Welcome to Eco Soaps - Handmade Natural Soaps
Since 2011 I’ve carefully handmade 40 varieties of natural soap, as well as a range of solid shampoo bars, hair conditioner, body butters, handcreams, balms & massage oils.
I specialise in products for sensitive skin, and many of my customers come back to me because they have issues such as eczema and they have found the products help to soothe these conditions.
My soaps are traditionally made using the cold process method, here in my home workshop in the Scottish Highlands. I use sustainably-sourced, natural ingredients chosen for their excellent skincare properties. For fragrance, I only ever use pure essential plant oils. The products contain no Palm Oil or Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Most are vegan, and all are cruelty-free.
A key ingredient in my soaps is OLA natural cold-pressed rapeseed oil, which I source from Aberdeenshire less than 100 miles away (www.olaoils.co.uk). OLA is rich in Vitamin E and moisturising for the skin. I blend it with natural coconut oil to create a lovely gentle soap with a superb lather.
If you’ve never tried handmade natural soap before, you will be really pleasantly surprised at how good it is for your skin. The process by which it is made ensures that natural glycerin is retained within the soap which leaves skin very soft and smooth.
My soap packaging is plastic-free and biodegradable. I also reuse packaging for shipping whenever I can. All my products are safety-assessed according to UK cosmetics legislation.
Thanks for visiting, and stay safe!

Ecosoaps - your hand made soaps
After many years of using Clinique skincare, I realised that combining the newly discovered fact that they tested on animals with the rising expense of the products, I needed to make a change. I have very sensitive skin and, as I get older, I am finding my skin more and more in need of really good facial soap. Instinctively, I thought that Eco Soaps' Peppermint and Eucalyptus soap might work well. I tried it and haven't looked back. The soap is so cleansing and refreshing and my skin has never looked as radiant and even-toned as it does now. Thank you so much, Eco Soaps, for providing me with natural, ethical and affordable facial soap that does so much more than I could have ever hoped. I am thrilled!

Beer Shampoo Soap
I suffer from an irritable scalp which would often come up in a rash using conventional shampoos. I have been using ECO Beer Shampoo Soap for a while now and as well as making my hair feel nice & soft, it does not irritate my scalp.

Sweet Orange Handcream
A surprisingly buttercream colour and a pleasant 'orange-peel' scent is what you first get when you open the jar. Not at all what you may think. The cream has the texture of a silken mousse and leaves a non-sticky gloss on the skin. It sinks into your hands leaving a softness and delicate fragrance which lasts for hours. A most delightful and effective handcream.
Edie, Inverness, 2013
I'll certainly be ordering some more of these gorgeous creams soon. Each one is beautifully scented and easily absorbed leaving skin feeling very soft. I bought my first body butter as a treat for myself. Later I bought some as gifts for friends. Now though, it's going to be part of my everyday routine. One very happy customer here!
