Friendly Soap made by Rob & Geoff in Hebden Bridge Yorkshire and is our bestselling product on Wild Earth Beauty.
Friendly Soaps make traditional soap blocks for the hands, body, hair, face and for travel.
They use the traditional Cold Process method of natural handmade soap making, which makes a biodegradable soap which generates zero by-product.
Friendly Soaps is an Ethically Consumer Best Buy.
So what’s in it? Natural ingredients, non-organic. Shea Butter is sourced from a woman’s co-op in Ghana, Coconuts are not picked by slave monkeys and they never use palm oil.
The soaps are all handmade using natural plant-based oils – coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, shea butter and cocoa butter. Each has its own unique qualities and they are all naturally nourishing and moisturising.
Essential oils, flowers, spices and herbs are used for their scent and colour, their healing properties, and some – such as poppy seeds and hemp bran – will gently exfoliate the skin.
All the valuable, naturally-occurring glycerine is left in the soap, so you get a wash that is rich and moisturising.
Ingredients thoughts: The ingredients appear thought out with ethical issues addressed where needed. I would like to see more information about where they source other ingredients.
I would not expect the ingredients to be organic as that is not where the price point of these soaps are at.
Packaging – Soaps are boxed plastic-free recycled (and recyclable) packaging. No plastic wrap.
Awards and accreditations: registered with The Vegan Society, Cruelty-Free International and have a Best rating with Ethical Consumer.
What I like: The soaps are lovely, they lather up well, have lovely scents. They are affordable. Their shampoo/travel bar gets really good reviews.
What I did not like: The soap bars do not tend to last that long, about 2.5 weeks as a hand soap for me, but as they do have so many different scents and are affordable its no hardship to replace.
In conclusion, A great brand. An ethically made biodegradable zero-waste product, with no waste from its manufacture or use. An Ethical Best Buy
