“We only have one skin, let us be as kind as we can to it….”

How it all started…

A birthday gift of an organic soap making kit from a dear friend many years ago , set me on this soapy path, I loved the process of combining my own fragrances and botanicals to create a unique bar of soap just for me.  I decided there and then, that I wanted to learn how to make soaps from scratch using the traditional  methods of days gone by so that I could be sure that what I was using on my skin daily, was as pure as it could be.

How the range has evolved…

All HuncaMunka soaps are  handmade on the edge of the Peak District, using only the finest oils, perfumes and butters that we can source.  Inspiration for all the fragrances and essential oils used to scent each bar is taken from childhood memories, years gone by and the changing seasons.  Many of the fragrances are made up from unique blends of essential oils which are concocted for your delectation to provide an aroma-based experience for both the body and the mind.

Our soap batches are purposely small, to ensure that every bar is checked for quality and consistency and do NOT contain any Sodium Laureth Sulfate, preservatives, animal products, petroleum products or parabens, the nasties found in mass manufactured soaps that can cause irritation to our precious skin.  It absolutely goes without saying that non of our products are tested on animals – ever.

Ingredients and packaging….

Each bar is brimming with natural glycerine and enriched with the finest oils and butters, thus not drying your skin in the way mass manufactured bars might.

We delight in sourcing vintage inspired beautiful fabrics to nestle our soaps in and strive, where possible, to package our soaps using only biodegradable materials.
