The Dartmoor Soap Company follows an ancient artisan recipe to make beautiful, natural soaps using the traditional cold-process method. Each soap is hand stirred, hand cut and individually decorated. Following the success of our larger bars, we have now developed a range of guest soaps at very competitive prices. We have been trialing these in our own holiday cottage with great success. Holiday makers not only love the story behind the local ingredients but are also very much appreciate of the extra touch upon arrival.
In a nutshell our soaps are:
- Made using ingredients locally sourced on Dartmoor
- Our lavender is grown here in our garden on Dartmoor
- Our honey and beeswax comes from a local apiarist in North Bovey
- All (bar one!) of our soaps are made with pure spring water from Dartmoor
- Our Dartmoor Ale soap is made with undiluted Jail Ale from Dartmoor Brewery in Princetown.
Our soaps are also free from SLS, SLR, parabens & palm oil, contain no animal fats and are made using 100% natural oils. All our products have been assessed by an independent cosmetic safety assessor.
Each new order over 10 soaps includes a free A5 leaflet outlining the source of the local ingredients for you to display in your guest information folder.
