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!

Pop-up Gay Bar for Pride!
Thr 10 Jun 2021

It's Pride month so we've resurrected an old joke from some years ago and made a few batches of our special limited edition Gay Bar. This mixes some of our other soaps in a frankly poor effort to reproduce the rainbow flag but on the good side the label is mildly amusing, the soap is lovely and we're sending every penny of the £5 asking price for each bar sold directly to the Albert Kennedy Trust, the charity which provides invaluable support for LGBTQ+ young people facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment.

This is only available while stocks last and was quite popular when we first did it so order promptly or call into the shop if you'd like some!

The Ostrich in South Creake chooses us!
Fri 16 Apr 2021

I am proud and pleased to say that The Ostrich Inn, South Creake, Norfolk has picked us to supply them with guest amenities in the form of little soaps, hand wash and body lotion.

The building, in the heart of the village, has been empty since 2017, but Teresa and her team have taken it on, plus the cottage next door, and are in the process of re-doing the interior and the exterior to offer letting rooms, a bar and restaurant and a self-catering cottage to book too. The Ostrich will open from 1 July, but they are taking bookings now.

And on top of the fabulous new offering of food, drink and beautiful rooms, I reckon the icing on the cake is the presence of our soaps, custom labelled for The Ostrich, in every room.

Best of luck to all and I'm really looking forward to seeing it when it's finished.            Sara
