Our Story

The English soap Company was founded in 2000 by Bob & Juliet after discovering a large number of vintage soap moulds lying disused in a machinery workshop farm in Kent.

Inspired by the wonderful designs from a bygone age they set out to recreate the luxurious soaps they remembered from childhood.

Years were spent in perfecting the art of soap making and perfumery to make the perfect soap. A soap that is smooth and silky in texture moisturises rather than dries the skin and above all is effused with a luxurious designer perfume that lasts until the end of the bar.

Our Soaps are made from pure vegetable oils to which we add generous amounts of vegetable derived glycerine and shea butter from the African Karite tree to ensure that the bar both moisturises and nourishes the skin.

To ensure that the texture of the bar is smooth and silky we use a triple blending and refining process to ensure the mix is perfectly smooth before it goes to be pressed.

All our perfumes are made in England by expert perfumers and have been designed specifically for the English Soap Company. All our soaps & toiletries are generously perfumed with long lasting quality perfumes.

In the Autumn of 2017 the English Soap Company completed construction of its liquids and cream toiletries production line. The same care and commitment that has gone into our soap making has been made with these products

Our Mission

We make every product ourselves at our site in the heart of the English Sussex Countryside. All products are hand finished before going out, ensuring quality and care from inception to finish.

All of our soaps and candles are pure vegetable based, vegan, and are not tested on animals whilst our liquids & cream toiletries are SLS & Paraben free.

The English Soap Company’s mission is to ensure that everything we do upholds the values of what is expected in an English product. That means a dedication to quality whilst offering honest and fair value with excellent customer service.
