Our soaps are handmade in the traditional way from a blend of plant oils to create a smooth, creamy lather which leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean and soft. All our soaps contain Unrefined Organic Shea Butter, which has exceptional moisturising and skin healing properties, and some of our soaps are further enriched with Organic Argan oil, Organic Hemp oil, Organic Cocoa Butter or Organic Castor oil to leave your skin feeling extra soft, nourished and happy. Many of our other ingredients are organic too. In fact, about 70% of each bar (excluding water) is made from certified organic ingredients. We never use artificial colours or fragrances, petro-chemicals, synthetic foaming agents & detergents, or preservatives. Instead we add herbs, spices, clays and essential oils to create beautiful colours, textures and scents. Our gorgeous fragrances are created by blending essential oils, which not only smell great but also have their own therapeutic properties. For our base soap we use a blend of Organic Coconut oil, Extra Virgin Olive oil, Unrefined Organic Shea Butter and Fair Trade Organic Palm oil. We are very aware of the devastating effects that so much of the palm oil industry has on natural habitats, local inhabitants and wildlife and it is important to us that the sourcing of our ingredients does not contribute to this. We are happy to source it from those who are producing it in a responsible way and in a way which respects local communities and the environment. The palm oil in our soaps is certified Organic, Fair trade and Sustainable (highest level) and fully traceable back to the growers in Ecuador. The farmers and producers are treated and paid fairly for their oil, communities are supported and empowered and the environment and the wildlife are protected by the use of organic farming practices and a No Deforestation policy.
Our creams are 100% Organic and are sold in glass jars. We whip unrefined Fair Trade Organic Shea Butter with Fair Trade Organic Avocado oil, Hemp oil or Argan oil and add pure essential oils to nourish and moisturise your skin and leave you feeling and smelling gorgeous! They contain no chemicals, preservatives or water - just pure plant goodness. Our Extra Sensitive variety contains no essential oils and is suitable for very sensitive skins and those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
