Description

Our Fragrance Free Natural Soap bar is traditionally made with 100% coconut oil and is as natural as can be, using our Extra Virgin Fair Trade Organic Raw Coconut Oil.

  • GOLD Award from the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards
  • # 1 Ethical Best Buy, as voted by the Ethical Consumer Magazine - see here for details
  • No palm oil or any derivatives of palm oil
  • Vegan
  • COSMOS organic
  • Cruelty Free
  • Fair Trade
  • Produced in the UK, by a company originally set up to provide employment and opportunity in an otherwise deprived area

Our Fragrance Free Soap bar is suitable for all skin types*, leaving skin hydrated and clean. It lathers really well when rubbed between wet hands and can be used on the body daily. As with all soaps, avoid contact with eyes and if you should get some in your eyes, rinse thoroughly with clean water.

*Before using any of our soaps, we recommend doing a small patch test on your skin since we’re all different and what suits one person, may not suit another.

 


 

No Palm Oil

Many soaps list palm oil in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in ours, even sustainable palm oil, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products.

How Soap is Made

The traditional way of making soap is by saponification – a chemical reaction between two natural ingredients: a fat (coconut oil) and a strong alkali (such as sodium hydroxide).

This ancient and original way of producing soap is exactly how Lucy Bee Soap is made. We use sustainable, natural ingredients rather than petroleum and synthetic and artificial ingredients, which is the way many beauty and cleansing bars are created.

The process involved in making our Soap is as follows:

  1. Coconut oil is mixed with sodium hydroxide, an alkali, during a process known as saponification which creates a stable soap base to form into pellet shapes, called soap noodles.

  2. The soap noodles pass through a machine to form one continuous block, which is then cut into smaller, individual soap bars.

  3. Our logo is stamped into each bar and then checked to make sure each bar is perfect.
  4. The individual bars are now wrapped in recyclable flow wrap, to keep each bar fresh, before being placed into its own recyclable, biodegradable box, ready for you to choose.

Lucy Bee Soap is Free From:

  • Palm oil – has environmental issues and adversely affects local livelihoods
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) – can strip skin of its natural oils
  • Artificial fragrances
  • Preservatives
  • Petroleum

Packaging

To protect the unique formulation of our soaps and to prolong the scent of the essential oils (where applicable), these need to be wrapped in a recyclable PP plastic sachet/flow wrap, which we then pack in an FSC recyclable, compostable and biodegradable card carton.

Soaps are normally made from palm oil and a soap made wholly from coconut oil, as ours is, is uncommon.

With its better foaming and lathering qualities than soaps made with palm oil, this unique formula means the soap can sweat, which presents something of a challenge to us in storing it, hence the use of flow wrap. Please be assured that the packaging weight is minimised,

We always aim to avoid plastic and to be as environmentally-friendly as we can - this is an area that we passionately care about and, as a small business, we are doing our very best. We have recently finished successful trials using a new biodegradable flow wrap, which we will use for future productions.

FAQs

  1. Being made of coconut oil, will this soap clog the drains?

Our Soap manufacturer confirms, “The coconut oil in the soaps will not clog drains as it is carried away by the soap suds in rinsing.”

2. Are Lucy Bee Soaps nut free?

Our range of soaps are nut and peanut free in their ingredients. However, they are produced in an environment which uses nut oils (such as almond oil and argan oil, for example) for other brands’ soaps and whilst the production line is cleaned thoroughly before our Soaps are made, this production line is not cleaned to food grade standard.

We would always advise to err on the side of caution and if in doubt, do a small patch test on skin before using our Soaps.

3. Is the glycerin in your Soaps from palm oil?

No, it isn’t. The glycerin in the Lucy Bee Soap isn’t actually added, it is created by the reaction of the base chemical on coconut oil.

Saponification is the process where a fat is treated with an alkali which is the traditional way to produce soap. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides, such as lauric acid, capric acid, caprylic acid and myristic acid, and these are converted to glycerin.

Rest assured, there is no palm oil in our Soap, and we would never use it in any Lucy Bee product.

4. Can I use this soap on my face?

We don’t recommend using our Soap on your face. The purpose of soap is to remove dirt, grime and oil from the skin. Though our Soaps are natural, if you were to use these on your face, over time it could be harsh on the face. The skin here is thinner than the rest of your body and can become sensitive.

We have a skincare range out which is dermatologically approved, and this is our recommended option for use on your face.

This is some kind of miracle soap! Such an impressive lather and a little goes a long way... I am very impressed and am now keen to try the others from the LucyBee range! Glorious stuff!

Thank you so much Liz for sharing this. Like you, I love the rich lather and also how my skin feels really clean with this. Our Fragrance Free bar won Gold at the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards and our Spearmint Basil and Clove Exfoliating Soap won Silver (this one has the most amazing minty aroma and uses crushed coconut shell to exfoliate skin). All of our soap bars are free from palm oil and certified Vegan, Cruelty Free and COSOMS Organic, so they're as ethical as they are effective!. Petrina

Ordered the soap. This is amazing, so soft on the hands, and it has helped a lot for the dryness I had (due to washing hands more regularly re covid-19) Love this soap and it’s so nice it’s palm free, vegan and no testing. Lathers up really well. I am converted Thank you for making this product

Kripa

I love this soap and it’s great how it foams up even though it doesn’t contain palm oil. My skin doesn’t feel sticky or dry after usage. It’s going to last me forever too

Valerie T

I prefer perfume free soap which is hard to find. This lathers up well and lasts for ages. It is particularly useful at present as we are washing our hands even more than usual. My hands have not become dry or chapped so all in all I am impressed with this soap bar.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Valerie. When we were creating the soaps, we wanted to ensure that we had one which was suitable for those who have sensitive skin to fragrances (so that I could use them as well!). It's great to hear that the soaps are working for you and not making your hands go chapped and sore. We wanted to make soaps that were effective in removing dirt and grime, but not so harsh that they would cause the skin to become sore after using. Thank you again for your review, Daisy

This bar of soap is lovely, perhaps a little overpriced when you have to include deliver but nice as a treat. Lucy bee service is fab.

However, we contribute £2.50 towards the delivery fee for orders between £15 and £25 and we offer Free Mainland UK Delivery for all orders over £25!

Very nice soap - doesn't irritate my skin, which is extremely sensitive and suffers from psoriasis. It's possible it might have helped reduce the last lot of patches on my body, though I'd have to keep using it for a lot longer to check whether that is the case, or whether it's just part of the normal cycle which I go through of inflammation (which is stress-related) and then the drying out and reduction of the patches.

Hello, thank you for your review, and I'm glad to hear that the soap doesn't irritate your skin and might be helping. Our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, and is great for those who are more sensitive to fragrances. Daisy

This soap is great. Would be even better if the inner wrapper was not plastic.

Hi, thank you for your review. Glad to hear that you are enjoying our soaps! Our soaps are #1 Ethical Best Buy for soaps in the UK (as voted by Ethical Consumer Magazine), for being Fair Trade, Organic, Palm Oil Free, Cruelty Free, and Vegan. As well as our Fragrance Free Soap winning Gold, and our Spearmint Exfoliating Soap winning Silver in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, due to the quality, lather, how they left the judges skin feeling, and how long the bar of soaps last. In regard to the plastic, to protect the unique formulation of our soaps and to prolong the scent of the essential oils (where applicable), these need to be wrapped in a recyclable PP plastic sachet/flow wrap, which we then pack in an FSC recyclable, compostable and biodegradable card carton. Soaps are normally made from palm oil and a soap made wholly from coconut oil, as ours is, is uncommon. Our soap also has a better lathering and foaming quality in comparison to those that use palm oil, which means that our soaps can sweat and impacts how we packaging them, which is why we use the flow wrap, however, the plastic used is as little as we can use. We have been working on it for a while, but we have recently finished successful trials using a new biodegradable flow wrap, which we will use for future productions. Daisy

Bought this for my mum as she has sensitive, dry skin (more than me!). She loves it! She can't believe how well it lathers up and leaves her skin feeling great. She will continue to use it and see how it goes, but she said it's the best one she has had (she's old school and prefers soap to shower gel and she's tried them all!!)
