about the english soap company

About The English Soap Company

The English Soap Company story began in 2000, when founders Bob & Juliet discovered a number of vintage soap moulds lying disused in a machinery workshop farm in Kent, England.
Inspired by their discovery, Bob & Juliet spent years perfecting the art of soap making and perfumery to make the perfect soap. A soap bar smooth and silky in texture, that moisturises rather than dries the skin, and above all is effused with a luxurious designer perfume that lasts until the end of the bar.
As the business grew Bob & Juliet moved their soap operation out of their kitchen and on to a local farm in the Sussex countryside. From here the business grew from strength to strength as demand for their soaps increased. The English Soap company still makes all of their products on the farm site in the heart of the English countryside, in beautiful Waldron, East Sussex.
