ABOUT SOAPERY 21
Soapery 21 is an eco conscious small business, trying to do our bit in removing harsh chemicals and unnecessary plastics from people’s daily lives. I work hard to continually improve the sustainability of Soapery 21 products by trying to source ingredients and packaging that have minimal environmental impact.
For a long time I have been interested in the health and wellbeing properties of essential oils. For over a decade I have been making natural products with essential oils for my family and for use around the home. During lockdown, like many people, I found I had more time on my hands. I experimented further with my recipes and, after sharing my products with friends and family, I was encouraged to launch this small business!
Growing up and living in the Shetland Isles, my products were inevitably going to be inspired by the elements, nature and culture that surrounds me. That close proximity to nature, and my awareness of global environmental issues, have strongly influenced my desire try to live a sustainable life and try to minimise my environmental footprint.
All the soaps, wax melts and shower steamers are handmade in small batches in my home workshop using nourishing oils and butters from sustainable sources, scented with 100% natural essential oils, coloured with mineral-rich clays and infused or decorated with plant based botanicals. Where possible I use botanicals harvested from my own garden. I use rapeseed wax which, with it's lower carbon footprint, is a more sustainable choice than many other imported plant waxes such as soy, coconut and palm wax.
