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 

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.

  • 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 example) 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.

    • 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 out 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.
