Almond oil is an excellent moisturiser. It is rich in Vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids, proteins, potassium and zinc, as well as a number of other minerals and vitamins which makes it so good for our skin and hair.
We use the ancient and traditional cold process method and all our soaps are completely handmade in small batches using fully natural ingredients. None of our soaps are tested on animals with the exception of our “Doggy Soap” which definitely has been! All of our soaps have been safety tested and fully comply with the Cosmetics Directive and EU regulations for selling (EC) 1223/2009. Our fresh, unpasteurised Goats' Milk comes from a prize-winning herd of Golden Guernsey Goats based in a village five miles from us. It’s "goat to soap" in just a few hours. Any fragrances we use are essential oils, mostly for their therapeutic benefits, and are of the very best quality. Where we have exfoliators we use environmentally friendly products like oatmeal, pumice and seaweed. We do not use parabens, SLSs, artificial perfumes, microplastics, artificial preservatives or palm oil.
Caring for your soap
Handmade soaps naturally have a high glycerin content, which is great for your skin, but it also means that the soap needs to dry out between uses. If left in standing water, the soap will break down quickly and become mushy. To extend the life of your handcrafted soap, store it somewhere to dry out between uses, place it in a well-draining soap dish or rack.
