We now have approximately 7500 sq ft of warehouse and office space located in it's own plot on the Caddsdown Industrial Park. This growth is entirely due to our loyal customer base growing and growing, so we have to thank all of you for your valued custom over the years.

Our Story

THE SOAP KITCHEN, started in 2000 as small family run soap suppliers making quality cold process soaps from pure and natural ingredients. Over time we developed our own unique recipes as a result of lengthy experimentation which originally took place literally in the kitchen of our family home. Our original selection of quality hand made soaps were first thoroughly tested and approved by our family, friends, neighbours and their families and friends before ever being offered for sale.
In 2001, after having our soaps safety assessed, we moved into our shop premises and expanded the business to include stocking a range of soap making products, which we offered for sale to those who wanted to try the craft for themselves.
Over the years our business has grown and evolved into one of the leading suppliers of soap and toiletry making ingredients to the hobbyist and small business in Europe, but one thing remains constant and that is our commitment to customer service.
We take our business very seriously and without satisfied customers we would not be where we are today. Since starting in 2000 we have been committed to the core of our business which remains soapmaking, soap and toiletry supplies and ingredients and we now have space for large and comprehensive stocks of all the ingredients you're likely to need. Over time, our customers have suggested that we diversify into other areas and where we think they are complementary to our business we have done this, which has resulted in us now stocking a far wider selection of ingredients including those for people looking to use more natural products for cleaning and fragrance in their homes and work places. We have also taken on a wide range of products for the candle maker, which is an area we are also committed to. Many products we stock as part of our core business have many other uses and this is especially true of our large stocks of quality essential oils, which find their way into many marketplaces including aromatherapy and complementary therapy. Our large and diverse stocks of fragrances and flavours are increasingly being used far more widely than we originally anticipated.
We have shipping arrangements in place which allow us to ship virtually any quantity of our products throughout the UK, Europe and beyond at highly competitive prices.
These days, with our large Bideford premises, plus our investment in machinery and software, we are well placed to meet the needs of our customers. We design and manufacture our own range of soap moulds and offer our customers a bespoke service for mould making and small run bespoke label printing. This means our customers can now design their own soap moulds to include their own logos and can have their own matching labels printed to allow complete ranges of bespoke soaps and toiletries to be created at affordable prices in small quantities as required.
All our staff are completely dedicated to ensuring our customers receive the kind of service they expect and deserve, and we strive to offer our customers a large and diverse range of products and services. We are also teamed up with experienced consultants who have constructed some extremely cost-effective Cosmetic Product Safety Report solutions for our customers and over time we will extend these to provide wider and more bespoke services where required.
Our website is responsible both directly and indirectly for almost all our incoming business, so we concentrate our efforts in encouraging our customers to shop on-line, offering preferential prices to regular shoppers and trade prices to all our business customers. To obtain these prices all we ask is you take the time to Register on our website, although we do not insist you register simply to shop with us.
We are fortunate enough to receive regular praise from satisfied customers about our levels of service and diversity of products. We have also held the Feefo Gold standard for service since 2017.
