NATROMAEco - natural goat's milk soaps without any packaging
We're pleased to introduce NATROMAEco. This is in response to a number of customers who wanted to buy our organic goat's milk soaps in the most minimalist way possible. We have talked to customers and the feedback is that they love our stance on responsible packaging and recyclable cardboard soap boxes. We introduced our soap boxes a couple of years ago, and they're mainly for our shop and stockists. This is because the boxes keep the soap clean, prevent the soap being damaged and we think it's nice to know you aren't buying a piece of soap that's been handled by loads of people (everyone does love to pick up soaps and give them a sniff!) So this is why we designed our soap boxes (with their sniff hole in the flap) and chose biodegradable cardboard, but they still have to be manufactured and tend to be thrown away as soon as the soap is used. So, we'd like to suggest that customers save their old soap boxes and re-use them....and we'll reward you for being so eco-friendly with a 25p discount off each unwrapped bar (in addition to the multi-buy saving when you buy 4 bars)!
If you care about the environment, why not try purchasing your Natroma organic goat's milk soaps without their usual packaging. The organic soaps listed on this page are exactly the same as our other soaps (they'll come from the same batch as usual), but they'll arrive without their usual cardboard boxes. Once we receive your order, we'll select your organic soaps and they'll be loosely wrapped in tissue paper inside your parcel. By law we have to supply customers with ingredient listings, batch references and durability advice for everything that we sell - it's printed on the product labels. So, as we process orders of any of our NatromaEco unpackaged products, we'll add this information to your order details on the website. You'll be able to log into your account and click on the unpackaged order, and read the labelling information.
When your goat's milk soaps arrive, please be aware that handmade natural soaps should not be stored in plastic/air-tight boxes since the soap needs to breathe (they may sweat and become soft, which could ruin them). We'd suggest that they're stored at room temperature wrapped in tissue paper until they're needed (they make great natural drawer or wardrobe fragrancers!). But a better option is to keep your old soap boxes from previous orders and re-use them over and over again. Since our aromatherapy goat's milk soaps only contain essential oils, so these will evaporate quite quickly if the soap is left out in the air or in a hot environment. Their natural colours will also fade if they are exposed to lots of sunshine. So if you find your unwrapped soaps seem to be losing their aroma, it will be due to the way they are being stored. Remember that as you use your organic soap and wash off the outer layer, it will reveal fresh soap underneath and the aromatherapy fragrance will still be deeper inside each bar.
Our soaps contain only natural colours (this may include natural clays, spices, herbs and botanicals) which are sometimes swirled into beautiful patterns, but please remember that every bar is unique so patterning, colours and fragrance will vary between batches.
Our Handmade goats milk soap ingredients are: Saponified olive oil (sodium olea europaeate), coconut oil (sodium cocos nuciferate), RSPO sustainable palm (sodium elaeis guineensisate), organic goats milk, organic cocoa butter (theobroma cacao), organic shea butter (butyrospermum parkii), sweet almond oil (prunus amygdalus dulcis), natural colourants and a natural fragrance derived entirely from a blend of aromatherapy grade essential oils.

Our luxurious Natural Soapworks range of handmade goats milk soaps have a rich, creamy lather since each bar of soap is enriched with the addition of real goats milk. They also contain olive oil, coconut oil and palm oils (from a sustainable source so it doesn't damage the environment) and are enriched with cocoa and shea butters. Our natural goats milk soaps are highly moisturising but our formulation doesn't get soft if it's allowed to dry between uses. Our goats milk soaps are handmade using a traditional cold-process production method before being poured into wooden moulds. The natural soap bars are cured for several months, before being hand cut and they weigh at least 95g. Soap bar shape and texture will vary between batches.
All of our natural goats milk soaps are very gentle, so are suitable for use on sensitive or troubled skins.
