Soapstone is a natural stone. It’s composed mostly of mineral talc, which gives it the soft feel, but soapstone that is used for countertops typically has higher percentages of quartz in it, which makes it harder and more suitable as a kitchen surface.
Unlike other types of stone surfaces like granite or marble, soapstone does not need a sealer because it is nonporous, which makes it stain resistant. Red wine, lemon acid, tomato sauce, olive oil, and such just aren’t a problem. The stone is also temperature neutral, so red hot cookware placed on top isn’t a problem either.
While soapstone does not chip or crack easily, it can develop subtle dents and scratches in hardworking kitchens that can be buffed away or left to contribute to its natural beauty. It is a low maintenance option for kitchen countertops. Nothing needs to be done to make soapstone beautiful since nature has taken care of this.
