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.
