Cleansing Tea Tree Soap Bar - The Soap People
Palm Oil Free
Go green with this cleansing natural soap bar with tea tree oil. The tea tree oil gives an invigorating, clean and fresh scent so this soap works wonders to help beat body odour when used in the shower. It's also great for washing hands in the kitchen and is especially good at banishing garlic odours. And, it's an easy plastic-free swap to replace plastic bottled body wash, shower gel and hand wash.
Go GreenTea tree oil has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. So, not only is it great at getting rid of the bacteria that cause body odour, it can also help prevent acne and treat skin infections. A much nicer alternative than it's chemical counterparts.
And, because this tea tree soap is antibacterial, it gives a marvellous muck-busting wash-up for little hands (and big ones) before dinner.
Vera-Bee Tip: If you have more than 1 bathroom you can cut the bar in half.
Looking after your natural soap
These handmade 100% natural soaps have no chemical preservatives so they deserve a little bit of attention to keep them fresh and prolong their lives. Our Soap People soaps have a high percentage of natural glycerine. Great for your skin as its incredibly moisturising but it also attracts water. Therefore, it's really important to keep your soap somewhere dry.
When you are not using your natural soap, it's best to keep it out of water and on a well-drained surface so it can completely dry between uses. Using a wooden soap dish with open slats means air can circulate underneath where water can collect.
We have a range of sustainable wood soap dishes for you to choose from. Or you could get creative and use a few pebbles on a small dish to create the same effect. Plus this looks pretty too. Treating your soap like this will make it last for as long as possible.

About The Soap PeopleHelen started The Soap People because she was horrified with how many plastic bottles of liquid hand wash and shower gel her family, including her three dirt-loving boys, got through. Finding supermarket soap too drying and even the "natural" soaps available to contain all sorts of nasties including SLSs, parabens and palm oil, she decided to create her own. She uses only natural ingredients that are gentle and nourishing including olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and shea butter.
Here are the things that they say NO to at the The Soap People:
No Plastic Packaging
They are plastic free and only use recycled, biodegradable packaging.
No Palm Oil
Around the world the demand for palm oil contributes to widespread deforestation and is pushing wildlife to extinction. Instead they include olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and other nourishing ingredients like shea butter and clays.
No Nasties, No SLSs, No Preservatives, No Artificial Fragrances or Colourings
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a known skin irritant and it is harmful to fish and other aquatic animals as well as polluting our groundwater. Parabens are linked to health issues. Unnecessary chemicals on my skin? No thanks. Instead The Soap People use essential oils and plant-based ingredients that have known beneficial properties.
No Animal Testing
The Soap People soaps are vegetarian and most are vegan too. The Soothing Soap and Sensitive Soap have beeswax and honey in them, but the rest only contain plant and mineral ingredients.
The Soap People soap recipes have been approved by chemists and are officially registered.
