WE CREATE BEAUTIFUL SOAPS

Handmade soap to be kind to your skin and to our environment.

ABOUT THE SELKIE SOAP CO

We are based in the Highlands of Scotland and we were unhappy with the soaps we as a family were using. Our children have sensitive skin and some soaps were causing their eczema to flair up. We noticed many soaps, especially handwash soaps, had many ingredients within them that have been reported to be harmful (eg: Methylisothiazolinone, a powerful synthetic biocide). We couldn’t believe how many skincare products contain palm oil too!

We also felt uncomfortable with the amount of plastic bottles and packaging used in the skincare products we were buying. We decided to make our own soap so we knew exactly what was going in it and eliminated the need for plastic packaging too.

And it pretty much snowballed from there!

The Soap

The soap we use is coconut based vegetable gylcerine. We use essential oils, not fragrance. Here's a list of all the awesome things about our soap:

  • Vegan friendly
  • NO palm oil
  • Free from parabens, SLS, Surfactants, MPG, petrochemicals, formaldehyde and mineral oils.
  • Not tested on animals
  • Individually hand poured

The packaging

We don't use any plastic in our packaging. We use wax paper to gift wrap the soap which biodegrades at the same rate as leaf litter in a forest. We use twine to tie the wax paper and recycled brown kraft card for the ingredients tag.
