Claire, Appleton Soap

"I live on the Norfolk Coast with the sea on one side and the Norfolk Broads on the other, with my husband, 2 sons and dog. My soaping began just over 3 years ago using melt & pour as a home-schooling project with my sons during the covid lockdown.  I loved it so much that I moved on to cold process soap making and really enjoy taking inspiration from nature and using different coloured micas to create unique patterns and swirls.

I realised after 20 plus years of working in an office as an administrator, that soap making was my happy place, I left my job last year to concentrate on my soap making business. 

I offer my products as vegan friendly to nature and animal lovers who enjoy countryside walking and looking after the environment and use recyclable or compostable packaging so there is no waste. I even put any soap "scraps" I have into sisal bags and sell them for use in the bath or shower.  These are very popular at fayres and markets I attend.

I am looking forward to 2024 and have lots of ideas for new products and soap scents."
