No Palm Oil

Many soaps list palm oil in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in ours, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

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.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products.

How Soap is Made

The traditional way of making soap is by saponification – a chemical reaction between two natural ingredients: a fat (coconut oil) 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.

The process involved in making our Soap is as follows:

  1. Coconut oil is mixed with sodium hydroxide, an alkali, during a process known as saponification which creates a stable soap base to form into pellet shapes, called soap noodles.

  2. The pure, organic, essential oils and crushed coconut shell are added, where applicable, and mixed into the soap noodles.
  3. The soap noodles pass through a machine to form one continuous block, which is then cut into smaller, individual soap bars.
  4. Our logo is stamped into each bar and then checked to make sure each bar is perfect.
  5. The individual bars are now wrapped in recyclable flow wrap, to keep each bar fresh, before being placed into its own recyclable, biodegradable box, ready for you to choose.
Lucy Bee Soap is Formulated Without:
  • Palm oil – has environmental issues and adversely affects local livelihoods
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) – can strip skin of its natural oils
  • Artificial fragrances 
  • Preservatives 
  • Petroleum 
Packaging

To protect the unique formulation of our soaps and to prolong the scent of the essential oils (where applicable), these need to be wrapped in a recyclable PP plastic sachet/flow wrap, which we then pack in an FSC recyclable, compostable and biodegradable card carton.

Soaps are normally made from palm oil and a soap made wholly from coconut oil, as ours is, is uncommon.

With its better foaming and lathering qualities than soaps made with palm oil, this unique formula means the soap can sweat, which presents something of a challenge to us in storing it, hence the use of flow wrap. Please be assured that the packaging weight is minimized,

We always aim to avoid plastic and to be as environmentally-friendly as we can - this is an area that we passionately care about and, as a small business, we are doing our very best. We are working on trials using a new biodegradable flow wrap, which we hope to use for future productions.

FAQs
  • Being made of coconut oil, will this soap clog the drains?

    Our Soap manufacturer confirms, “The coconut oil in the soaps will not clog drains as it is carried away by the soap suds in rinsing.”

    • Are Lucy Bee Soaps nut free?

    Our range of soaps are nut and peanut free in their ingredients. However, they are produced in an environment which uses nut oils (such as almond oil and argan oil) for other brands’ soaps and whilst the production line is cleaned thoroughly before our Soaps are made, this production line is not cleaned to food grade standard.

    We would always advise to err on the side of caution and if in doubt, do a small patch test on skin before using our Soaps.

    • Is the glycerin in your Soaps from palm oil?

    No, it isn’t. The glycerin in the Lucy Bee Soap isn’t actually added, it is created by the reaction of the base chemical on coconut oil.

    Saponification is the process where a fat is treated with an alkali which is the traditional way to produce soap. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides, such as lauric acid, capric acid, caprylic acid and myristic acid, and these are converted to glycerin.

    Rest assured, there is no palm oil or any of its derivatives in our Soap.

    • Can I use this soap on my face?

    We don’t recommend using our Soap on your face. The purpose of soap is to remove dirt, grime and oil from the skin. Though our Soaps are natural, if you were to use these on your face, over time it could be harsh on the face. The skin here is thinner than the rest of your body and can become sensitive.

    We have a skincare range which is dermatologically approved, and this is our recommended option for use on your face.

    • What is the significance of the essential oils being organic? 

    All the essential oils used in the Lucy Bee product range are Certified Organic oils sourced from all over the world. Being Organically Certified means, all of the plant raw materials required for oil production are sustainably cultivated and monitored by certifying bodies from seed all the way through to the oil. Being Certified will also mean that no nasty pesticides are being used and therefore there would be minimal impact on insects’ and bees’ life cycle and habitats.

    Highest rated ethical soap

    This is the second time I’ve ordered this item, after seeing that it is rated highest for soaps by Ethical Consumer. This is the most important reason for choosing this product. However, customer care comes a close second, given the excellent communication that reflects a remarkable commitment to providing a first class service. I was particularly impressed by the recent offer of compensation when delivery was delayed through no fault of Lucy Bee. Thanks.

We always aim to be as efficient, ethical and environmentally-friendly as we possibly can.

    Fabulous soap

    I am a massive fan of this soap - I love them all but the mint one is my fave! I recently ran out and had to use something else in the shower - my skin is not happy! They really are the best soaps in have ever used

    Thank you for sharing your fantastic feedback with us! We are so happy that you are enjoying the Lucy Bee soap. I agree, the spearmint exfoliating bar is my favourite too! Using Lucy Bee soap bars is also a great step to using palm oil free beauty products. Thank you for your support, Rian

    Soap

    I just love your soap. In these times the smell and feel of products have become more important. Your soap lathers beautifully in our hard water and has kept dryness and soreness at bay. I feel it is worth paying a little extra for an excellent product. Do you make smaller bars? Glad I discovered you, your ethical standpoint is a bonus too.

    Thank you very much for your feedback! We are so pleased that you enjoy using the Lucy Bee soaps. We currently have just the one size soap bar, but they can be cut into smaller chunks if you prefer. Lucy Bee always aims to produce effective products whilst being as ethical and environmentally friendly as possible. We are happy to hear this is important to you too, and that you choose a palm oil free soap bar. Thank you for your review, Rian

    Ordered the set of soaps. Used 2 of them so far they smell divine and are luxuriously soapy. My 6 year old loves them in the bath and has sensitive skin. These have been great and non drying on his skin.

    The best soaps around!!

    I love everything about these soaps!
    They have fantastic fragrances, lather so well- and last absolutely ages!
    They’re so wonderfully nourishing and I find I don’t always need to moisturise afterwards.
    Thank you for your amazing products and what you guys do!

    Thank you for your feedback, Rebecca. It is fantastic to hear how much you enjoy using our palm oil free soaps. I agree, they lather up so luxuriously and last a long time without any cracking. Thank you very much for your support, Rian

    The best soaps ever

    This is a constant repeat purchase , the whole family use them as everyone has their favourites, really great for eczema sensitive skin , the exfoliating soap is amazing pre tan, and back in the days when we could go away it's great for removing suncream , the fragrances ones are beautifully put together subtle but the fragrance lasts on your skin. If I was on a island I'd want a bar of this soap , they last forever and hold their shape right to the very end.

    Thank you, Eleanor. We are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoy using the Lucy Bee soap collection! As you say, the soap lasts such a long time without cracking or breaking. Thank you for your review, and for your support. Rian

    Happy

    So far I've only used the unscented bar since I wanted to try the baseline soap and I am very happy with it. The bar is thick and suds well with some water and a washcloth. It feels light on the skin and does feel like it leaves residue on my skin after scrubbing and rinsing. I assume the other bars will work the same :)
