As a small, family run, business we are committed to ensuring that we only ever offer high quality products for sale to our customers.
We do this by creating and packing everything we make in small batches by hand. We have strict quality controls in place at every step of the process.
We are always designing new soaps and expanding our range. Our business started back in 2018 with just 8 soaps. Mandy and Becca used to experiment with creating soap in the little shed out in the garden. Now we have an ever growing range of products which includes other items - such as bath bombs, wax melts and wash bags - though we have outgrown the original shed.

The process of creating hand crafted soap and other products, is a long and winding road …
As designer and maker, we take inspiration from the beautiful surroundings here in Cornwall. But we also take inspiration from nature, fond memories and our imagination. From sketch journal to production, we are proud to say we have created the unique things that we have to offer and hope that our passion for creativity reaches out to you.

Our soap is created using
vegetable glycerin. Glycerin is a natural humectant, attracting moisture from the air. When you wash, a thin layer of glycerin is left behind helping your skin attract and seal in moisture, keeping it hydrated. We choose to use this method as it gives so much scope for creativity as well as being an excellent choice for your skin.

We are honoured to be a member of The Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers. In order to be a member of the Guild our cosmetic products must hold an independently tested Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR).
In the UK all products which come into contact with human skin are classed as cosmetics (including bath products) and must hold a CPSR and be registered on the
UK Cosmetic Products Notification Portal.

Likewise home fragrances have to be compliant with
Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) regulations.

We feel it is important for you to know that all of our products are compliant with all of the safety legislation that applies to these different classifications of products.

We spend as many hours at the computer keeping both our products legally compliant and our technical knowledge up to date as we do making the products -
we know which we prefer doing!
