Lovely, Natural, Safe Home-Made Soaps by EmmaS Soap

Updated on September 24, 2015

There's something particularly heart-warming about getting a glimpse into the lives and motivations of the people who make ethical products. Take Devon-based Emma, the creator or Emmaâs Soaps. She started her business because she couldn't find a family soap that was as environmentally sustainable, natural and gentle enough for her small daughter.

After trying her best to find the ideal soap and deciding to make her own, Emma experimented for eight months until she produced the perfect solution, safe and soft, fragrant and simple, ethically responsible and sustainable, good for the whole family. Once it was certified by a qualified chemist, she was on a roll! Giving the soaps to friends and family at first, Emma soon discovered such a strong and constant demand that she built a very successful business out of her creations⦠which are absolutely gorgeous!

Emma makes her soaps without any harsh chemicals, fragrances or palm oils and they look beautiful, too, each carefully wrapped in organic cotton with pretty raffia ribbon and a tag explaining the ethics behind the product.

The Ethical Bit

Whenever possible the oils and butters used in Emma's Soap are imported from Europe, to keep product miles to a minimum and are made using a cold press process, free from solvents, organic and/or unrefined

The beeswax in the soaps comes from Emma's own hives and those of a local beekeeper

Virgin olive oil, which is 95% renewable, is the main ingredient at around 50%. It's pure, rich in anti-oxidants and vitamin E and unlike the oil usually used by the cosmetics industry, doesn't involve petrochemical solvents like hexane

Emma's soap is British, made in Devon and properly certified by a qualified Chemist

It doesn't contain any Palm Oil, which is notorious for destroying huge tracts of the Indonesian rainforest, amongst others

Every soap is individually wrapped in lovely organic fair trade cotton, which lets the product breathe properly. You can re-use it to top jars of home-made pickle and jam… Emma really has thought of everything!

Glorious Natural Scents

Emma's Soaps come in a range of delightful fragrances, carefully blended using top quality ingredients including sweet almond oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, palmarosa oil, rose geranium oil and howood oil. A feast for your skin and wonderfully fragrant, they come especially created for relaxing and balancing, calming and cleansing, fresh and uplifting, vanilla and orange, lavender rose and a special soap for hard-working, careworn hands. What an excellent gift - and a great treat for yourself, too!
