What is The Good Soap about?

Why choose your bars from The Good Soap?

The Good Soap is a local company with a global message, we want customers to ditch products contained  in plastic by replacing with our great quality and affordable replacements.  All of our items are handmade in North Wales by us, in our garden workshop. All products are artificial chemical free, all are good for your hair and skin, and also for the water system as they are washed away. It is extremely important to us that our products are cruelty free, absolutely no ingredients that are tested on animals are included in The Good Soap products.

I started making shampoo and soap bars for my own family, so that we could start to eliminate plastic bottles from our own home. I was inspired, like many, by listening to David Attenborough, seeing his sadness about the state of our planet, and it sparked me into action.

Since starting to make my bars in June 2018 I have taught myself many new techniques and have developed more products to add to our range such as Solid Dirty Dog Shampoo, Solid Deodorant and Shaving Bars, Solid Moisturiser, Facial Cleansers, Tinned Moisturisers, Baby Soap and Lip Balms. We are now a team of 3 and I have trained Michelle and Gemma to make our products, and Michelle now makes the bulk of our stock whilst I manage the business. 

The Good Soap policy is never to use plastic packaging as containers for our products, we use recycled and compostable materials in our packaging as much as possible. Sometimes this can be a challenge, especially when choosing the packaging for the solid deodorant bars and moisturiser bars which are oil based products ;) We send out hundreds of parcels a month across the UK and sometimes further and like to think that we are playing our part not only in reducing plastic but also in reducing the amount of artificial chemicals customers use on their skin.

This Is Me!
