About

Ode to the Zen Bunny

I moved to Lancashire in 2012, motivated by the hills & gorgeous countryside. Since then I've been carving a tiny wee niche in the soap & toiletry world.

I'm a conscientious sort, always have been, I'm determined to acquire as many happy customers as possible.

All my handmade beauty products have successfully completed safety assessments.
I develop new products carefully (some may say I procrastinate). When our personal favourites have passed the home test, they are filtered through to family & friends who feedback their observations. After more tweaking & testing I'm slowly but surely I'm ready to submit new formulations to my chemist. Trawden Soap Kitchen is a member in good standing of the UK Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers.

I am passionate about the ingredients I use. I personally dislike perfumes, typically made from thousands of chemicals, its no wonder that artificial fragrance is a known skin irritant. For me, nature provides stunning materials that I want to embrace in my work. You will never find these, parabens, petroleum, lanolin in my toiletry products.

I sell through Etsy because it's so more personal. I love making custom orders & the opportunity for dialogue is a breath of fresh air.

A final note to potential overseas customers. Please contact me if you require a multiple item order so I can give you a more realistic shipping cost.

Thank You

Louise

Frequently asked questions

Can you gift wrap and send direct to recipient?

It would be my pleasure. Nobody wants to pay postage twice. Please be sure to update the address and let me know the message you would like attaching to a hand crafted gift tag. If you would like a "please open on x date" on the external packaging be sure to include that in your order notes too. My soap sets have a gift wrap option, please contact me to discuss other requirements prior to purchase.

Custom and personalised orders

I am happy to personalise soap labels with a short personal message of your choice to make your gift extra special. This incurs a small fee. Please contact me to discuss your requirements before ordering.

I frequently get asked to make a recipe to a customers own specification, using for example their favourite essential oils. I am never able to do this as all products (or even minor changes to my existing products) require full safety assessments be conducted by a certified and experienced chemist. This is in compliance with EU legislation.

Customer suggestions for future product lines are always gratefully received.

Are all your products vegan?

The majority are indeed vegan. The exceptions are my beeswax lip balm range and Pooka Boodley Cleansing parfait which are suitable for vegetarians.

Are your products all organic?

All of my products contain some organic ingredients, the amount varies between products so I like to give you percentages. In soap and toiletry making achieving a 100% organic product is not always possible
as so many ingredients (such as water, minerals, colours) do not exist in an organic capacity. The high quality of the ingredients I use is important to me and remains pivotal in my creations.

Do you sell wholesale?

My products are not priced for wholesale so unfortunately I am not able to offer this service.

Are your products safety assessed?

Absolutely ! Cosmetic Safety Product reports (CSPR) are completed on all my toiletry products prior to them going on sale. The assessments are carried out by an experienced chemist who examines data to ensure they are safe for you to use. In further compliance with EU legislation product labels have directions for use, warnings, bbe dates and net weight.

How do I care for my Trawden Soap Kitchen Products

My soaps simply need the opportunity to dry out between uses - a soap dish will do the job nicely.

I recommend using a spoon with my body washes & scrubs. This is to avoid adding water which encourages bacterial growth and keeps everything super fresh. if you would like a disposable wooden spoon added, just ask.

Please look at individual products for further details such as "use within x months of opening.

Can you provide a customised shipping quote?

P+P for all orders within the UK are set at £3:75 (excluding lip balms which are less & hampers which are more).

Overseas customers are encouraged to contact me to request a combined shipping quote that will be more realistic than the estimated figures shown.

Do you do samples?

Whereas I do not offer samples, I do offer most products in two sizes. I find the majority of my customers like to test the water with the smaller size and return for the larger jar, which is invariably much better value
