Vegan and Natural Soap

To help you choose between all of our lovely soaps, we have put together a guide to find the best soap for your skins needs. All of our soaps are made from kind, gentle and plant based ingredients and are of course all vegan and cruelty free. Some natural soaps contain beeswax, honey, milk and some typical high street soaps (made with harsh chemicals) also contain animal fat which is why we have brought together the best natural and vegan soap bars to shop in one place. They are free from skin-irritant ingredients such as SLS/SLES and parabens.

Our Soap Makers

We stock three brands of all-over-body soap:

  • Bean and Boy, a family-run business making soap by hand in Southend-on-Sea, UK. “We started making soap for our family when our daughter developed a mild form of eczema that was made worse by commercially-produced soaps and washes. We spent months researching, and tried out loads of different recipes and combinations to find the ones that work for our daughter’s skin – and for us too.” Stacey's hand made soaps take up to six weeks to cure. The soaps come wrapped in recycled kraft paper with naturally dyed yarn and recycled tags. 
  • Wild Sage & Co soaps are made in Julie's workshop in an old converted barn, surrounded by her traditional cottage garden. “We are a small family-run business hand crafting cold processed soaps and skin-loving balms from natural ingredients. We believe skin care should be simple and our ingredients derived from nature.” Each soap is wrapped in paper.
  • Soap Daze, made by Sharon, create vegan soaps with natural ingredients, nourishing essential oils and botanicals. "Based in Devon, all our products are handmade and kind to the skin and planet".

We do also stock a cleansing specific soap for your face which you will find in our skincare collection and a number of soild shampoo and solid conditioner bars in out hair collection.

 Ingredients

Our soaps are made with a soap base of either (or a mix of) Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Responsibly Sourced Palm Oil and Avocado Oil. Plant based butters are super nourishing and our soap bars do not leave your skin feeling dry like many conventional soap bars.

Most of our soap bars are scented with pure essential oils to not only provide mind and mood boosting qualities, but skin benefits as well. However, if you have super sensitive skin or want to use a soap bar on your baby, opt for essential oilfree.

A selection of our soap bars contain plant based exfoliants such as oat, poppy seeds, pumice and seaweed to gentle scrub your skin instead of micro-plastics. These soaps are not recommended to use on your face.

Our Bean & Boy soaps contain RSPO certified sustainable palm oil. Some people choose to shop palm oil free however we choose to still stock Bean & Boy soaps since their entire supply chain is traceable. Industry leaders are not calling for a complete palm oil boycott; palm oil is a high yielding crop and if every product containing palm oil switched to another oil overnight, the problem would just move, not disappear.

Castile Soap

We stock castile Soap, a vegetable-based soap made from olive oil from the Castile region of Spain. It's made from completely natural ingredients and free form animal fats and synthetic ingredients. It's non toxic and biodegradable. It can be used for cleaning counters, sinks, baths, showers, floors, toilets, dishes, washing clothes, people (including kids), pets and vegetables so long as it's adequately diluted and much more! Find out What is Castile Soap & How To Use It here.

All of our castile soaps can be used for all over body washing!

Bar Soap as a Body Wash

Solid Shaving Soap Bar

Any of our soap bars (except those with added exfoliants) can be used for shaving. Best used with a shaving brush, latherthem up and brush the frothy lather on the desired area, however if you're in a rush, you can lather the soap bar up in your hands or directly on your body. Team them with a zero waste safety razor of course!

For shaving, we recommend our shaving soaps in a tin, especially if you are shaving intimate areas or your face and neck. We also stock a specific pH balanced liquid soap for intimate ladies.

Natural Solid Soap Bars For Travelling

  • Lemongrass & Poppyseed by Bean & Boy- Lemongrass is a mild version of Citronella and helps keeps insects at bay. Although not as powerful, it's not an irritant which Citronella is to some.
  • Lemongrass & TeaTree by Wild Sage & Co.
  • Our Spearmint & Rosemary soap bar by Bean & Boy contains Apple Cider Vinegar so is great as a conditioner too which makes it the perfect travelling companion.

Whilst travelling, cut up or grate a bar of soap and take just what you need. You can also use our bars to make homemade hand or dish soap.

  • Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life to win the lottery. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did

  • Read this!!!

    I made millions through lottery spells with the help of Doctor Odunga. I contacted Doctor Odunga through his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com to perform a spell for me to win the Powerball Lottery in Florida. After I contacted him, he replied to me and said I should only pay $200 for the spell and I should trust in him. It was hard at first to let my money go but I had to keep faith. I was surprised when he gave me the winning numbers to play the Saturday Powerball Lottery. I bought the ticket and truly speaking, the winning numbers emerged from the Powerball numbers and I was the winner of the lottery. I won $535.4 Million USD as the Powerball Lottery Winner. I am very happy to share this testimony of Doctor Odunga and want you too to meet him at his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats-app +2348167159012

  • Finally!!! I am the happiest woman to be called a mother soon. I am saying this because I am very grateful to Dr. Odunga for helping me with my relationship problems faced in my marriage due to the issues of infertility after 7 years of marriage. My husband and I have tried so many options for a successful fertility including IVF but it was futile. My husband’s family have said different abusive words to me and my husband and he almost stopped loving me after many years of marriage without a child from me. It was a long time of sorrow for me and it affected me mentally. Dr. Odunga was introduced to me by a friend whom he helped and that was how I contacted Dr Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and within 2 days of contact, he did the spell and I successfully conceived after sleeping with my husband as he said. It was very surprising and overwhelming with joy and still unbelievable because I have been seeing testimonies of spell casters but never believed I would be helped by one. Dr. Odunga is indeed a great spell caster. Get in contact with this man to help you solve your problems at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com or Whats App his phone number at +2348167159012
