Saltaire Soap

 

It’s a while since we’ve had a soap making at Design@HEART and so we’re really pleased to be welcoming Fiona Smith of Saltaire Soap and her environmentally friendly, skin friendly products.

I began making soap more than ten years ago, because skin problems since childhood made it hard for me to use commercially-produced scented soap and I wanted to design products that would be suitable for me. After experimenting on myself, friends and family for eight years, Saltaire Soap was born.

My soap is skin-friendly, made of high-quality natural ingredients, and scented with my own lovely blends of essential oils. It is made completely from scratch, the traditional cold-process way, without a pre-made base. All the recipes are my own. The ingredients I use are picked for their skincare and soap-making properties and include goats’ milk, orange juice, ground oatmeal, coffee, kelp, cinnamon and sea salt, raw tussah silk, powdered clay. I also use locally-brewed beer, which would otherwise go to waste, and local honey.

My processes are as low-waste as I can manage, and my packaging is eco-friendly.
