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 pure, organic, essential oils and crushed coconut shell are added, where applicable and mixed into the soap noodles.
  3. The soap noodles pass through a machine to form one continuous block, which is then cut into smaller, individual soap bars.
  4. Our logo is stamped into each bar and then checked to make sure each bar is perfect.
  5. 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 glycerine.

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

 4. What is the significance of the essential oils being organic?

All the essential oils used in the fragranced soaps are certified Organic Oils, sourced from all over the world. This means that all of the plant raw materials required for oil production are sustainably cultivated and monitored by certifying bodies from seed all the way through to the oil. 

Being certified also means that no nasty pesticides are being used and therefore there would be minimal impact on insects' and bees' life cycle and habitats.

5. 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.

Amazing soap! I must admit I was sceptical at first but they really do lather up with lovely soft sweet smelling bubbles. I tried the one I thought I would like the least (ylang ylang) first and it’s gorgeous. Can’t wait to try the others

Thank you for your lovely review, Amanda. Our soap bars reflect our core values - palm oil free, organic, Fair Trade and are as effective as they are ethical. We are so pleased you are enjoying them, Rian

Lisa H

4 weeks ago I had a bad flare up of eczema on my hands. After using a cream recommended by the doc for 2 weeks it had improved a bit but not gone, my hands were still really dry cracked and sore. Then bought these soaps- have been soley using the non fragranced one as soap and body wash for 2 weeks and my hands have improved so much. Feel much more moisturised and skin looks and feels calmer. Will definitely be using only this from now on. Would definitely recommend for sensitive skin has done wonders for me.

Thank you for your review, Lisa. It's wonderful to hear how much our soaps have helped with your eczema. Our soaps are made with zero palm oil, and made with 100% coconut oil. Many thanks, Rian

Amazing quality products. This is the second box of soaps I’ve bought. They foam so well, smell amazing and feel so lovely on my skin. Never using shower gel again!

Thank you for your lovely review, it's great to hear how much you are enjoying our soaps. And yes, using our soap bars is a great way to cut down on plastic bottles of shower gel and hand soap! Thank you, Rian

Love love love the soaps. Lather really well and smell delicious.

Hi Sue, thank you for your review. It's great to hear how much you are enjoying your soaps. I agree, they lather up so well and the pure, organic, essential oils smell amazing! Thank you, Rian

Karen G

I first used Lucy Bee soap in my sisters house in Devon and I was most impressed but assumed it was so creamy and lathered up so well because she had very soft water. My skin was so soft afterwards. My sister subsequently gifted me some to try at home ( where we have extremely hard water ) and I was so amazed at how it was just as incredible as it was in Devon ! It’s without doubt the best soap I have ever used and wouldn’t use anything else now.

Hi Karen, it's great to hear how much you are enjoying the Lucy Bee soaps! Thank you for your lovely feedback. Our soaps are made using 100% coconut oil and are as natural as can be, containing zero palm oil! Thank you, Rian

Jessica T

Such beautiful soaps, they lather so well and last forever. Gentle smell and love that they are all natural and nourishing for your skin.

Thank you for your 5* review, it's great to know that you love the Lucy Bee soap bars as much as we do! The soaps are traditionally made with 100% coconut oil and are as natural as can be - containing zero palm oil! Thank you, Rian

Beautiful soaps I wanted to move away from shower gels full of chemicals , and found these they are gorgeous , lather up so lovely and leave you smelling amazing they smell so natural and real , I will not be using anything else on my skin in the future and am just about to order my second box.

Hi Jane, thank you for this lovely review of our soap collection! All of our soaps are made using 100% coconut oil and are as natural as can be, using essential oils - and zero palm oil! It's also great to be able to cut down on plastic by not having bottles of soap and shower gel. Thank you again, Rian

Georgia H

These are my favourite soaps, I love the gift set because it gives you a variety of really different fragrances to choose from but my favourite has to the exfoliating soap. I have quite sensitive skin but these soaps are a dream and the coconut oil in the ingredients really moisturises your skin!

Hi Georgia, thank you for your review, It's great to hear that you are enjoying our collection of soaps. I agree, the exfoliating bar is also my favourite - it smells amazing! And it's so nice knowing they are all palm oil free. Thanks, Rian

Nice soap - kind to sensitive skin - Will recommend it ….

Thank you! There's no greater recommendation than word of mouth. Our soap bars are all free from palm oil (including its derivatives) and are certified Vegan, Cruelty Free, Fair Trade and COSMOS Organic. In the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, our Fragrance Free bar won Gold and the Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won Silver, which we're really proud of. We hope you enjoy using the soaps. Take care, Petrina

Sandra S

Just amazed at the beautiful scent and nourishment it provides my skin. I was sceptical whether it will provide enough foaming and if I will get that clean feeling. How silly of me! Best soaps ever! Not going back to anything else.

Hi Sandra, This is so good to hear and your comment made me laugh! I agree with you, the soaps create an incredible lather and really do leave skin clean and moisturised. Our Fragrance Free won Gold and the Spearmint Exfoliating bar won Silver at the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, with testers recognising the quality and effectiveness of the soaps. Petrina

Absolutely looove the soap bars - great quality and so happy about the ethical standards - cruelty free, vegan, no palm oil etc. Comes in a lovely box and makes a great present. The reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because each bar is wrapped in plastic bag, even though they are also packaged in individual boxes so I don't see why the additional plastic is necessary? Lucy Bee, pleeease get rid off the plastic so it's completely recyclable packaging and get the 5 stars you deserve. Thank you.

Hi, It’s great to hear that you are happy with your soaps. In creating these, it was important that they were not only effective but we also wanted them to be ethical, since these are both at the core of everything that we do. These values also spill over into the packaging that we use for our products and, like you, we’re not fans of plastic and avoid its use wherever at all possible. Our soap bars are unique and are made from coconut oil and this formula means that they can sweat, so to protect the soap, and to prolong the scent of the essential oils where applicable, we have to wrap them in this recyclable PP plastic sachet/flow wrap. We are trialling biodegradable alternatives but as yet have not found a viable alternative. Please be assured that we are doing our very best with this – we also carefully consider the packaging that we use to send products from our online shop, using recyclable card boxes and packing paper (no plastic bubble wrap) and even the tape is recyclable paper. i hope this explains why we have to use the recyclable plastic wrap at this time. Take care, Petrina

Hettie W

Have loved these soaps for ages and bought some for my dad who has psoriasis so really struggling with all the extra hand washing. He noticed a difference in his hands after one day!! He usually has awful sores and splits in his hands and they are so much more hydrated and calm since switching to Lucy Bee!

Thank you for your great review, Hettie. We're so so pleased that the soaps have helped your dads psoriasis! They are so gentle, nourishing and moisturising. Georgia

Janet R

Bought as a "lock down" gift to cheer up the recipients. They were pleased with the soaps and say the quality is very good and the lather feels good. Also, the free sample was a nice touch.

Our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold and our Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won SIlver in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, due to their quality and how the left the skin feeling, they are also palm oil free, and #1 Ethical Best Buy in the UK for soaps.

Lucy Bee soaps are the best. They smell delicious and last for ages. They lather up really fast and leave my skin feeling soft and nourished not like that tight feeling soaps normally leave you with. Would recommend and buy again.

Thanks for your fantastic review, Penny. We're so pleased that you've enjoyed using our soap range. It's lovely when you get all 4 so that you can pick and choose which to use! Georgia

Beautiful soaps! Really lovely scent and they lather up much more than any other soaps I’ve used. Have actually used them in the shower which I wouldn’t normally and left my skin soft and supple - great products!

Hi Katie, Thank you for taking the time to review our Soaps and we're happy to see that you're enjoying these. We use our Coconut Oil in these (rather than palm oil which is often used in products), which not only creates this wonderful lather but also cleans and moisturises skin too.

Love these soaps. Lather beautifully and a quality like no other!

Hi Laura, Thank you! All of our soap bars are free from palm oil and instead we use our organic coconut oil. This creates a wonderful, rich lather to clean and moisturise skin. The fragranced bars include pure, organic essential oils and our Spearmint Exfoliating soap uses crushed coconut shell to naturally exfoliate. In the 2019 Free from Skincare Awards, our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold, and the Spearmint Soap won Silver, which we're really happy about. Petrina

Christine T

I loved the presentation of the box, with details of each bar of soap, very long lasting and lather beautifully with amazing fragrance.

Hi Christine, Thank you! We wanted the box to be informative, including how soap is actually made, in addition to being useful especially if giving the bars as a gift. Made with our coconut oil, each bar lathers really well and all are free from palm oil and its derivatives. They are certified Vegan, Fair Trade, COSMOS Organic and Cruelty Free, making them as ethical as they are effective!

Very impressed with the normal coconut bar as this is the one I’ve opened first. It lathers you really week and leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft

Jo

I was really looking forward to using the soaps having purchased the cream cleanser and dazzling tonic , which did wonders for my face . Unfortunately the soaps have really dried my skin out so I have had to stop using them . I have oily skin so I’m not sure why this is happening, I will just have to keep the soaps for hand washing and not on the body ..left slightly disappointed!

Hi Jo, We're really pleased to hear that you love the skincare products and they've helped your skin. With regard to your feedback on the soaps, we're sorry to hear this and I'm afraid that I'm unsure why this would be the case on your body. The soap bars all contain our coconut oil, which has moisturising qualities (as experienced on your hands) and wish I could explain why you've found them drying on your body. Petrina

Orla C

They smell great and make my hands feel soft despite using it multiple times a day. Really glad I bought them!

Hi Orla, This is so good to hear and thank you for sharing. We use our coconut oil to make the soaps, rather than palm oil, and not only does this create a wonderfully rich lather but it also cleans and moisturises skin. Our Soap bars are the number 1 ethical Best Buy from Ethical Consumer Magazine and are certified Vegan, COSMOS Organic, Cruelty Free and Fair Trade. We were thrilled that our Fragrance Free soap won Gold at the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, and our Spearmint Basil and Clove Exfoliating bar won Silver. Petrina
