Our Countryfile piece was included again in a special Cottage Industries episode of the programme this New Year.
What a wonderful experience to have been part of. We are so grateful to have been given the opportunity to share the story of our little boy’s eczema and subsequently to have been able to help so many other sufferers, both big and little. Having ditched the prescribed creams in favour of our very first unscented, natural soap Sebastian’s skin is now as clear as anything and he can even indulge in the odd coloured bubble bath now and again!!
Our new novelty range was inspired by his story and aimed at making bath times fun for little ones (let’s face it, 6pm is not every parents’ favourite part of the day!). From Bertie Bee to Stan the Stegosaurus each name has been carefully chosen predominantly by focus groups with an average age of 5, together with a selection of toy animals Walt Disney would be proud of. As with all our soaps they are made with the most natural of ingredients and no added nasties – SLS, parabens or palm oil.
For the bigger sufferers amongst us we would always recommend using the unscented soaps of which we now have 2. The first original unscented bar is fantastic for all skin types and has proved extremely successful on a range of skin conditions from eczema to psoriasis. The latest addition to our unscented range is made with fresh local goat’s milk which produces a wonderfully creamy, moisturising lather.
As we have always said we can’t prescribe soaps to suit specific skin conditions but we can share with you our own experiences and those of others who have benefited from using our products. Here are just a few testimonials we have received over the last 2 years (and a HUGE thank you to all who have given feedback!).
April 2018: I started using goat’s milk soap to stop the skin on my arms and legs getting flaky, especially in winter. It works! I can thoroughly recommend it. And it feels lovely and silky too.
Feb 2018: My mum brought me an amazing soap which was featured on country file in 2016 which literally cleared my little boys eczema overnight.
Oct 2017: Hi. Just to let you know the soaps arrived today, thank you so much. My daughter has used it twice already and we can’t believe the result. Will let you know how we go. Very happy and excited.

Aug 2017: My grandchildren suffer from eczema and we were told by our friends to try using the Dartmoor unscented soap. Although it is still early days the soap seems to have eased the discomfort so hopefully with further use it will do the trick.
