Prized since ancient times for its valuable healing benefits, rosehip oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids and is also believed to be great for anti-aging. Coupled with lavender and petitgrain essential oils, long used for helping troubled skin and promoting a sense of calm, this soap provides a beautiful relaxing treat leaving skin feeling clean and nourished.
For thousands of years people have understood the value of what Nature provides, but with industrial and commercial development there has been an unfortunate trend towards using cheap, highly processed, synthetic products.
Considering these materials are potentially harmful to our bodies and to the environment, we question this approach and look to natural ingredients for their properties and benefits.
We’re really proud to be working with a wonderful family business in Wales who use their years of skill and knowledge to create gorgeous, gentle soaps from pure, cold pressed oils, botanicals, beautiful dried flowers, fragrant herbs, roots and seeds to give a luxurious bathing experience.
Our soaps are made entirely by hand using the artisan cold process method, combining plant oils and butters with a lye solution, essential oils and a variety of extracts. Each soap comes in its own linen bag – perfect for gifting or simply hanging in the shower!
Our products are safety assessed, conform to EU regulation and are labelled according to the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI).
To make soap, oils are mixed with Lye or potash solution (traditionally made from plant ashes soaked in water in a pot – hence potash). The Lye (or potash) reacts with the oils to form glycerol and soap. This method of making soap is believed to have been around since around 2,800 BC
