The Soap Dairy Handmade Jersey Milk Soap
Fresh from The Soap Dairy, this beautiful range of handmade soaps are inspired by the changing seasons and landscape farmer Maria Benjamin and her husband John Atkinson work everyday.
Incorporating milk from the Jersey cow in their larger herd of cattle, and capturing the scents and properties of the wild plants local to them, these gentle soaps contain no palm oil and are presented in recyclable paper packaging so there is no leftover waste.
Available in four scents, some containing natural exfoliants - please select from the dropdown menu:
Gathering the Fell: Bog myrtle, heather and charcoal
Hunter’s Moon: Juniper and charcoal
Tea in the Bluebells: Earl Grey tea and bluebell
The Pioneer: Birch, woodland pine and charcoal
Each bar weighs a minimum of 60g.
A closer look at the ingredients, but please see below for individual product details: Norfolk cold pressed rapeseed oil and rice bran oil for skin conditioning and coconut oil for cleansing. Aqua (water) and Lac is Jersey cow’s milk. Sodium lactate (a salt) makes a harder bar of soap so it will last longer for you. Some of the soaps contain organic activated charcoal made from coconut shells - this is a natural exfoliant and great cleanser. Parfum refers to essential oil and fragrance oil and the chemicals listed are all potential allergens contained in these. The CI codes are colours. I use mica colours, which are finely ground coloured minerals. Although most of the soaps only contain one colour, the colours I use are often a mix of a few different pigments, hence the list!
