Based in East London, and with a traditional workshop in the Lake District, The Soap Co. creates soap products with sophisticated fragrances, minimalist design and a strong social and environmental ethos.
We are a social enterprise providing training and work opportunities for people who are visually impaired, have disabilities or are otherwise disadvantaged. All income we receive is used in our business so that we can provide these opportunities and more like them.
Ethically & Environmentally Friendly
All our products are made in the UK with natural extracts, added vitamins and are colour and paraben free. We never test our products on animals and our ingredients are 100% vegetable derived or from expertly crafted man-made components. But that’s only half the story.
A bottle that is made from old milk bottles? That is just the beginning! Our award-winning minimalist packaging, with Braille graphics, strives to be as environmentally sustainable as possible.
Subtle Gentle Fragrances
Our range of soaps and lotions come in three delicious fragrances – rich and invigorating Black Poppy & Wild Fig, light and classic White Tea, and reviving Citrus.
Our hand wash and hand lotion are made with moisturising pro-vitamin B5, soothing aloe vera extract and natural antiseptic tea tree oil. The hand lotion is also full of softening cocoa butter. The handmade soap bars contain cocoa butter, pro-vitamin B5, olive, coconut and sustainable palm oil as well as water distilled from the Lake District.
See Ability Not Disability
When you buy a Soap Co. product, you are contributing to our social purpose – the creation of employment for our staff, 80 percent of whom are blind or otherwise disabled or disadvantaged. We empower our staff to build their skills, confidence and independence in our friendly and supportive workplace.
The Soap Co. and our parent organisation, CLARITY Employment for Blind People, trade for good with all our profits reinvested to help create further employment.

With customers including large companies like Accenture and PwC, independent retailers across the country and every individual ethical customer using their purchasing power to change the world.
