Our Values

At The Soap Shop we believe in inventing effective bath and body products using the goodness that nature provides. Plants, fruits and flowers are used in every single product we make. We also believe that animals shouldn't have to suffer for the cosmetics industry, which is why we took the step of having our company approved by Cruelty Free International and the Vegetarian Society. All of our wonderful, natural ingredients are never tested on animals, and neither are our finished products. We only test on humans! 


We know that having a relaxing, warm bath or shower is extremely beneficial to your mental health and physical wellbeing, and we know that the aromatic scents of essential oils and perfumes can ease away the stresses and strains of the day. Bathing is a necessity, and enhancing it is what we do best!


Our ingredients only ever come from the best, sustainable, ethical, professional sources and we are very environmentally conscious. As a business, we pay to have our waste recycled wherever possible. All of our packaging is made out of recyclable? materials too! Did you know that our charcoal comes from a small 3 man team in the depths of a forest in the south of the UK, and the clay we use in our face masks comes from the Cornish coast? All of our essential oils are produced and extracted in the UK by reputable manufacturers. We always support ethical and local ingredients suppliers as they often share the same views as we do. 

We have been in business for 10 years, and in that time we have really honed our skills in blending aromatic essential oils, extracts and tinctures to make high quality products that really stand out from the crowd. We love nothing more than locking ourselves away in our workshop and playing with different ingredients to try and create exquisite new formulas that we know our customers will love. We believe in honesty, and quality control is top of our list. We truly believe that a cure for everything can be found growing in nature!




Our products are made according to current EU laws, and we work closely with a fantastic cosmetic chemist to produce skin loving formulas that are stable, kind to skin and a real pleasure to use. You can be sure that any product you buy from The Soap Shop has been carefully designed with your skin in mind. Don't be fooled by some of our more brightly coloured products either, they all contain natural ingredients too. We only use skin safe cosmetic colourants, nothing you buy from The Soap Shop will ever stain your skin, or your bath! 


As a firm rule, we do not use harsh foaming agents such as SLS and we do not use parabens to preserve our products either. We chose to use ingredients that are certified as safe and legal. Some of our products are 100% natural as we know some customers will want this option too.  


We are a small team that manufacture products by hand, in small fresh batches in our workshop in the Bedfordshire countryside. We supply lots of shops all over the world with our handmade products and we have even been commissioned to make specific products for celebrities! Our products have been on block busting film sets, and even ordered by Royal connections. Some of our products have also been shortlisted for awards in the skincare industry!
