Welcome to the Australian Natural Soap Company: bringing you fresh, natural, ethical soap daily.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO YOU MAKE NATURAL SOAPS?

Our soaps are made entirely of saponified (a combo of lye and water) natural plant oils and fragranced with pure essential oils, all sourced from within Australia and made in Melbourne, they cure for four weeks before hitting showers. A process that has been used for centuries to create beautiful and all natural soap.  

A list of our natural ingredients can be found in the description of each soap.

DO YOUR SOAPS LATHER?

Yes.

ARE ALL YOUR PRODUCTS VEGAN?

Yes. We do not use any beeswax, goat's milk or any other animal products in our soaps. They are also not tested on animals.

DO YOU USE PALM OIL?

Absolutely not! We are very passionate about this issue and believe one of the best ways to bring about change is to offer real alternatives to palm oil products.

DO YOU USE ANY SULFATES?

No, we do not use sulfates.

DO YOU USE ANY PARABENS?

We are proudly paraben free - we in fact use no preservatives.

I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN - CAN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS?

All our soaps use only natural plant oils so they are generally more gentle on skin than commercially produced soaps. We have a few soaps that have been designed specifically for those with sensitive skin. Our sensitive skin soaps have no fragrance and contain no essential oils.

We recommend that when using our soap for the first time that you test the product on a small part of your skin, especially if you’ve had allergic reactions to skin products in the past.

I HAVE ECZEMA - CAN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS?

Our calming and anti inflammatory Calamine (Zinc) soap uses that old time calamine lotion recipe of zinc, castor oil and olive oil, which is great for eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and anyone with itchy skin. We recommend combining it with our Zinc Therapy Oil to provide relief from redness and irritation.

CAN YOUR PRODUCTS BE USED ON CHILDREN AND BABIES?

We'd generally recommend our more gentler soaps for children such as our sensitive skin soap, zinc soap and absolute avocado soap.

HOW LONG DOES YOUR SOAP LAST?

Our soaps will generally last for two to six weeks but this of course depends on how many people are using the soap and how often they are used. The key to natural soaps is to make sure they do not sit in water when they’re not being used - this will extend the life of the soap significantly.

We offer Australian made soap holders that use reclaimed cedarwood and are designed to drain your soap.

HOW DO YOU USE NATURAL SOAPS?

Our soaps are designed to be used to clean your skin and can be used in the shower or as a hand soap. They have not been designed to be used internally and, as with any soaps or detergents, you should avoid getting them in your eyes.

DO YOU HAVE EXFOLIATING SOAPS?

Yes! Our most popular exfoliating soaps are Peppermint & Pumice, which uses natural pumice, and Fair Trade Coffee, which uses freshly ground coffee.  

DO YOU HAVE SOAPS THAT ARE 'SOAP FREE'?

This is always a difficult question to answer. Real soaps by definition use lye so in that respect all our soaps are soaps. But they do not use tallow or any of the other artificial surfacants that have been used widely in commercial soap making in the last few decades that have generally given soaps a bad reputation.

I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN ORDER FOR SOMEONE ELSE  - HOW DO I DO THIS?

Easy - all you have to do is make sure you change the delivery address to the address that you would like it to be delivered to. We ask you always check the delivery address before payment to make sure that your order makes it to the right address.
