Hi, I'm Helen and I started The Soap People because I was horrified with how many plastic bottles of liquid hand wash and shower gel we got through in our house.
We have three boys who love bugs, puddles, den building, hammering, sawing, climbing trees, digging etc. They are above average in terms of grubbiness, but I wouldn’t change them, it’s just I have to make sure they’re clean every now and again, for a few minutes or so.
First we tried supermarket soap.
The classic brands with old fashioned smells. I have extremely sensitive skin and I found these soaps really drying and aggravating to my eczema. I've suffered for decades with sore, red hands from using hand wash.
So I did lots of research and started experimenting and making our own soap.
