About the Washpool Farm Soaperie in Ballandean
Just like you, we don't want to use every type of ingredient or recipe just because it's available to us here at Washpool Farm Soaperie. Drawing on our wealth of knowledge, we choose instead to make choices about what we strongly believe will bring better health and pleasure to ourselves and those who use our body products. This means that we make very careful choices about the ingredients included in the formulations of our natural soap.
Wherever possible, we choose to source our ingredients locally, often direct from the growers. When we purchase ingredients from further afield we place great emphasis on using ethical, organic, fair trade and sustainably produced raw ingredients.
What we leave out: Sulphates; Tetrasodium EDTA, Artificial Colours, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Palm Oil** and Palm Oil derivatives.
What we put in: Cold pressed edible oils, butters and milks. Extracts, infusions, activated and whole botanicals along with clays, honey, fruit and vegetables. Basically, ingredients you can recognise, most of which are edible.
The Washpool Farm Soaperie difference
We believe in being small enough to listen and being big enough to deliver. We believe in hand made and we take pleasure in providing meaningful employment to people living in our rural community.
