Nestling in the North Cotswold hills, the eco-savvy Little Soap Company provides skin with the richest, finest, and most naturally wholesome soap that they believe possible. Their founder Emma rigidly believes the business of a business is to improve the world. Since 2008 she has been on a mission to bring bar soap back and rid bathrooms and wash bags from unnecessary synthetics and plastic bottles. Way ahead of its time, the heritage of Little Soap Company paved the way becoming the first organic soap to hit the supermarket shelf in 2010 with its Organic range, then the first organic pet grooming range with Little Beast, followed by then creating the first naturally derived soap range Naturals to enter the major retailers in 2015. Their latest, the first functional bar soap range, Eco Warrior hit the shelves in 2019. And so, to the present day… a time now when bar soap couldn’t be any more important and understood. They have these four key brands under their belt, all-encompassing the same ethos and claims meaning all need states and budgets can have a clean conscience as they wash.
