Real Ale Handmade Soap in aid of Prostate Cancer UK

We'd like to thank everyone who purchased this soap.  We realise it wasn't the most popular variety, and it took us a few years to sell these charity bars.  So we added to the amount that was raised by the sale of this soap, and have made a donation of £500 to Prostate Cancer UK.  Our thanks for your support!

Luxury beer soap, specially formulated as our charity soap to support Prostate Cancer UK.  This soap has special meaning for us, since it has been created in memory of Sarah's Dad who lost his fight with this awful disease some years ago.  We will be donating £1 to Prostate Cancer UK for every 100g bar that's sold.
Contains the award winning Enville Ale, a traditional real ale that contains honey.  We're grateful to the Enville Brewery near to Stourbridge, who have very kindly donated their ale in support of our fund raising efforts.  Our Real Ale soap has a rich, bubbly lather that's a little different to our usual goats milk soaps.  Each bar contains lots of real ale, so it may be a good choice for anyone who'd like to use our soap as a natural shampoo.  (Although we'd always suggest that shampoo is best, if lots of silicone containing products are used to style the hair).  The recipe also contains rhassoul clay, so this would make this soap suitable for use as a shaving soap too.  The main ingredients are organic olive oil, coconut oil and palm oils (from a sustainable source so it doesn't damage the environment), enriched with organic cocoa and shea butters and other organic oils. Inspired by the real ale aroma, we have blended cedarwood, patchouli and sweet orange essential oils, to give the soap a lovely malty, woody aroma.  As with our goats milk soaps, Enville is suitable for use on sensitive or troubled skin types and has a rich moisturising lather.

Like our goats milk soaps, these real ale bars have the same hard formulation which doesn't get soft if it's allowed to dry between uses. They are handmade using a traditional cold-process production method before being poured into wooden moulds. Like a fine cheese, natural soap needs to be cured before it is ready for use and we allow at least 6-8 weeks before each bar is prepared for sale.  The soap continues to become milder as it ages and has a shelf life of over 3 years.  You'll find that our soaps are labelled as 100g, but most bars are usually heavier than this since we make them larger to allow for the curing and natural shrinkage. Each bar is packaged with a film wrapper, covered with a parchment paper wrapper. 
Organic base ingredients:  saponified olea europaea (olive), cocus nucifera (coconut), elaeis guieensis (sustainable RSPO palm), theobroma cocao (cocoa butter), butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond), with Enville Ale, honey, rhassoul clay, cedarwood, patchouli and sweet orange essential oils.

Enville has been developed to support Prostate Cancer UK.

1 in 8 men in the UK will get prostate cancer during their life.  This is a disease that's often overlooked, and many men are too embarrassed to go to their doctor.  After going through the pain of losing a loved one ourselves, we'd recommend that everyone learns more about the symptoms of prostate cancer.  Older men are more at risk, so it's a good idea to obtain more information and get checked by your GP if there are any concerns.  With early diagnosis and treatment the prognosis for prostate cancer can be good.  This is why the work of Prostate Cancer UK is so valuable in conducting research and offering information and support via their Specialist Nurses.

Bliss in a bar of soap
Tuesday, 7 November 2017  | 

This makes my whole bathroom smell lovely! It's such a relaxing scent; I bought it for the novelty value of the real ale but am back as the scent is even more intoxicating than a pint of the real stuff! Mmmmmm.......

European Deliveries

For 2018, Royal Mail have increased their European postage costs on the smallest airmail parcels, but they have reduced the costs for heavier parcels up to 2kg.  We have reduced our postage costs on parcels weighing 1-2kg, so European customers may find it is more cost effective to order less frequently with more items in a larger order.  (e.g. if we post out 2 soaps it typically costs £4.50, but 8 bars could be now be ordered for £8.75).
