We make handcrafted, artisan soaps using a traditional method known as Cold Process where natural oils and butters are combined with lye and left to cure for at least 4 weeks. Each soap is approximately 90g in weight and may vary in design or scent. Our formula has been carefully curated to create a cleansing, nourishing and creamy bar full of luxurious, high quality ingredients to leave your skin feeling pampered, fresh and silky smooth. Your skin will feel moisturised by our simple, pure and clean recipe. Each soap is unique, designed using a range of swirling techniques using only naturally occurring colorants. Our soaps are lightly scented with essential oil blends to encourage or compliment your frame of mind. Our desire is to impart some of Earth's wisdom and promote a connection with our planet and its gifts so that you can feel grounded, inspired and nurtured by nature and all that it kindly provides.
We aspire to produce our soaps with minimal impact on our environment. We are proudly a zero plastic company, choosing to only use recycled or biodegradable materials. Our soaps are strictly vegan with no animal products, palm oil or animal testing involved with our production process. We endeavour to buy our ingredients from sustainable sources and try to use local produce as far as is possible. Living by the sea we are very sensitive to pollution and try our best to combat its negative effect on our coastline.
The source of our inspiration is our stunning town, Whitstable, on the Kent coast. Here we enjoy belonging to a close, friendly and creative community whose vibrant ideas, arty vibes and quirky ways never cease to inspire. Living by the sea promotes a heightened awareness of the elements and invites you to explore and emerge yourself in all its natural glory. Wild swimming, stomping in the woods, beach walks and hill climbs are all free and available for those who enjoy and need to connect with nature. Whatever the weather, you will often find me outdoors, savouring every moment of fresh, crisp, salty sea air to help me feel grounded and connected to the landscape.
