The Somerset Toiletry Co. are thrilled to be introducing Ministry of Soap at Harrogate Home & Gift trade fair (18-21st July). Despite the challenges of the pandemic, a new manufacturing facility has been created in Somerset to develop sustainable soap, made using RSPO certified palm oil.


“We are proud to be manufacturing in the UK and feel strongly about the environment, doing what we can to protect and conserve with full transparency.’’  Sakina Buoy, Chairman

The Ministry of soap’s mission is to create beautiful soap with minimal impact on the environment. The use of segregated sustainable palm oil, certified by RSPO ensures the palm oil used is only sourced from locations where native communities, wildlife and habitats are not threatened.

27 beautifully designed soaps include eco-friendly, recyclable packaging. Ideal gifts, vegetable-based soap bars are cruelty-free and suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. Triple-milled soap bars will ensure the highest quality and be naturally coloured with no colourants or dye. Coordinating ceramic soap dishes and a pumice stone will also be available along with multiple in-store display units.
