The Soap Kitchen started in 2000 as a small family business making quality cold process soap using pure and natural ingredients. We developed our own unique recipes with feedback from family and friends before selling our products at local markets and craft fairs.
Over the years, the business has grown from the kitchen of the family home, moving into our shop premises in Great Torrington, whilst expanding to include a range of soap making products. The demand being created by requests from customers to try the craft for themselves.
Now we have a large internet business with our warehouse based in Bideford. We have evolved into one of the leading suppliers of soap and toiletry making ingredients to the hobbyist and small business in Europe. We also offer workshops to give customer the opportunity to learn about making cold process soaps as well as melt and pour soaps and bath bombs.
In our recently designed creative suite we develop and manufacture our own soap moulds and bespoke moulds for customers as well as our finished products. We work with customers to help them develop their own soap and toiletry ranges, providing safety assessments that are a legal requirement.
Our dedicated staff ensure that our customers receive the service they expect and deserve. THE SOAP KITCHEN is owned by Richard and Lesley Phillips and is run from it’s main premises at 8 Caddsdown Industrial Park, Bideford, North Devon,UK, EX39 3DX. The shop premises in nearby Great Torrington is still a showcase for our own selection of soaps and toiletries together with a wide selection of other complementary giftware.
