Our Fragrance Free Natural Soap bar is traditionally made with 100% coconut oil and is as natural as can be, using our Extra Virgin Fair Trade Organic Raw Coconut Oil.

  • GOLD Award from the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards
  • # 1 Ethical Best Buy, as voted by the Ethical Consumer Magazine - see here for details
  • No palm oil or any derivatives of palm oil
  • Vegan
  • COSMOS organic
  • Cruelty Free
  • Fair Trade
  • Produced in the UK, by a company originally set up to provide employment and opportunity in an otherwise deprived area

Our Fragrance Free Soap bar is suitable for all skin types*, leaving skin hydrated and clean. It lathers really well when rubbed between wet hands and can be used on the body daily. As with all soaps, avoid contact with eyes and if you should get some in your eyes, rinse thoroughly with clean water.

*Before using any of our soaps, we recommend doing a small patch test on your skin since we’re all different and what suits one person, may not suit another.

 


 

No Palm Oil

Many soaps list palm oil in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in ours, even sustainable palm oil, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products.

How Soap is Made

The traditional way of making soap is by saponification – a chemical reaction between two natural ingredients: a fat (coconut oil) and a strong alkali (such as sodium hydroxide).

This ancient and original way of producing soap is exactly how Lucy Bee Soap is made. We use sustainable, natural ingredients rather than petroleum and synthetic and artificial ingredients, which is the way many beauty and cleansing bars are created.

The process involved in making our Soap is as follows:

  1. Coconut oil is mixed with sodium hydroxide, an alkali, during a process known as saponification which creates a stable soap base to form into pellet shapes, called soap noodles.

  2. The soap noodles pass through a machine to form one continuous block, which is then cut into smaller, individual soap bars.

  3. Our logo is stamped into each bar and then checked to make sure each bar is perfect.
  4. The individual bars are now wrapped in recyclable flow wrap, to keep each bar fresh, before being placed into its own recyclable, biodegradable box, ready for you to choose.

Lucy Bee Soap is Free From:

  • Palm oil – has environmental issues and adversely affects local livelihoods
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) – can strip skin of its natural oils
  • Artificial fragrances
  • Preservatives
  • Petroleum

Packaging

To protect the unique formulation of our soaps and to prolong the scent of the essential oils (where applicable), these need to be wrapped in a recyclable PP plastic sachet/flow wrap, which we then pack in an FSC recyclable, compostable and biodegradable card carton.

Soaps are normally made from palm oil and a soap made wholly from coconut oil, as ours is, is uncommon.

With its better foaming and lathering qualities than soaps made with palm oil, this unique formula means the soap can sweat, which presents something of a challenge to us in storing it, hence the use of flow wrap. Please be assured that the packaging weight is minimised,

We always aim to avoid plastic and to be as environmentally-friendly as we can - this is an area that we passionately care about and, as a small business, we are doing our very best. We are working on trials using a new biodegradable flow wrap, which we hope to use for future productions.

FAQs

  1. Being made of coconut oil, will this soap clog the drains?

Our Soap manufacturer confirms, “The coconut oil in the soaps will not clog drains as it is carried away by the soap suds in rinsing.”

2. Are Lucy Bee Soaps nut free?

Our range of soaps are nut and peanut free in their ingredients. However, they are produced in an environment which uses nut oils (such as almond oil and argan oil, for example) for other brands’ soaps and whilst the production line is cleaned thoroughly before our Soaps are made, this production line is not cleaned to food grade standard.

We would always advise to err on the side of caution and if in doubt, do a small patch test on skin before using our Soaps.

3. Is the glycerin in your Soaps from palm oil?

No, it isn’t. The glycerin in the Lucy Bee Soap isn’t actually added, it is created by the reaction of the base chemical on coconut oil.

Saponification is the process where a fat is treated with an alkali which is the traditional way to produce soap. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides, such as lauric acid, capric acid, caprylic acid and myristic acid, and these are converted to glycerin.

Rest assured, there is no palm oil in our Soap, and we would never use it in any Lucy Bee product.

4. Can I use this soap on my face?

We don’t recommend using our Soap on your face. The purpose of soap is to remove dirt, grime and oil from the skin. Though our Soaps are natural, if you were to use these on your face, over time it could be harsh on the face. The skin here is thinner than the rest of your body and can become sensitive.

We have a skincare range out which is dermatologically approved, and this is our recommended option for use on your face.

Bought for my daughter who has eczema to use instead of shower gel. Thing is she has been away for 3 weeks and i am using it myself now ! Lathers up so well and really prefer it now to a shower gel. Great product . Definitely buying again.

Ive always had dry skin, the kind where I would have to apply body lotion the second I was out the shower, even after using a moisturising shower gel. Now I can shower dry and go and my skin feels so soft and hydrated. It lasts a long time as well so its excellent value

Charlotte

I bought this soap as i do have sensitive skin. It lathers up well. But unfortunelty it didnt agree with my skin and had to stop using it has i has a skin reaction to it.

HI Charlotte, We really sorry to hear this didn't suit your skin. We've kept this free from any fragrance as we know that some people are sensitive to fragrances. It might be worth chatting to a dermatologist to see if you can identify which ingredient it is that doesn't suit you. The ingredients are: sodium cocoate, water, glycerin (from coconut oil), coconut acid, coconut oil, sodium citrate and sodium chloride. I hope this helps, Petrina

Steph H

This is so foamy and doesn’t dry the skin at all Love It

Very pleased with this product as I like that it is fragrance free. Attractively packaged. I think if this product was also available in a smaller bar it would be good for children to more easily use and for smaller soap dishes.

Thank you for your review. Our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards due to how well they lathered and left the skin feeling, and our Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won Silver. Our soaps are also #1 Ethical Best Buy in the UK for soaps, and are free from palm oil and any derivatives of palm oil. Thank you for your feedback as well in regard to size, I'll pass this back onto the team. Daisy

Deborah S

I have been having problems with eczema on my hands and thought I would try the fragrance free soap, the difference within a few days was amazing! Lovely creamy soap which I will definitely be purchasing again

Thanks for your great review, Deborah! We're so pleased to hear that you are happy with the fragrance free soap - we've had a few people say that it's been kind to their eczema which is great! Georgia

Christina R

Really lovely soap, lathers up quickly and great for shaving instead of shave gel etc. felt moisturising

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Christina. We wanted to create a soap which is free from palm oil and its derivatives (which usually helps a soap to lather), but still retains that lathering quality, even without palm oil. We are so happy that we managed to create a soap that still manages to do this, and our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards due to this, as well as how it leaves the skin feeling and how long the bar of soap lasted. The soaps are also Vegan, Cruelty Free, COSMOS Organic and Fair Trade. Daisy
