This is a regular chance to see a working soaperie which dates from the 1920s. It also happens to be the oldest and last working soaperie operating the coldprocess method in the world. The Cold Process is known as the natural way of soap making. Retaining the Oils natural glycerine (or glycerol) to help make the soap cleanse in very gentle way, retaining your skins natural oil mantle more effectively.

(Historically there were two  mainstream soapmaking methods, the Cold Process and the boiling process. Coldprocess soaps are much stickier and more humectant but are not suited to fast flow mass production. Boiling Process soaps have the glycerine removed chemically and are very easy to plod, mill,colour,fragrance and stamp at high production rates.)

The hand cutting assembly is unique in being a complete from new authentic traditional cold process equipment. Purchased in 1921 and used most days.

We have been growing a Yarrow lawn for over 19 years . Yarrow: Achillies Milliefolia, its Latin name, hints at its long tradition as a wound herb.

It takes many many years to establish.
