Plant-Based Skincare That Gives Back

Welcome to Baba's Soapery! I'm delighted that you stopped by. Let me tell you a little more about our story.

My name is Lina Andreas - I am a third-generation soapmaker and certified cosmetic formulator who is passionate about keeping the soaping traditions alive. All our products are simple to use, natural and ethical, with just a touch of luxury.

The brand story began in 2015 when my husband and I moved from busy London to my hometown Plovdiv in Bulgaria to slow down and start a family. Making handcrafted skincare began as a passion project through my love for nature, DIY and the idea to surprise our wedding guests with a unique gift. The presents were a total hit and over the next few months, Baba's Soapery came to life.

I was inspired by the simple, yet effective soaps that our babas (Bulgarian word for 'granny') concocted in their kitchens. Our mission is to create all-natural luxurious alternatives to the traditional Bulgarian soap and to formulate innovative products that will help you declutter your bathroom shelf. No palm oil, plastic or toxic ingredients, and never any animal-derived materials - just gorgeous natural goodness!

It is important to us to create products that are ethical, wholesome and with a minimal environmental footprint. All our products are vegan and cruelty-free and we use recycled paper and non-toxic ink to print our packaging. We also offer a zero waste delivery option for most items - check individual listings for details. Our range complies with all EU cosmetic regulations and our recipes have undergone rigorous checks by an external certified safety assessor.

Our brand gives back to our Bulgarian community. When you purchase any of our products, you are donating a portion of the sale to support elderly people living in poverty in remote village areas. The charity that we work with provides social and medical care, communal kitchens, administrative support and other initiatives that help people live more connected and dignified lives. We are proud to support their vital work.

With love,
Lina & team Baba's

We are happy to create a custom product for your specific requirements or a custom made gift box. Please send us a message with as much detail as you can think of and we'll be in touch to discuss your idea.

Gift wrapping and packaging

We pack all gifts in a cardboard box, stuffed with crinkle-cut paper shreds. Additionally, we can place a hand-written message from the buyer inside. The gift is decorated with twine, a gift card and gorgeous dried flowers to complete the look.

We only use cardboard and paper to package our parcels. We use paper tape to seal all parcels and only use paper shreds to secure loose items in the box.
