The Natural Soap Company makes some of the most
luxurious and beautiful soaps available anywhere in the world. Tucked away in Wells-next-the-Sea on the
North Norfolk coast, we are one of the oldest commercial handmade soap manufacturers in England. While we long ago
outgrew our kitchen table, we still insist on the finest-quality natural ingredients and only ever use aromatherapy-grade
essential oils for our scents and still hand-make, hand-cut and hand-wrap in small batches
to our own unique, and by some standards decadent, recipes.
Please enjoy your visit to our website it includes
a safe, secure on-line shop
linked to our first-class mail order service as well as details of our products for both the public and for wholesale and trade customers,
including hotels, B&Bs and shops. And if you're ever in our corner of Norfolk, why not drop in and see
us in our wonderful little shop right on Wells quayside?

We offer an efficient mail order service so you can buy our soaps any time you choose from this website. But if
you're out and about in North Norfolk, why not drop into our small but perfectly formed shop right on the quayside in Wells? The Soap Shop offers our
range of luxury soaps and toiletries hand-made just up the road as well as gift baskets, accessories and a sometimes eclectic selection of items from
other producers such as scented candles and holders. The shop is now open every day in season from 10am to 4pm and is easy to find... it's almost right
under the gantry on the landmark Granary building overlooking the harbour and marshes. It's not all bracing walks, muddy children, crab-lines and buckets you
know... pop in and pamper yourself!

Soap Shop Opening Times
Fri 30 May 2014
The Soap Shop is open Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 4pm all through the summer. Anita and Ruth and occasionally the Natural Soap Company's owner Sara would be delighted to serve you.
If it's hot and sunny and the shop looks a little empty, Anita is the lady sunning herself in the deck chair on the fisherman's quay opposite.
No longer all on our own
Fri 30 May 2014
Our little soap shop next to the famous granary building on Wells quay was never particularly hard to find but it was a little out on its own... on the way to the Chandlery and just round the corner from Platten's DIY perhaps but nearly a whole minute's stroll from the town's main shopping area on Staithe Street.
Things have changed with the completion of one of two new buildings on the site of the old Gray's Arcade building that was destroyed by fire in 2005. Quayside Court has three new shops on its ground floor... a wine merchant Cellar-by-the-Quay, a gallery Quayside Gallery and a nautically-themed clothes shop Ship To Shore. They're a bit bigger and fancier than the soap shop but we think they've chosen a good location.
Much the same has happened at our 'factory', the tucked-away industrial unit where we hand make and hand-wrap all of our soap and other goodies, as well... because the old caravan works behind is now home to a brand new CoOp supermarket!
So if you're in Wells, turn right when you get to the bottom of Staithe Stret and discover the town's new shopping quarter!
And if not, well, we'd be pleased as always to take an order off this website and send your soaps out to you.
The new Quayside Court building with three new shops then the estate agents...
... and finally our little soap shop still on the end, on the way to the Chandlery

Lavender Hand Cream
A silky lavender-scented handcream that absorbs quickly, leaving your hands soft and smooth and not greasy. One of our customers said "It's very lavendery!" and it's true, it is, owing to the beautiful lavender essential oil it contains.
A beautiful soap - and a perennial best-seller. Made with a mix of oils including apricot kernel oil and shea butter, the addition of essential oil of lavender plus finely powdered lavender flowers makes this a gentle exfoliating soap designed to leave skin cleansed and soothed.
Lavender Shower Gel
A gently foaming shower gel that will wash you without drying your skin. Scented with lavender essential oil to complement our Lavender Plus and White Lavender soaps.
