THE AUSTRALIAN SOAP KITCHEN
The Australian Soap Kitchen’s focus is to use only the finest and purist ingredients, and simply produce all natural, vegan, palm oil-free, eco-friendly, skin-loving and nourishing soap. They use Australian sourced and made ingredients from Australian producers, and only seek non-Australian alternatives in the event where a local ingredient is unavailable.
Sara from The Australian Soap Kitchen feels that it is important to support fellow Australian businesses and farmers, and by sourcing locally, ‘ingredient miles’ is kept at a minimum. This is Sara’s way of respecting, cherishing and celebrating the wonderful resources we have in Australia, and also doing her part in looking after our ever-giving earth. Moreover, certified organic ingredients are incorporated wherever possible.
The process used to make the soap range is that of the traditional cold-pressed method. This allows for the goodness in all the ingredients incorporated into each soap to be retained as much as possible. All of the soaps are handcrafted. This means that the entire soap range is made in small batches and are hand mixed, poured and cut. The resulting product – no two pieces of soap are the same!

Where do you get your inspiration?
"After having my two children, I began to increasingly question the ingredients in my children’s wash products. I soon realised what we put on our skin is just as important as what we put in our bodies and felt the need to develop an all natural alternative."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"We love all of our soaps but if we had to choose one, it would have to be the Soothing Olive natural soap. Containing only Australian organic extra virgin olive oil, this soap makes a gentle and moisturising soap for even the most sensitive skin."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"We love working with Australian produced extra virgin olive oil, macadamia oil and avocado oil for their skin-nurturing properties and the Australian produced essential oils of eucalyptus, lavender, lemon myrtle, peppermint, rosalina and tea tree for their divine aroma and positive effects on the body and mind."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"We are looking to expand on our liquid soap offerings."
Describe your products in three words...
