14 January 2021
We're still open for business during the coronavirus lockdown although orders may take a little longer than usual to reach you and some products may go out of stock. Our shop on Wells quay is closed and, for the moment, we can't do 'click-and-collect' orders.
Please stay safe and keep well...
Sara Phillips, Director
The Natural Soap Company makes some of the most
luxurious and beautiful soaps available anywhere in the world. Tucked away in Wells-next-the-Sea on the
North Norfolk coast, we are one of the oldest commercial handmade soap manufacturers in England. While we long ago
outgrew our kitchen table, we still insist on the finest-quality natural ingredients and only ever use aromatherapy-grade
essential oils for our scents and still hand-make, hand-cut and hand-wrap in small batches
to our own unique, and by some standards decadent, recipes.
Please enjoy your visit to our website it includes
a safe, secure on-line shop
linked to our first-class mail order service as well as details of our products for both the public and for wholesale and trade customers,
including hotels, B&Bs and shops. And if you're ever in our corner of Norfolk, why not drop in and see
us in our wonderful little shop right on Wells quayside?
Sara Phillips, founder
Visit our quayside shop
We offer an efficient mail order service so you can buy our soaps any time you choose from this website. But if
you're out and about in North Norfolk, why not drop into our small but perfectly formed shop right on the quayside in Wells? The Soap Shop offers our
range of luxury soaps and toiletries hand-made just up the road as well as gift baskets, accessories and a sometimes eclectic selection of items from
other producers such as scented candles and holders. The shop is easy to find... it's almost right
under the gantry on the landmark Granary building overlooking the harbour and marshes. It's not all bracing walks, muddy children, crab-lines and buckets you
know... pop in and pamper yourself!
News and other bits and pieces...
The Soap Shop is closing for November
Sun 1 Nov 2020
Due to the government's reimposition of lockdown, we must close the Soap Shop on Wells quay for the month of November. I am really sorry about this, but we aren't essential so we have no choice. If you want to buy soap, please order online by post or consider using our Click and Collect service as explained below. You can collect your orders from the soap factory at 2d Maryland Wells NR23 1LY but please take note of the timings of when your order will be ready.
Changes to our Click and Collect service
Sun 1 Nov 2020
Our Click and Collect service has been working well over the summer. Now that we are back in lockdown, you are more than welcome to use the service and collect your order from the soap factory at 2d Maryland, Wells NR23 1LY instead of from the Soap Shop, which will be closed throughout November.
Place your order on our website as usual, then make sure you click the 'Click and Collect' box on the payment screens. Your order will be ready to collect from the soap factory three working days from the day you ordered, Monday to Friday between 10am and 12 midday. No weekend collections - sorry.
Soap Sudscription - 1 full-size bar sent every month for a year
Try our new subscription service... we'll send you, or the person of your choice, one full-size 100g luxurious handmade soap bar, each and every month for a year. We'll send only fresh stock and work our way through our range to give you a different experience every time. A soapy subscription makes an idea gift for Christmas, a birthday or anniversary or a special thank you as it's something that goes on providing a little treat and a lift for a whole year. Priced at £60 for 12 bars including post & packing, it's great value and works out less than buying the bars individually.
Nettle & Rosemary
Made with an infusion of nettle and rosemary leaves and scented with juniper, lavender and rosemary essential oils, this shampoo soap is packed full of nourishing oils to give your hair and scalp a treat.
Spice Gift Basket
A tempting selection of our products in a presentation box, including 3 full-size soaps (Beez Kneez, Milk Spice and Cardamom & Orange), Grapefruit & Frankincense Foam Bath, Cardamom & Orange Body Lotion, our soothing and popular Calendula balm and a scrunchy... a delightful and long-lasting gift.
