who we are

North Devon Soap is on a mission to pamper you and reduce plastic in your bathroom. Our organic soap bars can be used for washing, shampooing and shaving - all medically approved. What better alternative to chemical ridden plastic soap than a 100% natural soap bar!

We offer handmade soap bars as gifts, everyday soap or as wedding favours. You will find us at community events and craft fayres across North Devon. Check out our events on our Facebook page, we would love to see you.

Or if you fancy learning how to make your own soap bars, why not book yourself on a course? Or gift a course place to a friend? We only list confirmed courses on our web site so if you cannot see one in your area, please get in touch. There may be one being planned.

To get you started, here's a message from the soap maker!


A letter from Helen


My name is Helen. I founded North Devon Soap with my husband Andrew in 2019. Like many people, I watched Blue Planet and was horrified by the effect oil-based plastic was having on our natural world. And here my journey started. 

I have always been concerned at the amount of single use plastic in my kitchen and bathroom. But like many busy Mums, I was too, understandably, preoccupied to find alternatives. If I had known then what I know now, my soap making career would have started many years ago!

I want to help you switch from mass produced liquid soap to natural bar soap handmade in smaller batches.  You may be looking for an everyday soap bar, gifts for friends or family, or want to learn how to make soap bars yourself. Whichever it is, I am keen to help.

Whether you want to buy soap bars or want to attend one of my soap making courses so you can make your own; I hope to convince you soap bars are a truly natural alternative to plastic soap.  

Best Wishes
