What complements a Lime + Grapefruit soap?
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 Lime + Grapefruit soap is free from palm oil, parabens and harsh detergents.
