Emma's Soap - Natural Bath & Body Collection

Through extensive research, Emma has developed a range of products that are truly earth- and skin-kind.

The environmental benefits of using Emma’s Soap are:

  • In the ingredients of the soap.
  • In the packaging, it is recyclable and reusable.
  • In the health of the consumer.
  • In the manufacturing base, process and waste.
  • In transportation and delivery.

In the ingredients:

All oils and butters used in Emma’s Soap are from suppliers who import where possible from within Europe. All oils are from a cold press process avoiding chemical base solvents for extraction purposes. Where possible oils and butters are organic and/or unrefined, Emma uses the beeswax from her own hives and that of a local bee keeper, ensuring only the best grade is used in the manufacturing of the soap, giving the end user a high grade product.

Emma chooses to use virgin olive oil, 95% renewable product. 45/50% of her soap is made with virgin olive oil because it is pure juice, full of anti-oxidants and vitamin E. The cosmetic industry tends to use olive pomace oil; this is not a pure product, as the extraction involves the use of high temperatures and petrochemical solvents such as hexane.

Emma has designed a soap that does not use palm oil (sodium palmate) the crop is used for a myriad of purposes from an ingredient in food products to engine lubricants and a base for 99.9% of all cosmetic products.

In its packaging:

Emma’s Soap considered various methods of packaging from paper to bio-degradable packaging.

To use organic fair trade cotton fabric was an early ethical decision, not only does it present the soap beautifully; it allows the soap to breath as well as protecting the soap and it can also be re-used.  Emma promotes her ‘reduce reuse recycle’ ideas on all her labels. 

Emma’s Soap is wrapped in Organic fair trade cotton.
