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.

Really Wild Soaps are natural, nourishing and gently fragranced.

wtfdivi014-url0

They are mild and long-lasting.

wtfdivi014-url0

They do not contain any animal fats and have not been tested on animals.

They are all palm oil free but still retain the rich natural glycerine that is normally discarded in commercial soaps.

The ingredients contain no detergents, synthetic fragrances or colours.

The soaps contain no artificial preservatives, alcohol, petroleum products or GMOs.

They have all been cosmetically tested (Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009).

As I use honey (local) in my Buzzy Busy Bee Soap I really wanted to share this to illustrate that this is how mass produced honey is collected, so appalling...

MASS HONEY PRODUCTION - would you eat it if you saw this?
This is awfully sad....we are losing many of our bees...
Honey is being raided left right and centre - the bees are dying for our lust for ... See more
