The Good Zest Company, based in the UK, offers a range of natural soap bars that are free from synthetic fragrances, preservatives, and other harmful ingredients.
We ethically source only the highest quality, certified organic and natural ingredients, and manufacture all our organic soap bars here in the UK.
What is Organic Soap?
Organic soap is a block or bar of hard cleansing ingredients that is made using natural ingredients that have been grown without the use of synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This means that the ingredients used in organic soap are free from harmful chemicals that can cause skin irritation or other health problems.
Natural Bar Soap
These natural soap bars are designed to cleanse and nourish your skin and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Using certified 100% organic citrus essential oils and other organic and natural ingredients, we produce our own high quality, expertly formulated blends that we use in the manufacture of our natural soap bars UK.
Each organic soap bar contains an optimised amount of citrus essential oil that provides multiple natural benefits to the skin. With added natural oils and other organic ingredients our organic bar soap should be your first choice when looking for natural hand and face cleansing.
Natural Hand Soap
The most common use for soap is to wash the hands. Our organic hand soap collection contains organic hand soaps that are gentle on the skin while being very effective at cleansing and protecting your hard worked hands.
We have a range of natural hand soap made with certified organic citrus essential oils and other organic ingredients
Choose from our deep cleansing Organic Handmade Lemon Zest Soap for grimy, oily and greasy hands , our moisturising Organic Handmade Orange Zest Soap or our very gentle but effective Organic Handmade Lime Zest Soap.
Organic Soap Bars
At the heart of The Good Zest Company's organic soap bars are three key ingredients: lemon, lime, and orange essential oils.
These citrus oils have been used for centuries for their cleansing and rejuvenating properties, and they offer a wide range of benefits for the skin.
Benefits of Lemon Essential Oil in Organic Soap
Lemon essential oil is known for its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, making it an excellent ingredient for natural hand soap.
It can help to kill germs and bacteria on the skin, and its highly astringent properties make it a very effective cleanser for oily or acne-prone skin. Our lemon essential oil based soap is great at penetrating deep into pores to cleanse and remove grime and oily dirt from hard worked hands.
In addition to its cleansing properties, lemon essential oil is also rich in antioxidants and vitamins, which can help to nourish and protect the skin.
It helps to brighten dull or discoloured skin, and its high vitamin C content can help to stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone.
Our organic lemon soap is great for tightening pores and smoothing skin texture.
Benefits of Lime Essential Oil in Organic Soap
Lime essential oil is another powerful ingredient in our natural soap bars. It is very effective but is a very gentle soap, ideal for those even with extremely sensitive skin.
Like lemon essential oil, it has antibacterial and antiviral properties that can help to protect the skin from harmful germs and bacteria and its astringent properties make it an effective but gentle cleanser for oily or acne-prone skin.
It can also help to reduce the appearance of pores as it gently tightens the skin and evens out skin tone.
In addition to its cleansing properties, lime essential oil is also rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, which can help to protect the skin from free radical damage and promote collagen production.
Its fresh, citrus scent can help to uplift your mood and promote relaxation without the use of artificial scents and chemicals.
Benefits of Orange Essential Oil in Organic Soap
Orange essential oil is the third key ingredient in The Good Zest Company's natural soap bars. It is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, which can help to nourish and protect the skin. Its astringent, antibacterial and antifungal properties make it an effective cleanser for the skin, and its high vitamin C content can help to stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It can also help to soothe skin irritation and inflammation and has excellent natural moisturising properties, making it a great choice for sensitive or dry skin.
In addition to its cleansing and nourishing properties, orange essential oil has a bright, uplifting scent that can help to improve your mood and reduce stress as described in our sniffing an orange can help you relax article.
The Benefits of Organic Soap
In addition to the benefits of the essential oils, The Good Zest Company's organic soap bars offer you a wide range of other benefits for your skin.
Unlike many conventional soaps, which can strip the skin of its natural oils and leave it feeling dry and tight, our organic soap is designed to nourish and hydrate your skin.
The natural ingredients in our organic soap are carefully selected to provide a range of benefits for the skin. For example, glycerin is a humectant that helps to attract and retain moisture in the skin, while aloe vera is well known for its soothing and healing properties.
The combination of these and other natural ingredients in our organic soap bars help to cleanse and nourish your skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and healthy.
Another benefit of our organic soap is that it is completely free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances that can irritate the skin. Conventional soaps often contain ingredients like sodium lauryl sulphate ( SLS ), which can strip the skin's natural oils and cause dryness and irritation.
Our organic soap, on the other hand, is made from 100% natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin and free from harsh chemicals.
Organic soap is also better for the environment. Organic soap is made using sustainable farming practices, which helps to reduce the environmental impact of soap production. Organic farmers also use fewer resources, such as water and energy, compared to conventional farming methods.
Organic soap is biodegradable. As organic soap is made using natural ingredients that break down easily in the environment, it is a great choice for outdoor enthusiasts and ecologically minded people.
We are Leaping Bunny approved and are fully committed to cruelty-free practices, which means that the ingredients we buy and the products we make do not get tested on animals unlike the commercially available soaps that use chemicals and artificial scents.
Here at The Good Zest Company, we are committed to using sustainable practices in all aspects of our business, from ethically sourcing ingredients to providing recyclable packaging.
Organic Soap Ingredients
Our Organic soap bars contain some common ingredients. Here is a list of our common ingredients and their benefits.
- Aqua: Water helps to hydrate and moisturise the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple and provides a mixing medium for the soap.
- Glycerin: Glycerin is a natural humectant, which means it helps to draw moisture to the skin. This helps to prevent dryness and flakiness.
- Sodium Palmate and Sodium Cocoate: These are two types of natural oils that are commonly used in organic soap. They help to cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
- Sucrose: Sugar acts as a natural exfoliant, helping to remove dead skin cells and leave the skin looking brighter and more radiant. We use sugar in our soap rather than the organic sea salt flakes that we use in our body polish as it is less abrasive. \this is because soap is used a lot more frequently than body polish. This allows us to produce a mildly exfoliating organic soap while eliminating any skin damage from the overuse of sea salt flakes which has an abrasive nature and is an aggressive exfoliator that should be used infrequently.
- Decyl Glucoside: This is a natural surfactant that helps to create a lather in the soap. It is gentle and non-irritating, making it a great choice for people with sensitive skin. We use this instead of the commonly used SLS which is a sulphate that is under increasing scrutiny for its possible side effects as you can read in our Sulphates And SLS article
- Sodium Chloride: Commonly known as salt, sodium chloride helps to detoxify and purify the skin. We use a small amount of small salt crystals to help detoxify the skin.
- Citric Acid: Citric acid is a natural preservative that helps to keep the soap fresh and free from harmful bacteria.
- Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder: Aloe vera is a natural moisturiser that helps to soothe and hydrate the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a great choice for people with sensitive skin.
