Find out what the Free From Skincare Testers said about our GOLD winning Fragrance Free Soap:
"Gentle coconut fragrance is lovely … lathered superbly and efficiently … hand-friendly shape … cleansed wonderfully, felt as if it was moisturizing my skin … a good, generous, strongly performing soap … Imagine safe for virtually anyone to use (unless you have coconut allergy) … I cannot think of any way which this perfect product can be improved.”
"Lovely soap which lathered up very well and was very effective at cleansing hands and body … Surprisingly moisturizing, skin didn’t feel tight … no cracking, no discoloration … great value for money and seems to last longer than many of the soaps I’ve tried”
“It lathered up so well, the best of any soap I’ve ever tried. It was more like a rich cream than a soap lather … Cleansed the body so well without feeling as if it was stripping skin’s oils … held its shape, did not crack … skin felt hydrated, nourished and clean – a nice bathing experience”
About our Soap
Lucy Bee Soap is made using 100% Lucy Bee Fair Trade Extra Virgin Organic Raw Coconut Oil.
Our Coconut Oil is fully traceable, from one source only, where we know the suppliers and they know the farmers and workers who produce it.
Our Soap is produced in the UK, by a company originally set up to provide employment and opportunity in an otherwise deprived area.
How our Soap is Made
Soap is used to clean the skin and is traditionally made by saponification, a chemical reaction between two natural ingredients: a fat and a strong alkali (such as sodium hydroxide).
This ancient and original way of producing soap is exactly how Lucy Bee Soap is made. We use sustainable, natural ingredients rather than petroleum and synthetic and artificial ingredients, which is the way many beauty and cleansing bars are created. Nor do we use palm oil, which is found in so many soaps.
Why Lucy Bee Soap?
We’ve kept our Soap as natural as it can be.
There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.
We choose not to use palm oil in our Soap, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and ecosystems. Instead, we use our own Coconut Oil.
Lucy Bee Coconut Oil is organic and the coconuts grow in agroforestry, a natural environment working in harmony with and supporting nature. Our Coconut Oil is also Fair Trade, with a guarantee that monkeys are not used to pick the coconuts.
Our Soap is not tested on animals and is certified Cruelty Free.
They are also free from: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Artificial Fragrances, Preservatives and Petroleum.
