More about Organik Orangutan

I make my soaps in small batches using the cold process method, which means each batch can take up to 6 weeks to cure. Every process is done by myself from the purchasing of Fair Trade organic ingredients to the making of the soaps, to the cutting, curing and wrapping. I grow and dry my own herbs to use in Forest Herb and Forest Explorer. I cook a fresh batch of homegrown carrots for Gentle Bonobo. I use the coffee grounds from a freshly brewed pot of Rainforest Alliance coffee for Forest Scrub. I add luxury organic oils of Jojoba and Wheatgerm oil to Forest Queen. Forest Queen is a Green Parent Beauty Award Winner 2019. I also make sure they come to you in recyclable, reusable and sustainable hessian/burlap wrapping. Zero waste, nothing to throw away.

The wonderful scents of organic essential oils are blended with care to enhance the scented range. My new skincare range 'Roisin' is made with the same loving care for your skin and the environment as my soaps.

All of Organik Orangutan products are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
I am a member of the Guild of Craft, Soap and Toiletry Makers
