The Art of Soap Making
The love of Soap - where it all began
It all started with our Founder’s search for a premium, all-natural bar of soap crafted specifically for men. Unable to find one, he decided to create his own.
Working with artisan soap makers and expert essential oil blenders, Mark experimented with different ways to make soap, finally arriving at a 300 year old method called Triple Milled.
We continue this age-old artisanal method of making soap, right here in England in the beautiful East Sussex countryside.
Why Triple Milled and what is it?
Triple Milled soap, as its name suggests, is a process where the ingredients are milled together three times. Milling ensures that the ingredients are dispersed evenly throughout the soap bar resulting in superior longevity, form and fragrance until the very end. It also ensures a rich lather, something which other soap manufacturing processes are unable to match.
Triple Milled Soaps also contain less water due to the milling process which helps to remove excess air and moisture, and so unlike other artisan soaps including cold process soap, there is no messy, watery bar left in your shower
Soap enhanced with Shea butter and Vitamin E
Not satisfied with a regular soap blend, we decided to enhance the skin cleansing and restorative benefits of our Organic Triple Milled Soap block, with all-natural Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
Shea butter is fat that is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree, and provides superior skin cleansing and restorative benefits including boosting skin moisture, helping fight oily skin breakouts and soothing the skin with its anti-inflammatory properties. It also contributes to the rich lather which has become a signature of our soap blocks.
Vitamin E is well known to nourish and protect skin. With it’s antioxidant properties, Vitamin E fights off free radicals on the skin which are a result of the daily environmental stressors our skin faces each day from the pollution around us. Vitamin E is also a natural anti-inflammatory, so it can be soothing and help calm the skin.
Luxurious all-natural fragrances
As part of Mark’s passion to create a premium all-natural bar of soap, his journey took him to the world of natural essential oil blends to create the fragrances for our soaps.
Where the majority of soap manufactures rely on cheap synthetic fragrances packed with nasty chemicals, all-natural essential oils provide both superior fragrance and therapeutic benefits.
Our premium blends are unique to SCRUBD and we source only the finest essential oils from around the word. In addition to providing a luxury experience unmatched by many synthetic blends, our fragrances provide therapeutic benefits as is common with essential oils.
