Frequent and thorough hand washing can leave the skin feeling dry and tight. We wanted to create a soap that would be suitable for all the family and treat even the most delicate of skins with kindness.
With no added fragrance, this soaps carries simply the light and naturally herbal scent of Calendula flowers.
Each bar of soap weighs a minimum of 105 grams. Cold process soap making means you may find each bar varies a little in shape and colour.
As a soap rich in olive oil, it will become soft if not allowed to dry out between use. A soap saver will help you make the most of every last slither.
"I just want to thank you again for your kindly giving me a bar of your amazing Olive oil soap - it is the best ever! With so much hand washing going on it is keeping our hands soft and clean. X Sophie"

Calendula soap is made from the infusion of dried calendula flowers in a good quality carrier oil, such as olive or sunflower. Petals can be added for decorative effect, where uniquely in cold process soap, they retain their vibrant orange and yellow colours.
With a mild and gently cleansing lather, calendula soap can benefit those with dry, sensitive skin or skin conditions which are prone to irritation such as eczema or psoriasis. Its soothing nature makes it suitable for everyday use by all the family.
The sweet and musky scent of calendula flowers fade during the soap making process, leaving a delicate herbal aroma. Whilst essential oils or fragrance may be added, the natural lightly scented of calendula soap is soothing and makes a good neutral choice.
A gentle and unscented soap such as goats’ milk and honey is a good alternative to calendula soap if you are looking to avoid any potential allergens. Another option might be Lavender & Oatmilk, which is enjoyed for its calming properties.
The calendula soap was part of our third order from Soap Folk, we haven’t actually sampled it yet but we’re sure it will be just as good as all your other soaps have been. We are very impressed with your soaps particularly during this time when we are constantly washing our hands. They don’t dry your hands like other brands. Thank you Soap Folk.
Beautiful aromas and lovely packaging. I put them in my hand thrown ceramic soap dishes and they made gorgeous gifts for my family.
This hand made product is the best we have ever tried. For anyone experiencing sensitive skin, it has a wonderful creamy texture, It cleans too! We've been customers now for 5 years and wouldn't buy anything else. Jeanette & Roy (Mid-Wales)
I bought this soap because my hands had been shredded raw by cheap supermarket soap. It fixed them almost overnight. It’s such a soft dreamy lather and super gentle, I love it!
