Frenchsoaps - Our Story
What's new? September 2016
We are very pleased to announce that we have moved to a new warehouse! Onwards and upwards and all that! The new warehouse is a very special place providing training, work experience and responsible employment for young adults with a range of special needs. It is a unique place with a great atmosphere; an environment that is busy and professional, kind and supportive. Our team are a mix of supervisors and trainees that work on a range of processes from making up our beautiful boxes of soaps with ribbons to packing our customer orders with love and care (and tissue paper and gift notes!). Our team, just like us, love our products and take pride in being part of our growing business. We are proud to be part of this special place.
How did it all start?
Frenchsoaps was set up by two friends Sandra and Lizzy, who have a passion for beautiful, natural products and a love of French fragrance. We are based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. We specialise in naturally French soaps, body products, home fragrances and candles and have the widest range of French soaps available in the UK. Our products contain no parabens, no Sodium Laureth Sulfate and are phenoxyethanol free. They are made in the traditional way in savonneries and perfumers from all over France but particularly Provence, by specialist producers using local natural ingredients: Lavender from the fields of Provence, perfumes from the famous fragrance town of Grasse and other natural ingredients such as Seaweed from Brittany!
Our products are lovely to look at, smell beautiful, and are as simple and natural as possible.
We have close relationships with the savonnieres and perfumeries that we work with, we enjoy meeting them (well who wouldn't like a trip to France every now and then!) and we know that they share our values of natural, fragrant, simple products. All our manufacturers are family businesses and are extremely proud of their products.
We are committed to bringing you high quality, special and unique products not commonly available in the UK. Our search for these products has taken us to some varied and interesting places in France, from the traditional Savonnerie in bustling Marseille, steeped in history and tradition, to the fragrant, calm and tranquil Provencal villages in the foothills of Mont Ventoux and the Luberon.... and of course Paris!
We love our products and hope you do too! Why not get in touch with us? drop us an email, call us or leave a message on our Facebook page, we love to hear from you and we are happy to help you if you want advice or need some ideas. Let us know what you love (and what you don't) we get some great suggestions from our customers!
