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 pure, organic, essential oils and crushed coconut shell are added, where applicable and mixed into the soap noodles.
  3. The soap noodles pass through a machine to form one continuous block, which is then cut into smaller, individual soap bars.
  4. Our logo is stamped into each bar and then checked to make sure each bar is perfect.
  5. 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 are working on trials using a new biodegradable flow wrap, which we hope to 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 glycerine.

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.

These are my favourite soaps, I love the gift set because it gives you a variety of really different fragrances to choose from but my favourite has to the exfoliating soap. I have quite sensitive skin but these soaps are a dream and the coconut oil in the ingredients really moisturises your skin!

Anonymous

Nice soap - kind to sensitive skin - Will recommend it ….

Thank you! There's no greater recommendation than word of mouth. Our soap bars are all free from palm oil (including its derivatives) and are certified Vegan, Cruelty Free, Fair Trade and COSMOS Organic. In the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, our Fragrance Free bar won Gold and the Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won Silver, which we're really proud of. We hope you enjoy using the soaps. Take care, Petrina

Sandra S

Just amazed at the beautiful scent and nourishment it provides my skin. I was sceptical whether it will provide enough foaming and if I will get that clean feeling. How silly of me! Best soaps ever! Not going back to anything else.

T

Absolutely looove the soap bars - great quality and so happy about the ethical standards - cruelty free, vegan, no palm oil etc. Comes in a lovely box and makes a great present. The reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because each bar is wrapped in plastic bag, even though they are also packaged in individual boxes so I don't see why the additional plastic is necessary? Lucy Bee, pleeease get rid off the plastic so it's completely recyclable packaging and get the 5 stars you deserve. Thank you.

Hi, It’s great to hear that you are happy with your soaps. In creating these, it was important that they were not only effective but we also wanted them to be ethical, since these are both at the core of everything that we do. These values also spill over into the packaging that we use for our products and, like you, we’re not fans of plastic and avoid its use wherever at all possible. Our soap bars are unique and are made from coconut oil and this formula means that they can sweat, so to protect the soap, and to prolong the scent of the essential oils where applicable, we have to wrap them in this recyclable PP plastic sachet/flow wrap. We are trialling biodegradable alternatives but as yet have not found a viable alternative. Please be assured that we are doing our very best with this – we also carefully consider the packaging that we use to send products from our online shop, using recyclable card boxes and packing paper (no plastic bubble wrap) and even the tape is recyclable paper. i hope this explains why we have to use the recyclable plastic wrap at this time. Take care, Petrina

Hettie W

Have loved these soaps for ages and bought some for my dad who has psoriasis so really struggling with all the extra hand washing. He noticed a difference in his hands after one day!! He usually has awful sores and splits in his hands and they are so much more hydrated and calm since switching to Lucy Bee!

Thank you for your great review, Hettie. We're so so pleased that the soaps have helped your dads psoriasis! They are so gentle, nourishing and moisturising. Georgia

Janet R

Bought as a "lock down" gift to cheer up the recipients. They were pleased with the soaps and say the quality is very good and the lather feels good. Also, the free sample was a nice touch.

Hi Janet, thank you so much for your review. What a lovely gift to send, I'm glad they are pleased with the soaps. Our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold and our Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won SIlver in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, due to their quality and how the left the skin feeling, they are also palm oil free, and #1 Ethical Best Buy in the UK for soaps. Daisy

Penny M

Lucy Bee soaps are the best. They smell delicious and last for ages. They lather up really fast and leave my skin feeling soft and nourished not like that tight feeling soaps normally leave you with. Would recommend and buy again.

Thanks for your fantastic review, Penny. We're so pleased that you've enjoyed using our soap range. It's lovely when you get all 4 so that you can pick and choose which to use! Georgia

Alison J

Beautiful long lasting soaps that lather up really well and smell amazing. Another winner Lucy - thank you so much ❤️ Xx

Katie C

Beautiful soaps! Really lovely scent and they lather up much more than any other soaps I’ve used. Have actually used them in the shower which I wouldn’t normally and left my skin soft and supple - great products!

Hi Katie, Thank you for taking the time to review our Soaps and we're happy to see that you're enjoying these. We use our Coconut Oil in these (rather than palm oil which is often used in products), which not only creates this wonderful lather but also cleans and moisturises skin too. Our Soaps are ideal for the hands and body and are all certified Vegan, COSMOS Organic, Fair Trade and Cruelty Free. Petrina

Laura A

Love these soaps. Lather beautifully and a quality like no other!

Hi Laura, Thank you! All of our soap bars are free from palm oil and instead we use our organic coconut oil. This creates a wonderful, rich lather to clean and moisturise skin. The fragranced bars include pure, organic essential oils and our Spearmint Exfoliating soap uses crushed coconut shell to naturally exfoliate. In the 2019 Free from Skincare Awards, our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold, and the Spearmint Soap won Silver, which we're really happy about. Petrina

Christine T

I loved the presentation of the box, with details of each bar of soap, very long lasting and lather beautifully with amazing fragrance.

Hi Christine, Thank you! We wanted the box to be informative, including how soap is actually made, in addition to being useful especially if giving the bars as a gift. Made with our coconut oil, each bar lathers really well and all are free from palm oil and its derivatives. They are certified Vegan, Fair Trade, COSMOS Organic and Cruelty Free, making them as ethical as they are effective! In the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, our Fragrance Free won Gold, and Spearmint Basil and Clove Exfoliating Soap won Silver, which we're very pleased with. The soaps are traditionally made in the UK. Petrina

Very impressed with the normal coconut bar as this is the one I’ve opened first. It lathers you really week and leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft

Thank you so much for your review, Tracey. It's great to hear that you like the soap and it is leaving your skin feeling soft. Our Fragrance Free Soap won Gold in the 2019 Free From Skincare Award, and our Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won Silver, due to how well they lather, lasted and how they left the judges skin feeling.

Very good product

Thank you for your review, Penelope. It's great to hear that you are enjoying the soaps. Daisy

Gail D

Absolutely love this soap! All of them are equally as good as each other. They all smell divine and the exfoliating one is so nice!

Jo

I was really looking forward to using the soaps having purchased the cream cleanser and dazzling tonic , which did wonders for my face . Unfortunately the soaps have really dried my skin out so I have had to stop using them . I have oily skin so I’m not sure why this is happening, I will just have to keep the soaps for hand washing and not on the body ..left slightly disappointed!

Hi Jo, We're really pleased to hear that you love the skincare products and they've helped your skin. With regard to your feedback on the soaps, we're sorry to hear this and I'm afraid that I'm unsure why this would be the case on your body. The soap bars all contain our coconut oil, which has moisturising qualities (as experienced on your hands) and wish I could explain why you've found them drying on your body. Petrina

Orla C

They smell great and make my hands feel soft despite using it multiple times a day. Really glad I bought them!

Hi Orla, This is so good to hear and thank you for sharing. We use our coconut oil to make the soaps, rather than palm oil, and not only does this create a wonderfully rich lather but it also cleans and moisturises skin. Our Soap bars are the number 1 ethical Best Buy from Ethical Consumer Magazine and are certified Vegan, COSMOS Organic, Cruelty Free and Fair Trade. We were thrilled that our Fragrance Free soap won Gold at the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, and our Spearmint Basil and Clove Exfoliating bar won Silver. Petrina

Gareth G

OMG.. these are just beautiful, the smell is gorgeous. And can recommend enough. And perfect for very dry skin. 5 Stars

Wonderful! So pleased to hear this and thank you for taking the time to share this with us.

Kerry C

4 soaps, all wrapped and presented beautifully. Had them all before and will 100% buy again anc again. Hands stay soft and we all love them

Thank you so much for your review, Kerry. It's brilliant to hear that you like the soaps, we wanted to create palm oil free soaps, that still lathered well, and didn't leave the skin feeling dry. Thank you again, Daisy

Debbie R

Lovely soap set, ideal in current climate & ideal for the environment too. I am currently using the ylang ylang soap & it’s lovely, highly recommend.

Thank you for your review, Debbie. I love the smell of the ylang ylang soap and how relaxing it is. All of our soaps are also Palm Oil Free, Organic, Fair Trade, Vegan and Cruelty Free. Daisy

Christine J

Absolutely delighted with these special soaps Bought more as gifts All very happy Especially at times like these. Super gentle and healing to hands

Hi Christine, thank you so much for your review, and glad to hear that you are enjoying the soaps. What a great gift as well!

Kerry M

Love everyone of the soap bars advise everyone to try them all too

Thank you! All of our soaps are palm oil free and create a wonderful lather, leaving your skin clean and moisturised too, so not only ethical but effective! Petrina

Kylie G

The soaps are the BEST I’ve ever used. Lather up perfectly with a small amount of water and make your skin soft.

Thank you for your review. The soaps really do lather up so much and they last such a long time, so we're glad you think so too! Thank you for your comment. Georgia

Lauren

I love that these products are natural, organic and free from palm oil, sulphates & parabens etc. The only soap I have tried so far is the exfoliating one. It lathers well and is a great size, however it dries my skin out more than I would like and the smell reminds me of toothpaste unfortunately! Looking forward to trying the other soaps.

Thank you for your review, Lauren. It took us a long time to create a bar that would obtain all of the certifications and specifications you mentioned. Hopefully you like the fragrance of the other bars a bit more! Georgia

Lesley T

Wonderful product will never use shower gel again

Thank you so much for your review, Lesley, and it's great to hear that you are enjoying the soaps. We love how much they lather up when using them. Daisy

Sarah

I am a convert!! Previously I never liked using bars of soap as I felt like it dried out my skin and didn't lather enough so I was a shower gel kind of girl through and through. I have been following Lucy Bee for a while and was intrigued by these soaps and thought I would given them a try and well.....these soaps are an absolute game changer. My skin feels so soft and they lather up amazingly even with just a small amount meaning they last for a decent amount of time. The service was also amazing and super quick - Lucy Bee thank you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a brilliant review, Sarah. We really love hearing such amazing feedback. We wanted to create soaps that actually lathered up and still left your skin feeling soft and clean! Originally we were told that we would not be able to create a soap that would lather and work well without using palm oil, however, we now have a soap that does that, and doesn't use palm oil! Thank you again for your review, Daisy

Donna D

Sarah P

I have followed Lucy bee for a while and hadn't bought any products. When I saw the video and the amazing reviews of the soaps I had to try. I have been using the orange one for a week now instead of my usual shower gel and it's amazing it's foamy, fragrant and makes your skin feel squeaky clean and cleansed afterwards cannot wait to use the others.

Thank you so much for your review, Sarah. It's brilliant to hear that you are enjoying the Lemon Tangerine and Cinnamon soap. Usually, soaps use palm oil (or derivatives) to help the lather, however we wanted to make something that was palm oil free, but also lathered up well! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Daisy

Beverley C

I love this soap lathers very well and lovely smells.

Hi Beverley, thank you so much for this amazing review! We are so happy that you like the soap collection!

I love these soaps! They arrived in beautiful eco-friendly packaging and they are really weighty. Each bar lasts around 2-3 weeks. Smell gorgeous and lather up really well. I will definitely purchase again!
