Hello, I'd like to introduce our latest supplier, The Soap Co. We are head-over-heels with their products, their packaging, and their values. If you'd like to know more (and don't mind a bit of mildly hysterical enthusing), read on...
The Soap Co. create a beautiful range of bath and beauty products, in classic scents such as White Tea and Black Poppy & Wild Fig. These deliciously-scented wares are presented most elegantly in their award-winning monochrome packaging.
This packaging was of course the first thing that drew us to The Soap Co. Statement minimalism is right up our street :)
Inside that gorgeous packaging, I'm pleased to say the soaps themselves are things of beauty. Made by traditional cold-process, they are cut and stamped by hand, in one of our very favourite places (The Lake District), don't you know.
Unlike so many products on the market that can be harsh and strip your skin of its natural oils and so forth, these soaps are enriched with vitamins and an abundance of natural oils, designed to gently moisturise your skin.
So far, so lovely. But what really sets The Soap Co. apart is their ethical credentials. Some plus points to their products that will ease your guilt on various matters... their soaps are:
- Paraben free
- Free of artificial colour
- Never tested on animals
- Suitable for vegans (bar soaps)
- Wrapped in compostable film and recyclable paper (bar soaps)
- Gift boxes are made with recycled paper and are printed with vegetable-based inks
- The gift boxes are also designed to be reused, and are 100% recyclable.
Lastly, and by no means leastly (if you will), The Soap Co. is a social enterprise. The soaps are hand-crafted by a dedicated team of staff who are blind, disabled or otherwise disadvantaged. In such a time, when it feels like our country is giving the cold shoulder to those citizens most in need of support, it's wonderful to see companies like The Soap Co. pushing back the other way. They are offering opportunities for employment and fulfilment where it might seem that none exist.
So that's... smell good, look good, feel good and do good all ticked off. We are smitten.
