Great soap! was unsure at first as I'd never used a charcoal soap before but it's lovely and cleansing with a gentle exfoliant action, thank you!

About

A desire for the simple

I'd had an urge to create my own soap for a while so I gave it a go and loved the results. I wanted something that was as natural as could be, with no nasties in it. I sourced fantastic ingredients...organic if possible...and I was off.


Handmade Haven soaps are made in the traditional cold-processed method, in small batches, using the finest ingredients. Once the batch is made it is cut by hand then left for four weeks to cure. They are then packaged as simply as possible using materials that can be recycled.

Ingredients - Raw organic coconut oil and the finest grade organic cocoa butter are used as the base for the soap. Both are wonderful emollients, and the cocoa butter is also soothing to the skin. Combining these two ingredients produces a hard bar that is wonderfully moisturising, with a great lather.

There are no artificial colourings, scents or preservatives in any of the bars. Essential oils and natural plant additives are the only other ingredients you will find, creating a luxurious bar of soap. Many brands of essential oils were tested in my bars, finally settling on those from Baldwins. They are wonderful, giving a much better scent alongside their aromatherapy benefits. There are no animal based ingredients, meaning the bars are suitable for vegetarians and vegans too.

Payment

Shipping
I state 3-5 days for dispatch. I do try and ship much faster but those few days allows me extra time when I'm super busy :)

I use Royal Mail for deliveries. If any combined order weighs more than 2kg, I would use a courier service.

I always get proof of posting.

UK - All linens are sent out first class. Soaps, scrubs, salts, fizzes, melts, etc are sent out second class (due to the weight and package size). The initial postage cost for the soaps seems high...the good news though, if you purchase more than one bar (up to 8 in fact) the postage cost is still the same. Postage upgrades are available - first class for the soaps, etc or there's the extra reassurance of a Signed For service. Lost mail claims cannot begin until 10 working days have passed.

CANADA - All parcels here are sent using Royal Mail International Tracked and Signed for service as they seem to take an absolute age to get to you.

ALL OTHER OVERSEAS - Items are sent out using Airmail and I obtain proof of posting. I attach a customs label to your parcel where necessary, but I cannot guarantee that you will not be liable for any further charges that may be applied once it arrives in your country. For extra reassurance or if you would like a tracking number, you may add the International Tracked and Signed option to your order. Royal Mail states that parcels to Europe will take 3-5 working days, and for everywhere else it should be 5-7 working days. I have found that those times actually vary from 5 days right up to 18 days. Lost mail claims cannot begin until 20 working days (Europe) or 25 working days (Rest of the World) have passed.

If you are not in the UK but would like to purchase any of the soaps/fizzes/melts/etc please contact me. As the weight of these are heavy (in terms of postage) I haven't added the option for them to be sent overseas, but I am more than willing to send them if you do want them (and your country allows them) 😊
Additional policies and FAQs
My parcels may not seem as pretty as some, nor do they contain anything that I consider to be unnecessary (freebies are never really free ;) ) as I like to keep my costs, therefore my prices, as low as I can. This also means less waste. Parcels will be sent out in paper envelopes to reduce my plastic usage. If you would prefer that your order is sent out in a plastic mail bag just let me know when you check-out. Re-purposed cardboard boxes are used for larger items.
