Inspired by their baby’s delicate skin they took the brave decision to steer clear of traditional bathing products, despite their promises to ‘aid relaxation’ and ‘encourage sleep’, and instead create a completely pure bar of soap from the most natural oils.
The results were almost immediate. Within days theirs baby’s eczema had disappeared, his skin was plump with moisture and what’s more, bath times became a joy!
This discovery got them thinking about their own skins and how they were affected by the products we use on them. They researched the debate surrounding the use of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) in skin products, familiarised ourselves with the role of parabens and became obsessed with reading labels, much to the annoyance of many a shop-owner!
In short, they became skin-savvy and embarked on a mission to put their soap-making skills to the test and create a range of beautifully scented, yet 100% natural soaps which would replace their existing bathing products. Indeed they were so pleased with the results that they decided to share them with the world, and hence The Dartmoor Soap Company® was born.
The rest, as they say, is history….
