About

Small steps to a more sustainable life style.

Heritage Soap has been built on the success of the Hertfordshire Soap Company.

My mission?

To bring back the humble bar of Soap. For centuries civilizations across the world have relied on this perfect product to clean, deodorize and sanitize not only our skin, but our clothing and food as well.

But today’s culture, by force of corporatism, has shifted us towards a liquid, or gel-like substance made with things that we believe are less than pure.
Soap is by far the economic, environmental and health conscious choice. While liquids slip down the plug hole unused, Soap keeps on building its rich lather as you use it, distributing its health and cleansing qualities, not to mention its wonderful aromas. Soap, made properly, really is the building block to good skin and a balanced complexion, due mainly to its pure and natural ingredients. The benefits of natural soap are numerous and diverse so join us in the soap revolution!

Pure & natural soap is one of the oldest traded commodities in recent history. It is part of what, and who, we are and its history reaches beyond just being a simple detergent.
My aim is to develop a range of exceptional skin care products using luxury and responsibly-sourced ingredients that will treat and nourish the skin, while caring for it in a natural way. A devotion to good research and development ensures a level of quality that makes these products luxurious, deeply caring and wonderful to use.

When I started making some lifestyle changes some years ago, I started to move away from corporate dominance in retail and tried to find ways of living a cleaner and more sustainable life where I found out how to be more independent and self-sufficient, well, as much as one can in the western world. This is when I discovered soap making and it quickly became clear that it ticked a whole lot of boxes for me.
It is creative and expressive, it makes ecological and financial sense for local communities to make their own soap. It’s quite artistic and requires good organisational skills and an attention to detail.

Like cooking it follows guidelines and within those guidelines are freedoms to experiment and create beautiful looking and wonderfully aromatic soaps that can create sensations that are often really quite sensual. My hobby quickly began to take over and before long it was consuming me, until November 2014 when I jumped in with both feet and made it my goal to make soap full time. So here I am with an Etsy shop and some bars of soap that I like very much, and I hope you do too.

If you buy a soap bar from me I truly thank you for being a part of this new and wonderful chapter in my life because for me, soap is a clean break from my past and an exciting step into the future.

    Left school early to be a TV star! Ended up in a London bus, then a Sainsbury's delivery truck and now a soap maker. My family still think I'm famous and my wife is my biggest fan. Luckiest man alive!
