Natural, Cold Pressed Soap
The story begins with Karen in the kitchen laboratory of Bán íon (meaning Pure White in Irish) cottage nestled in a small rural village in the north of Ireland.
Formally from a nursing background but as Karen's family grew she developed an interest in the use of natural, non toxic, irritant free skin care to use at home, as both of her children had infantile eczema. This led to a career change where I worked as a skincare consultant in a leading cosmetic/skincare company. Since becoming a grandmother and qualifying as a Master Herbalist four years ago, I decided to formulate my own botanical recipes for cold pressed soap, something my own grandmother did many years ago.
Karen uses only the highest quality of ingredients, free from SLS, paraben, SLES and palm oils, while manufacturing in a small batch process that produces minimal waste. It's these roots that continue to shape Bán íon Soap ethos.
Step inside a Victorian walled garden and visualise this pure, delicate, mindful space. Our natural soap is fragranced only by the vegetable oils used in our cold pressed process (olive, coconut and shea butter) Aromatic in themselves but enhanced on top with a sprinkling of organic, vegan, rose petals, chamomile flowers, peppermint and spearmint fine cut leaves. Balanced, floral, fresh, herby & light.
All soaps are packed in an eco friendly bag. When wet and full of soap they make a creamy foam for washing with and act as a very gentle exfoliator. Save the last bits of soap in the eco friendly bag and continue to use in the shower. Team up with our coconut fibre soap saver rest and now you don't have to waste even one little bit of your handmade soap.
Our organic, vegan Irish Rose soap is the centrepiece of our cottage collection. We are very fortunate at Bán íon cottage to be surrounded by beautiful Irish countryside and the joys of a garden filled with Roses & Lavender. Too special not to share with you all.
