They use the finest natural ingredients that are full of essential vitamins and minerals to help boost the skin’s natural balance.


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 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 People

Helen 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.
