About Our Soaps
Things to know about Tin Shore soaps
HANDMADE: At Tin Shore we make our soaps by hand using natural ingredients. This means each bar of soap is unique and looks slightly different to the mass-produced soap most people are used to.
COLOUR: We do not use any artificial colours in our soaps. Most of the soaps are a cream / white colour, but our Atlantic Botany soap is bright orange from the seabuckthorn oil.
SCENT: We use a blend of natural 'essential oils' to create the rich aromas that come from the soaps.
CURING: We make our soap by mixing oils/butters with sodium hydroxide in a chemical process called saponification. We let our soaps cure for a minimum of 5 weeks before selling to ensure the bars have had time to fully harden.
PACKAGING: Our core soaps are wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a cardboard box (we work with printers who focus on sustainable sources and all packaging is recyclable).
