More about Friendly Soap

For soaps this ethical we use a cold-process method handed down through generations of makers. It creates no by-products and relies on old-fashioned elbow grease, with every bar blended, cut and packed by hand, right here in Yorkshire. The soap is biodegradable too, so it’s better for the planet even once you’ve used it. Our recycled and recyclable packaging is just us being sticklers.

Key information

We don't have a retail outlet at our workshop. Friendly soap is available at independent ethical high street retailers and on our website. www.friendlysoap.co.uk
