Back to Scented Soaps

Bumblebee Sylvarum


With conditioning raw shea butter and sesame seed oil, like its fellow Bumbleebee soaps, it is vegan-friendly. Its aroma is very similar to the clean, fresh aroma of our ‘Green Fingers’ and includes lavender, rosemary, tea tree, peppermint, cedarwood and litsea essential oils.
It includes ground nettle, green clay, turmeric, yellow clay and charcoal. Working in fine detail with clays and charcoal is tricky as the batter can thicken very quickly.
The Shrill Carder is one of our rarest bumblebees and is being helped by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust through the ‘Back from the Brink‘ project.  More details, and links to other projects in the BFTB partnership, can be found here.

10% of the sale price of each bar will go directly to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

There are two options for packaging.  Please choose one of the options from the drop down list further down the page.

All mineral pigments we use are laboratory-purified, nature-identical oxides, hydroxides and ultramarines.  Legislation now prohibits (thankfully) the use of mined sources of these minerals as they may contain harmful contaminants such as arsenic and toxic heavy metals.  The mineral pigments we use have exactly the same chemical formula as the mined version, but are 100% pure, non-irritating and thus totally safe for cosmetic use; EU labelling directives requires that each one be listed according to a specific universally acknowledged code number, the ‘ci number’.
We do NOT use any synthetic colours or pigments such as F&DC lab colours.
Our supplier for mica has assured us that it is not mined using child labour.

Price is for one bar, 95g approx / naked bar.

Please note: as this is a handmade product there will be variations between individual bars; the product images displayed are only examples of the design although the overall theme will be the same.  Generally speaking, no two bars are exactly the same and may have slightly different dimensions owing to their hand-cut nature.
