The science of Soap - here's how it kills Coronavirus

Updated: Jun 11

Did you know that our soap 'kills' Coronavirus?


When we wash our hands, our soap surrounds the virus on our skin and pierces the outer membrane - just like popping a balloon with a pin. This splits the virus apart and releases its contents allowing it to be washed away by the running water. Fact!


Add in the fact that all our soap bars are enriched with combinations of organic essential oils such as Lavender and Teatree, Lemongrass and Patchouli or May Chang, Lime and Eucalyptus, and Rose Geranium with Lemon, these have natural antibacterial and antiseptic as well as antiviral properties AND they smell AMAZING!! They feel great on the skin too!! Our mini-soaps and shampoo bars can now be purchased in hessian soap bags for individual use or as a multi-pack for use by the entire family.
