About Us

The Soap Co. is an ethical luxury brand and that creates sophisticated body care products that nurture and care for your skin.

 

 

Based in East London, and with a traditional workshop in the Lake District, all our products are handcrafted in the UK by people who are blind, disabled or otherwise disadvantaged. We take pride in paying attention where it matters, from our award winning minimalist design to locally sourced bottles and compostable soap wrappers.

We think they're great reasons to get your hands dirty. Our promise to you is that we will never rest on our laurels. Our no compromise approach means we will always strive to improve our products and our service both to you - our loyal customers and our invaluable employees who make it all possible.

 

 

Building on our commitment to handcraft our products in the UK, we use only natural botanicals, nourishing vitamins and pure essentials oils. Our products are free from parabens and we never test our products on animals. But that’s only half the story. Just like our design, our ethics are black and white.

We're always striving to reduce our impact on the environment. Our ingredients, bottles and labels wherever possible are sourced from UK suppliers and we have been inspired by Dame Ellen Macarthur's Foundation (EMF)
