Generations of experience and passion behind every bar of organic soap: Founded in 1922, Caurnie Soap is the oldest soap maker in both Scotland and the Celtic world, still using the same soap cutting equipment the founders used.
Each unit of soap is cold-process hand made to vegan standards, using a highly skilled double saponification process that produces an especially gentle result. All the soaps are suitable for delicate skins or allergy sufferers who prefer natural skin care to provide solutions.
The manufacturing process uses the principals of low energy usage and hand crafting; Caurnie are promoters of minimal-to-no-impact packaging and biodegradable ingredients.
