, or spending a lazy day tubing down the river.

The Headwaters Soap Collection from Old Factory is a Texas tribute to the iconic springs of the Hill Country. Emerging forth from the jagged beauty of the Balcones Fault Zone, the crystal-clear, limestone filtered, artesian springs of this region have inspired people to gather at these waters for over ten thousand years. We have teamed up with 4 local water conservation non-profits to create a product that gives back, and shares the beauty and spirit of these places.
