Each cake of English Bluebell Handmade Soap contains vegetable glycerin for its moisturising attributes, a substance largely removed from commercial soaps as it has more value for the big commercial manufacturers as an additive in other products they make.
Blackcurrant Bud Handmade Soap is an ultra rich, SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) and Parabens free, relaxing, luxuriant and skin friendly glycerin soap with English Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non scripta) contributing its intense and familiar floral notes.

Inspiration behind English Bluebell Handmade Soap:-
Bluebell Absolute is seldom available and hasn’t been for many years. The plant is a protected species with a hefty fine for taking it from the wild and the only bluebell that has a fragrance. It is very easily hybridised with the larger and more vulgar Spanish Bluebell which has no fragrance at all and is being slowly eradicated as a result. The UK hosts 70% of the World’s English stock in the wild.
Occasionally the perfume industry produces an extract which captures the essence of the flower’s exquisite fragrance which is lovely but not long lasting. We make our cakes of English Bluebell soap to order so that the fragrance is fresh, floral and vibrant upon receipt.
