Made with honey from thriving bee hives in the Sussex countryside. (The Soap People love bees and only take a little honey from them leaving well stocked colonies.) The winning combination of honey and oats is widely used in many beauty products for good reason. Honey has been highly prized over the centuries for it’s amazing, beneficial properties. It is a humectant, holding moisture to the skin and packed with antioxidants. Oats also soothe with their anti-inflamatory, emollient characteristics, softening and helping to relieve itchy, dry and uncomfortable skin.
Suitable for most skin types and approved for use on very young skin.

No plastic packaging
Obviously no plastic bottles as the idea is to ditch shower gel and liquid hand wash bottles.
We use recycled, biodegradable packaging.
No palm oil
If you study the small print on anything from cake to curry sauce in the supermarkets you will more than likely discover that palm oil is lurking in the ingredients under some guise, but it is also widely used in the beauty industry. Manufacturers use it a lot even in the humble bar of soap – but why? Yes it does create a hard, long lasting bar of soap, but with the negative impact that palm oil plantations are having on the environment we believe that this is not a strong enough reason to use it when there are such great alternatives. Around the world the demand for palm oil contributes to widespread deforestation and is pushing wildlife to extinction.
We don’t need to use palm oil when there are loads of other gorgeous oils that are far more beneficial to your skin and the environment!
We include olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and other nourishing ingredients like shea butter and clays.
No SLS’s, No preservatives, No artificial fragrances or colourings
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a known skin irritant and it is harmful to fish and other aquatic animals and pollutes our groundwater – so we’re obviously not using this!
Neither do we use parabens which have been linked to health issues or chemical colourings just to make the products look bright and whacky. Unnecessary chemicals on my skin? No thanks.
We do use essential oils and plant based ingredients that have known beneficial properties. Basically we keep it as simple as possible.
No animal testing
Animal testing is no longer permitted in Europe but many of the big brands choose to market their products to China where animal testing is compulsory.
We test on children, family and friends and not on a compulsory basis!
Of course all our soaps recipes have been approved by chemists and are officially registered.
All proceeds from BFT shop products go towards our work creating habitats for pollinators to thrive.
We deliver to all UK locations, if you are outside of the UK please get in touch with us.
