Welcome to Eco Soaps - Handmade Natural Soaps
Based at Inverness in the Scottish Highlands, Eco Soaps is a family business whose ethos is to use natural ingredients
from local sources where possible. Each Eco Soap product is hand-made, and suitable for sensitive skins.
Eco Soaps DO NOT contain Palm Oil. Palm oil is used in many other soaps and often comes from plantations
developed by destroying natural rainforest.
Our soaps are carefully made by hand using the traditional cold-process method. This time-honoured method produces natural Glycerin,
which remains in the soap and is the magic ingredient which helps to keep skin smooth and soft, unlike many commercially made soaps.
You'll really notice the difference in your skin after using handmade cold-process soap for the first time.
Eco Soaps are the first in Scotland to base their soap formula on Scottish cold-pressed rapeseed oil.
We are a truly local, low-carbon-footprint product.
Each soap bar comprises 50% Ola Oil from Aberdeenshire. Ola is a traditionally-made, cold-pressed rapeseed oil which is high in natural Vitamin E.

What People Are Saying
Here is a selection of recent positive customer testimonials about our products.
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!
