Our Social Responsibility
Policies


This is reflected in our support of Fair Trade, donations to charities, products which are certified Organic, Vegan and Cruelty Free, our choice of environmentally friendly packaging, as well as reducing our carbon footprint.

Palm Oil Free


We strive to show the negative effects that using palm oil is having on the world by blurring the boundaries between products people want and making sure they are created to not only be effective and affordable, but by also putting the environment first. It's not always easy but it IS possible to create effective products which are palm oil free.

Fair Trade


The beauty of working with the FairTSA is that those farmers and workers involved in producing the products directly benefit from the contributions, which help to improve lives through such things as school meals and scholarships, clean and safe drinking water, and lending programmes.

Supporting Charities


Each year we work closely with a chosen charity and our donations are made in various ways. We make a payment for every box of our Bath Salts that we sell, and we offset our carbon footprint by donating the equivalent amount to the charity. We also donate food products and soap bars to charities including in the UK, Malawi and the Philippines.
None of this would be possible without the amazing support of our customers.

Supporting the Vulnerable During COVID-19


With the support of our customers, we were able to donate 30,000 palm oil free soap bars to the vulnerable including NHS staff, the emergency services, the homeless, the elderly, care homes and food banks. We provided the soap base and our manufacturer, Soapworks, created the bars for free.

Carbon Offset

In the world of online shopping and demand for products from around the globe, it’s unfortunately impossible to avoid carbon emissions. We want our offsets to be used productively, efficiently and effectively and so we donate the equivalent carbon offset to our chosen charity.
