Proudly Plastic Free Skincare
How’s your shower or bath looking? If it’s like most Australian bathrooms, you’ve probably got a vast collection of half-empty plastic bottles. Why not reduce all this plastic packaging by replacing your liquid soaps, gels, shampoos, conditioners, dishwashing liquid, detergent, etc with natural soap?

Harnessing the power of Australian ingredients
Australia has a reputation for producing some of the best natural and organic products on the planet. It is no different with the plant oils and essential oils that we produce.
Australia produces some of the world’s best natural oils and our products are testament to the fact that they make really beautiful soaps. Most of the oils that we use are produced by Australian farmers – we can even tell you where in Australia the ingredients come from.
Our soaps are made using the cold process method rather than the hot process method. Many soap makers introduce heat to the saponification process to quicken the curing time. We believe that this unnecessarily damages the integrity of the plant oil. After mixing the soap, we cure it for four to six weeks for it to set and neutralise and so that the integrity of the plant oil remains.
We do not use palm oil or animal fats that are used in many other commercial soaps. And by using only plant oils, we don’t have to use preservatives such as parabens.
We don’t use micro-plastics as exfoliants in any products. Instead, we use exfoliants such as pumice, lavender buds, coffee, seaweed, salt, activated charcoal and pink clay. The added bonus, these natural exfoliants – like our plant oils – are packed full of minerals and vitamins that are essential to skin health.
The plant oils that we use for the base of our soaps have been specifically chosen because of their moisturising qualities on the skin. Our proprietary process of making our soaps means that we are able to keep these oils in their most pure form. Our finished soaps are in fact 75-80 percent pure plant oil.
Our unique way of making our soaps in big blocks and cutting them down to smaller pieces, allows us to use a higher concentration of plant oil, which lowers the pH of our soaps (ph = 8-9 compared with up to pH 11).
During the saponification process, many soap makers remove the moisture boosting glycerine that is produced by the plant oil and water to use in other moisturising products – this is what causes other soaps to be drying. We leave the naturally occurring glycerine in to give our soaps their non-stripping properties. We even super fat our soaps (add extra oil) to ensure our soaps are the most moisturising that they can be.

Is Australian Natural Soap Company’s soap eco friendly?
Sustainability actually matters to us.
As a personal care company, we have a responsibility to be as socially and environmentally responsible as possible. In using our products, our customers can be assured that they are not only using a product that is best for their skin but also what is best for the planet.
We are more than just soap. We are an alternative to plastic. We want to help our customers make simple swaps that really will be gentler on the planet.
We take a different approach to others: A solid conditioner bar for the hair. Natural soap flakes for washing clothes. A shampoo bar for washing your dog. A pink clay bar for the face. They provide simple and easy solutions that minimise waste but don’t sacrifice on quality.
Also, because our soaps are completely natural, they are completely biodegradable. We use no petrochemicals or other nasties such as EDTA or Triclosan, which are terrible for the environment and natural ecosystems.
All our soaps are also proudly 100% palm oil free. The palm oil industry has been terribly devastating for orangutans in Malaysia and Indonesia. This is an issue that we are very passionate about. Orangutans are extremely intelligent and beautiful creatures that are worth much more than a cheap and not particularly healthy oil. And we think one of the best ways to help bring about change is to offer real alternatives to palm oil products.
To top it off, we donate 3% of every online sale to the Orangutan Project.
