What could be a more thoughtful, and useful stocking filler gift this year than soap! But not just any old soap … soap that is as beautiful as it is practical – Kentish Soap Company soaps are lovingly handmade in small batches, made using the traditional cold process method combining oils that are natural and nourishing for your skin, such as avocado oil, olive oil, shea butter and coconut oil, along with exquisite essential oils chosen for their fragrance whether citrus, floral, uplifting, calming, christmassy… and botanicals and clays for colour.
Their soaps smell amazing, are vegan friendly and take care of your skin without any toxic nasties added, no artificial colours or fragrances are used at any stage of the process. All their skin care recipes are safety assessed by a qualified cosmetic chemist and they are a member of the Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers.
Jayne, the founder of The Kentish Soap Co, started making soap back in 2006 for herself, friends and family. She had quite bad eczema on her hands back then and discovered that she had an allergy to a common ingredient in liquid soap; soon after using her own soap, the eczema cleared up. After more and more research Jayne discovered the truth about commercial soap and the environmental impact of producing it and decided she could do better! Kentish Soap Company is a palm oil free, plastic-free, natural and vegan business! It’s also a family run business with Jayne’s husband John, and daughter Emma being part of the business!
They have created a collection of fragrances across most of the products including Rose, Lavender, Gardeners (Tea Tree & Rosemary), Enchantment (Patchouli, Ylang Ylang & Geranium), Ember (Cinnamon, Rosemary, Cedarwood & Orange) and Blissful (Sweet Orange & Geranium), and throughout the year they introduce special, limited edition, seasonal fragrances including their Christmas collection packed full of all your favourite Christmassy scents with lovely gifts such as candles, bath bombs, soaps, gift boxes and gift vouchers, including the ultimate feel-good surprise – Jayne’s Marvelous Multi-Box is your chance to enjoy or gift 4 gorgeous, handmade, handpicked soaps for a lovely little surprise. Simply choose whether you want 4 soaps or 3 soaps and a shampoo bar and they surprise you with other favourite fragrances (how exciting!).
