College Green Lemongrass, Ginger + Oat beer soap contains only natural ingredients:
Lemongrass essential oil: refreshing and stimulating, the antiseptic and astringent effects of lemongrass work well on oily or acne-prone skin. Deodorising and antibacterial, it is one of the key active ingredients in natural insect repellents. It’s fresh scent calms and fortifies nerves, soothing stress and anxiety, and giving an instant boost to tired minds
Ginger essential oil: antiseptic and antioxidant ginger has been used as a medicinal ingredient for thousands of years. It boosts circulation and provides warmth to revive tired, sore muscles. Ginger’s comforting, warming scent helps to lift fatigue and reduce feelings of stress and is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat emotional issues such as anxiety and low self confidence.
Oats: packed with antioxidants, calming oats act as a natural cleansing agent that doesn’t affect the skin’s pH balance, helping to maintain the skin’s moisture barrier to protect and heal dry skin. We use both finely ground and whole oats in our soap to gently exfoliate the skin.
Beer: we’re not really sure whether the beneficial B vitamins in beer will help prevent ageing and combat skin irritation once it goes through the soap making process, but we do know that it turns our soap into a beautiful, mellow amber colour. We use the brilliant range of Stroud Brewery beers.
Coconut oil: Moisturising and nourishing, coconut oil helps to heal irritated skin and has antifungal, antimicrobial, antioxidant and antibacterial properties.
Shea butter: rich in fatty acids, antioxidant carotenoids and vitamin E, shea butter helps to improve the condition of dry and mature skin. It’s skin-enriching properties sooth eczema, skin allergies and psoriasis.

How to make your natural soap last for longer
College Green soaps are proudly free from palm oil which is commonly used as a hardener in soaps and rich in natural glycerine, therefore they can be softer than many commercial bars. To ensure your soap lasts as long as possible, make sure it never sits in a puddle of water. Use a soap dish to allow air to flow around the soap, keeping it dry and longer lasting.
We sell a range of unique glass soap dishes made in Cornwall, and wooden soap dishes.
College Green soaps are all cut by hand. Each bar weighs a minimum of 100g – some will be heavier.
Made by hand in small batches in our Cotswold studio.
We use a traditional cold process method which creates a glycerine-rich soap, then cure each bar for a minimum of four weeks to create a beautifully mild, long lasting bar of soap.
College Green Lemongrass, Ginger & Oat beer soap is free from palm oil, parabens and harsh detergents.
