A Tradition of Excellence
The Caurnie Soaperie in Kirkintilloch first opened in 1922. The aim was simple: to create Scottish natural skin care products from organic herbs and essential oils. The business met with instant success. Today, Caurnie is a byword for the best in natural soap and fresh herbal body care.
The Soaperie has a unique quality with customers remarking that it has an "Old Curiosity Shop" feel with a waft of whatever Essential oil we are currently using in the manufacture. Hand made and authentic 1920s from the granite floor to the soap splattered rafters while soap cutting tools give a faithful adherence to a tradition worth conserving. You can still see much of this from our viewing area between 10am and 2pm on Tuesdays when our soaperie is open to visitors who want to smell our soaps in person.
The original pure soap was delivered to customers doors on a monthly basis till the mid 1970s. In the 1970s whole-food shops across the UK and further stocked the UFO shaped vegan soaps in cucumber, rose, lavender, mandarin, almond and fern to name a few. Since the 1990s Caurnie soap has been available at The Country Living shows and is regularly to be found at Scottish Farmers' Markets across Scotland.
