Grooming Perfection


Since 2015, Alluvian has done more than refine an old tradition: We've started a new one. Guided by the love of natural skincare, the ocean, travel and endurance, Alluvian manufactures small batch aquatic botanical soap and grooming products in central Illinois.  Drawing from traditional practices and enhancing with organic and geologic elements, this transformative collection of body products is well suited for modern society.  Enjoy.


Alluvian is derived from the word Alluvium; a deposit of clay, silt, sand, and gravel left by flowing streams in a river valley or delta, typically producing fertile soil.  It is with this same idea of fertility we include geologic elements like moroccan red clay, french green clay, volcanic sea salt, dead sea mud, and kaolin clay in our product line.  We know the value of these elements in skin care and want you to reap the benefits.
