Soap

Soap is a natural phenomenon.  It’s been made the same way for thousands of years, originally using wood ash and animal fat but things are a bit more refined these days.  I make my soap the traditional way but I only ever use vegetable oils like olive, coconut, avocado and sunflower.  I also use organic butters like cocoa and shea and natural clays, local oats, and pure essential oils.

All the soaps are handmade by me in small batches to ensure top quality. I never use palm oil, SLS, parabens or any other unnecessary additives or fillers in any of my soaps.  Once made the soap is made it has to cure for 4-6 weeks before it can be used. This is when the fascinating process of ‘saponification’ takes place; when the oils, butters and liquid combine to make a creamy, glycerine rich, moisturising, skin beneficial, bubbly bar of soap without the need for any artificial foaming agents.

I also make a range of artisan soaps which enable me to express my creativity in soap making. For these I use a palm and SLS free soap base which I then add extra oils and other beneficial ingredients to so that they look and smell fabulous and are also still good for your skin. All the soaps are gentle enough for all skin types to use and are suitable for hands and body, although there are specific soaps for very dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. I also make facial soaps which are listed separately in the facial skincare section.

Once the soaps are ready they are wrapped either in handmade sustainable lokta paper or biodegradable cellophane (made from sustainable wood pulp).

    Benson’s Bubbles Dog Shampoo

    Do you have a dirty dog? A pongy pooch? A fetid fido? You get the picture!

    This Dog Shampoo is great for all stages of manky mutts and won’t leave their coats dry and flaky like so many other dog shampoos on the market can do.
