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?

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!

We are open every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 11am-4pm

Our special Christmas soaps are now in stock

We do know it's not quite Christmas but some people like to be more organised than we ever manage so we've made the first batches of our ever popular Christmas soaps... Three Kings, Pomander and Christmas Spice. These are available as individual bars or as a joyful stack of three tied off with a golden ribbon. All three are palm oil free.

And if you're looking for something a bit bigger, we also have a selection of gift baskets on the website.

Shop opening hours
Mon 5 Jul 2021

Just a reminder that our tiny shop on Wells quay is open from 11am to 4pm on Wednesdays through to Saturdays throughout the summer and into the autumn and winter.

The shop is almost under the gantry on the much-pictured Granary building on Wells quayside (NR23 1JT for SatNav or immediate.occupy.dark for What3Words) so it's easy to find but if you're coming by car you'll need to be parked nearby, either on the quay or in one of the town's other car parks, as there's no parking outside.

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 £70 for 12 bars including post & packing, it's great value and works out less than buying the bars individually.


Neem shampoo bar

Neem Shampoo soap bar, approx 100g

A shampoo soap that may help in the fight against head lice although we know a few people who use it regularly just because they like its distinctive cutting-edge aroma! Made with neem oil, an Indian oil with insecticidal properties, and scented with cinnamon leaf and tea tree essential oils which have been shown to be effective against head lice. It's worth a try!
