More about The Black Cat Soap House

As vegans ourselves our products and processes have always been 100% vegan and we are proud to offer you handmade cruelty free skin and hair care products which will leave you feeling gorgeous.

Everything you will find in our products, except for the clays and pumice stone in some of our soaps, comes directly from plants and everything we use is there because it is beneficial in some way. Most of our products are great for sensitive skins and for those suffering from eczema and other skin conditions.

We sell most of our soaps and shampoo bars as “naked” slices and we have a reduced price for bars which are bought in this way.
