Back to Scented Soaps



We are delighted to announce that ‘Sumatra’ has been awarded a ‘Best Buy’ in the Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards 2017.

This  soap has been made specifically to raise money for the wonderful Sumatran Orangutan Society; 20% of the sale price of each soap will go directly to them.  As well as lashings of olive oil this vegan soap includes lots of raw shea butter, nourishing sesame oil and cocoa butter for fabulous skin conditioning and is, as are all our soaps, entirely palm oil free. Coconut milk increases its creaminess and its fresh citrus aroma includes orange, patchouli and lime essential oils.  The rounded, drop swirl design was chosen to reflect the distinctive cheek pads of adult male orangutans and the orange and green colours are those of the SOS itself.

There are two options for packaging.  Please choose from:

Basic packaging:
The soap bar has a cigar band label with full ingredient details and is packed in a compostable glassine bag

Gift box packaging:
The soap bar is wrapped in a translucent vellum sleeve with a handmade paper band and tied with a fine satin ribbon.  It nestles in fine ivory shredded paper in our bespoke ivory ribbon-pull matchbox-style gift box.  Except for the ribbon, all packaging is recyclable.

All mineral colours 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.
