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

  • # 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

If you’re looking for a calming scent, then this mix of organic, pure essential oils in this bar, are the perfect choice.

All of our Soaps lather really well when rubbed between wet hands and you can use this bar 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.

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 are added 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 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.

5. What is the significance of the essential oils being organic?

All the essential oils used in the Lucy Bee product range are Certified Organic oils sourced from all over the world. Being Organically Certified means, all of the plant raw materials required for oil production are sustainably cultivated and monitored by certifying bodies from seed all the way through to the oil. Being Certified will also mean that no nasty pesticides are being used and therefore there would be minimal impact on insects’ and bees’ life cycle and habitats.

I bought this product as myself and my house mates are all frontline nursing staff suffering from dry, sore skin on our hands. I can’t recommend this product enough as my hands have now never felt so soft and hydrated! It lathers really well and lasted really well. Will definitely be purchasing again.

Anika B

Lathers up really well and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated.

Granddaughter loves the smell and feel of her skin after using this bar

We've used pure organic essential oils to lightly fragrance this bar, which is also certified Vegan, Fair Trade, Cruelty Free and COSMOS Organic. Thanks again for your review, which we really appreciate. Petrina

This was my favourite. Beautiful scent and generous sized bar

Thank you so much for your review, Sandy. The Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Cedarwood soap does smell so lovely and luxurious, all of our soaps are palm oil free and free from derivatives of palm oil, they are also Fair Trade, COSMOS Organic, Vegan and Cruelty Free. Daisy

Alexandra H

Really nice fragrance. Foams up really well and leaves my skin feeling nice and hydrated after use. Also love that it is palm oil free, cruelty free and vegan! Thank you!

Hi Alexandra, When we first set out to create a soap bar, we had various factors that were (and still are) of utmost importance. One point being that we refused to use palm oil and even though we were initially told this wasn't possible, we stuck to our guns! After much effort, the result is our range of palm oil free soaps which use our coconut oil to create this wonderful lather. They are also certified Vegan, COSMOS Organic, Cruelty Free and Fair Trade and are as ethical as they are effective. We so happy that you're a fan and are enjoying how the soap leaves your skin clean and moisturised. Petrina

Fiona W

The soap range is just pure luxury. It lathers so well and leaves your skin really moisturised. Smells amazing. This fits in to the luxury soap market and is excellent value for money.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, Fiona. We're so glad to hear that you are enjoying the Ylang Ylang soap, it really does feel and smell so luxurious. Daisy

Great soap lathers really well left hands so soft

Thanks for your review, Mandi, that's brilliant to hear. Georgia

isobel

lovely creamy soap. I am hoping that I dont need to use body moisturizer now as dont want to generate plastic waste. I suffer from eczema on my body if I dont moisturize really well but this gave such a nice lather and my skin feels so soft after a shower that fingers crossed it's all I will need. and it smells lovely too. I was my treat to myself during isolation

Hi Isobel, What a lovely treat, especially during isolation. It's great to hear that you're loving our palm oil free soap. It's made with our organic coconut oil and leaves skin feeling moisturised and the fragrances in this particular bar have a beautiful florally scent. Petrina

smells divine, spa scent in a soap! Foams up great - my fave soap of the collection.

Thank you so much Kerri! We are so proud of our collection and it's amazing to see such lovely reviews of the soaps. Joel

Lyn

Love this soap, it foams up nicely and has a lovely fresh smell. Skin feels very soft after use. A lot of people have commented on my smooth skin after using this product.

Thank you. When we first looked into making our soaps, we were told that we had to use palm oil for its lathering qualities but we were insistent that this isn't something we use. Fortunately, our persistance paid off and we only use our coconut oil in these bars and, as you've noticed, they have a wonderfully, rich lather.....as well as being effective at cleaning skin. Petrina

Ann

What a lovely item. Totally ethical. Smells and feels amazing and packaged really nicely. Very well priced. Would definately buy more products. Arrived well packaged and promptly. Thankyou, very pleased with this purchase

Hi Ann, thank you so much for your review. It's great to hear that you like our Ylang Ylang soap, and glad that you are happy with your order. Daisy

Lovely smell, lathers up very well, very creamy

Hi Emma, thank you for your review. Our soaps are #1 Ethical Best Buy for soaps in the UK. Our Fragrance Free won Gold and our Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won Silver in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, due to how well they lathered, lasted, and left the skin feeling. Thank you again for your review. Daisy

Jenny H

A good generous size of creamy, beautifully fragrant luxury in the shower, so much so that I’ve ditched the organic shower gel (which contains palm oil yuk!) and used the bar of Lucy Bee soap to easily lather up a glorious smelling set of bubbles and you feel so clean - lovely. Fabulous mystical fragrance

Hi Jenny, thank you so much for your review. It does smell so incredible and lathers so well. All of our soaps are #1 Ethical Best Buy in the UK for soaps. We wanted to make a bar of soap that lasted but was also ethical and worked effectively. Daisy

Lyn V

The soaps are amazing! I am allergic to soap and all of the Lucy Bee soaps are a god send!

Ella F

Having tried other shower soaps (I won't make this mistake again!), I always go back to the Lucy Bee soaps and have tried them all now. They don't dry your skin which all other soaps I've tried do and most importantly they foam so easily that you don't need to use loads of it. Don't let the price put you off, they are ethical and natural and last. I have tried all aromas now and my favourites are the orange soap and peppermint soap.

Hi Ella, Thank you for your great review. It's great to know that you love using our soaps. It's great to know that only natural essential oils are used, and that they are palm oil free. I have not used shower gel since using these soaps! Hannah

Laura A

Love the ethos of Lucy Bee products. Been using this soap for about 2 weeks...smells amazing, lathers beautifully but sadly dries out my hands. Perhaps I will try the fragrance free version, fingers crossed I have better luck with that.

HI Laura, Many thanks for your review, we aim to be as ethical and environmentally-friendly as possible from the products themselves, to the packaging that we use. Sorry to hear that you've found this with this particular soap. The base for each of our soaps, is the ingredients in our Fragrance Free, then added organic essential oils so I wonder if one of those is what your skin isn't liking? Petrina

Sylvia B

Great lather and beautiful perfume. Leaves skin wonderfully soft

Hi Sylvia, Thank you for your review. It's great to hear you like the Lucy Bee soaps as much as we do! It's great to know that only natural essential oils are used, and that they are palm oil free. I have not used shower gel since using these soaps! Hannah :)
