Natural handmade cosmetics for you, from Ireland with Love.

Hi, I'm Rob (Dr K)!

I'm passionate about producing high quality handmade skin and bodycare products using pure, natural ingredients.

I started my business in 2011 after funding ran out for my position as a researcher in a university in Cork, Ireland. The process of soapmaking had always appealed to the biochemist and scientist in me and so it was almost a natural transition. I also really liked the idea of experimentation in my own lab - it was and still is an exciting and fun journey to come up with the Dr K range of bodycare products. From the beginning, I decided against the “norm” of chemical-laden artificial cosmetics that are available on our supermarket shelves – if I was going to make soap, I would make good soap. The use of only the finest natural ingredients has resulted in the ultimate good-for-you products – ones that I love to use and am proud to put my name on.

Since then, the product range has grown, and Dr K now stocks a variety of men's care and grooming products. Dr K’s Handmade Soap and Cosmetics are produced in my laboratory in County Cork, Ireland according to EU cosmetic regulations. All products are SLS free, paraben free, petroleum free and never tested on animals. I am committed to ethical sourcing of the best natural ingredients for the production of my rustic soaps, beeswax lip balms and men's care products.

As a proud beard owner myself, I go to great lengths to meticulously research and develop Dr K men's grooming products to be the very best for your beard and skin. Dr K products are fairly and competitively priced, as I believe that good quality, all natural skincare products should be accessible to everyone and not break the bank.

Dr K Soap Company has a proven track record established since 2011, with thousands of happy customers all over the world. Dr K products are available in more than 20 countries and over 1000 retail stores worldwide and this number continues to increase daily, bearing testament to the quality and dependability of the Dr K brand.

Thanks for visiting my store!

All the best,

Rob (Dr K) :-)}}}
