Inspired by our baby’s delicate skin we took the brave decision to steer clear of traditional bathing products despite their promises to ‘aide relaxation’ and ‘encourage sleep’, and instead create a completely pure bar of soap from the most natural oils. The results were almost immediate. Within days our baby’s eczema had disappeared, his skin was plump with moisture and what’s more, bath times became a joy! This discovery got us thinking about our own skins and how they were affected by the products we use on them. We researched the debate surrounding the use of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) in skin products, familiarised ourselves with the role of parabens and became obsessed with reading labels, much to the annoyance of many a shop-owner!
In short, we became skin-savvy and embarked on a mission to put our soap-making skills to the test and create a range of beautifully scented, yet 100% natural soaps which would replace our existing bathing products. Indeed we were so pleased with the results that we decided to share them with the world, and hence The Dartmoor Soap Company was born. The rest, as they say, is history….
