Launched in September 2015, The Soap Co. is an ethical luxury soap brand creating products that are good and do good. The Soap Co. is part of CLARITY, the oldest surviving social enterprise in the UK. Founded in 1854, it has been supported by Queen Victoria, Charles Dickens and Winston Churchill, and was set up to employ, train and support people with disabilities in order to build skills, confidence and independence. We currently employ more than 100 people across the country. By reinvesting 100% of profits, we aim to generate 60 new job opportunities every year.

The Soap Co. is proud to be a Made in Britain brand. All products and packaging are created in the UK at its semi-automated production line at its East London-based factory where the hand wash and hand lotions are made, and at its tradition cold press process workshop in Keswick, Cumbria, where bar soaps are cut, stamped and wrapped with care. At both sites, which house large kennels for guide dogs, people with great skills and motivation work to create the wonderful products. Every purchase creates employment for its staff whom are blind, disabled or otherwise disadvantaged.

Alongside its social mission, The Soap Co. strives to reduce its impact on the environment, sourcing packaging that is made from recycled materials and can be recycled and composted itself. The Soap Co. brand was created with the support of many award winning designers and suppliers that share its values - there doesn’t need to be a trade off between beautiful design, quality products and a social mission. The bottles are made from 25% recycled milk bottles, with almost 50% less impact on the environment than regular PET bottles; they are also refillable. The bar soap packaging is plastic-free using instead recycled and recyclable paper. The soap stickers are fully compostable; and the biofilms, which wrap the soaps, are also fully compostable. Finally, the glue used in the packaging is non-toxic and biodegradable.
