Box contains 10 bare (unpackaged) soap bars from the PURIST range.

Either 10 of one type or a mixed box. The default numbers of each type can be modified.

BARE OR BOXED?
Bare soap is best if you're buying your tried
and true favourites and are happy no matter
which bar you use if you get them mixed up.
Boxed soap is best if you're buying soap as a gift,
if you're buying soap for a special purpose 
(dog soap, facial bars, shaving soap)
or when you're trying soap for the first time
and want to know which bars to re-order.
Rest assured that our packaging is biodegradable
and can be composted. 

These soaps come bare inside a cardboard box.

THE PURIST range is our traditional tallow based soap, made the way your ancestors probably made soap. It is based on a 100 year old recipe.

These bars are primal, paleo and minimalist, with only a few ingredients: saponified oils (tallow, olive & coconut) along with essential oils.

  • Tallow makes a good soap, creating a hard and long-lasting bar, with a creamy lather. The oils in tallow help moisturise your skin.
  • Coconut & Olive Oils deeply penetrate and moisturise to leave your skin smooth & soft.
  • Essential oils naturally scent these bars
    • Bergamot, Petitgrain & Palmarosa provide a woodsy citrus & floral scent
    • Lavender, Rosemary & Peppermint provides a soothing & stimulating scent
    • Patchouli, Lavender & Clove provide a spicy and earthy scent.
    • Sweet Orange, Cedarwood & Ylang Ylang evoke an outdoorsy floral aroma.

Why Tallow?

A few years ago we were still using palm oil in our soaps, which we ensured was organic and sustainably produced. However as palm oil became increasingly negatively viewed we investigated alternatives. When we made the  decision to phase out the use of palm oil we knew that it would be a challenge to make a bar that was just as hard and long lasting.  We substituted palm with cacao and shea butter, as they both contribute to the hardness. The downside to using cacao and shea butter is that they're around three to four times as expensive as organic, sustainable palm oil.  So, our cost of production went up considerably.  Environmentalism and social conscience has a price.  

We realised that tallow was an excellent substitute for palm oil. Oddly enough, palm oil and lard/tallow are almost identical in their triglyceride structure - both are high in palmitic and stearic acid.  Once shunned in favour of vegetarian palm oil, these animal fats are making a comeback both for the health benefits of a stable saturated fat (over processed hydrogenated vegetable fats) and for their environmental credentials.  

Naturally, animal fat is very similar to our own and the unadulterated oil from grass fed, hormone free, locally sourced animals is making a comeback as a sustainable soap ingredient.

We hand-render tallow from locally sourced animals, which otherwise would be a waste product from the meat industry.

While we know that vegetarians and vegans will not care for this product, we also know that many customers are concerned with minimising waste and sourcing goods from as local as possible. Tallow meets these ideals perfectly.

Bars weigh a minimum of 110 grams.
