I bought their soap at The Saturday Market. It smells good and works great...

The foaming soap is slippery cleaning goodness. I've been using Oregon Soap Co foaming soap on a regular basis for the last 6 weeks, and I have no complaints. Sat Atma (owner) has been very easy and flexible to work with and I like knowing that for every 5 gallons of soap purchased, a tree is planted. I've been purchasing in bulk and the turn around time with delivery has been smooth and on time.
