I've been making soap for over 20 years as a hobby. At the start of 2019 I decided to leave my nursing career behind me and create Chapel Soap.
I wanted to create soaps that could not only replace liquid hand wash but more importantly I wanted to create soaps that could help people replace their shower gel with a quality plastic free alternative.
When I began, artisan handmade soap wasn't that easy to find and the commercial soaps available in supermarkets were made from dubious ingredients, smelled artificial, had a tendency to be drying to the skin and often left me red and blotchy. Making my own soap gave me total control over the ingredients I used, their quality and the reason they were part of that bar. I wanted ingredients that had beneficial effects and included a high percentage of moisturising oils, skin nourishing additions and organic content.
All my soaps have been fully safety assessed by a competent and qualified industrial chemist as required by UK law and EU Regulation 1223/2009. Never risk buying uncertified products, membership of the Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers is your guarantee of legal compliance.
