About

Pampering the nation one bar at a time.

My little shop opened in January 2012 but I have been running Oakwood Soaperie for quite a bit longer.

I started out making for friends and family and then finally launched my business in October 2010. I sell elsewhere online via Folksy and my own website too ... www.oakwoodsoaperie.co.uk and from my regular Farmers and Craft market at Gibside Estate - a National Trust property up here in the beautiful North East of England. My workshop is in their converted Grade 1 listed stables block and I absolutely adore it...please check out my photos to see behind the scenes.

Finalist in the 'Handmade Gift' competition on 'Kirstie's Handmade Christmas' 2017.

It is my dream to one day have my own shop with a workshop out back, this would be my idea of soapy heaven.

Check out my You Tube channel to see how they are made.

Thank you for visiting Oakwood Soaperie. I'm Ceri, I live in the North East of England and love to make things, especially soaps.

I'm delighted to have been a finalist in the 'Handmade Gift' competition 'Kirstie's Handmade Christmas' with the Doyenne of all things crafty, Kirstie Allsopp in 2017, it was an amazing experience!

Please get in contact if you'd like a custom gift or are looking for wedding favours, I'd love to help.

All my soaps are handmade in small batches using the 'cold process' method and only use the finest oils, butters, our own lovely Northumbrian honey & beeswax (provided by my Dad, a bee keeper for over 25 years), natural clays, botanicals, essential oils and blended fragrances.
All my products are Vegetarian and most of them are also Vegan, with the exception of those containing goat's milk. This will be clearly stated on the ingredients listing. I use some nut oils and butters in my soaps so if you have a sensitivity, please read the full ingredients listing for each product before buying.
As well as being displayed on each page, the ingredients, weight, batch number, 'made on' and 'use by' dates will be shown in full on the back of every product complying with the latest EU Cosmetics regulations and Trading Standards requirements.
The only guinea pigs my products are tested on are human ones. All my products are EU certified, fully safety assessed and insured,

'Oakwood Soaperie' is a member of the 'European Directory of Soap and Cosmetic Makers' and also a member of the 'Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers'

As I also sell at a number of craft fairs and small retail outlets I may need to make a batch especially to fulfil your order, if this is the case I will advise you by e-mail or convo asap. I aim to despatch within 3 days but occasionally this may not always be possible, again I will always advise you.

If you have a particularly large order or it will weigh more than 5 kg, I can arrange a courier to deliver, I will advise you by e-mail if this is the case as it will require a signature on delivery. I recycle all of my packaging where possible and occasionally use re-cycled paper to make my wrap around soap labels and print invoices.

** If your order is for custom soap favours, please allow 8 weeks for making, curing, wrapping and delivery of your order in time for your big day, 10 weeks minimum for International orders, thank you. **
Additional policies and FAQs
Care Label - To get the very best from your natural soap, store away from bright light, heat and excessive moisture and always allow it to dry out fully between uses. this will prolong the life and appearance of your soap ensuring you get the very best from it every time.
I hope you enjoy using them, I know I do :O)
