About the soap

The wild ingredients are collected by hand from the hedgerows, coastline and seashore around St Davids. Some of the soaps contain honey and beeswax as they have such amazing properties and part of the proceeds is donated to www.bumblebeeconservation.org to help raise awareness and increase understanding about our much-loved bumblebees. These endangered bees are essential pollinators for our crops and wildflowers.

Really Wild Soaps are made entirely by hand and wrapped by hand, a time-consuming but traditional and environmentally-friendly process. The soap moulds (first made and used over 20 years ago) were recycled from my old bee hives, as is the cutting box.

I reuse old, discarded wet suits and cut long strips from them to wrap around the Surfers Soap to hold the labels. I collect and use seashells and other little beach-finds which have holes in them to tie on to some soaps and I recycle scallop shells as soap dishes.

There is no wastage from this traditional way of soap-making. Any offcuts and trimmings are reused.
