Mitcheldean Soap is a home grown business making traditional handmade soaps bursting with fragrance. They are made in The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, by Sara Gates, who started the business from her own kitchen. In her own words; "I started it as I wanted to work from home because of the children, however it soon outgrew my kitchen and I had to take on a unit. This was much better as I didn't have to keep clearing up to make meals etc, and then get everything back out again. I love that the our soap is never tested on animals just on hubby first. I really enjoy making the batches of soap, it's a bit like cake making but you must not get the two mixed up!"
All Mitcheldean soap bars are made from natural ingredients, no artificial ingredients, nasty chemicals, or parabans and are very kind and gentle to the skin. The quality of the soaps is exceptional and the fragrances are a natural delight. Mitcheldean soap bars contain locally sourced ingredients where possible, for example, the addition of honey is from a smallholding in The Forest of Dean. It’s great to see this company fully utilise local resources and support other local natural based businesses.
