Nestling in the foothills of the North Cotswolds The Little Soap Company aims to provide your skin with the richest natural and most wholesome soap possible. We do this through our workshops in The Little Soap School as well as selling a range of our own soaps.
We know skincare starts with soap. It’s simple and we shout from the rooftops how important it is to get back to basics and thus share our bug of soap making by letting Little fans run loose in our workshop for the day teaching them how to make their own concoctions and have a lot of fun to boot!
Founder of The Little Soap Company is Emma Heathcote-James. Starting life as an insatiable one-woman band, Little Soap Company has been passionate about reducing the amount of chemicals and synthetics people unwittingly rub into their skin since day one. Baffled as to why you couldn’t pick up a bar or bottle of pure organic soap amid the weekly supermarket shop, Emma wants to get the world back to basics, creating the purest organic soap she believes possible and making it accessible to everyone.
Our base is an old Cotswold stone building on the Upper Hight Street in Broadway. Emma, Anna, Elaine, Michelle and the workshop team as well as George the Sprocker and Henry the black lab, the newest recruit who loves leaves and sleeping!
The workshop is converted outhouses at the back of our rural 14th century cottage where our holistically handcrafted soap is made from the purest finest ingredients carefully sourced from sustainable vegetable oil plantations across the world. We only choose suppliers who have the same business ethics as us and who are able to trace the origin of each ingredient to its source. So in turn we are able to help marginalised communities to help themselves by providing a living wage and thereby help to fund projects such as clean water wells malaria research and AIDS research.
We are deeply passionate about our imprint on the environment and ensure all of our packaging is recycled, recyclable and biodegradable. We are equally passionate about rural enterprise and source all our staff, packaging and stationery locally. Our bid to help other small rural businesses and cut down on transport miles.
The Little Soap School
We spent a hugely enjoyable day with Emma at The Little Soap School learning how to make soap. We show you step by step how to make 3 different varieties. Lavender, Grapefruit, Calendula, and Poppy soap was fresh and exfoliating. Pink Clay, Rose Geranium and Rose Petals soap was unashamedly pretty and fragrant. Once you’ve mastered the basics, the possibilities are endless. You need never be without beautifully fragrant, skin-kind and totally natural soap again! Read our blog post>>
