Our Story

Humble beginnings had Emma, a journalist, and her husband, Anthony, a Doctor, making soap in their kitchen after they grew tired of seeing nasty sulfates, parabens, detergents, and artificial fragrances amongst other irritants in store bought soap. Friends and family eventually cottoned on to their new hobby and fell in love with the all natural, vegan, palm oil free, sulfate free, paraben free, detergent free sudsy creations. A love that eventually outgrew Anthony and Emma’s kitchen and found them opening their first shop at South Melbourne market in 2013, where their soaps still have a loyal customer base.

Fast forward to today, and our soaps can be found in hundreds of stores across Australia and the world. But they are still all handmade in Dandenong, Melbourne.

At the ANSC we believe that our environment knows best when it comes to nourishing, and sustaining healthy beautiful skin. We only use the highest quality plant oils to create soap, and a skincare range for all skin types – even you sensitive little souls! The beautiful fragrances are created with pure essential oils, each with their own unique benefits. We have strict policies against animal testing and the use of palm oil, each product is guaranteed cruelty free, vegan, and palm oil free! It’s important for the community, and the culture of our team to give back, and so we hold regular fundraisers and donation systems for not-for-profit organisations!
