My name’s Sue McKenna and I’m the owner and creator of The Maldon Soap Company.

I couldn’t find the right products to help my terribly sensitive skin, so I ended up making my own!

That was back in 2012.  After lots of research, testing (on human volunteers), experimentation and safety assessments I launched The Maldon Soap Company on 18th July 2013 and 11 years later I’m still here!

I make every product by hand, from scratch from gorgeous organic oils, butters, flower waters, essential oils and clays. I don’t use tap water, parabens, sls, palm oil, mineral oil or artificial stabilisers in any of my products.  They have all been rigorously tested and have passed the ultimate test – my own super sensitive skin. if I can use them, you can too! They are incredible products that I have made affordable for all, because I believe that planet comes before profit.

Neroli Essential Oil – Why It’s Fabulous

Neroli essential oil has always been one of my favourite fragrances. It's why I use it in so many of my products. It is extracted from the blossom of the Seville Orange Tree (the same oranges used to make marmalade). These slightly bitter oranges have a unique...

Getting my curls back

Look how curly my hair used to be! This photo was taken well before the onset of peri-menopause and hot flushes. I rarely tied my hair back unless I was cooking or gardening. I left it loose and it never seemed to get in the way. Even when I was working fulltime in...

My incredible customers are just the best! Below are a few recent comments about products and Maldon Soap in general.

I love Sue’s website, not only does she tell you exactly what’s in each product but also what each of the ingredients is good for. She goes to the trouble of doing lots of trial size products which is a great idea, it must be so time consuming filling lots of little pots and tins rather than full size ones. I love all of her packaging from the jars, bottles and tins, which are all just lovely! to the soaps, which are so beautifully wrapped in gorgeous papers. When your order arrives it is so beautifully packed in in lovely tissue and jars and tins in recyclable packing – even the noodles made from puffed wheat – it’s just all so fabulous!

I have been using the Camellia Rose Face cream on my poor parched menopausal face. It’s so wonderful – deeply moisturising but non-greasy and sinks in quickly. Arrived beautifully packaged and I’ll definitely be ordering some more soon

Wow, love that you have bought the shampoo bar back Sue. They are really being asked for a lot now. I have just started using one too and my hair loves it. I have not so long but curly hair which gets bit wild and woolly! Have not got a conditioner bar yet as just finishing a bottle, so once done with it, it will be over to you for conditioner bar. xx
