Our Story

Handmade Natural Skincare

Handmade Soaps & Skincare family run business with strong environmental principles

The story of our handmade soaps & skincare family business begins in lockdown!

Living on a Mid Wales farm, we are a family with 3 children, 2 girls and a boy who all play a part in the business.

We have experimented with homemade soap at home for a number of years which we have used ourselves and the children have given as presents at Christmas and birthdays.  They have also experimented with different fragrances and colours. 

Inspired during lockdown we handcraft artisan soaps in Wales using natural oils and butters

We decided to expand on this idea and take it forward starting our own family skincare business born out of lockdown and using the circular economy where we can to support our positive environmental ethos.  

During the initial lockdown we initiated the idea as a family of starting our own business selling natural handmade soaps with no palm oil, preservatives, detergents and plastics

We wanted to package them in recycled/compostable packaging to minimise any negative impact on the environment and utilise the increasing circular economy.

Welsh Family Business Creating Handmade Soaps & Skincare

Martyn and myself make the handcrafted soaps.  We also ensure that we meet all the legislation requirements of selling cosmetics (which is what a soap is).  All our soap formulations for sale are certificated and registered on the cosmetics website.                      

The two girls are the social media gurus and also help to cut the handmade soaps.  They are good with young people, ideas, and themes. During busy times they are experts at packaging and ensuring your soap is dispatched on time.  

To complete the positive outcome from lockdown and full family involvement in our skincare business, our youngest takes all the waste paper, cardboard that we and friends create and shreds it. We use this as the packaging that you will find in your box containing the soap. The circular economy, a positive arising from lockdown.
