Handmade in small batches
Each and every one of our products is meticulously handcrafted from scratch, a testament to our unyielding commitment to exceptional quality.
With each batch, we produce just four loaves, translating to 68 individual soap bars. This small-batch approach enables us to concentrate on crafting premium-quality products, and we couldn't be more content with this artisanal scale of operation.
Embracing the traditional cold-process method, enhanced by cutting-edge techniques, we exercise unparalleled control over each ingredient that goes into our products.
Our advanced procedure allows for a slower, more intentional saponification and curing process, which not only optimises the beneficial properties of our carefully selected oils and butters, but also ensures an elevated quality that stands head and shoulders above commercial soaps.
With this meticulous approach, we're able to create soaps that are as good for your skin as they are for the planet.

Cruelty-free & Plant-based
None of our products are tested on animals!
With one exception of the Honey Meadow soap, all our products are 100% Vegan-friendly.
At Chalke Valley Soaps, we operate on the principle that the term "sustainable palm oil" is somewhat misleading. The rationale is simple: if the demand for palm oil were to decrease, so would the levels of deforestation commonly associated with its production. As a result, you'll find that none of our products contain this ingredient.
Instead, we've opted for more eco-friendly alternatives like coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter. These ingredients not only offer excellent skincare benefits, but they can also be sourced in a genuinely sustainable manner.
We take great care in partnering with suppliers who share our commitment to environmental responsibility, ensuring that every ingredient we use aligns with our ethos.
Eco-conscious inside and out
Our eco-conscious ethos isn't just skin-deep — it permeates every facet of our operation.
Inspired by the urgent need to protect our planet (because let's face it, there's no Planet B), we go the extra mile to craft exquisite natural products.
But we don't stop there: we also ensure that each product reaches you in zero-waste, plastic-free packaging. Crafted from recycled materials, our packaging isn't just recyclable — it's also reusable and home-compostable.
Our commitment to sustainability extends to our choice of partners as well; we proudly collaborate with suppliers who share our dedication to environmental responsibility. This is our way of ensuring that every purchase you make is a step towards a more sustainable future.
Small but mighty
High five indeed, because your support is the lifeblood of our family-operated business!
Navigating the waters of running a small, handmade venture in this expansive world is no small feat, and we relish the close-knit relationship we share with our cherished customers.
Each product that departs from our workshop undergoes a rigorous quality check, ensuring that it meets the highest standards of craftsmanship.
So, when you unbox a Chalke Valley Soaps package, rest assured that a 'luxuriously handmade feel' is not just an expectation — it's a guarantee!
