I use a traditional cold-pressed soaping technique to create beautiful clay soaps that smell incredible and create a glorious lather.
To create such a luxurious natural bar of soap takes time. First, I carefully mix plant oils, essential oils and fine clays with a lye solution to create different soap formulas. I then pour the formulas into handmade slab moulds. The soap is left to saponify for 48 hours before it is ready to be cut into bars. After curing for 6 weeks the soaps are then packed and ready for use.
The power of Clay
Made With the Best
I use 10 times more kaolin clay than other soap bases because I believe in the incredibly versatile properties kaolin has to offer. I use British kaolin clay that is high grade, ultra-pure and clean. Kaolin clay is great at improving the circulation to your skin and is often used for managing skin conditions such as acne, dryness, sun damage, irritations and skin rash.
Kaolin’s use as a cosmetic ingredient originated from ancient China and has since been prized for its medicinal value by Romans, Greeks, Egyptians and now us.
Nourishing plant oils
100% natural, organic oils.
My soap base uses a mixture of Coconut, Olive, Palm and Castor oils. These oils are safe, non-toxic and food grade. They are included for their fatty acid profiles to create a bar that is hard, nourishing and lathers like a dream! Because everything we put on our skin quickly absorbs into our bodies, I've ethically sourced the finest raw and organic oils possible.
A note about palm oil.
I only use sustainably sourced palm oil certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Palm oil is one of the only ways to naturally replace the traditional use of tallow and lard. It is very high in palmitic acid which makes my soap hard and longer lasting. With deforestation and the destruction of habitats, it has become imperative that we do our best to ensure that we are not part of the problem. By only purchasing sustainably produced palm oil, we can instead become part of the solution. By omitting palm oil, many companies use chemicals to re-create the many benefits from its fatty acid profiles.
