Purely Local Soap

(2 customer reviews)


Purely local soap is the most local soap money can buy – as long as you live in Essex! A perfect local present wrapped in a local map of  Essex with Maldon bang in the middle!

Freshly handmade using as many local ingredients as possible – local gluten free oat milk and oats, local rapeseed oil and local honey.

The only things not local are a small amount of coconut oil and the sweet orange essential oil that fragrances the soap – Maldon is rubbish for growing coconut and orange trees!

The best thing about this soap is the freshness of the ingredients and the lack of ‘soap miles’ that the ingredients have undergone.

What’s in Purely Local Soap?

Cold pressed rapeseed from Colchester.

Gluten free oats and oatmilk from Cambridge.

Local honey from Coggeshall.

This soap is very moisturising and, due to it’s high oat content, is good for  treating the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema. The cold process method produces a soap that is full of glycerine which is a humectant. This mean it helps carry moisture into the skin so it becomes even more beneficial for dry skin conditions.

This soap contains no colours, the toffee colour is just the natural colour that soap goes when honey is added. None of my soaps contain any artificial foaming agents. So you get a soft gentle lather that cleans your hands and body without stripping the skin of its moisture.

Each soap is hand wrapped in handmade paper which is printed with an old fashioned map of the Maldon area.  Makes a great local gift.


Quantative Ingredients:

Local rapeseed oil (sodium rapeseedate), coconut oil (sodium cocoate), local gluten free oatmilk and oats (avena sativa), local honey (mel), organic sweet orange oil (citrus aurantium dulcis).

    Wow! This soap is fantastic. It’s creamy and gently scrubby and has a lovely orangey smell. It doesn’t leave your hands feeling tight like some soaps can. They feel soft and moisturised so that must be the oats, goats milk and honey. I love that it is a local product as I love supporting local businesses and this way I can support not only Maldon Soap but all the local business where the produce has come from.

    This soap left my skin feeling super moisturised and smells lovely, the scent is not too strong. I loved the gentle scrubby bits in it, a lovely soap that didnt leave my skin feeling dry
