Buff City Soap to open at Oxford, Mississippi’s historic Downtown Square

Popular Soap Makery slated to open on South Lamar this fall

Founded in 2013, Buff City Soap is a Southern-based lifestyle brand disrupting the way people buy everyday soap. With a mission to “make life smell wonderful, one handmade soap at a time,” Buff City’s plant-based soaps are freshmade daily in the brand’s Soap Makeries, giving customers the opportunity to witness the handcrafting process in person. In February 2019, Kevin Herzke, along with his father, Rudy, franchised Buff City Soap when they opened a storefront in Germantown, Tennessee. The father-son duo’s second location soon followed in Collierville, Tennessee, in November 2019. Buff City Soap – Oxford will be the third shop opened by Kevin Herzke. For more information, visit

Buff City Soap announced a new location will open soon in Oxford, Mississippi, offering handcrafted, plant-based soaps and skincare products. The 1,700-square-foot storefront is located at 400 South Lamar Blvd.

“Opening a Buff City Soap shop on The Square is a dream realized,” said Kevin Herzke, Collierville, Tennessee-based franchisee and owner of Buff City Soap – Oxford. “We couldn’t have asked for a better location near some of Oxford’s most beloved establishments. Our team looks forward to sharing Buff City Soap’s plant-based, handmade products with all of Oxford’s residents and visitors.”

Founded in 2013, Buff City Soap’s mission is to create handmade products that are free of harsh chemicals and preservatives but full of plant-based ingredients that make your body happy. Each one of Buff City Soap’s storefronts is equipped as a Soap Makery, allowing guests to see products being made while they shop. From beloved bar soap and hair care products to laundry detergent and pup soap, Buff City Soap uses ingredients such as coconut, palm and olive oils, cocoa butter, colloidal oatmeal and vitamin E to ensure that guests and their loved ones receive quality products every visit and with every use. The same quality ingredients can be found in its beard care, hair care and facial products. Additionally, Buff City Soap welcomes team-building events, birthday parties and corporate retreats in which participants make and take home their own products.

Buff City Soap’s Oxford location is set to open later this fall. Once open, patrons can opt in to receive daily, weekly and monthly discounts and special deals via email or text message by signing up in store.
