Good Honest Soap

When we cut our beef into tender steaks and joints, fat is trimmed off and usually thrown away. We hate waste here, so we’ve rendered that down, stirred in some lye solution and poured the mixture into moulds.

The result? Good honest soap, just like your great grandmother would have known, and possibly even made. It feels gentle on the skin, and we haven’t had to import olive oil from the Med to make it, let alone cut down a rainforest and transport palm oil halfway round the world.

Some people react to the chemicals in shop-bought soap.  Well, there are no additives or chemical perfumes in our Good Honest Soap soap at all, just the two basic ingredients, beef fat and lye solution, plus natural colours and essential oils (Lavender & Bergamot each on a Cedarwood Base) in our fragrance soaps and fine coffee grounds in our coffee soap to give a pleasant light scrub. (Do expect coffee soap to break up a bit as it wears down.)

Choose from 50g square, 100g oblong or 100g flowers.  For flower shapes, specify Chrysanthemum, Dahlia or Rose if you wish and we shall do our best to oblige – but no guarantees.

NB: NOT Vegan. Definitely not vegan.  Just totally sustainable and eco-friendly.

Ingredients: Tallow, Water, Lye, plus:
In the fragrance soaps: Addition of Essential Oils (Lavender or Bergamot, Cedarwood), Colour (Indigo or Annatto).
In the coffee soap: Addition of fine coffee grounds.

This is frankly the most sustainable, waste-free, natural, affordable soap you can possibly buy.

Nefertem Naturals list ‘5 Reasons to Use Tallow on Your Skin’.  Among them:

‘Tallow contains the same fats or lipids found in healthy, supple human skin. … Beef tallow, rendered from grass-fed cattle, is loaded with vitamins A, D & K and antioxidants. One of which is vitamin E, known to promote rejuvenation of the skin by fighting free radicals that can cause wrinkles.’

Miriam’s Inspired Skin Care use beef tallow in their high-end products.  (Just click on ‘Our shop’ to see what Miriam charges for her moisturiser.)  She says: ‘Importantly, tallow must be derived from grass-fed animals for it to have beneficial properties for skin’s health.’

And that’s what our ex-suckler cows have been fed on throughout their lives, grass and grass-derived silage.  Furthermore, our gentle process ensures the tallow properties are retained. So try our soap, and if the natural soap has a slight beefy smell, think of the good it is doing to your skin and the planet. Or try our essential oil fragrances: Lavender and Bergamot (Orange).
