Tuatara Soap Co


Latest batch of Charcoal and Ginger soap on the drying rack.

We have been experimenting with surface decoration so this batch is not for sale as the cosmetic grade Mica used for the gold swirl hasn't been certified. So we can't sell this to the public.
But, if our customers like this effect we will be changing our formulation and having this certified with our chemist to comply with EU regulations.

[11/01/18]   Good morning everyone.

We have had a few questions about our packaging.

Our soaps are wrapped in a wax free baking paper to keep the soap dust free and also to stop the sweet smelling essential oils from evaporating too quickly.
This paper is FSC approved and can be recycled.

The band of paper that covers the soap with all our details on is paper, and the glue we use is non toxic and vegan.

We didn't want to use sticky tape as we found out that some sticky tapes are not vegan. And, it can't be recycled.

We know that this is just as important as the product itself for some, so we take it very seriously and do our research beforehand.

Hello to our new likers too, great that you have found us!

Restoring the Temperate House at Kew Gardens

Good morning Facebook friends. We thought you might like to know the Temperate house at Kew Gardens is now open after a long restoration project.
We will be visiting Kew soon and can't wait :)

Website is coming, we promise.

Slowly building the business equipment. :)


Cutting 7kg of Spearmint and Calendula soap.


This week we have been making our Spearmint and Calendula soap.
Carefully we sort out the hard seeds and stalks and fine chop the petals, we do this to avoid our soap becoming too scratchy.


Can anyone tell us what soap we are making and what we are doing in these photos?

There is a bar of soap to be won for the correct answer, all of your names will go in a hat and the winner will be picked in a weeks time.

We love our job :)

[02/28/16]   Good news ahoy!
It has been very peaceful here at Tuatara Soap Co, although we have been working with a new company that promotes eco living and all things nature.
Such lovely people! And they stock our soap. :)

[01/01/16]   Happy New Year!

May 2016 bring much joy and happiness.


Good Morning!

Last week we developed and made a test batch of soap that includes British R**eseed oil. Still using a high percentage of Shea Butter in this one but we wanted to add something different.

If in a months time it passes our tests, we will be buying the R**e Seed oil from a local producer.

Looks so buttery and smells very nutty.


Happy Friday! We have been busy for the past 2 weeks cutting and wrapping soap.
This photo is of the off cuts, which we do not waste, not one bit.
We are going to make these available in little packs.
Ideal for testing a new scent or for popping in travel or hand bags.


Such inspiring colours from nature right on our doorstep.

Portchester shore has so much beauty.

[09/22/15]   Did you know that all of our products, and the products planned for the future from Tuatara Soap Co do NOT contain any Palm oil.

We do not trust claims that it can be sourced sustainably without causing habitat loss and suffering of wildlife, so we don't use it at all.


This week we have made a soap with pure grapefruit essential oil, Calendula, Cornflower and Jasmine petals.
The curing room smells amazing!

Our Grapefruit soap has the same wonderful oils that make up our Fragrance free soap, but with added Bentonite clay.
Ready in 4 weeks in our etsy shop :)


Pure unrefined, certified organic coconut oil.
At room temperature this oil is a solid, melt a little on the back of your hand and see why we use it in our soaps as one of our base oils.
It is also great for cooking with. We love it!

[09/01/15]   ** Update**

Samples are all gone now, now to the task of packaging and delivery.
Expect your little package in the next 10 days.
For information on the ingredients of your samples please visit our etsy shop, your samples include
Fragrance free - cream coloured.
Lavender & Jojoba - Light purple colour
Spearmint & Calendula - light yellow with petal flecks.

Please keep your little soaps on a free draining soap dish to ensure they stay as a bar of soap, not a pool of soggy oils

Enjoy :)
