My friend Julie brought me back a Hebridean Seaweed soap from outerhebrides soap shack from her holiday in Barra this year.
As you'll know I love trying new brands and love bars of soap. The soaps are handmade by Sam on the Island of Grimsay on North Uist in a workshop attached to the family home. The soaps are made using natural ingredients and are enriched with shea butter and sweet almond oil and are produced in small batches. You can see more details on the website here and on the Facebook page here.
The soaps are cold processed and made in the traditional way. There is no animal testing and sustainable palm oil is used. Packaging is kept to a minimum and is recyclable.
The Hebridean Seaweed Soap is made with seaweed extract and is rich in Vitamins and Minerals. Suitable for all skin types. This soap is a best seller due to it's scent of the sea. I also think it smells a bit minty. It lathers well and leaves the body and hands feeling clean, fresh and moisturised.
You can see the full range in the shop here.
