This lovely creamy soap, which we decided to leave fragrance free to complement the underlying spicy aroma, is made from all natural ingredients. The spices not only add a gentle aroma, but they also provide a gentle exfoliating action on the skin, removing dead skin cells and leaving it feeling smooth and supple.
Why add spices to our already beneficial ingredients…
Spices are no longer the exotic luxury they once were, renowned for adding flavour and colour to food they also had an important role in traditional eastern medicine and crept into folklore and home remedies in the western world.
Nutrient rich and containing antioxidants, they are antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory, used in cosmetics they enhance skin and leave a natural glow.
No added fragrance
How do we do it?
This soap is made using the 'Cold Process' traditional technique of soap making where the oils and butters are gently heated just enough to melt them and start the saponification process. Keeping the temperatures low retains the properties of the oils and butters. Our base ingredients in every bar of ‘cold process’ soap are olive oil, which is gentle and kind to the skin, blended with shea butter for added moisture, castor oil and coconut oil, all of which are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients with the added bonus of creating a luxurious and creamy bar with a lovely lather.
Care for your soap: What? Care for soap? Are you kidding? No, you've spent good money on this, it smells amazing, and it's made with beautiful, natural ingredients and untold hours of love - you want it to last.
Keep it dry. Nobody likes a soggy soap. Your soap is happiest when allowed to dry out fully between uses. The easiest way to do this is to keep it on a soap dish which allows water to drain away and air to circulate. Pop a nice bamboo soap dish into your basket here.

Environmental: As a small artisan business one of our main aims includes finding sources that are as environmentally friendly as possible. We recycle as much as we can on the boat and on our travels, as well as trying to use minimal packaging, with what we do use being recycled. We do have to seal the soaps, so have done so in a thin compostable wrap. We hate plastic and are diligently looking for sustainable bags for popping in the post that will still allow your goodies to arrive in the condition you expect them to be, dry and perfect.
