A little about how the handmade soaps started and myself. As a beauty therapist (for over 35 years) and salon owner I am always on the lookout for something special, new and exciting of which making soaps has been one for a long time. During the pandemic I found out how harsh most soaps were. I was on a mission to find some really gentle, natural soaps. After hours of research and trying out lots of different soaps I had no luck , so the next thing was to get myself on a really good soap course, and then getting all my soap recipes assessed and accredited by the registering authorities.
This entailed obtaining a Cosmetic Safety Report and registration with the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal so you can rest assured my soaps are legally compliant.
Family, friends and good clients were given all of my soaps to try as long as they could give me honest feedback ,and I have a lot to thank them for as they must have got fed up trying them all out. Even the colours I use are from Clay, that’s why you will often see some little dark spots in my soaps. Not one soap will ever look the same as they are all handmade. I have also found out that special, personalised soaps for people or small businesses are popular. I hope you enjoy your soap as much as I enjoyed making it, Harriet.
