MION Artisan Soap is a family-owned company that started off as just a table at local farmer's markets, and has since evolved into two brick-and-mortar locations, one of which is on First Street in St. Charles. However, one thing that hasn't changed is they never use fragrance oils, synthetic ingredients, parabens or preservatives in any of their selection of high-quality products such as soaps, bath products, skin-care products, and much more.
