"One of the reasons I love dealing with small artisan businesses such as yours is the customer service; that and the products, of course. Both those traits come from a belief and/or passion, and when the business gives back - as you do - you deserve all the support you can get." Rebekah
"...thank you Nicola and Haluk for the lovely products I ordered from you. The soaps smell amazing and love the whip, my skin feels really soft and smells wonderful. Really pleased to find local products which are vegan and are plastic free as well." Amanda
For Insect Bites "I would like to tell you that last year I brought some of your Shea butter & avocado oil whip Lavender. I had some serious insect bites on Monday the doctor was concerned about them I refused pills and used your cream and my goodness by the next day they had almost gone and today clear. I am so pleased 😀 thank you 😊" Sharron
Before:"My 12 year old daughter has terrible red, itchy skin and when she moisturises it she cries with pain! It all stings her so much!! I’ve tried childs farm, moo goo, prescriptions from the Dr, double base, aveeno etc etc. Can you recommend any of your products that might help her? I’m desperate to find something." After: "Just a note to thank you for the order and to let you know that this cream (Organic Shea Butter & Avocado Whip)has changed my daughter’s life!!! No more pain!!! I’m about to order a lot more. " Vicky
Shampoo Bar Convert
"I never expected to receive the samples when I asked about suitability for frizzy, curly hair. To be honest, I loved the smell of the orange, but it left my hair unimpressed. The lavender and chamomile definitely gave the most consistent results; can't argue with the hair. After seeing the results, I persuaded my son to try the orange; maybe because I see his hair more than my own, I was even more impressed with the way it transformed his straight, greasy hair. I am doing my best to spread the word among friends and family with us as walking advertisements." Rebekah
For Psoriasis on Scalp
"Bought this [Gentle Apricot Organic Conditioning Oil for Skin & Hair] for my grandson who has psoriasis. My daughter has tried loads of different creams on his skin and some of them work for a short time on his skin but nothing has seemed to work on his scalp and it gets very itchy as well. The first time my daughter tried it on his scalp he had instant relief from the itching and after a few days there was a big difference in the dry patch on his scalp, it's not so flaky. My daughters impressed and my grandsons happy." Jacquie
"My daughter's hands are usually red raw & bleeding with eczema and nothing was helping especially through all the recent handwashing. One week using your Lavender & Rosemary. I'm shocked....Her nails look lovely & healthy too.... your soap made the difference. Will be sticking with it as long as we can." Leigh-Ann
For Sore Skin from Wearing Face Masks
"I wear a face mask at work 7+ hours a day and the [Intensive moisturising Shea Butter & Hemp oil] whip has been the saving grace for my skin, it’s been the only product that’s stopped my skin peeling, I love it 💜& would highly recommend it to anyone struggling with wearing masks for prolonged periods. I honestly can’t believe how good the whip is, my skin was literally falling off my face and it’s healthier looking than it’s ever been now, it’s a god send 💜" Linsey
Itchy Skin & Rashes
"Hi I just thought I’d let you know how much I love the soaps! I was working in the garden yesterday and the leylandii brings me out in an itchy rash. I had a shower using the mint fusion soap. I prepared for a night of intense itchiness which I normally get but... nothing! I think the soap must have helped as it was the only thing I did differently. Amazing! And I’m so glad as I didn’t have any of the anti itch cream I’d normally resort to." Sara
A Good Night's Sleep!
" Just wanted to say how much I love my shampoo bar already and I haven't even used it on my hair yet!! After you dropped my products off I put my lavender and chamomile shampoo bar on my pillow (because it smells so good) and its the first time in months I have had a decent sleep and slept until my alarm! Thank you! I am going to [....] buy another one so I have one for my pillow and one for my hair" Lindsey
All round great soaps! "These have to be the best soaps out there. Fantastic scents, lather well, don't turn to mush and fine with sensitive skin. I can use them right to the final, microscopic sliver!" Paula
"I first came across your wonderful soaps at the vegan festival in Glasgow earlier on this year. I bought a selection and absolutely loved them! I ordered some more online and I have just received my order of hemp and patchouli soaps. They are amazing. I have just opened the package and the smell of the soaps is fantastic! I have psoriasis and the hemp and patchouli soap has made the most incredible difference to my skin. My psoriasis has cleared up considerably. Having had psoriasis for over 40 years, it is a great feeling to have clearer skin! The other soaps that I tried were excellent too, I bought peppermint and lemon and nettle and mint, but I felt my favourite was the hemp and patchouli one." Anne
Skincare for the elderly "I must tell you .... that soap is brilliant, my skin the best it’s ever been. Lady who’s husband makes it should advertise it as being miraculous for the elderly…x” Margaret
For skin prone to Reactions
"I was given your calendula soap at Christmas and it is really terrific. My skin reacts to other soaps and shower gels after a few washes, but since using your Calendula soap all is well! I am delighted with it and will be buying more soon. Many thanks and well done." Joan
"Hello! I picked up one of your shampoos at the dundee vegan festival last year and started using it around a month ago, and it has been the best thing I've ever used for my psoriasis! Thank you so much." Claire
For Painful, Cracked skin
"a friend of mine bought .....Double Mint Shea Butter.... as a gift and I brought it home with me to ireland at Christmas. An auntie of mine who is suffering with painful cracked skin tried some when I offered it and she said it’s like magic. She is elderly and her carer said it’s helped her so much that I left it with her and would just love to be able to send her more" Elizabeth
"One of the shampoo bars (Chamomile & Lavender) helps my sons dandruff as when we ran out it came back with a vengeance but when we got more (buy a few at a time now) it cleared up so much. He still has wee bit but nothing like without it,. We tried so many shampoos but nothing works like the black cat shampoo bars. Thank you so much Nicola for suggesting which one we could try it's fantastic. We buy the soaps too." Cherie
For Clean-feeling hair
"I picked up the shampoo bars this afternoon and have just used for the first time (followed by the apple cider vinegar tip) - my hair smells lush (I used the citrus one) and doesn't feel tuggy or anything like I have had with other shampoo bars - yours lathered up really well and has left my hair feeling clean (if that makes sense!) My 10 year old daughter can't wait to try it on her hair now. She already uses your mild soap on her skin and loves it. Thank you" Carly
"I would like to say thank you for the prompt delivery, and the lovely note contained within the package. I also cannot wait to try out the free sample of patchouli and lime, it smells amazing. The free sample was very much appreciated." Anne
