What is Natural Soap?

Our soap barsSo natural soap.

When we call our soap ‘natural’, what we mean is that all the ingredients we use to make it are natural. What is our definition of natural? Well a commonsense one. If it comes from or is a plant, vegetable, mineral or animal byproduct (e.g. honey or milk) then its natural. Hence our use of e.g. olive oil (from the olive fruit) and shea butter (from the shea nut) in our soaps.

Note: all our soaps are vegetarian and therefore no actual parts of animals (e.g. lard or cochineal) are present in any of our soaps.

If something is artificially manipulated in a lab (ie compounds are put together in ways that don’t occur in this way in nature), then this won’t make it into our soaps.

These sorts of compounds are often referred to as ‘nature-identical’ ingredients and cover so-called ‘natural’ colourants like micas, or ‘natural’ fragrance oils.

Many ‘natural’ soaps contain these ingredients, Ours do not. If it hasn’t been extracted directly from the plant (or isn’t still a plant – e.g. seaweed or carrot powder), then it doesn’t make it into our soaps.

I eat olive oil and I can tell you, olive oil is definitely not soap!

olivesYes indeed.

In our daily lives, we are used to encountering (and eating!) all sorts of oils; olive oil being a common one.

How is it then that this liquid I eat on my salad is now solid and I can wash with it?

Confusing, right?

As the majority of us aren’t trained chemists, this can be a hard one to get your head around.

In order for liquid olive oil to become solid and, importantly, something we can wash with, then it needs to undergo a change known as saponification.

Saponification is the process by which oils (or fats and butters) become soap.

How do you saponify olive oil, well you need to use an alkali or ‘lye’.

Do we use lye to make our soaps?

Yes we do, otherwise the olive oil we sent you in the post wouldn’t clean you. It would just be olive oil.

In our case, it would also still be liquid. (Not very helpful – and pretty messy for the postman – given that our soaps are packaged in non-water-tight biodegradable sleeves as opposed to bottles!).

BUT HERE’S THE IMPORTANT PART – There is no lye in our soap bars.

Say what?

Have a look at our ingredients.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we, like every other cosmetics company that’s doing things right, list our ingredients in what looks like weird Latin.

(I know, we don’t think it looks very friendly either, that’s why we also offer a plain english version on our website and packaging).

Why do we do this and what has this got to do with lye?

No lye in our formal ingredient listing = no lye in our soap bars

Cutting natural soap barsBy law we have to list all the ingredients our soap contains in INCI format (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients), so that they can be understood the world over.

If there were lye in our soap and we didn’t list it in our ingredients, then we would be breaking the law.

So no lye in our ingredient listing means no lye in our soaps.

‘Lye’, or an alkali, IS used to saponify our olive and coconut oils (make them into soap), but none remains in our final bars.

This is because our formulas are very carefully calculated, with our chemist, to ensure this.

I don’t speak INCI. Are you SURE the lye really doesn’t appear in your ingredient listing?

Good question budding chemist! The fact that lye is used to make our soap is indeed reflected in our ingredient listing.

So, in short, Olive Oil (INCI Olea Europea), an acid, is made into soap, or ‘saponified’, by adding an alkali (lye), or ‘base’, to it.

The alkali we use is called Sodium Hydroxide and therefore what is produced is the salt of olive oil (Sodium Olivate, or olive oil soap) plus glycerin.

Olive Oil you eat = Olea Europea.
Olive Oil you wash with = Sodium Olivate.

Cool hey! As I’m sure you’ve already worked out, the ‘Sodium Cocoate’ in our ingredient listing is indeed the salt (or soap) of Coconut Nucifera – coconut oil to you and me.

And the glycerin? Well herein lies the rub. The soap making process naturally produces lovely moisturising glycerin. We leave this exactly where it belongs – in your soap bars to nourish your skin. This is one of the reasons our soaps feel so great to use.

Oh, what do many companies do? They remove the glycerin from their bars. Why? Because its valuable and can be sold on to other parts of the cosmetics industry.

So all soap is lye free then?

No, this isn’t necessarily the case.

If a soap formula is badly calculated or sloppily made then it is very possible that the final soap bars contain lye.

Safe soap making relies on proper chemistry; and an improper understanding of the reaction and process can result in harmful bars that contain lye.

Every aspect of our process – from formulation through to making and curing the soap – is professionally managed and properly controlled.

Sodium Hydroxide? I don’t like the sound of that

Sounds scary doesn’t it. Well perhaps, but chances are you’ve actually eaten it! Have a quick google on olives or pretzels. So probably actually not that scary.

Also, you CANNOT make soap without it* and humans have been making soap with it in various forms for 1000s of years.

And remember, NONE of it remains in our final soap bars.

*Note that liquid soap is made with potassium hydroxide.

Do you make your own alkali/sodium hydroxide?

Traditionally (in the US for example) the alkali used to make soap was created by running rain water through wood ash. The concentration of the solution was then estimated by placing an egg in the solution. A sinking egg signalled a weak solution, a floating egg, a stronger one. Cool hey?

When we first started making soap we asked our chemist whether we could use the ash-egg method to make our own alkali.

Not surprisingly, he said no. (A good call we reckon as its not really all that exact!). The ash-egg method also doesn’t comply with the cosmetic regulations our industry is governed by, so we don’t use it.

Our Sodium Hydroxide is produced for us in a very controlled manner so that we know its exact concentration. If you’re interested, its production method dates back to the late 18th century, starts with salt (that you eat), and is the invention of the French chemist LeBlanc.

So is your soap really natural?

Coconut Milk being readied for soap makingWhat’s your definition of natural?

If you mean – is it naturally ocurring and does it grow on a tree? Then the answer is, of course, no.

If you mean – is it only made from ingredients that people would commonly understand as being natural; in other words those that come directly from a plant, mineral or animal byproduct? Then the answer is yes.

We would add though that the only animal byproducts we use in our soaps are honey and milk (no actual animal parts are used, such as lard or cochineal).

Also, because we make all natural soap, some of our oils have necessarily undergone a saponification process (using an alkali), in order to change them from being an oil you can eat into oil that makes you clean. NONE of that alkali we use remains in our final soap bars.

Our soaps are also free from ‘nature-identical’ ingredients, such as micas and synthetically-produced so-called ‘natural’ colourants and fragrances.

They are also produced using our unique ‘extra cold’ method. This involves a refusal to heat our oils* (as the majority of even ‘cold process’ soap makers do), and a focus on respecting and supporting the natural soap making reaction with minimal interference.

(For example, we never try to ‘force cure’ our soaps with the use of dehumidifiers. Our soaps simply air dry for as long as is necessary. Usually at least 4 weeks, often up to 6).

*The only exception are tiny amounts of very stubborn cocoa butter in the depths of winter, that we heat very very slowly.

Is there any soap that does grow on a tree/is naturally occurring?

Horse ChestnutYes, in a way.

While no actual hard soap, or bottled liquid soap, grows on trees; nature does produce a number of plants that contain saponins.

While not ‘soap’, these plant-containing saponins can be used to wash with and to wash clothes.

For example, when pounded, the yucca root produces a soap-like substance that can be used for washing, as do horse chestnut seeds. Traditionally, the latter was used to clean cloth and even delicate tapestries in the UK.

Anyone who has cooked lentils will also have noticed the bubbles they produce when you rinse them. Again, this is to do with their natural saponins. In India, lentil-water is still used by some today to wash their hair.

So naturally-occurring washing options are out there, but personally I’d take the convenience of a well-formulated, 100% biodegradable, natural soap bar over taking a pestle and mortar + yucca root into the bath.

Can you wash your hair with soap?

Announcement 16/03/2017
Following years of development, and with the kind help of testers, we’re beyond excited to announce the launch of TWO totally natural shampoos, well suited to even hard water conditions.

soap 4 (47)This is a question I’ve been asked every week this year so far, so I thought I’d share a recent email I wrote to a customer on the subject.

Have you ever tried/thought about washing your hair with soap?

We’d love to hear your experiences or reservations! You can leave your comments at the end of this post, or get in touch with us here.


Can you wash your hair with your soap?

Although not specifically formulated for use as such, many of our customers are pleased with the results they achieve when using some of our soap bars as shampoos.

The most popular in general are the Gentle Goat’s Milk and Ylang Ylang Flower. For those with dry/sensitive skin and scalps though, the Castile soaps generally win out.

The thing about washing the hair with bar soap is that its effectiveness/whether people like it is down to a whole host of factors:

  • hair length
  • scalp type/sensitivity
  • water quality & measures taken to mitigate against hard water
  • technique
  • what the hair has previously been washed with

Washing hair with soap_ALL NATURAL SOAP CoThe most unintuitive part of washing your hair with soap (as opposed to the body) is that it won’t necessarily entirely wash off the hair, as it does with the body, in hard water areas.

The minerals in the hard water react with the soap, deposit on the hair and can leave it feeling ‘unclean’ or ‘waxy’. This is easily resolved by using a simple acidic rinse after washing the hair with soap. (Instructions below).

In soft water this is generally not a problem though, and you should be able to wash your hair with soap and have it rinse away. Whether you like how your hair feels though, will be related to whether you’re using an appropriate bar, and the factors mentioned above.

In general, people with short hair and non hyper sensitive scalps, should do well with the Goat’s Milk and Ylang Ylang bars. The Castile soaps tend to work well with those with very dry, curly hair and they are simply loved by our customers with dreads.

Depending on what you’ve been washing your hair with before, you may need to go through an adjustment period. Shampoos/conditioners with silicones and other plastics in them leave a coating on the hair that will need to be removed before natural shampoo (bar soap) will work. The rinse described below is a good start, but in general this will just take time – on average, anywhere from 1 wash to 1 month of washes. During this adjustment period, the hair can feel excessively dry or oily but this should normalise in time.

Technique is also important – particularly with the less foamy Castile soaps. You can either ‘hand lather’ and apply the foam to the scalp, or rub the bar directly into the scalp, making sure to cover the entire scalp. It is not necessary to ‘wash’ the ends of longer hair, as these will be cleaned when you rinse out the shampoo. Excessive scrubbing of the bars on the lengths of the hair can lead to knotting.

Acidic Hair Rinse

This is really easy – simply add 2 tablespoons of vinegar to a 1ltr jug and take into the shower with you. When you’ve finished cleaning your hair with the soap bar, fill your jug up with water from the shower and pour over the head.

If your hair is long, you can make the rinse last twice as long (and therefore increase the detangling benefits) by only using half a jug-full, then re-filling the (half-full) jug again and rinsing.

Detangling long hair with your fingers while rinsing is also a good idea.

The amount of vinegar is a guide and you may need to adjust the proportions to suit. In general, more vinegar = more conditioning/detangling effects, but only up to a point. You don’t want to be using neat vinegar on the hair, as this may actually cause an opposite drying effect.

Whether you rinse the hair with water after the vinegar rinse is a matter of personal taste. The faint vinegar smell does go away once the hair is dry, but some people like to doubly make sure and rinse again with water. This will however, cause the hair cuticles not to lie as flat, and therefore not look as shiny and be more prone to tangling. If the final (post vinegar) rinse is of very cold water though, this can help increase shine.

Which vinegar to use?

The most popular hair-rinse-vinegar right now seems to be raw Apple Cider vinegar. Personally, I find this too drying though and love cheap and simple White Wine Vinegar.

If your scalp is particularly itchy/hair is very dry/frizzy, you can add a teaspoon of honey to the vinegar (making sure it is smooth, not crystalline and well dispersed in the vinegar-water). This also can help with the vinegar smell.

Note: in Sri Lanka, limes are rubbed on the hair to increase shine. I haven’t tried this myself, but could be an interesting and fragrant option!

Also, one of our customers with hyper sensitive skin (and very hard water) has decided to buy in distilled water to wash her hair with (as opposed to using the vinegar rinse).

Note: If your skin is VERY sensitive, then the vinegar rinse is best done over the bath (so you only get it on your hair, not skin).



I hope washing your hair with bar soaps works for you but do bear in mind that for a few people sadly it simply doesn’t work. The convenience and lack of plastic that one bar soap/shampoo affords though, is for me at least, a good reason to give it a fair trial.

If you have any questions about washing your hair with our soap bars, then please get in touch, or leave us a comment below.

We’d also love to hear from you if you fancy sharing your experiences of washing your hair with soap bars.

Ooh and for those of you that have read this far, we can confirm that the rumours are true – we are indeed developing some ALL NATURAL SOAP Co shampoo bars! Like all our products, these will only be released when we’ve got them just right, but if you fancy becoming a future tester then please get in touch.

Award Winners!

Wow – what an incredible summer its been so far.

Holiday weather at home, and a flurry of soap awards! (no… the other kind of soap :))

2014 was the first year we were brave enough to enter the prestigious Free From Skincare and Green Parent Awards.

We sent 4 soaps out for judging, and an amazing 4 came back with badges.

We couldn’t be happier.

As a very small brand up against all the big well-known names in natural skincare we were delighted just to have our soaps shortlisted. The fact that 3 of our soaps were awarded medals, well, we’re just over the moon.

We’ve included some extracts from the judges comments below, which we hope you’ll find interesting.

For us, some of the most noteworthy were the comments about the suitability of our products for sensitive skin and their excellent value for money. (more on this below the images)

Which soaps won which awards?

Coco Castile Silver

Our Coco Castile soap won a Silver Free From Skincare Award

Here’s what some of the judges had to say about this extra gentle soap:

“A lovely buttery scent, very natural, more oily than soapy, left a nice level of moisture on my hands. It is mild and creamy … Lovely packaging and very clear labelling”

“Extremely gentle on my sensitive, dry skin, but cleansed effectively even after I had been gardening or cooking”

Our Shea Luxury soap won a Silver Green Parent Natural Beauty AwardShea Luxury Silver

When we did a quick straw poll among some of our regular extra sensitive-skinned customers, this bar was a key front-runner of the ones they recommended we enter.

It seems they were right! Thanks so much for your input here, Stacey in particular.

A number of men told us that this is their go-to soap for shaving their heads!

Our Oatmeal Soother soap won a Bronze Free From Skincare Award

Oatmeal Soother BronzeHere’s what some of the judges had to say about this exfoliating, yet sensitive-skin-friendly scrub:

“Mild milky fragrance, very clean smelling and neutral. It didn’t have much lather, but was very creamy, cleansing and exfoliating” 

“Gentle to skin and soothing” 

“Excellent value for money – a luxury soap for a great price” 

“I found this by far the most all-round lovely and eczema friendly soap I’ve used”

Our Rose Geranium soap received a Free From Skincare Award Commendation

Rose Geranium CommendedAs the award organisers describe it, commendations go to “really good, well-made products that sit well in the natural or ‘free from’ skincare market.”

Thanks very much indeed!




Industry recognition for our sensitive skin soaps

A key goal for us when we started making soap was to make a generous part of our range suitable for sensitive skin (as well as all other skin types). Many companies merely remove the scent from their generic formula and then deem it a ‘sensitive soap’.

We were keen to go further than that, and:

– take sensitive skin as a starting point for a soap (not a tacked on after thought)
– create a variety of different formulas to take into account various ingredient sensitivities and allergies
– offer a range of different textures to choose from
– make the pleasure of washing with a scented soap something that those with sensitive skin could also enjoy

We definitely haven’t achieved all our goals in this area just yet, but to have our sensitive soaps officially recognised by such a prestigious allergy and sensitivity-focused organisation as the Free From Skincare awards, we can, I think, feel hopeful that we’re on the right track.

The added recognition from the renowned Green Parent magazine also makes us feel very happy that we’re making a good start at addressing the washing needs of the family as a whole – sensitive skin and children’s skin often being pretty similar.

Feedback and comments, as ever, very welcome.

Excellent value for money

Something else we have also been very focused on right from the start are our prices. ‘Posh soap’ (as handmade soap is often referred to as), needn’t really be posh at all.

We see no reason why healthy, enjoyable soap shouldn’t be part of as many peoples’ everyday experience as possible, and so work very hard to keep our prices at a level that allows this.

That’s why it was so great to see the “excellent value for money” comment in the judges’ feedback. We aren’t a large or even medium-sized organisation with a giant marketing budget, and so, as is extremely rare nowadays, most of what you are paying for when you buy one of our bars is actually the very high quality & ethical ingredients that goes into them.

Its interesting to note that the Free From Hard Soaps Gold medal went to a palm oil based bar that retails for around 3-4 times more than our Silver and Gold award winners.

And so to next year

I wonder if we should enter some more awards? I imagine this sort of rigorous external testing is something that you find useful when trying to decide which soaps to buy?

If there are any soaps in particular you would like us to send out into the world, or indeed specific awards you’d like us to enter, please do let us know.

Bee-friendly Honey

It’s pretty easy to find Fair Trade honey nowadays, but, to our surprise, not so easy to find honey that also takes into account the welfare of the bees.

Quite surprising we think given the extensive publicity that the decline in bee populations has received recently in the press and on social media.

BeeAs most of the ALL NATURAL SOAP Co range is vegan, you won’t find many animal or insect derived products in our ingredients.

When we do allow non-vegan ingredients into our soaps, we take care to ensure that they are of highest standards – not just in terms of quality, but also ethically.

That’s why we were so pleased to discover Tropical Forest honey! Not only is this honey Fair Trade, it is also wild-gathered and the bees aren’t subject to awful practices such as sugar-feeding or being pumped full of antibiotics.

This is the only honey we deem responsible and ethical enough to include in our soaps, and are therefore proud to shout about it! We use this honey in our Oatmeal Soother soap.

Here’s what Tropical Forest have to say about their honey

Organic Forest Honey, Soil Association certified, gathered from wild bees deep in the incredibly diverse, highland rainforests of SW Ethiopia. 

Wild swarms occupy the hives and start filling them with honeycombs. After a couple of years the beekeepers return, climb the trees and crop the honey, leaving some for the bees. 

More of these beekeepers join their Beekeepers Association every year confident that they can raise their families on this income from a Fair Trade market. 

– A Fair Trade product from village beekeepers 
– Harvested from wild bees in the Ethiopian rain forests 
– Cold pressed : high pollen content 
– No sugar feeding, antibiotics or varroacides 
– No GMO`s for hundreds of miles

Shortlisted for Awards

FFSA Shortlist lo-resSo, we might have some news…

In a flurry of excitement back in February, we decided to send our soaps out into the world… to be judged…

I know, I know, what a thing to subject our soapy offspring to. But we did it anyway. Mean hey? Well perhaps not.

Being an allergy sufferer, I’ve been a long-time follower of the Free From Food Awards.

They’ve put me on to such deliciousness as a vegan, palm oil free ‘cheese’ that actually tastes nice! (the Blue Cheese being a personal favourite); and a whole host of other treats.

A few years ago though, all my Christmases came at once when they launched the Free From Skin Care Awards.

Like their tasty counterpart, these are of course concerned with products that exclude the common food allergens; but they also take into account the use of artificial additives and, extra wonderfully, also ethical issues.

There was nothing for it – we had to enter.

Then came the hard part, which soaps should we send to be judged?

Being all natural, vegetarian (mostly vegan) and palm oil free, our entire range was eligible to enter.  Given the allergy focus though, we thought it best to stick with our soaps that are particularly good for sensitive skin.

For variety, we chose a pretty soap in our signature scent, the Rose Geranium; our mildest soap, initially actually created for a woman with a severe sun allergy, the Coco Castile; and, of course, the sensitive-skin friendly & scrubby favourite, the Oatmeal Soother.

Months passed…

Nails were bitten…

FFSA Commended 14 Lo-resFear abounded.

It seems though, we had nothing to worry about.

Totally taken aback and flattered beyond belief (particularly as we’re such fans of the awards!) we recently discovered that ALL of the soaps we’d entered had gained some sort of recognition!

Giddiness took over.

It turns out that our Rose Geranium has been officially ‘commended’ in the Hard Soaps category, and BOTH our Coco Castile and Oatmeal Soother have been shortlisted to win!

We literally couldn’t be happier 🙂

Rigorous testing is going on right now of all the shortlisted products, and the winners will finally be announced at the Love Natural, Love Organic show at London Olympia on 4 July.

It would be truly amazing to win, but we’re extremely happy to have got this far.

More About the Free From Skin Care Awards

“The FreeFrom Skin Care Awards are designed to celebrate and encourage skincare and cosmetics manufacturers who create products that exclude many of the allergens, chemicals, fragrances and artificial additives associated with skin and health concerns, ethical and environmental concerns, and which may appeal to those looking for purer or more natural cosmetics and products for their skin, including those with problem skin conditions.

Entries are initially assessed by panels of independent skincare and natural health experts who choose products to commend, and products to shortlist for an award of excellence. These shortlisted products then undergo a rigorous month of testing by experienced Beauty Bible testers before the best in each category are selected as gold, silver and bronze winners in the final judging stage.”

Another Award

And for those of you that have read this far, we can reveal that we know for certain that we’ve actually won another very prestigious award!

I know, we’re totally bowled over.

We’ve been sworn to secrecy so can’t yet reveal the details just yet, but Watch. This. Space.

NEW! Minty Fresh Scrub Bars

Minty Fresh Scrub Bar_All Natural SoapWe’ve been trialing this variety on the stall now for a couple of months now and you know what, we think it may actually be overtaking our Citrus Sunshine bars as our current customer favourite!

Both men and women have told us that they really like the scent, and that the scrubby texture is just right. Some women have been using it to help get rid of ingrowing hairs and men seem to like how it makes them feel “really clean”.

Scrubbier than our other exfoliating bath bar – Citrus Sunshine – but less scrubby than our Kitchen hand Soap, this new scrub is now available online for you to try.

A new scrub – great for all skin types, even sensitive

Honey & Oatmeal soap enriched with Coconut Milk_All Natural SoapWe had a look at our range recently and realised that we didn’t have any scrub soaps for people with sensitive skin. This clearly wouldn’t do, so we headed to our workshop to set about creating a gentle and soothing soap that also had exfoliating properties.

Milk soaps are great for gently cleansing delicate skin so we thought this would be a good place to start. Our Goat’s Milk and Calendula soap already does a good job of helping those with sensitivities wash without irritation, but for this new soap we wanted to go that little bit further and make it both exfoliating and vegan. Enter coconut milk.

Coconut milk has been used in skin care for centuries because of its ability to soothe and moisturise. When added to soap, it, not surprisingly, creates a creamy, milky lather that is truly a pleasure to wash with. First ingredient down.

Next we wanted to attract even more moisture to the skin so we added honey, a natural humectant. Second ingredient down. For the scrubby element, we wanted to choose something that could be used all over the body, including the face, and the natural choice was of course oats. Very soft, so non scratchy and caring on the skin, oats are also famous for helping to sooth all manner of skin irritations. Our soap was complete. Well almost…

We make a number of unscented soaps (or more specifically soaps with no added scent that have a lovely, clean natural smell – our most popular being our Castile range), but on this occasion we were keen to create and add a scent that appealed to everyone as, after all, we were trying to create a scrub soap for all skin types.

If you’re familiar with our range then you’ll know that we love a good citrus. Strong tangy smells aren’t everyone’s cup of tea though so we decided to make the predominant scent in our essential oil blend, Sweet Orange. Sweet Orange is a fragrance that we have found to be almost universally appealing as it is uplifting, fresh and clean, and neither too floral nor too citrusy. On the skin, it is also generally tolerated by most people, regardless of their skin type. The background notes? Well we thought it would be nice to let the natural properties of the ingredients shine through and so the heart and base notes in this soap actually come from the oats, honey and coconut milk. We think the combination is gentle and heavenly.

Enough talking, we need to get back to creating new, delicious soap varieties.

Our Honey & Oatmeal Scrub soap is available to try now. If our testers are anything to go by, we don’t think this current batch will be around long so you better get yours quickly!
