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?

The Soap Shop, Quayside, Wells next the Sea

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.

Selected products

Milk Spice


Goat's milk has wonderful moisturising properties and makes a superior, creamy bar of soap. We add shea butter which is gentle and has superb skin-nourishing abilities. Sweet orange, clove bud, cinnamon leaf, nutmeg and cardamom essential oils are added for their delicious spicy scent.




Hemp oil is a gift to soap makers, containing as it does essential fatty acids, vitamins and enzymes that are easily absorbed by the skin. This wonderful oil, pressed from the seed of the Cannabis sativa plant (though containing no THC at all!) has been added to this lovely, rich, moisturising soap.


St Clements Shampoo


A gentle shampoo that cleans your hair! Refreshingly scented with a zingy blend of essential oils that includes lemongrass, litsea, orange, grapefruit and mandarin to complement our St Clements soap.
