Soap

I have been making and selling handmade natural soaps for over a year now.  I go to a local (small) farmer’s market and also have a website The Soap Folk.  Stocks are a little low at the moment because I wasn’t making any during the recent house extension, but I have now been back to work.  I recently had a brilliant result with my Oatmeal & Goat’s Milk soap from a family whose little boy has severe eczema and actually has to go down to London for specialist treatment.  After using my soap they contacted me and told me that it had calmed his eczema down and put in an order for 12 more bars.

This got me thinking and knowing that goat’s milk is very softening to the skin I decided to expand the goat’s milk soap range.  So currently curing I have a Lavender & Teatree, a Geranium, and a Gardener’s Soap containing rosemary, oatmeal, teatree and coffee grounds.  These should all be available in the next few weeks.

I started making my own soap when I decided to cut down on chemicals and am really pleased with the results.  All the soaps are made with oils such as olive, coconut and rice bran, and I only use essential oils for fragrance.  I don’t use palm oil at all and they are all SLS free and not tested on animals.
