About

Each batch of soap is hand made in my workshop, using traditional cold process and hot process methods,  and combining natural ingredients such as vegetable oils and goat milk.  Whenever possible these ingredients are sourced locally, including beer from the Dorset Piddle Brewery, and  Mr Filbert's locally produced rapeseed oil from Milton Abbas.

The naturally occurring glycerine produced during the soap making process remains in the soaps and adds to the moisturising properties of the soap, leaving the skin feeling silky and smooth.   Most commercial "soaps" have the glycerine removed for use in other more expensive products, resulting in an end product which is in fact detergent -  and this can be very drying and a potential irritant to the skin. 

All my products are cruelty free and vegetarian friendly, and some are suitable for vegans.

Fragrance is from carefully blended essential oils, which also add their therapeutic properties.   Fragrance free soaps are also available upon request.

Most of my soaps have no added colourants, with the final shade resulting from the ingredients used and the effects of the soap making process.  Where any colouring is added, this has been created with the use of plant materials such as alkanet or annatto.  Regardless of whether colourant has been added, there may be slight variations in colour from batch to batch, due to the nature of hand made soap.

Namaste products contain no nasties - no animal fats, synthetic colours or fragrances - and definitely no dodgy chemicals such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS) or Parabens (or the widely used Paraben substitute Tetrasodium EDTA which is made from formaldehyde and cyanide). 

There are no chemical hardeners in Namaste soap, and if constantly allowed to remain wet it will quickly dissolve - so to get the maximum out of your soap it is advisable to let it drain well between each use, preferably on a soap dish.

All my products have been fully safety tested by a Cosmetic Chemist and comply with current EU and UK legislation and regulations governing their manufacture and labelling.

Each soap bar weighs 100g minimum, and is wrapped in 100% recycled paper.
