Here at Skyn Bakery we craft handmade luxurious artisan soaps and skincare, that is vegan friendly and in plastic free and eco packaging, using simple, natural ingredients. Welcome to our little world.
We make soap using the cold process technique, one of the oldest methods that dates back 2800 BC when the ancient Babylonians mixed fats and ash together to make the very first soap!
Our founder, Clare fell in love with making soap and wanted to share her passion, she said: “How wonderful the humble bar of soap is and something I have found a great love for. I have taught myself how to make the perfect bar, lots and lots of research and practice until I got my recipes exactly how I wanted them. Gorgeous looking soaps with a beautiful scent that did not leave skin feeling dry. Basically, everything I hated about soap as a child, I turned on its head and made products I really love to use.”
Our skincare products are handmade using high quality natural ingredients, such as cocoa butter, mango butter and shea butter, all are infused with carefully chosen essential oils, never perfumes. We focus on high quality ingredients and have blended to make the perfect products. Clare said: “I love to use my skincare on myself and my children, I use the body butter on them, two of whom have eczema which is why I am so adamant about avoiding perfumes in anything I make, I find it really soothes their skin.”
Also, like many other people we want to reduce our use of plastic, we really do not need to be consuming so much single use plastic. So, we thought why not share our love of soap with others and use plastic free packaging, our body butters and body scrubs come in glass jars with aluminium lids, lip balms are in aluminium pots and our soaps are virtually naked (Ooh matron!) and orders are shipped in cardboard boxes with cardboard fillers. We just want help to reduce plastic in bathrooms.
